VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA—Plurilock Security Inc. (TSXV: PLUR) (OTCQB: PLCKF) and related subsidiaries (“Plurilock” or the “Company”), an identity-centric cybersecurity solutions provider for workforces, is pleased to announce that the Company was cited in a 2022 Gartner report, titled “Enhance Your Cyberattack Preparedness With Identity Threat Detection and Response.”
Gartner delivers actionable, objective insights to executives and their teams. Its expert guidance and tools enable faster, smarter decisions and stronger performance on an organization’s mission-critical priorities.
Gartner has identified PlurilockTM as one of the vendors with Identity Threat Detection and Response (ITDR) capabilities in this report.
According to Gartner, “Conventional identity and access management and security preventive controls are insufficient to protect identity systems from attack. To enhance cyberattack preparedness, security and risk management leaders must add ITDR capabilities to their security infrastructure.”1
Plurilock’s DEFEND product is a robust ITDR solution that detects and responds to identity threats in real time using invisible behavioral biometrics. DEFEND finds identity risks and spots access attempts by unauthorized users, all without reliance on shared secrets, mobile or biometric hardware, or other conventional strategies. DEFEND can spot intruders and imposters in seconds, even in sessions that were opened using valid credentials and in which no unusual application use or data egress is occurring.
“We are pleased to have been cited in this Gartner report,” said Plurilock CEO, Ian L. Paterson. “Our goal is to develop and offer the best-in-class cybersecurity solutions and we intend to continue growing our zero trust technology portfolio to offer protection to companies at risk of falling victims to cyber attacks.”
