Milpitas, CA—May 31, 2023—The Business Intelligence Group announced today that Cyral won the 2023 Fortress Cyber Security Awards in the data protection category. The industry awards program sought to identify and reward the world’s leading companies and products that are working to keep our data and electronic assets safe from a growing threat from hackers.

Cyral is the first security solution to provide all the features of database activity monitoring (DAM), privileged access management (PAM), data loss prevention (DLP), and data security posture management (DSPM) for a company’s most sensitive datasets from a single platform. Other security tools have all-or-nothing access because there is no way of knowing what’s in a company’s database and whether a user should be allowed to access a specific field or record. Cyral addresses this issue with its complete suite of discovery, authentication, authorization, and auditing controls. Multiple people within the same organization can input the same query into their Cyral-protected database, and depending on their role or other defined factors, each would see a different result. It is led by a company’s security leader and initiatives, ensuring full control.

“Winning the Fortress Cybersecurity Award for data protection is momentous proof that the security sector is becoming more database aware,” said Manav Mital, CEO of Cyral. “A company’s most important information is often stored in the cloud and therefore at high risk to attacks. By combining the best features in database security, Cyral ensures that information stays safe.”

“We are so proud to name Cyral as a winner in the 2023 Fortress Cyber Security Awards program,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “As our society continues to evolve and become more reliant on networks and data, companies like Cyral are critical at providing the protection and trust consumers demand.”
