Fidelis Elevate Named Best Product in XDR (eXtended Detection and Response) in the 9th Annual Global InfoSec Awards at #RSAC 2021

Fidelis Cybersecurity, the industry innovator in active eXtended Detection and Response (XDR) solutions trusted by Fortune 100 firms and governments worldwide, was today named “Best Product in XDR – eXtended Detection and Response” by Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine.


Fidelis Elevate is an open, extensible platform that has been purpose-built for Active Defense. It enables SOC analysts to engage adversaries earlier in the attack lifecycle, reshape the attack surface and take control of enterprise security to proactively stop threats before they impact business. Fidelis Elevate unifies deception technologies with detection and response across endpoint (EDR), network (NDR) and cloud. This combination allows an organization to detect and trace an attacker’s movement, understand what systems they have compromised, stop their advance, and restore impacted system to normal operations as quickly as possible. The company recently acquired CloudPassage, a pioneer in cloud security and compliance, which will expand its XDR capabilities within the cloud. 


“It’s truly an honor that Fidelis Elevate has been recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine as the best XDR product,” said Fidelis Cybersecurity CISO, Chris Kubic. “It’s a crowded marketplace, and this recognition speaks volumes to the innovation and talent across the Fidelis team. Our team has been working hard to advance Fidelis’ mission of delivering innovative, unified solutions that help organizations worldwide detect, respond and neutralize advanced threats.” 


“We scoured the globe looking for cybersecurity innovators that could make a huge difference and potentially help turn the tide against the exponential growth in cyber crime.  Fidelis Cybersecurity is absolutely worthy of this coveted award and consideration for deployment in your environment,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
