NEW YORK, Oct. 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Corvil’s multi-award winning Security Analytics continues to garner industry recognition winning the “Best Cybersecurity Provider” category in the 2018 Mutual Fund Services and Technology Awards, which celebrate outstanding performance of vital operational functions that keep mutual funds in business.

As the most targeted industry with the highest volume of security incidents, Financial Services firms face a constantly evolving barrage of cyber attacks.  Corvil Security Analytics supports firms in outmaneuvering today’s advanced cyber attackers, who have industrialized their tactics, techniques and procedures.  The solution leverages AI and machine learning to provide a new type of visibility and depth of insight from the network to identify, investigate, and remediate cyber threats, including those from compromised user accounts, that increase the risk of data theft and reputational damage.

This award emphasizes Corvil’s strong track-record in anticipating market needs and changes and advancing its streaming analytics platform to deliver comprehensive and effective cyber risk mitigation as well as greater operational efficiencies.  Whether illuminating blind spots to find, stop and minimize the damage of a ransomware attack, or prioritizing the most suspicious users in the environment to thwart insider risks, Corvil’s streamlined workflows and intelligence sharing with the broader security and network operations ecosystem is helping to bolster cyber resilience.

Corvil’s innovation also has been proven to addresses the unique security needs of today’s electronic transaction businesses looking to solve escalating concerns over cyber attacks and demonstrate compliance with evolving regulations without impairing the reliability or performance of critical systems.  With Corvil Cara, the world’s first virtual security expert for financial markets, vulnerabilities and possible attacks within trading environments are autonomously identified for investigation.  The solution provides a daily cybersecurity risk assessment report consumable by business executives, and outlines the insights required by CISOs and security teams for detailed forensic investigation and response.

These differentiators are among the factors that have propelled Corvil to become the gold standard platform for the top performing financial services firms, including top banks, asset managers, brokers, and stock exchanges.  Consequently, this strong reputation has given rise to other sectors, with high cyber risk profiles, such as insurance and legal firms, to enlist these proven and trusted capabilities.

“We are proud and delighted to receive this important industry endorsement,” said David Murray, Corvil’s Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer.  “With regulatory bodies such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) warning that cyber attacks are the greatest threat to markets[1], Corvil remains focused on innovation that continues to deliver more effective and efficient cybersecurity operations and protections for the industry.”
