CyCognito Named a Cool Vendor by Gartner

CyCognito was recognized in the 2020 report on Cyber and IT Risk Management

PALO ALTO, CA, October 21, 2020 CyCognito Inc., the leader in attack surface and digital risk protection, today announced it has been named a Cool Vendor in the October 1, 2020 report on Cyber and IT Risk Management by Gartner.

Gartner’s Cool Vendor research is designed to highlight interesting, new and innovative vendors, products and services. The report also provides recommendations for security and risk management leaders to evaluate their current technology stack and identify ideal targets for risk management automation due to increased pressure on organizations to manage operational risk brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Key Findings in the report include:

  • “The COVID-19 pandemic continues to place significant pressure on organizations by putting new demands on their operational risk and resilience management.

  • Fast-tracking digital business transformations demands risk management domains to evolve to better support the speed of risk assessment and the scale of distributed decision-making processes.

  • More established risk management technology vendors are no longer adequate in areas where detect, analyze, respond and report capabilities converge seamlessly. They are no longer focused on total cost of ownership (TCO), nor are keen on covering capability gaps resulting from businesses undergoing digital transformation or simply coping with environmental factors.” (1)
