Mantix4 Receives the 2018 InfoSec Award
Mantix4 threat intelligence solution was named Most Innovative Threat Hunting Platform by Cyber Defense Magazine
DENVER, CO – April 16, 2018 – Today, Mantix4, a cyber intelligence platform, was awarded the 2018 InfoSec Award for Most Innovative Threat Hunting Platform. The Mantix4 solution provides complete visibility into networks, turning the world of cyber intelligence from reactive to proactive by enabling companies to analyze, hunt, disrupt and neutralize potential cyber attacks.
“Cybercrime, Hacktivism, Cyberespionage, Ransomware and malware exploits are all on the rise, Mantix4 has won the Most Innovative Threat Hunting Platform from our magazine. They won after we reviewed nearly 3,000 InfoSec companies, globally, because they are an innovator on a mission to help stop breaches and get one step ahead of the next threat, proactively,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher, Cyber Defense Magazine.
Due to the shortage of IT and cybersecurity personnel, it is more important than ever to work with a solution that can turn virtually anyone into a threat hunter with minimal training. Mantix4 was designed to cut through noise and clutter by proactively identifying and prioritizing abnormal patterns and behaviors threatening a network. The technology allows anyone within an enterprise setting the ability to predictively, proactively and forensically identify and remediate dangerous cyber threats before reputations are tarnished and money is lost.
“Cybercrime damages are predicted to cost the world $6 trillion annually by 2021, according to research conducted by Cybersecurity Ventures,” said John Stubbs, CEO and co-founder, Mantix4. “We’re in the era of the Dark Web and sophisticated cyber attacks that can disguise their behavior or even ‘play dead’ for months. The choice is to either proactively find and neutralize cyber threats that are lurking or wait to receive security alerts after the fact. It’s either hunt or be hunted. At Mantix4 we choose the role of the hunter.”
Mantix4 founders, John Stubbs and Chris Dodunski, have a combined tenure of 50-years in the cybersecurity and defense industries. “Cyber attackers are becoming increasingly sophisticated and well-funded, and we knew it was vital to develop a platform that utilizes white hat hacking to lure, expose and eliminate threat actors before they detonate and cause serious harm,” said Chris Dodunski, CTO and co-founder, Mantix4.
Mantix4 will receive the Most Innovative Threat Hunting Platform InfoSec award during RSA 2018. The Mantix4 team will be in booth 4442 during RSA and invite all members of the press and conference attendees to get a first-hand look at the M4 solution.
Mantix4’s M4 Cyber Threat Hunting Platform was originally developed in 2011 by a team of defense intelligence, cyber security, and military experts. Mantix4 leverages advanced threat intelligence, big data analytics, and behavior anomalies, to give users context-based threat intelligence through a highly-visual platform. The system can even detect and neutralize sophisticated breaches, including advanced viruses that can ‘play dead,’ and lie dormant in a company’s systems for months. The solution is delivered over the cloud in a Tier III Gold Certified Data Center, and also through MSP/MSSPs with security operations centers throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. Within 24 hours, the platform is proactively collecting and displaying actionable information about inbound, outbound and lateral traffic.
