RiskSense Scores Big at 2016 American Business Awards
Cyber Risk Management Leader and Its SaaS Platform Earn Three Stevie Awards for Innovations in Securing the Entire Computing Stack against Cyber-Attacks
Sunnyvale, Calif. & Albuquerque, N.M. - May 5, 2016 – RiskSense®, Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced that it has received three Stevie® Awards in the 2016 American Business Awards™ (ABA) competition. The company was named the Silver Award winner in the Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year (up to 100 employees) category, while the RiskSense Platform was named the Silver Award winner for Best Security Software Solution and Bronze Award winner for Best Governance, Risk, and Compliance Software Solution.
“It’s a special honor to receive three Stevie Awards in one year,” said Torsten George, vice president of global marketing and products at RiskSense. “These ‘Oscars’ of business recognition pay tribute to RiskSense and our technology innovations that allow customers to holistically manage cyber risk, and finally secure their entire computing stack against a dynamic cyber threat landscape. The company, our employees, customers, and partners appreciate the recognition from this prestigious awards program.”
The RiskSense Platform transforms cyber risk management into a more pro-active, collaborative, and real-time discipline. The platform embodies the expertise and deep knowledge RiskSense has gained from defending critical networks against the world’s most dangerous cyber adversaries. As part of a team that collaborated with the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Intelligence Community, RiskSense founders developed Computational Analysis of Cyber Terrorism against the U.S. (CACTUS), Support Vectors Intrusion Detection, Behavior Risk Analysis of Vicious Executables (BRAVE), and the Strike Team Program.
The RiskSense Software-as-a-Service platform uses patented technology and leverages existing technology investments to unify and contextualize internal security intelligence (e.g., vulnerabilities, control posture, events), external threat data feeds (e.g., exploits, malware, threat actors, reputational intelligence), and business criticality to identify imminent cyber risks and prioritize remediation actions for physical and virtual assets within an organization’s infrastructure. In turn, organizations are offered a risk-based prioritization of the gaps that need to be mitigated first based on their business impact.
Ultimately, RiskSense empowers enterprises and governments to apply proper cyber hygiene, strengthen their cyber security posture, lower remediation costs, dramatically shorten time-to-remediation, and overall reduce the risk of the impact of cyber-attacks on their organizations.
“The judges were extremely impressed with the quality of entries we received this year. The competition was intense and every organization that has won should be proud,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
More than 250 members of several specialized judging committees determined the Stevie Award winners from more than 3,400 nominations. Details about The American Business Awards and the list of 2016 Stevie winners are available at www.StevieAwards.com/ABA.
