GREYCORTEX is happy to announce that we have won the 2019 EY Cybersecurity Trophy in the Cybersecurity Space Innovation category. The winners were announced at an awards ceremony in Bratislava, Slovakia on December 10, 2019.

EY, whose motto is “Building a better working world,” has identified the need for a greater focus on cybersecurity. Based on many years with the world’s leading consulting firms, competition founder Peter Borák, has good reason to emphasize cybersecurity. Due to the increasing frequency of cyber-attacks, extremely sensitive data is leaked, and risks increase every year. “Our primary concern is to help organizations make better decisions on very complex cybersecurity issues. With faster digitization, the risk is accelerating. All organizations should take care of their data protection,” said Borák.

In its Global Information Security Survey, EY recommends that cybersecurity and surveillance be included in the structure of every organization. EY’s main goal is not only to draw attention to the problem and to inform the professional and general public about the cybersecurity issues but also to offer solutions and a wider understanding of the context of the problem. This is why EY recognizes innovative cybersecurity companies and ethical hackers with these awards.

Petr Chaloupka, CEO of GREYCORTEX, noted after receiving the award: “Cybercriminals now run on huge budgets and are constantly improving their procedures. This is the reason why cybersecurity analysts also need to have state-of-the-art technology to defend themselves effectively. Today, it is no longer possible to manually analyze all traffic in each individual private or state organization, to monitor all possible attack vectors, or eliminate all human failures. That’s why advanced technologies, machine learning, and artificial intelligence are on the scene to help with this defense.” Thanks to the integration of these principles into our Mendel product, GREYCORTEX was included in Gartner’s 2019 Market Guide for Network Traffic Analysis.

This year, the EY ESO winners are Rastislav Klč in the EY ESO Chief Information Security Officer category, Tomáš Ležovič as EY ESO DNA Born Ethical Hacker, GREYCORTEX s.r.o. as the EY ESO Cyber Security Space Innovation, and Milan Kyselica as the winner of the EY ESO Security Future Promise, as well as the overall winner.
