Halcyon Named a Top 5 Security Company in Fast Company's 2024 Most Innovative Companies List

Halcyon, the leading platform designed from day one to defeat ransomware, today announced that it has been named to the prestigious annual Fast Company Most Innovative Companies list for 2024, taking the number 5 slot in the Security category. Halcyon is recognized for its innovative anti-ransomware platform, enabling organizations to detect, prevent and quickly recover from disruptive ransomware.

The Halcyon Anti-Ransomware Platform is the first and only contextually aware, purpose-built ransomware detection, prevention and recovery solution designed to catch what existing Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP), Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), and Extended Detection and Response (XDR) platforms miss. Halcyon prevents ransomware attacks from being successful and swiftly mitigates attacks in progress to ensure critical business functions remain operational.

The innovative Halcyon multi-layered approach provides multiple detection, prevention and recovery layers designed specifically to defeat ransomware attacks that other endpoint solutions miss while ensuring minimal business disruption. Proprietary Halcyon key material capture capabilities allow for autonomous decryption of impacted devices for swift recovery. Halcyon also provides data exfiltration and extortion prevention while protecting other security tools from being circumvented with built-in bypass and evasion protection.

"Security teams, business leaders and other stakeholders are struggling to ensure operations remain up and running in the face of relentless and costly ransomware attacks," said Jon Miller, CEO and co-founder, Halcyon. "We are honored t be named among this year's Most Innovative Companies. The latest recognition by Fast Company is a testament to our company's mission of making ransomware unprofitable and disrupting the industry."

Fast Company's editors and writers identified the companies driving progress around the world and across industries, evaluating thousands of submissions through a competitive application process. The result is a globe-spanning guide to innovation today, from early-stage startups to some of the most valuable companies in the world.

"Our list of the Most Innovative Companies is both a comprehensive look at the innovation economy and a snapshot of the business trends that defined the year," said Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan. "We saw extraordinary innovation across the board in 2023, but we also saw a handful of clear patterns: the growing footprint and impact of AI, the triumphant return of live events, and great leaps forward in climate tech. We face daunting challenges on many fronts, but the solutions we celebrate in MIC give me plenty of hope about the future."

This year, Halcyon is one of the 606 organizations recognized across 58 sectors and regions. Halcyon continues to be recognized as a trailblazer in the cybersecurity industry; this latest accolade comes on the heels of Halcyon's placement in the On The Rise category for the 2023 Fast Company Next Big Things in Tech list.
