company overview


Cybereason is the champion for today’s cyber defenders with future-ready attack protection. We believe that as defenders we are stronger as one. Together, we have the wisdom to uncover, correlate and understand multiple threats. We deliver the precision to end cyber attacks in an instant — on computers, mobile devices, servers, on premise or in the cloud — to everywhere the battle moves.


The Cybereason Defense Platform moves beyond endless alerting to instead recognize, expose, and end malicious operations before they take hold. We empower defenders to instantly visualize malicious operations from root cause to every affected endpoint with real-time, multi-stage displays of all attack details. The result: Defenders can detect attacks in seconds and remediate them in minutes.

Future-proof Vigilance: the recipe for security from now on

The real challenge in security is to be adaptive, flexible, diverse in a way that makes us better at innovating, faster and fitter than our adversaries. That is the key to vigilance, and the real goal is to move to more-and-more future-proof technologies and methodologies. From mobile to the cloud, from big data to AI, from 5G to IoT and beyond, we must be steps ahead if we are to collectively enjoy the benefits of the connected world. The key to future-proofing our technology stacks in a world of increasing hostility is fundamentally to change our approaches and our cultures. Sam Curry will cut through the noise in this session and provide the recipe for how we should all channel our security practices and innovation going forward.
