TEL AVIV, Israel, May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
SECDO, an innovative provider of next-generation validation, investigation and response solutions, announced today that it has been named a "Cool Vendor in Security for Technology and Service Providers, 2016" by Gartner, the world's leading information technology research and advisory company.
Gartner's May 2nd report notes 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."
"We are truly honored and excited to be named a Gartner 'Cool Vendor,'" said Shai Morag, CEO and Co-Founder of SECDO. "With Security Operations Centers dealing with tens of thousands of alerts on a daily basis, SECDO has become a vital tool for every organization to effectively investigate alerts and suspicious activity and respond much faster."
SECDO provides advanced alert validation, investigation and remediation capabilities. The platform dramatically improves the efficiency of the Security Operations Center (SOC) by automatically validating alerts from the SIEM using unique thread-level endpoint activity data to identify false positives and prioritize true positives.
Every year, Gartner recognizes a select number of "Cool Vendors" in key technology areas through a series of research reports that highlight industry innovation. For this year's Security for Technology and Service Providers report, Gartner ultimately selected five for its Security Cool Vendor list.
"I am grateful to our global customers for supporting SECDO," Morag added. "With SECDO's automated incident investigation and response platform, our customers are now able to see what is behind every alert so that they do not miss any signs of a potential breach."

SECDO is a groundbreaking provider of Security Investigation and Response solutions. The SECDO platform combines alert validation, interactive visual investigation and automated remediation to transform the way security operations centers work. Security Operations teams are overwhelmed by alerts but at the same time, do not have the data and intelligence to investigate and remediate efficiently. Using patented technology, SECDO automatically validates alerts to weed out false positives. For suspicious activity, SECDO visualizes the attack chain timeline and provides deep visibility into all endpoint activity so analysts immediately understand the "who, what, where, when and how" behind the incident. Then, based on an analysis of exactly how endpoints were compromised, SECDO surgically remediates the incident with minimum user impact. More information is available at sec.do.
