Confluera Named Winner in Three Categories of 2022 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards

Company Recognized as Gold Winner for Cloud eXtended Detection and Response Solution

Palo Alto, California, February 11, 2022 Confluera, the leading provider of next-generation cloud cyber attack detection and response, today announced that the company has been recognized in three categories of the 2022 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. Confluera’s flagship Cloud eXtended Detection and Response (CxDR) platform was named a Gold Winner in the XDR category while the company’s CEO John Morgan was recognized as a Silver Winner in the CEO of the Year category. Confluera was also awarded Silver in the Startup of the Year category.

Each year, the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards recognize and honor individuals, products and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security. Confluera helps protect cloud-native environments from modern cybersecurity threats, bringing together the best security capabilities from an otherwise siloed category of solutions; threat detection, threat analytics, and cloud security. The company’s CxDR solution, first launched last year, reduces the industry average time to detect and mitigate advanced attacks from months down to hours while also reducing the need for personnel with highly specialized cybersecurity expertise.

“The cybersecurity challenges and hurdles associated with multi-cloud deployment continue to proliferate and inhibit business innovation,” said John Morgan, CEO of Confluera. "Protecting modern cloud architectures requires a shift away from legacy solutions and opting instead for those that are built for cloud environments, on cloud-native architectures. We are honored to be recognized by the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, a recognition that underscores our commitment to helping more organizations realize the business benefits of the cloud with lower cyber risk.”

This award win comes on the heels of the company announcing significant updates to its CxDR solution earlier this month. This latest product update extends the cloud-native threat storyboarding capabilities of the Confluera solution to support Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). In addition, the update also deepens the solutions' existing integration and support of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and other security solutions.
