OTTAWA, ON, May 17, 2021 /CNW/ – Field Effect, a global cyber security company specializing in intelligence-grade protection for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), announced today it has won three awards in the 9th Annual Global InfoSec Awards from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM).

The recognition includes:

  • Hot Company in Managed Detection and Response (MDR): Field Effect
  • Best Product in Security Training: Field Effect’s Cyber Range® training and simulation platform
  • Most Innovative in SMB Cybersecurity: Field Effect and its Covalence® threat monitoring, detection, and response platform

Differentiating itself in the market through a holistic approach, Field Effect is on a mission to simplify cyber security and empower SMBs through innovative, easy-to-use technology.

The company’s flagship product, Covalence, raises the MDR bar with a complete end-to-end solution that protects an organization’s entire threat surface against cyber threats and vulnerabilities. Covalence takes it even further by providing its threat data and analysis as clear, actionable alerts to help businesses identify, prioritize, and remediate threats.

Field Effect’s Cyber Range cyber security training platform is equally unique, designed to easily and effectively prepare teams for incident response. It provides an easy-to-use, feature-rich virtual training environment to simulate real-world conditions and train, rehearse, and practice threat scenarios to learn and enhance cyber skills.

Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine. “Field Effect is a cyber security innovator that is making a significant difference by providing the technology and products to help businesses of any size defend their operations against cybercrime.”
