Cynet (http://www.cynet.com), provider of the world’s first autonomous XDR platform, announced Chris Roberts, a recognized cybersecurity researcher and newly appointed Chief Security Strategist for Cynet will launch a new CISO community specifically designed to help cybersecurity leaders.
The interactive community will support CISOs who want to share experiences, collaborate on best practices, coordinate initiatives, discover new resources or simply just need a place to talk. Roberts, an experienced cyber researcher and ethical hacker will leverage his 20-plus years of security experience to assist and guide organizations of all sizes looking to simplify their cybersecurity methodologies and processes through consolidation and automation.
The slate of events planned for 2021 include the launch of ‘Virtual CISO Office Hours’ in which Chris will provide free consulting and advice to organizations with small security teams and limited resources to help them build structured plans to strengthen their security posture.
Roberts is also set to launch “The CISO challenge,” a competition that will allow cybersecurity executives from around the world to test their skills and allow their teams to share in a prize fund. The calendar of events is punctuated by a series of webinars led by Roberts with specially invited guests spanning topical areas that are specifically focused on the way resource-constrained organizations manage their cybersecurity challenges.
“Most organizations outside of the Fortune 2000 are facing the same increasing risks as the largest enterprises, but don’t have the people, skills and resources to deal with them. I’m going to help these companies by providing practical guidance on how to evaluate and mitigate cyber risks,” says Roberts.
“At Cynet, we live, breath and deal with resource-constrained security teams daily. Unlike most cybersecurity companies that focus on the largest enterprises, we provide both the technology and service purposely built for the hundreds of thousands of organizations that fall between the cracks. These companies are large enough to get targeted by adversaries but not large enough to have sufficient resources to combat them.”
In March, Cynet announced it closed a $40 million Series C funding round led by Greenfield Partners with participation from existing investors, including Norwest Venture Partners, Vintage Investment Partners, BlueRed Partners and Deutsche Telekom.
The investment will be used to meet the vigorous demand for Cynet’s Autonomous XDR Platform from companies of all sizes, including those with small security teams. Following a 600% sales increase in North America during 2020, Cynet is poised to maintain its rapid expansion in the North American and European markets.
Cynet 360 is the world’s first Autonomous Breach Protection platform that natively integrates XDR endpoint, user and network attack prevention and detection capabilities with an incident engine that fully automates investigation and remediation actions, backed by a 24/7 world-class MDR service. End to end, fully automated breach protection is now within reach of any organization, regardless of security team size and skill level. Visit: https://www.cynet.com.
