SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Dispel announced today it won Plug and Play's 2018 Spring Cybersecurity Summit. The contest, judged by the attending Plug and Play corporate partners, served as the capstone of Plug and Play's cybersecurity program.
The win highlights Dispel's network level Moving Target Defense as an effective and resilient security methodology, in applications including sustaining legacy infrastructure, securing core systems, and facilitating multiparty communications.
"We are deeply gratified by this award, its recognition of our team's hard work, and the support given to us by Plug and Play," said Ethan Schmertzler, CEO of Dispel.
In a presentation at the Spring Summit, Dispel's President and CFO, Ian Schmertzler, demonstrated the capabilities and advantages of Dispel's Enclave technology in production environments. Enclaves enable organizations to connect to the Internet without generating a target profile and stop targeted attacks at the reconnaissance stage. Enclaves power some of the world's largest organizations, enabling faster, secure cloud adoption with lower costs and improved resiliency.
Moving Target Defense technology is a better performing, more adaptable, and cost-effective solution compared to traditional static security-in-depth strategies for many network and endpoint applications. Theorized by the U.S. Defense and Intelligence communities as early as the 1990s, and later experimented on within academic communities, Dispel released the first commercially available implementation of MTD in 2014.
Dispel is a U.S. cyber defense firm that specializes in building traceless, encrypted communications systems to insulate teams, equipment, and datasets from targeted cyber attacks, and observation. Recognized as a Gartner 2017 Cool Vendor in Unified Communications, Dispel has grown to become the leading commercial provider of automated network-level Moving Target Defenses.
