A True Security Company
A Security Vendor With a True Security DNA You Can Trust
Founded and lead by one of the godfathers of cyber security, Shlomo Kramer (co-founder of Checkpoint Software and Imperva), the Cato Networks team has a true security DNA. The team is built from security industry veterans and ex-military intelligence threat research experts, and the solution is architected from the ground up to deliver enterprise-grade security to every organization. Customers benefit from a trusted partner that understands security inside-out and delivers outcomes that continuously improve the enterprise’s security posture.
A Purpose-built, Automated, AI-Managed Threat Intelligence System
Up-to-date threat intelligence is key to maintaining optimal security posture and stopping malware, phishing, ransomware, and other cyber-attacks. Cato’s teams of security experts has developed a purpose-built AI-based reputation system that autonomously aggregates and scores threat indicators from 250+ threat intelligence feeds. The system continuously measures threat records quality and relevancy and simulates potential impact on real traffic. An updated and aggregated blacklist is automatically published across the Cato SASE Cloud Platform, ensuring up-to-date protection with near zero false positives with no customer involvement.
Rapid Mitigation of Emerging Threats
Enterprises often struggle with the process, resources, and time it takes to protect their networks from emerging vulnerabilities (CVEs). Through the Cato IPS, we provide virtual patching to rapidly block attempts to exploit these vulnerabilities and secure our customer’s networks. Cato’s dedicated team of experts build, test and deploy new IPS rules in record time to quickly adapt to new CVEs without requiring any customer involvement. This “virtual patching” provides enterprises with the assurance that they are protected from high-risk emerging threats while they take the time needed to carefully update and patch impacted systems.
Advanced Security Research and Knowledge Sharing with The Cyber Community
Cato performs ongoing security research across a wide area of domains and shares its findings with the community. We publish periodic threat research reports that present attack and risk trends and provide a detailed analysis of specific research projects. Our experts speak at global security conferences and publish technical and thought leadership blogs covering a wide range of topics, allowing security professionals to tap into our knowledge and expertise. And, Cato provides free educational materials on key topics in our Cyber Security Master Class webinar series.
