TEL AVIV, Israel, March 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alcide, a cloud-native security leader and the first to provide a Microservices Firewall that secures microservices deployments with one policy engine for Dev, Sec and Ops, today announced it has been named by Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM) winner of the Breakout Cloud Security 2019 InfoSec Award at RSA.

“Isn’t it time to stop cloud security breaches and get one step ahead of the next threat? Alcide was recognized as a Breakout Cloud Security company by our magazine because they are an innovator in cloud security that might actually help you reach this goal and defeat the next generation of exploiters,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, CEO, Cyber Defense Media Group which is in its 7th year of publishing Cyber Defense Magazine and running these independent and prestigious awards.

“We are honored to be recognized by the 2019 InfoSec awards as a Breakout Cloud Security company,” said Ranny Nachmias, CEO of Alcide. “In an increasingly distributed and complex service-centric world driven by DevOps and Kubernetes technologies, security requires a fundamentally different approach, which is what we have sought to deliver by providing continuous security with one unified policy enforcement engine that addresses the security risks from code to production. We are thrilled Miliesfsky and his cybersecurity expert team of independent judges have chosen to recognize us this year.”

This award win comes on the heels of a recent platform release that empowers DevSecOps teams to continuously secure and protect their multi-cluster Kubernetes and Istio deployments while unifying different clusters into a single security incident stream. The company also enhanced its machine-learning, behavioral-based anomaly detection by complementing its unified security policies with advanced network attack detection and insider threats.

Winners were published on the InfoSec Awards site and announced to the community. A full list of 2019 InfoSec winners can be found at http://cyberdefenseawards.com/infosec-awards-winners-2019/.
