Ranked #7 in Canada out of the World’s 500 Most Innovative Cyber Security Companies
OTTAWA, ON, May 26, 2016 – Phirelight is pleased to announce that it has been recognized in the Cybersecurity 500 Q2 2016 edition. Published by cyber security research and market intelligence firm Cybersecurity Ventures, the Cybersecurity 500 ranks the world’s 500 most innovative cyber security companies to watch for the year.
Sitting at global spot #292, Phirelight also ranks 7th in Canada on this quarter’s list.
This past year has brought many new successes for the company – including Phirelight’s recent growth into international markets, the launch of Phirelight’;s US operations, and the enhancement of their management team with established industry veterans.
Additionally, the release of rapidPHIRE 2.1 with added capabilities and features has brought Phirelight to the forefront of cyber intelligence technologies.
“rapidPHIRE has been in development since 2012 after seeing a gap in the cyber security visibility market – the cornerstone to good security awareness. Since then, we have been focused on continuously improving our patent-pending behavioural analytics and delivering a real ROI to enterprises in global markets,” says Phirelight CEO Wayne Teeple, “It is very rewarding to see that our team’s hard work has led to being ranked in the Cybersecurity 500.”
rapidPHIRE – Phirelight’s flagship product – is a cyber intelligence platform that leverages deep packet inspection of network traffic, blends threat intelligence detection and behavioural analytics, and conveys an enterprise-wide operational monitoring “cyber story” of a company.
2016 is looking to be yet another year of growth for the Ottawa-based company.
