VOTIRO NAMED A 2017 COOL VENDOR BY GARTNER
May 11, 2017
Votiro has been selected as a Cool Vendor in the “Cool Vendors in Content Services, 2017” report by Gartner, Inc, the world’s premier information technology research and advisory firm.
According to Gartner, the vendors selected displayed innovation in content creation, collaboration, integration, and also provided a streamlined process for content protection across an organization’s various repositories. Content-based targeted attacks – including the growing threat of ransomware – represent a significant risk, particularly in modern content collaboration scenarios where extended teams of people exchange content from outside to inside the organization. In 2016, ransomware attacks shot up by %6,000 worldwide.
Through content validation and exploit neutralization, Votiro’s patented Advanced Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) technology prevents and protects against content-related threats. Votiro’s technology complements enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS) offerings, that can leave an organization vulnerable to ransomware attacks spreading via file sharing systems (like Box and Dropbox). The company applies an active cleansing process to all incoming files – through sharing services, email messages and web downloads – by neutralizing undisclosed and zero-day exploits, which other technologies cannot protect against.
“We are thrilled to be selected as a 2017 Cool Vendor in Content Services and consider this another confirmation that Votiro is a leader in the email security and content services indus
try,” said Itay Glick, CEO of Votiro. “We are pleased to see that our advanced CDR technology is being acknowledged as part of an emerging category of technologies within the email security space and we are confident in our ability to protect against threats that may originate from ransomware and zero-day exploits.”
