Ericom Software Opens New Tel Aviv R&D Center to Support Business Growth
Third Israel Location for Technical Organization Delivering SASE and Zero Trust Cybersecurity Products
Tel Aviv, Israel (April 27, 2022) - Ericom Software, a leading provider of Zero Trust cloud cybersecurity solutions and developer of the ZTEdge™ SASE Platform, today announced that it has expanded its Israel Development Center with a new R&D Center located in the Azrieli Sarona building, in the heart of the Tel Aviv technology hub, in addition to its Jerusalem and Modi’in locations. The company is continuing to increase the size and strength of its technology team, with a number of recent hires added to support the business’s momentum and strategic product development.
Ericom Software is the leading and most innovative provider of Remote Browser Isolation (RBI), both as a stand-alone solution for protecting endpoints and networks from phishing and web-based threats, and as a foundational capability of its ZTEdge Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platforms. RBI is an essential enterprise cyber defense capability which Gartner views as a critical part of SASE solutions due to its unique ability to strengthen SWG, CASB, and ZTNA Security Services Edge (SSE) security controls.
Ericom’s recent introduction of a unique, patent-pending RBI solution that isolates online meetings like Zoom, Microsoft Teams and Google Meet is an example of the innovative work being done by the expanding Ericom R&D team. ZTEdge Virtual Meeting Isolation (VMI) secures confidential discussions featuring highly sensitive material, allowing them to be conducted online without concern about data leakage, illicit recording or malware infiltration. Organizations in defense, financial and government sectors, which previously barred online meetings due to security concerns, have achieved productivity gains by enabling their secure use with the Ericom VMI solution. ZTEdge Web Security also leverages RBI to protect against threats that elude traditional web security gateways, such as malware embedded in or sent via end-to-end encrypted solutions like WhatsApp Web and other IMs, as well as in sophisticated steganographic attacks.
In addition to value-driven growth delivered by ZTEdge Web Isolation and the entire ZTEdge platform, Ericom is experiencing strong results in a number of greenfield market segments. Ericom’s ZTEdge solution makes SASE accessible for midsize organizations, with built-in IAM, a simple management interface, and a price point that is half that of platforms designed for large enterprises. Ericom has also partnered with managed security service providers (MSSPs) worldwide to deliver the ZTEdge SASE platform to midsize enterprises as a service. In the media and entertainment market, creative film and production studios, including VFX, animation and trailer producers, are implementing ZTEdge Web Isolation as the most highly performant browser isolation solution that addresses digital security requirements of the Motion Picture Association (MPA) Content Security Best Practices Common Guidelines.
“We are delighted to announce the opening of Ericom Software’s Tel Aviv development center, which together with our Jerusalem center houses our expanding R&D team. The company’s rapid growth has been driven by executional excellence across our entire organization, from the customer support teams that attend to customers’ concerns to the product strategy and R&D teams which deliver novel solutions to address market pain points, and the business development, marketing and sales teams that drive our MSSP and midsize enterprise strategies,” said David Canellos, CEO of Ericom Software. “In a highly competitive market for development talent, Ericom has grown its R&D team by over 30% since 2021, thanks to its reputation as a leading provider of cyber security solutions, as well as an exciting and dynamic place to work.”
