Cognetyx Named Finalist for the 2017 Cybersecurity Excellence Award

HOUSTON, Feb. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cognetyx, a developer of advanced artificial intelligence security solutions, announced today that it is named a finalist in this year's Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. The annual award honors companies and individuals that demonstrate excellence, innovation, and leadership in information security.

The Cybersecurity Excellence Award recognizes the world's best cybersecurity products, as well as, professionals and organizations worldwide. It focuses on a wide array of cybersecurity problems and partners with the Information Security Community on LinkedIn, which consists of over 350,000 cybersecurity professionals.

"We are honored to be named a finalist," says Amit Kulkarni, CEO of Cognetyx. "Cognetyx firmly believes that protecting the sensitive data of organizations is of critical importance to the future of cybersecurity. 90% of all data and privacy breaches occur because of rogue or unauthorized access. Our Ambient Cognitive system detects this type of behavior. We are privileged to be recognized by the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards for our efforts."

Cognetyx's data security solution ills the gap left by the current technology, which oftentimes cannot identify the misuse of legitimate login credential by cyber criminals, rouge users, or employees whose credentials have been stolen. The Ambient Cognitive Cyber Surveillance system quickly identifies unauthorized or inappropriate users within internal confidential applications in real time. By using the latest artificial intelligence, machine learning and big data technology, the Ambient Cognitive Cyber Surveillance continuously surveys and learns a specific system's patterns. By doing this, Cognetyx can build user profiles for each set of login credentials, transparently and unobtrusively. It then operates along-side existing security products to identify any user activity or behavior outside the "normal" user-set behavior parameters.
