SUNNYVALE, CA — April 16, 2018— Arctic Wolf Networks, a leading security operations center (SOC)-as-a-service company, today announced that it has been selected as the Hot Company to Watch in Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) for Cyber Defense Magazine’s InfoSec Awards, an annual review of the hottest, most innovative, and cutting-edge infosec companies delivering next-generation industry products and services.
“Most companies do not even know they are targets of an APT until the damage has been done, and then it becomes a mad scramble to contain the damage,” said Brian NeSmith, co-founder and CEO at Arctic Wolf Networks. “Our unique technology, combining human and machine intelligence can detect APTs before criminals are able to inflict damage. We are proud to have been selected as part of the elite group of InfoSec Award winners, validating that our AWN CyberSOC leads the pack in terms of providing the most effective security against advanced persistent threats.”
Founded in 2012, Arctic Wolf has seen dynamic expansion and success, with 300 percent year-over-year growth and nearly $45 million raised in funding. Arctic Wolf’s AWN CyberSOC™ is the industry’s only SOC-as-a-service that can be deployed in minutes and provide value from day one.
“With cybercrime continuing to gain momentum, surpassing global drug crime last year and reaching over $600B in theft and damages, we are proud to recognize Arctic Wolf as an award-winning innovator, offering a new approach to defeat these criminals,” said Pierlugi Paganini, editor-in-chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.
The Cyber Defense Magazine team conducted a rigorous selection process to identify the 200 winners from a pool of nearly 3,000 companies, large and small, who create and offer the most respected infosec products and services. The nominees were evaluated on their drive for innovation and success in helping customers combat cyberattacks and comply with regulations. This year’s judging was the most challenging to date, a reflection on the growing cyber defense industry.
