December 12, 2018

Detecting and blocking content-borne cyber attacks, BitDam’s unique prevention technology  adds an essential layer of protection covering City of Las Vegas mailboxes. 

Las Vegas, NV, and Tel-Aviv, Israel, December 12, 2018 – The City of Las Vegas has selected BitDam’s Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) solution to support its ongoing endeavors in protecting its organization from cyber attacks. With 95% of content-borne cyber attacks being delivered via sharing and collaboration, the City of Las Vegas adopted BitDam’s technology, which demonstrates unparalleled detection rates of email-borne attacks, to ensure the organization is secure. “The Advanced Threat Detection solution enables us to significantly reduce our exposure to content-borne cyber attacks,” said Michael Lee Sherwood, Director, Information Technologies, City of Las Vegas, “With attackers becoming more sophisticated, new approaches need to be undertaken to ensure cyber security. We deployed Advanced Threat Detection on top of other secure email gateway products that we have in place as it allows us to detect a wide range of threats”.

“We are thrilled to work with the City of Las Vegas, which proves again that it takes proactive steps to ensure protection from cyber attacks. Current secure email gateway solutions detect malicious emails to some extent but are relatively easy to bypass. Based on a completely new approach, our solution blocks unknown and advanced attacks that would otherwise go undetected” said Liron Barak, BitDam’s Co-Founder and CEO. “I am confident that the City of Las Vegas will be much more secure leveraging BitDam’s unique technology”.

BitDam’s cloud-based solution proactively detects and blocks known and unknown content-borne attacks, pre-delivery. Its unique attack-agnostic technology increases detection rates by up to ten times compared with other solutions in the market.

The solution integrates with leading email platforms including Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Exchange, Google G Suite and all web-based emails.
