“Winning five Stevie International Business Awards is a milestone for RiskSense and powerful endorsement for our unique attack surface validation approach to cyber risk management,” said Dr. Srinivas Mukkamala, co-founder and CEO of RiskSense. “Instead of focusing on a single stack or layer, the RiskSense platform makes it possible for organizations to pro-actively understand, prioritize and remediate risks based on their business criticality -- across the network, applications, databases and even IoT devices.”
