CEO Liron Barak founded BitDam in 2016 bringing together a group of leading security software developers and researchers to develop a disruptivesecurity solution that blocks threats at first sight, and bring it to market. The BitDam solution introduces a pioneering approach for protecting organizations from advanced threats delivered via email, cloud storage and other collaboration channels.
Finalists were determined by the average scores of more than 150 business professionals around the world, working on seven juries.
“Over the course of the past year, BitDam has proven that its technology detects threats which bypass other Advanced Threat Protection solutions. Our solution currently shows detection rates which are 10x higher than leading email security solutions and the number is only increasing. Organizations must keep ahead of hacks and attackers, and I have made it my life’s work to ensure we stay one step ahead of them,” said Liron Barak, CEO of BitDam. “I am honored to be selected as a finalist in the Stevie Awards. My finalist designation is confirmation that BitDam is on the right path to remediating malware and spyware attacks.”
“In its sixteenth year, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business received a record number of nominations. With the second annual Women|Future Conference preceding the announcement of winners on November 15, it will be a day to celebrate the achievements of working women around the world,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and Executive Chairman of the Stevie Awards. “We’re looking forward to recognizing the Stevie Award winners next month.”

Showing x10 detection rates compared to the industry standard, BitDam cyber security blocks advanced content-borne attacks across all enterprise communication channels. Protecting email (Office 365, G-Suite, MS Exchange), cloud storage (OneDrive, G-Drive, Dropbox, Box etc.) and IM (Slack, Teams, Skype and more) BitDam empowers organizations to collaborate safely. Our cloud-based solution proactively detects attacks, pre-delivery, preventing hardware and logical exploits, ransomware, spear-phishing and Zero-Day attacks contained in files and URLs.
While current cybersecurity solutions are based on knowledge of previous attacks, limiting their ability to detect unknown threats, BitDam’s unique attack-agnostic technology enables it to provide remarkably higher protection. BitDam learns the normal code-level executions of business applications such as MS-Word and Acrobat Reader. Based on this whitelist, BitDam determines whether a given file or weblink is malicious or not, regardless of the specific malware it may contain.
Recognized by Frost & Sullivan for its technology leadership, and utilized by hundreds of thousands of end-users, BitDam’s Advanced Threat Protection is deployed by leading organizations in Europe and the US, with a proven record of detecting threats that other security solutions fail to uncover.
“BitDam has proven that its technology detects threats which bypass other Advanced Threat Protection solutions. Our solution currently shows detection rates 10x higher than leading email security solutions and the number is only increasing,” said BitDam CEO Liron Barak.
