Cyral named Top InfoSec Innovator for 2022 for its cloud-native data security platform
Cyral, a leader in cloud-native data security, today announced that it has been named a winner in the Top InfoSec Innovator Awards for 2022. The award is in its tenth year and recognizes information security cyber defense companies that can prove their unique and compelling value proposition. Judges compare thousands of companies, looking for the most innovative options for stopping breaches and securing data.
“We’re pleased to name Cyral as a winner among a small, elite group of cybersecurity innovators for 2022,” said Gary Miliefsky of Cyber Defense Media Group.
Cyral’s platform takes a unique approach to database security with account discovery, which allows customers to not only identify which sensitive data exists and where, but also enforce least privilege access through the knowledge of who or what has access to sensitive information. Access is then authorized through controls like multi-factor authentication (MFA), field-level policies, just-in-time approvals, and seamless integration with an organization’s existing Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions. Even if hackers are able to penetrate beyond these controls, Cyral runs risk-based data security governance, which places an exfiltration cap on sensitive data, as set by a customer’s security leader.
“We make data breaches uninteresting to hackers,” said Manav Mital, CEO and Co-Founder of Cyral. “What’s the point of working your way through multiple layers of security if at the end, you can’t exfiltrate data? Cyber Defense Media Group recognized this differentiator, which is what makes this award so special to us.”
All winners were announced today at cyberdefenseawards.com as well as in Cyber Defense Media Group’s Black Unicorn and Infosec Innovators Report Special Edition.
