Gartner recognizes Votiro for its Content Disarm And Reconstruction technology that protects businesses from content-related threats
Votiro protects organizations against undisclosed, zero-day exploits and other ongoing cyber threats. Two months ago, the company secured an investment of $7.62M, bringing the total funding to $11.62M.
Itay Glick, CEO of Votiro considers this acknowledgment as a confirmation to its leadership position in the email security and content services industry “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.”
Ransomware attacks are growing exponentially
In 2016, ransomware attacks shot up by 6,000% worldwide, as per an IBM study. Gartner mentioned that 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 both inside and outside the organization.
Votiro’s patented technologies combat ransomware threats
Votiro helps organizations overcome their vulnerability to ransomware attacks caused by enterprise file synchronization and sharing (EFSS) offerings. Through content validation and exploit neutralization, Votiro’s patented Advanced Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR) technology prevents and protects against content-related threats.
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. This, it says, is a unique proposition which other technologies lack. Votiro is headquartered in Tel Aviv, with sales offices in the U S.
