Tessian Recognized by 451 Research as a “451 Firestarter”

  • 01 June 2020

We are proud to say that Tessian has received a 451 Firestarter award from leading technology research and advisory firm 451 Research.  

The 451 Research Firestarter program recognizes exceptional innovation within the information technology industry. Introduced in 2018 and awarded quarterly, the program is exclusively analyst-led, allowing its team of technology and market experts to highlight organizations they believe are significantly contributing to the overall pace and extent of innovation in the technology market. 

In its recent spotlight report, 451 Research said:

“Most existing data discovery and data loss prevention (DLP) tools try to discover ‘personally identifiable information’ (PII) like credit card, driver’s license and social security numbers using RegEx searches, fingerprinting or optical character recognition (OCR). In contrast, Tessian’s focus is on finding bad behavior rather than finding sensitive data or PII, by applying machine learning techniques to historical email messages (headers, body and attachments) in order to distinguish between ‘safe’ and ‘unsafe’ emails.”

Earlier this year, 451 Research wrote a report stating that the “the DLP market is ripe for change” and that modern enterprises are looking for next-generation solutions that can detect and prevent both inbound email attacks and outbound email threats. Being recognized as a 451 Firestarter is a recognition of Tessian’s innovative approach to data loss protection.
