BE'ER SHEVA, Israel, May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Morphisec, the leading provider of Moving Target Defense (MTD) endpoint threat prevention solutions, today announced it has been recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor in Security for Technology and Service Providers.
Each year, the leading analyst firm Gartner identifies new Cool Vendors considered innovative or transformative in key technology areas and publishes a series of research reports.
"It's a great honor to be recognized as a Cool Vendor by Gartner," said Ronen Yehoshua, Morphisec CEO. "The security world is at a loss, looking for something really new, not empty promises of 'new generation this' or 'next generation that.' Cyber security needs to abandon the old dogmas of adding more layers that slow down machines, disrupt operations, create data overload, and still don't prevent breaches effectively. We believe the Cool Vendor recognition is a welcome validation of our radically different approach to endpoint threat prevention. We also feel it is a recognition of the need for dramatic new thinking in cyber security in general and of the new crop of security solutions fulfilling this promise. I am convinced Morphisec is at the vanguard of this charge."
The Gartner report, "Cool Vendors in Security for Technology and Service Providers, 2016," points out that "the shortfalls of established security technologies along with the mounting pressure coming from sophisticated attackers is creating opportunities for innovative startups in the areas of security intelligence and detection of advanced targeted attacks."

Morphisec inverts the traditional detection security paradigm: It re-establishes market confidence in real prevention of advanced attacks and lessens the dependency on complex and noisy detection systems. Its Moving Target Defense prevention technology does not rely on threat signatures or suspicious behaviors. Instead, it uses the hackers' own tactics – polymorphism and deception – to instantaneously block and identify attacks. With its recently announced enterprise-grade product, Morphisec protects companies from zero-day, one-day and other exploit-based threats. It mitigates the risk and impact of unpatched vulnerabilities without having to rush into rapid deployment of patches. It does so in a deterministic manner, via a lightweight 1MB agent requiring no administration, no complex configuration, no updates and causing no impact on the endpoint.

Emerging from Israel's national cybersecurity center, Morphisec makes endpoint threat prevention viable again. Morphisec terminates the kill chain at its very onset, stopping and neutralizing zero-days and advanced attacks at the moment of infiltration before damage can occur. Morphisec's Moving Target Defense technology morphs the runtime environment, randomly and without any trace, concealing unpatched endpoint vulnerabilities and trapping all attempts at access. Attackers never find the targets they seek. Ever.
