Barkly Named a Sample Vendor in Gartner 2018 Hype Cycle for Threat-Facing Technologies & Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Strategies Reports


Barkly rapidly gains momentum with 151% quarter-over-quarter business
growth and is named sample vendor in two Gartner 2018 Hype Cycles

the company advancing endpoint security by combining the strongest,
smartest protection with the simplest management, today announced its
inclusion in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Threat-Facing Technologies, 20181
and the Gartner Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Strategies, 20182.
Gartner has listed Barkly as a Sample Vendor in the Hardware-Based
Security category in both reports.

Gartner's annual Hype Cycle tracks and measures the maturity and
adoption rates of various technologies, and provides insights into how
relevant they are to solving real business problems. In the Gartner Hype
Cycle for Threat-Facing Technologies and the Gartner Hype Cycle for
Infrastructure Strategies, analysts Neil MacDonald and Martin Reynolds
list Hardware-Based Security as an emerging technology, with expected
widespread adoption over the next five to ten years.

"With zero-day and fileless attacks on the rise, we have seen growing
demand for Barkly's unique approach to endpoint protection," said Mike
Duffy, CEO of Barkly. "We believe Barkly's recent 151% business growth,
combined with this recognition from Gartner, is further evidence of
Barkly's continued momentum and growing marketplace demand."

There are three key components to the Barkly Endpoint Protection
Platform that enable Barkly to block zero-day and fileless attacks while
delivering the simplest management experience — Barkly ProtectIQ™,
Barkly EvolveIQ™, and Barkly CommandIQ™.

  • Barkly ProtectIQ™ delivers the strongest protection against the
    infection and exploitation techniques used in today's complex attacks.
    ProtectIQ uses Barkly's patented 3-level architecture and ability to
    combine information from native CPU-level hardware capabilities,
    kernel-level drivers, and user-space analytics for an unmatched
    ability to see and block attacks real-time. ProtectIQ is delivered
    through the Barkly Rapidvisor® agent, which is incredibly fast,
    lightweight, and consumes less than 1% of CPU.
  • Barkly EvolveIQ™ automatically converts malware intelligence into
    powerful protection through its Continuous Machine Learning Engine
    that trains models nightly against the latest malware and goodware.
    The result is maximized protection against new and unknown threats and
    minimized false positives.
  • Barkly CommandIQ™ provides a simple, cloud-based management experience
    with automated incident response from any desktop or mobile device.
    Customers can learn the who, what, when, and where of every incident
    with 1-click response and remediation, root cause identification, and
    attack visualization. No security expertise, policy management, or
    configuration is required.

Barkly is independently certified for antivirus replacement by AV-TEST
