BOSTON — February 8, 2018 — Threat Stack, provider of the industry’s most comprehensive intrusion detection platform for cloud, hybrid-cloud, and on-premises environments, today announced that it has been recognized as a winner by the 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in three categories – Intrusion Detection & Prevention (Gold), Insider Threat Detection (Gold) and Best Cybersecurity Startup (Bronze).

The 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards honor individuals and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation, and leadership in information security. Winners are determined by the strength of each nomination and the popular vote by members of the information security community.

“We are honored to be recognized as winners of this year’s Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in three separate categories,” said Brian M. Ahern, Threat Stack Chairman and CEO. “Threat Stack is tackling one of the most important problems facing cloud-based companies today — security visibility and integrity across the modern infrastructure. Our clients rely on us to help them reduce their overall attack surface, while improving their operational efficiency in the cloud. We are proud to receive this validation of our commitment to innovation, excellence, and outstanding customer experience.”

The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards are the latest in a long line of recent achievements for Threat Stack, which grew its business across the board in 2017, with 235 percent year-over-year revenue growth and a 125 percent increase in workloads monitored. The company’s unique, integrated platform-approach to threat detection leverages host intrusion supplemented by additional security indicators, which identify behavioral anomalies across the infrastructure via real-time alerts as well as a contextual understanding of internal and external sources of risk.

Threat Stack gives security, operations and development professionals one platform to leverage and understand whether all compliance standards, best practices and centralized workflows are being followed across the organization. Through Threat Stack’s real-time monitoring and alerting, organizations know that their infrastructure is constantly monitored and defended, and thus can move at the speed of DevOps without compromising security.

“Congratulations to Threat Stack for being recognized as the gold winner of the Intrusion Detection & Prevention and the Insider Threat Solution product categories, and the bronze winner for Best Cybersecurity Startup, in the 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards,” said Holger Schulze, CEO of Cybersecurity Insiders and founder of the 400,000-member Information Security Community on LinkedIn that organizes the awards program. “With over 400 entries in more than 70 categories, the 2018 awards are highly competitive and all winners truly reflect the very best in today’s cybersecurity industry.”
