Hexis Cyber Solutions Named a "Cool Vendor" by Gartner

Vendors Selected for the "Cool Vendor" report are innovative, impactful and intriguing

HANOVER, Md., May 4, 2015 - Hexis Cyber Solutions (Hexis), a wholly-owned subsidiary of The KEYW Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: KEYW), and a provider of advanced cybersecurity solutions for commercial companies and government agencies, today announced that it has been named a "Cool Vendor" in the "Cool Vendors in Security for Technology and Service Providers, 20151" report by Gartner, Inc. The report highlights innovative security technologies from vendors who are pioneering new directions and potential opportunities in the security market.

The report comes on the heels of Hexis' recent introduction of HawkEye G 3.0, featuring ThreatSync, an open framework for threat fusion, analytics and evidence-based detection and validation of unknown and known threats, which includes direct integration with third-party perimeter security technologies and third-party SIEMs. Both Hexis' HawkEye G automated threat removal platform and HawkEye AP big data analytics platform are included in the report. Together, HawkEye G and HawkEye AP, along with data from an ever-expanding ecosystem of third-party security tools, enhance the data and context organizations can use to better detect, verify and remove threats at machine-speed.

"In the battle to defeat today's increasingly sophisticated attacks, threat intelligence and automation are paramount," said Chris Fedde, President, Hexis Cyber Solutions. "We consider our inclusion in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner confirmation of our mission to enable customers to reduce the time between perimeter breach and threat removal. We've continued to innovate, providing greater threat intelligence for faster, higher confidence in automating threat removal, so that even customers with constrained internal resources can protect their organizations before damage is done."
