Marlborough, MA (PRWEB) June 29, 2012
Content Raven, a content security company that helps enterprises achieve greater control over their intellectual property as it is being shared externally, today announced that it was voted the “Most Compelling” company at the first-ever B2B IT Forum hosted by Ascent Venture Partners at the Microsoft NERD Center in Cambridge, Mass.
The forum is designed to shine a spotlight on entrepreneurs and new companies in the enterprise IT space and brings together promising startups focused on rapidly emerging enterprise technologies with larger, established companies. The June 26th event focused on cloud security, with presentations from several startups evaluated by a panel of judges that included representatives of Raytheon and Staples. Attendees and judges voted to determine the winner.
Content Raven has developed a unique cloud-based content control and analytics solution that enables companies to reduce the risk of data exposures and eliminate revenue loss associated with unauthorized access to sensitive and valuable corporate information. Users push controlled content from where they want, to whom they want, making Content Raven the first solution to effectively empower organizations with total authority and ownership of their critical intellectual property – no matter what content type it is, where it goes, or what device it is consumed on.
“Presenting at the first-ever B2B IT Forum was an honor, and it’s exciting to see local companies developing impressive solutions for addressing cloud security,” said Joe Moriarty, vice president, global sales for Content Raven. “We’re especially proud to have been named the ‘Most Compelling’ company, and we’re confident the Content Raven approach to content security – intergrating it into the fabric of enterprise architecture, no matter what that architecture is – will be the most efficient way forward as companies experience the increasing need to securely distribute, control, and analyze content.”
Ascent Venture Partners has backed more than 100 early-stage, emerging technology companies since 1985, and the Ascent investment team manages five venture funds with total commitments of more than $450 million. The launch of the B2B IT Forum extends that vision by providing local innovators with a lively and well-informed discussion about the new frontier of enterprise technology, a technology area with current spending levels trending toward $3 trillion annually.
“As a venture capital firm focused on emerging technology, organizing the B2B IT Forum enabled us to reach out to local companies that are making significant inroads in the enterprise IT space,” said Luke Burns, Partner with Ascent. “Content Raven’s cloud-based content control solution is a terrific example of a Massachusetts firm that will change the industry landscape for the better.”
