BE'ER SHEVA , Israel, Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Morphisec, pioneer of Moving Target Defense (MTD) technology and leading provider of endpoint threat prevention solutions, today announces it has been recognized by PricewaterhouseCoopers as the People's Choice Award winner at PwC Cyber Security Day 2016 in Luxembourg.
"Winning the PwC People's Choice Award validates that we have the right solution at the right time for the cybersecurity problems enterprises are facing right now," said Omri Dotan, Morphisec Chief Business Officer. "What sets Morphisec apart from other security vendors is that we augment signature based prevention with advanced threat prevention to create a strong and lean cybersecurity stack. Rather than marketing the 'one and done' approach of many next-gen unicorns, we are focused on elevating and streamlining a company's existing set-up. With the rapidly changing attack technologies of today (and the future), our approach helps companies build a powerful, simple, resilient stack that covers all bases, keeps business goals in mind, and shows that security can have a return on investment."
Award candidates were evaluated on value proposition, internationalization strategy, potential impact in the industry, as well as an elevator pitch performance made in front of 200 investors, corporations and industry experts at PwC Cyber Security Day on October 18, 2016.
"Morphisec convinced the audience because their solution is disrupting the endpoint signature-based antivirus protection with a totally new memory structure approach," explained Edouard Nollet, PwC Accelerator Senior Manager.

The ten finalists that participated in the competition were themselves a select subset, chosen to showcase the most promising next-generation solutions in Cyber Security out of more than one hundred start-ups that made the long list.
"We invited the ten most innovative companies in the global Cyber Security ecosystem which provide specific and innovative proven solutions to increasing and evolving cyber threats," commented Laurent Probst, partner at PwC Luxembourg and Network Global Leader of PwC Accelerator.
PwC Cyber Security Day is part of PricewaterhouseCoopers's innovative Global Accelerator program, a framework designed and tested to find high-potential companies and help them go global faster and smarter. With the honor, Morphisec received a customized two-day business acceleration workshop with PwC's Accelerator program, valued at EUR 10,000.
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, advanced attacks, evasive file-based and file-less malware, ransomware, APTs and web-borne exploits before they can do any damage. Morphisec's Moving Target Defense technology morphs the runtime environment randomly and without any trace, hiding targets and trapping all attempts at accessing them. Attackers simply cannot find the targets they seek. For more information, visit www.morphisec.com, schedule a demo or contact Morphisec at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617-209-2552.
