CloudPassage Named “Most Innovative Cybersecurity Company”
Company Honored in 2016 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards
San Francisco, CA, May 5, 2016 - CloudPassage today announced it has been recognized as the “Most Innovative Cybersecurity Company” in the 2016 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, which are voted on by the more than 300,000 security professionals who participate in the LinkedIn Information Security Community. From nearly 200 cybersecurity vendors that were nominated, CloudPassage was selected as the winner of the mid-size company category, focused on the most innovative organization that has between 101 and 1,000 employees.
“Enterprises are in the middle of a massive transformation of their IT infrastructure designed to let them move faster and stay competitive,” said Robert Thomas, CEO of CloudPassage. “Agile IT delivery models involve lots of automation, high rates of change, mixed environments and on-demand IT services. But traditional security tools don’t work with these modern IT environments. We’re winning recognition as a leader in the space because CloudPassage Halo is now a proven platform that enables this transformation.”
