Tessian Named a Gartner Cool Vendor

  • 12 May 2020

We are thrilled to be recognized as a Cool Vendor in the recently published Gartner Cool Vendors in Cloud Office Security report. To us, being named a Gartner Cool Vendor is an honor. Vendors recognized in the report are interesting, new, and innovative.

In the report Gartner explains, “as cloud office suite adoption becomes nearly universal, security and risk management leaders must explore ways to protect sensitive information from risks and threats.” Gartner adds that “security and risk management leaders should recognize that cloud office security technology is evolving and converging in sometimes unpredictable ways” and that “the gaps in cloud office technology convergence often result in incomplete data protection and multiple perspectives to data visibility.” The report further states, “the vendors included in this Cool Vendors report focus specifically upon securing applications, communication and data that occur within cloud office environments.”

Tessian is the world’s first Human Layer Security platform that protects organizations from human layer security threats on email. 

By turning your email data into your biggest defense, Tessian prevents inbound and outbound email threats caused by human error. Tessian defends against accidental data loss, data exfiltration and insider threats, in addition to defending against advanced inbound threats like business email compromise, spear phishing and other targeted impersonation attacks.

Tessian’s machine learning technology turns your email data into intelligence, transforming your most vulnerable endpoint – your employees – into a trusted security asset by taking human error out of the equation. 

Tessian Human Layer Security Prevents Human Error on Email

Employees control business’ most sensitive systems and data. Whether it is someone in your finance department who oversees billing and banking platforms, or someone in your HR department who controls employee social security numbers and compensation plans — they are the first and last line of defense; the gatekeepers of digital systems and data.

This is what we call the Human Layer. And people’s propensity to make mistakes, break the rules, or be hacked are Human Layer Vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities can cause big problems. In fact, they’re the number one cause of data breaches: 88% of data breaches reported to the UK’s Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) are due to human error.

To prevent today’s Human Layer Security threats on email, your security controls must understand human behavior. Through a combination of machine intelligence, deep content inspection of email and stateful mapping of email relationships, Tessian turns your email data into your biggest defense against email security threats. 

We call it Human Layer Security.

What does this mean for security leaders?

Our stateful machine learning allows Tessian to understand changing human behavior over time with high accuracy. This means employees experience fewer notification rates and false negatives. Tessian can be deployed in minutes, integrates with O365, Exchange and G-Suite environments and it automatically starts preventing threats within 24 hours of deployment. 

Tessian is trusted by world-leading businesses like Arm, Man Group, Evercore and Schroders to protect their people on email. Gartner subscribers can view the Cool Vendors in Cloud Office Security Link.
