MENLO PARK, Calif., Oct. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Menlo Security, a pioneer of malware isolation, today announced that JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE: JPM) has inducted Menlo Security into its Hall of Innovation for the Menlo Security Isolation Platform, which helps to eliminate the risk of malware and targeted phishing attacks from the Web and email.
Once a year the JPMorgan Chase Hall of Innovation recognizes select emerging tech companies for their innovation, business value and disruptive nature. The award was presented at JPMorgan's Eighth Annual J.P. Morgan Technology Innovation Symposium, held in Menlo Park, California.
"We were impressed by Menlo Security's innovative approach to protecting the firm from web-based threats. Its Isolation Platform has been integrated into our enterprise with zero impact to users, providing a seamless user experience for our employees," said Rohan Amin, Chief Information Security Officer, JPMorgan Chase & Co. "At JPMorgan Chase, we are committed to spearheading the adoption of impactful cyber security innovation, as exemplified by Menlo Security."
Menlo Security's Isolation Platform eliminates malware from the Web and email via a new architectural approach. Unlike current threat prevention systems that attempt to distinguish good content from bad, Menlo Security isolates and executes all Web and email content in the safety of its Isolation Platform, allowing only safe visual output to reach end-user devices. The patented technology is simple to deploy, requires no endpoint software or plug-ins and delivers a 100% secure and completely native user experience, essentially indistinguishable from direct interaction with Web and email.
"Menlo Security is honored to receive the prestigious Hall of Innovation award for 2016," said Amir Ben-Efraim, CEO and co-founder for Menlo Security. "Collaborating with JPMorgan Chase as a design partner has allowed us to develop a solution based on the real-world requirements of one of the world's most complex and demanding IT environments. We have packaged these learnings into our offerings, to enable easy adoption by smaller companies seeking the security benefits typically available only to major enterprises."
