Secure Islands announced today that it has been named as a finalist by Red Herring in its 2015 Hot 100 North America Awards and by Info Security Products Guide in its 11th Annual Global Excellence Awards. Recognized by Red Herring for being one of North America’s most promising private ventures and by Info Security Products Guide for delivering “Tomorrow’s Technology Today,” Secure Islands has quickly racked up industry accolades for its approach to Information Protection, called Data Immunization, which enables organizations to ‘immunize’ data at the point of creation with protection that persists for the life of the data.
These honors add to a string of successes for Secure Islands, including the close of a $10 million dollar investment from one of its customers, Credit Suisse, which it made after an enterprise-wide deployment of Secure Islands’ flagship product, The IQProtector Suite, and the opening of its U.S. headquarters in New York City.
Since 1996, technology industry executives, investors, and strategists have valued the Red Herring 100 lists as an instrument for discovering and advocating the most promising private ventures from around the world. Info Security Products Guide’s prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with groundbreaking products and solutions that raise the bar for others in all areas of security. Both of these respected industry outlets recognized Secure Islands for its vision, product excellence and potential to disrupt the economics of cybercrime by making stolen data useless to cyber thieves.
With 2015 already tracking to displace 2014 as “The Year of the Mega Breach,” Secure Islands offers a much-needed alternative to network or perimeter based approaches that are not suited for today’s corporate IT environments. Secure Islands policy-driven classification and protection ensures that only those intended to see it can view corporate data and by automatically protecting data upon creation, data remains private and intact at all times, regardless of where it is, how it is being accessed, or who is accessing it.
“We are extremely proud to be recognized by Info Security Products Guide and Red Herring, for innovating data-centric security,” said Yuval Eldar, Founder, Secure Islands. “Data Immunization continues to exceed expectations with our customers and prospects, who have been looking for strong information protection that fits within their existing business and IT processes. We can’t stop U.S. businesses from being attacked, but we can make sure that if they are, they maintain full control over the security, integrity and privacy of their data.”
