SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Balbix Inc., provider of the security industry’s first system built for avoiding breaches, has received a 2018 Stratus Award from The Business Intelligence Group for being a top Artificial Intelligence (AI) company. The Stratus Awards recognize those companies and individuals innovating in the cloud and providing offerings that are truly differentiated in the market.

Balbix was recognized for its BreachControl™ solution, which deploys sensors across an enterprise’s network to automatically discover and inventory all devices, apps and users across 200+ attack vectors. The Balbix “Brain” runs in the cloud and leverages specialized AI to calculate cyber-risk for every IT asset on the network.

“With the cloud and BYOD permeating nearly every business, the need for proactively identifying breaches across an expanding attack surface is at an all-time high,” said Mark Weiner, CMO of Balbix. “This recognition by The Business Intelligence Group shows our BreachControl solution is making a difference by proactively identifying potential breaches across all IT asset classes, including those in the cloud.”

Unlike traditional vulnerability management (VM), security incident and event management (SIEM), or global risk and compliance (GRC) tools; BreachControl leverages multiple and specialized methods of artificial intelligence and deep learning to:

1. Predict breach risks (vs. remediating existing breaches) 2. Prioritize which actions to mitigate/remediate based on AI-analyzed business risk 3. Prescribe specific recommendations to quickly address each prioritized action 4. Automatically and continuously operate with minimal human intervention 5. Offer comprehensive monitoring across 200+ attack vectors for traditional, cloud, mobile and IoT assets

“Balbix is innovating how enterprises effectively secure their cloud-based networks through advanced artificial intelligence capabilities,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer of The Business Intelligence Group. “The cloud is part of our daily lives and we are pleased to shed a little light on these innovative services, organizations and executives.”
