Carbon Black Named Winner of Endpoint & Mobile Data Protection Award by NetworkWorld Asia
Leader in Next-Generation Endpoint Security bags two awards at Information Management Awards 2017
SINGAPORE — June 13 2017 — Carbon Black, the leader in next-generation endpoint security, has been named a joint winner in NetworkWorld Asia’s (NWA) Endpoint & Mobile Data Protection category at the Information Management Awards 2017. Carbon Black was also named a winner of the Top 8 Asia Pacific Security Vendors To Look Out For.
Inaugurated in 2012, the NWA awards recognize Asia’s leaders and their technological advancements in information, security, storage, and data management. Guided by a team of experienced editors and a panel of more than 100 CIO advisers with domain expertise and deep insights in information management, finalists are judged on reputation, acceptance of technology, features, and USPs of the solution as well as end-user feedback.
These awards reflect Carbon Black’s growth in the Asia Pacific region, where the company initially established business operations in 2015. Working with key partners across the Asia Pacific region, Carbon Black enables companies and governments to protect their endpoints and equips them to handle today’s advanced cyber threats. With the acquisition of Confer in 2016, Carbon Black has further built capabilities for organizations of all sizes to enhance their cyber defense and response mechanisms.
Carbon Black has also pioneered a next-generation technology known as “streaming prevention.” Powering Cb Defense, streaming prevention was designed to prevent both malware and non-malware attacks by leveraging event stream processing, the same technology that revolutionized algorithmic day-trading.
“Cybersecurity has gained a lot of traction in APAC in the past year. Global cyberattacks such as the WannaCry incident served as a wake-up call to organizations and security vendors, emphasizing the importance of a solution that protects against both malware and non-malware threats,” said Kane Lightowler, Managing Director APJ for Carbon Black. “At Carbon Black, we are continuously analyzing the sophistication and evolution of cyber threats, enabling us to provide a prevention, detection and response solution that protects the most critical and vulnerable parts of an organization – their endpoints.”
Earlier this year, Carbon Black was also named a leader in the IDC MarketScape, Worldwide Endpoint Specialized Threat Analysis and Protection (STAP) 2017 Vendor Assessment.
“Within less than 3 years since its entrance into the Asia Pacific market, Carbon Black has made a significant mark with its endpoint and mobile data protection solutions among end-user organizations,” said Victor Ng, Editor-in-Chief of NetworkWorld Asia and Enterprise Group Editorial Director at Questex Asia. “This Award is testimony to Carbon Black’s efficacy in addressing the ever-increasing sophistication of cyber threats especially in the increasingly mobile business world of today.”
