    Cybersecurity 500 list includes Link11 as one of the global drivers of innovation

    The Link11 Cloud Security Platform makes Link11 one of only four German companies to make it on to the renowned Cybersecurity 500 List once again, and it’s also the “climber” of the year.

    Link11 is one of the most innovative IT security providers in the world, according to the latest Cybersecurity 500 list. The German company has been awarded once again for its trendsetting solutions in the fight against one of the biggest threats that companies face nowadays: cyber attacks. Analysts rated the global Link11 Cloud Security Platform for securing companies’ digital transactions and business areas as outstanding. This platform is a leader when it comes to blocking cyber attacks, because it consistently relies on artificial intelligence to quickly identify cyber threats. The Link11 Cloud Security Platform includes multiple global core services such as DDoS protection, DNS protection, Web Application Firewall and Content Delivery Network (CDN), which help companies to protect their IT infrastructures against a wide variety of threats caused by cyber criminals.

    “We are proud that Link11 has once again been listed as one of the trendsetting companies and technology leaders in the area of cyber security. This confirms that the Link11 team is leading a successful fight against cyber attacks, which is good news, because for our customers offline is not an option!” said Marc Wilczek, Managing Director of Link11.

    The Link11 DDoS report, which is published regularly by the Link11 Security Operation Center (LSOC), demonstrates that the company is also a pioneer when it comes to reporting on the latest cyber threats.

    Link11 made the biggest leap in this year’s rankings

    The company improved its position by a further 90 points on the previous year, which means it now holds 303rd place. According to the publishers of the list, this is one of the biggest improvements in this year’s update. The Frankfurt-based company also holds second place under the German security providers that have made it onto the list.

    A jury consisting of CISOs, security experts and journalists regularly analyzes thousands of companies to produce the overview of 500 of the “world’s hottest and most innovative cybersecurity companies”. The list is published by Cybersecurity Ventures, a US-American market research institute for IT security, on the Cybersecurity 500 website.
