SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SafeBreach, the leading provider of Breach and Attack Simulation, has been named the winner of the “Innovation Through Technology Award” presented by the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce as part of its 26thAnnual Excellence in Business (a.k.a. “Ebbies”) 2017 Awards. The “Innovation Through Technology Award” is given to a San Francisco technology-led business focused on solving problems and increasing efficiency within businesses or the community. The SafeBreach Breach and Attack Simulation Platform helps organizations validate their defenses against hackers by continuously simulating actual cyberattacks using the same techniques as the adversary. The technical innovations of this platform led to the creation of a new product category in cybersecurity that leading analyst firm Gartner has identified as Breach and Attack Simulation.

SafeBreach's groundbreaking platform simulates breaches and attacks by providing a "hacker's view" of an enterprise's security posture to proactively predict attacks, validate security controls and improve security operations center (SOC) analyst response. The platform allows organizations of any size to safely validate security defenses by testing them against actual attack methodologies, continuously and automatically. This means companies can identify breach scenarios before they occur, then use that knowledge to close the security gaps in their environment.

“At a time when boards of directors, company executives and the public are asking, ‘Are we secure?’ SafeBreach provides the answer—and the insights needed to fix the problem if the answer is no,” said Guy Bejerano, co-founder and CEO of SafeBreach. “Having our dedicated work recognized by the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, home to some of the most advanced technology companies in the nation, gives us a great sense of validation.”

Bejerano and co-founder & CTO Itzik Kotler founded SafeBreach in 2014 to give organizations the ability to simulate hacker breach methods to proactively predict breach scenarios and remediate them in advance of a breach. Assisting these efforts, SafeBreach has developed a Hacker's Playbook™ - analysis of real-world deployments on breach methods and scenarios across the entire kill chain. This playbook of breach methods is backed by security research and breach investigations to keep up with successful and evolving techniques used by attackers, i.e. WannaCryPetya, and most recently US-CERT Alert TA17-318A and US-CERT Alert TA17-318B.
