Raleigh, N.C. – October 5, 2023SilverSky, a cybersecurity innovator offering powerful managed detection and response (MDR) services, today announced

that it has been awarded “MDR Solution of the Year” in the 7th annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.

SilverSky’s MDR service offers a combination of human expertise and machine learning (ML) to detect and respond to threats in real time. The SilverSky MDR service is powered by the company’s Lightning platform, developed with Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) military technology. The platform uses ML to analyze billions of events per day to identify potential threats. This data is then fed to a team of security experts who work 24/7 to investigate and respond to threats. The team has years of cybersecurity experience, and this human expertise is essential for ensuring that threats are detected and responded to effectively.

The Company’s MDR service covers all aspects of an organization’s cybersecurity posture, including endpoints, networks, email, and cloud infrastructure. It is also scalable with the ability to meet the needs of organizations of all sizes.

Additionally, SilverSky has also established a data science team, enabling its team to simulate realistic cyber threats and conduct extensive training exercises. This simulation empowers cybersecurity experts to hone their skills and develop robust solutions.

“Thank you to CyberSecurity Breakthrough for this amazing recognition. While we appreciate the accolade, our core focus is a commitment to continuous innovation and improvement, and we regularly release new features and updates to our platform while always looking for new ways to improve our MDR service,” said Richard Dobrow, CEO of SilverSky. “As part of our dedication to staying at the forefront of cybersecurity advancements, we will also continue to actively engage in cutting-edge research and development helping organizations mitigate ever-increasing cyber threats.”

The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year’s program attracted thousands of nominations from over 20 different countries throughout the world.

“Silver Sky’s comprehensive coverage helps to ensure that businesses are protected from a wide range of threats, and their MDR service offers several features that set it apart in the industry.
