LightCyber, a leading provider of Behavioural Attack Detection solutions, announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Gonen Fink, Chief Executive Officer of LightCyber, to its 2016 list of Top 100 Executives. This annual list recognises leaders from the technology industry who have played an integral role in shaping today’s IT channel, whether by driving huge cultural shifts, creating rich new opportunities or forging innovative new routes to success. Mr. Fink was also named to the Top 25 Disruptors List.
The nature of security has changed dramatically over the past several years. Daily headlines of major data breaches discovered far too late are the norm and are costing businesses and organisations upwards of $4 billion per year. Besides loss of Personally Identifiable Information (PII), thousands of cases of the theft of intellectual property and other corporate secrets go unreported or announced. Attacks are targeted and carefully planned by criminal organisations in a way that can go undetected for months or even longer. According to a survey of those attending the Black Hat conference last week in Las Vegas, 72 percent expected to be hit by a major data breach within the next year.
LightCyber has developed a unique approach to pinpoint network intruders that are actively at work trying to locate and gain assets to valuable assets. With a high degree of precision and low number of security alerts, the LightCyber Magna platform detects external attackers or malicious insiders before theft or damage is likely to occur.
“The executives on our 2016 Top 100 list have led their companies to extraordinary achievements, both technological and entrepreneurial,” said Robert Faletra, Chief Executive Officer of The Channel Company. “We congratulate each of this year’s Top 100 Executives and celebrate their trailblazing contributions to the advancement of the IT channel.”
