Cynet Named a “Pioneer in XDR” by eSecurityPlanet
Cynet was recently recognized as one of the top XDR providers in 2021 by eSecurityPlanet.com. The website is run by a team of expert reviewers and researchers and explores a wide range of products every year. In 2021, Cynet was named among the best XDR platforms in the field, with the website noting that
“Cynet’s built an impressive solution set that includes AV, EDR, UEBA, incidence response, and network analysis. Together, these technologies combine to produce a platform dubbed Cynet 360. Boasting it as the world’s first autonomous breach protection platform, Cynet’s trinity of solutions within Cynet 360 is XDR, response automation, and MDR.”
Among other accolades, the reviewers also highlighted Cynet’s outstanding performance in the 2020 MITRE ATT&CK evaluation (you can read more about Cynet’s MITRE results here). Additionally, the reviewers noted that Cynet scored 4.8 out of 5 on Gartner Peer Insights.
This isn’t the first time Cynet has been rated highly by eSecurity Planet (Cynet 360 was also listed as one of the top EDR providers of 2021). In a deep dive into the Cynet platform, eSecurity Planet found several other highlights.
A deep dive into Cynet
The company’s review of Cynet showed there are several areas where the platform stands out. One of the top benefits, according to eSecurity Planet, is the range of features available to Cynet users. Due to the ever-growing need for better detection and response, Cynet’s centralized platform, which includes EDR, NGAV, network detection and user behavior rules and deception technology, gives security teams a single pane of glass view into their environment, and the tools to orchestrate their defenses.
Additionally, the review mentioned Cynet’s response automation capabilities, which let organizations respond more effectively and quickly to emerging threats and breaches in their environment. The review also noted that Cynet is a pioneer in the still-nascent XDR space and praised its multi-layered protection.
Finally, the eSecurity Planet review shone a spotlight on Cynet’s 24/7 managed detection and response (MDR) service, CyOps. As a part of the standard license for any customer, CyOps provides organizations with the support of a team of trained researchers and analysts who perform threat hunting, monitoring, and research.
