BNP Paribas Bank Polska Joins Cynet Product Advisory Board in Mutual Effort to Build Industry’s Best Breach Protection Platform
BNP Paribas Bank Polska, and Cynet, Tel Aviv-based cyber security company, have joined together to share knowledge and feedback on the product advisory board for Cynet 360, the industry’s first autonomous breach protection platform. The security experts of BNP Paribas Poland recognized the value of Cynet’s Sensor Fusion™ technology, providing automation of monitoring and control, attack prevention and detection, and response orchestration, and will share their expertise with Cynet in the mission of achieving the industry’s best anti-breach platform.
NEW YORK, New York — November 19, 2019 — Cynet, pioneers of the autonomous breach protection platform (www.cynet.com) and BNP Paribas Bank Polska, a universal bank listed on the Warsaw stock exchange (https://www.bnpparibas.pl), today announced the beginning of a new cooperation between the two companies. The cooperation includes the joining of BNP Paribas’s security experts to the product advisory board of Cynet, with the mission of sharing knowledge and feedback in the effort to provide the industry’s best anti-breach solution.
The cooperation was born out of Cyber Challenge, an invitational Proof of Value that BNP Paribas held on February 6th in Krakow with Cynet and its partner BA Service. The POV was a part of a wider test that BNP Paribas security team held for several leading Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) security vendors, by performing different types of attacks on each of the vendor’s security solutions in real time. . The team at BNP Paribas Bank Polska recognized Cynet’s approach as most flexible out of all security vendors – combining all the fundamental capabilities of NGAV, EDR, UBA, Network Analytics and Deception solutions, plus 24/7 backing of CyOps, Cynet’s team of SOC analysts and researches providing managed detection and response. In the scope of the new cooperation, the bank’s cybersecurity team will share their input as part of Cynet’s product advisory board. As part of this agreement, they will also be using the Cynet solution on premise, testing and sharing their results.
“Our bank’s security and business continuity department faces new challenges every day. We must constantly be one step ahead of the attackers, anticipate their actions and protect our clients. Cyber Challenge is a non-standard approach allowing us to test our protection against any potential threat. With the Cynet 360 platform, we saw a solution that understood that what worked yesterday might not be enough tomorrow – security is about anticipating what an attacker might do next. We see this as an opportunity to share our frontline expertise with a solution that realizes the importance of thinking outside the box, combining our knowledge to create the industry’s best anti-breach solution,” said Krzysztof Słotwinski, CSO of BNP Paribas Bank Polska.
“We are excited about being able to integrate the feedback of BNP Paribas’s security team – it adds valuable insight into the real-world situations that the Cynet platform will encounter on a regular basis. The fact that the Cynet platform came out on top when compared to the industry’s leading contenders is reflective of the hard work and expertise of our team. Couple this with the expertise and input of BNP Paribas’s security leaders, and we’ve got a winning combination. We are pushing hard to the next level as we continue on this mutual mission to improve product quality and provide customers with the best security available, bar none,” said Eyal Gruner, Cynet president and co-founder.

Cynet 360 is the world’s first autonomous breach protection platform that consolidates and automates monitoring and control, attack prevention and detection, and response orchestration across the entire environment. Cynet 360 delivers these capabilities by pioneering the use of Cynet Sensor Fusion™ to continuously collect and analyze all endpoint, user, file and network activities across the protected environment. This makes it the only platform capable of seeing the true context of each activity and radically different from any siloed endpoint or network solution that merely monitors parts of the overall activity, resulting in reduced accuracy and protection scope.
Through its complete threat coverage, Cynet 360 eliminates the need of complex multi-product security stacks, making robust breach protection within reach for any organization, regardless of its size and security skills.
