Stephen Babcock, the Lead Reporter for Technical.ly Baltimore, recently interviewed me for a feature story on “Why Light Point Security is all about ‘isolation’” where we discussed Light Point Security’s technology, why isolation is better than detection and our latest partnerships. In case any of you missed it, below is an excerpt from the story.
Light Point Security is looking to pick up some new customers.
The cybersecurity firm, which is based out of bwtech@UMBC, recently inked a pair of new deals that are designed to grow the customer base, said CEO Zuly Gonzalez.
The five-person company makes a product called Light Point Web, which protects users’ computers from malware by providing a separate server for browsing. That separate server ensures that malware never reaches the users’ computer.
Gonzalez said it’s a different approach from other cybersecurity products, which rely on algorithms to detect potential threats.
“There’s so much new bad stuff being created everyday that these algorithms can’t keep up,” Gonzalez said. “We take a different approach. Our security is based on isolation.”
