RiskSense Named to Momentum Partners’ Prestigious Watch List
Firm’s Third Quarter Cyber Security Report Recognizes Company’s Innovation and Leadership in Proactive Cyber Risk Management
Sunnyvale, Calif. & Albuquerque, N.M. – October 12, 2016 – RiskSense® Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced that it was named to the Momentum Partners’ Watch List for Q3 2016. Each quarter, after carefully weighing market factors including company growth and innovation, Momentum Partners, a cyber security focused boutique investment bank based in Silicon Valley, selects ten companies each quarter for its Watch List. The report indicates “RiskSense is a leader in pro-active cyber risk management” and that the RiskSense “SaaS platform shortens time to remediation, increases operational efficiency, strengthens security programs, improves cyber hygiene, and ultimately minimizes cyber risks.”
“RiskSense stands out in a crowded marketplace based on the innovations it has brought to market for pro-active cyber risk management,” said Eric McAlpine, founder and managing partner of Momentum Partners. “We look for companies that make a difference to better protect people and organizations from cyber-attacks and cyber crimes.”
RiskSense is changing the way organizations detect and manage cyber risk, reducing time from detection to remediation from months to minutes by unifying and contextualizing internal security intelligence, external threat data, and business criticality. The RiskSense Platform is the first cyber risk management solution with an intelligence-driven approach that enables organizations to pro-actively discover and address security gaps that pose the most severe risks to their operations. RiskSense extracts 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. This allows enterprises and governments to quickly understand their particular cyber risk exposure across a growing attack surface, quickly orchestrate remediation, and monitor the results. Rather than adding even more security tools, organizations have with RiskSense a new, significantly more efficient and effective approach to enterprise security.
“Making the Momentum Partners Watch List is a unique honor,” said Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala, co-founder and chief executive officer of RiskSense. “We have made great strides this year across all areas of our business including product innovation, customer acquisition, corporate expansion, funding, and industry recognition. The fact that Momentum Partners has recognized our emergence as a leader for pro-active cyber risk management is rewarding. We look forward to continuing along this positive trajectory.”
