Encore recognised in the Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Workload and Network Security, 2023

Cybersecurity vendor acknowledged in the latest Gartner report on Workload and Network Security

Maidenhead, UK. 20 September 2023: Encore, the leading Attack Surface Management [ASM] solution provider, has been recognised by Gartner, the research and advisory firm, in its Hype Cycle for Workload and Network Security, 2023 report. Attack Surface Management is key for improving both workload and network security by providing organisations with insights into entry points an attacker might use. By using ASM, organisations can spot vulnerabilities and fix them before they are exploited. This approach stifles the success rates of prospective attackers. Regularly monitoring attack surface enables organisations to adapt to new risks, ensuring ongoing protection.

In a constantly changing cybersecurity landscape, Encore’s mission remains unchanged. We believe inclusion in Gartner’s Workload and Network Security Hype Cycle 2023 report serves as another testament to Encore’s continued innovation and safety-first approach. The company continues to support organisations worldwide in gaining next-level visibility of real-time threat landscapes, helping them move beyond inadequate cybersecurity compliance and toward true cyber safety.

Encore's CEO, Brendan Kotze, states: “To us, acknowledgement in the three Gartner Hype Cycles* is a testament to the hard work and ingenuity of our team, and once again serves to affirm our position as leaders within cybersecurity".

"Gartner Hype Cycles provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities. Gartner Hype Cycle methodology gives you a view of how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing a sound source of insight to manage its deployment within the context of your specific business goals".** Encore is dedicated to helping businesses tackle the increasingly complex cybersecurity environment, enabling them to harness technology as a driving force in achieving a cyber safe business environment". The report states “Security platform consolidation, zero trust strategies and generative AI are key developments for this Hype Cycle. Security and risk management leaders should consolidate security platforms and adopt suitable emerging technologies to boost efficiency and gain wider security visibility.”

In light of its recognition in the Hype Cycle report, Encore remains steadfast in its dedication to providing world-class cybersecurity solutions imperative to organisations’ safeguarding of digital assets, customers, and reputation.
