RiskSense Named One of the Most Innovative Companies in New Mexico for 2017
Albuquerque Business First Recognizes Cyber Risk Management Vendor with Honor for Second Consecutive Year
Sunnyvale, Calif. and Albuquerque, N.M. – July 6, 2017 – RiskSense®, Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced that it was named one of the Most Innovative Companies in New Mexico for a second consecutive year by Albuquerque Business First. The honor recognizes RiskSense for having created and commercialized innovative new technology that enables organizations to detect, prioritize, and mitigate cyber security threats to their business. The publication is a subsidiary of American City Business Journals (ACBJ), the largest publisher of metropolitan business news in the United States with over 3.6 million readers each week.
Winners were selected by a panel of judges for innovation, impact, and disruption. RiskSense and other Innovation New Mexico award recipients have been honored at special event late June 2017 at Albuquerque’s Downtown Civic Plaza.
“Being named a New Mexico Innovator again this year is an honor and demonstrates the momentum we continue to experience in the marketplace,” said Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala, co-founder and chief executive officer of RiskSense. “Our ability to help businesses and government agencies identify cyber security risks, prioritize the most imminent threats, and address them quickly, has separated us from so many products that provide reactive not pro-active protection from attacks.”
RiskSense has pioneered the category of cyber risk management in response to the increasing challenges of extracting actionable intelligence from the massive volume of data generated by a patchwork of cyber security products, including vulnerability scanners, threat intelligence feeds, and other complex security systems. The RiskSense Platform is the first cyber risk management solution that allows enterprises and governments to quickly understand their particular cyber risk exposure across a growing attack surface, quickly orchestrate remediation, and monitor the results. RiskSense reduces detection to remediation to minutes, not months, by unifying and contextualizing internal security intelligence, external threat data, and business criticality. This intelligence-driven approach enables organizations to pro-actively discover and address security gaps that pose the most severe risks to their operations.
