Thetaray, a global leader in big data anomaly detection, today announced that it has been included in two influential lists published by VivaTech at its 2017 conference, taking place this week in Paris. The company is featured in "Top 5 Cyber Companies to Watch" and "Top 24 AI Startups to Meet at VivaTech," which highlights the world's leading AI companies. ThetaRay CEO Mark Gazit was also chosen to take part in a panel entitled "IoT and Cyber Security: Securing the Internet of Everything."
VivaTech is a hub for the world's innovators, tech-lovers and pioneers of the future. The event welcomes 50,000 attendees from around the world, and includes speakers such as Alphabet executive chairman Eric Schmidt, GE chairman and CEO Jeff Immelt, and CEOs from Alibaba Group, Lenovo Group, LVMH and other leading global organizations.
"I'm honored to be chosen by VivaTech to speak about a topic as critical and dynamic as security for the Internet of Things," said Gazit.
