1 October 2015 – London, UK – Balabit, a leading provider of contextual security technologies, today introduced the company’s new corporate brand and logo which reflects its evolution and vision for the future. Balabit’s new tagline of “Contextual Security Intelligence” demonstrates the importance of managing security issues in the context of user activity.
The new corporate logo, symbolizing an opened eye, emphasizes the need to continuously monitor users’ behaviour within the entire IT network. Knowing “who did what” and what is happening in the IT infrastructure is crucial in today’s environments. Balabit aims to help organizations to find the right balance between IT security and business flexibility, enabling them to complement their existing, traditional control tools with real-time monitoring capabilities.
Since it was established in 2000, Balabit, one of the fastest growing IT security companies in Europe, has been a recognised as a technology leader, by analyst firms, in Log Management, Privileged User Monitoring and User Behaviour Analytics technologies. The company has also been selected to the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 CE list four times over the past five years. In 2014, Balabit received USD $8m from London based C5 Capital, Europe’s first dedicated investor in the security and data sector to further boost its global expansion and accelerate its product development. Today, the company sells its products and services globally, with a particular focus on the United States and Europe.
While the tagline and the corporate logo have changed, it re-inforces Balabit’s focus on continuous innovation to its comprehensive, technology platform solution that solves customers’ pain points and supports security requirements across the IT network: from IT operations to security governance.
Zoltán Györkő, Balabit’s CEO commented, “The new perimeter is your own users – it’s high time to focus on them, and the context of what they do. The latest data beaches clearly highlight the need for a comprehensive IT security platform that protects organisations, in real-time, from threats posed by the misuse of high risk and privileged accounts.
He continues, “Balabit’s rebranding represents its ongoing transition to a strategic IT security partner – well beyond its standalone IT security solutions. The new Balabit logo evokes the evolution of the security industry and the latest threats and shows the company’s commitment to providing continuous and future-proof security solutions that enable companies to establish a sustainable, business-friendly IT security.”
