New York, NY (PRWEB) October 06, 2015
Secure Islands today announced that SINET an organization focused on advancing cyber security innovation through public-private collaboration, chose Secure Islands as a winner of its annual SINET 16 competition. Secure Islands was selected from a pool of more than 130 applicants from around the world, solution providers with cutting-edge technologies to address cyber security threats and vulnerabilities. The selected companies will share their work with buyers, builders, investors and researchers during the SINET Showcase on Nov 3 & 4, 2015 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
“We are thrilled to be named one of the winners of the 2015 SINET 16,” said Aki Eldar, founder and CEO of Secure Islands. “Our solutions enable organizations to “immunize” data upon creation with classification and protection policies that persist for the life of the data - regardless of where it is. With data breaches and data theft at an all-time high, we enable our customers to reap the benefits of mobility and globalization with assurance that their data remains private and secure at all times.”
Secure Islands, along with 15 other companies, will share their work with buyers, builders, investors and researchers during the SINET Showcase on November 3–4, 2015 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. The competition requires that revenues be under $15 million and this year’s applicant pool of early stage and emerging growth companies was the most competitive since SINET began this initiative seven years ago. The entries were vetted in a two-stage process by the SINET Showcase Steering Committee, which was comprised of 100 security experts drawn from the venture, government, industry, academia, investment banking and private sector communities.
Secure Islands has collected a series of industry awards this year, including being named a Clear Choice Vendor by Network World, a winner of the prestigious Red Herring Top 100 Americas award, and Bronze Winner in “Tomorrow’s Technology Today” category of Info Security Product Guide’s 2015 Global Excellence Awards.
“The dynamics and warp speed at which Cyber threats are accelerating mandates greater access to innovative solutions in order to keep pace and or take the geometric advantage over the adversaries,” says Robert Rodriguez, Chairman and Founder, SINET. “To address this need I am excited to announce Secure Islands is part of this year’s class of the SINET 16 Innovators. As a nation we cannot afford to leave any stone unturned when it comes to uncovering innovative solution providers and part of our mission at SINET is to do just this.”
