MinerEye identified as Gartner 2016 Cool Vendor in Security Infrastructure Protection

Each year, Gartner identifies new Cool Vendors in key technology areas and publishes a series of research reports evaluating these innovative vendors and their products and services.

According to Gartner, “Gartner’s Cool Vendors in security infrastructure protection offer approaches that are distinct for their creativity and suitability to specific needs. CISOs and other security decision makers should familiarize themselves with these new approaches to solving fundamental security problems.”

MinerEye, a pioneer in big data discovery and classification for information security and its flagship product VisionGrid™ 1.0 enables scalable, automated analysis and governance of unstructured data across disparate and distributed file shares, desktops and cloud data centers. Leveraging computer vision technology, it enables companies to efficiently discover, analyze and act on data for data privacy, intellectual property security, data access control, and overall compliance. VisionGrid™ uses its patent-pending AI technology to identify similar data between corporate data centers and across cloud infrastructures by learning patterns from given example set of sensitive data. Along with its advanced machine-learning cluster data map, it enables the user to identify and alert on a behavioral outlier to sensitive data in all its permutations across corporate repositories. VisionGrid™ is identifying patterns from data bytes so that even files that went through changes will be mapped and clustered.

“We are honored to have MinerEye recognized by Gartner”, said Yaniv Avidan, CEO of MinerEye. “Today’s modern warfare has changed and shifted the way corporates should protect sensitive data. You can’t protect what you can’t see – MinerEye provides exactly that, the ability to identify the most valuable asset – the corporate confidential information and IP. Our VisionGrid™ platform which is based on two patent-pending technologies that stem from the fusion of computer vision and machine learning continually profiles sensitive data patterns in corporate repositories and can trigger other security systems on outliers. All data is continually organized into a map of clusters that dramatically scales down the big data challenge”
