Verodin Named “Vendor to Watch” by Enterprise Management Associates
July 20, 2016

The Verodin Platform matures defenses by continually challenging how security controls and teams perform under fire, removing assumptions and empowering defenders.

RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Verodin, a software company defining Instrumented Security™, today announced it has been named a “Vendor to Watch” by respected independent analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA).

In recognizing Verodin with its prestigious designation, EMA cited the Verodin Platform’s ability to transform how organizations measure security performance and manage risk, noting the platform can “empower customers with previously unseen instrumentation that provides the foundation for verifying and measurably maturing their security controls in a programmatic way against evolving threats and their consequences.”

Constant reports of high-profile exploits and data breaches often overwhelm security teams, risk managers and C-Level executives collectively struggling to determine which threats are most likely to compromise their IT systems and potentially trigger far-reaching consequences. As EMA notes in its Vendor to Watch brief:

“The problem most organizations face is not a lack of (or poorly chosen) technology or personnel that are incompetent, it is their ability to understand the scope of controls and therefore the gaps in controls across their environments as a whole.”

With Verodin, organizations learn precisely how their security technologies, people and processes will respond. Verodin highlights critical gaps in technology and process by safely running malicious attack behaviors on live production networks. Customers can conclusively answer the question, “Could this breach in the news happen to my organization?”

“Looking toward Black Hat USA and the security insights it brings, conference attendees should be mindful of how they are protecting their environments. Visibility into whether defenses are active and effective and where gaps exist is crucial for identifying risk and thus determining investment priorities for both reviewing vendors and making purchases, without impacting production environments,” said EMA Research Director David Monahan. “Recently identified Vendor to Watch, Verodin, can provide excellent visibility into how defenses and response teams are operating. Before diving into the next technology purchase without all of the needed insights, check out Verodin.”

“EMA’s Vendor to Watch designation is further validation of our technology and Instrumented Security vision. We look forward to continuing our dialogue with customers, partners and other attendees at Black Hat USA, where talk of new threats always provokes questions about defense and preparedness,” said Verodin CEO and Co-Founder Christopher Key.

Verodin’s groundbreaking platform instruments an enterprise’s entire security infrastructure, continually testing, evaluating and monitoring its effectiveness. The platform enables organizations to measurably mature their cybersecurity defenses by safely executing advanced cyber-attack patterns and malicious behaviors directly within live production environments and determine how security controls respond – in real-time. By revealing an organization’s true security posture, Verodin’s platform eliminates costly uncertainties, identifies breach weaknesses, greatly enhances security training and helps customers make more cost-effective security buying decisions.

Recognition from EMA is the latest accolade Verodin has received in recent months of momentum and milestones following the company’s launch in April and a strategic round of Series A funding from marquee investors including Blackstone, Rally Ventures, Crosslink Capital and Cisco Investments.

Verodin will exhibit at Black Hat USA 2016, July 30 – August 4 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet company executives at booth #371 and view live demonstrations of how the Verodin Platform empowers C-Level executives and security teams.
