ESET wins two Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Awards at RSA 2018

As RSA 2018 kicks off in San Francisco, Cyber Defense Magazine announced today that IT security leader ESET is taking home two of their annual InfoSec Awards.

ESET was the sole winner in the InfoSec Research category, and one of the winners in the Best Endpoint Security category.

In its 30 years of business, ESET has excelled in both technology innovation and malware research, and now protects over 110 million users across the globe.  

ESET’s global research team has long been revered for the work it has done tracking, analyzing and communicating cyber threats. From cyber-espionage groups, to nation-state attackers, ESET has been behind some of the most important and influential research including Industroyer and Petya/NotPetya.

In June 2017, ESET released its findings on Industroyer (discovered by ESET), which was the first piece of malware that demonstrated the ability to control electrical substations. Industroyer caused a blackout in Kiev, Ukraine. ESET’s discovery was critically important in the realm of industrial control cybersecurity (ICS) as it exemplified how malware can negatively impact physical ICS controls.

ESET Endpoint Security is used by some of the most iconic brands in the world, and has steadily incorporated layered technology and machine learning. Gartner recently awarded ESET with the Gartner Peer Insights Customer Choice Awardfor Endpoint Protection Platforms. ESET Endpoint Security was also one of the few security products that actually stopped the spread of the outbreak of WannaCry due to its innovative AI-based Network Attack Protection module, a layer of security that ESET introduced in 2015.

“With cybercrime continuing to gain momentum, surpassing global drug crime last year and reaching over $600 billion in theft and damages, we are proud to see this company as an award-winning innovator, offering a new approach to defeat these criminals,” said Pierlugi Paganini, editor in chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.
