Sunnyvale, Calif. & Albuquerque, N.M. – August 16, 2016 – RiskSense® Inc., the pioneer and market leader in pro-active cyber risk management, today announced that its platform was honored in the 13th Annual International Business Awards (IBA) with a Gold Stevie® Award for Best New Governance, Risk, and Compliance Solution and a Silver Stevie Award for Best New Security Software Solution. The company also received a Silver Stevie Award as the Most Innovative Company in the Americas.
RiskSense will be honored during a formal gala banquet at the Rome Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Rome, Italy on Friday, October 21, 2016.
The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the 2016 IBAs received entries from more than 60 nations and territories and a record total of more than 3,800 nominations. Winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from May through early August 2016.
“Receiving Gold and Silver Stevie awards for company and product innovation is a testament to the strength of our team and technology,” said Torsten George, vice president of global marketing and products at RiskSense. “More than 150 organizations worldwide rely on RiskSense to help them manage cyber risks and identify security vulnerabilities that pose the most imminent threats to their business.”
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 the patchwork of cyber security products, including vulnerability scanners, threat intelligence feeds, and other complex security systems. The RiskSense Platform is the first next-gen 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 takes them from detection to remediation in minutes, not months, by unifying and contextualizing internal security intelligence, external threat data, and business criticality. The RiskSense Platform uses patented technology and integrates with existing security infrastructures to unify and contextualize internal security intelligence (e.g., vulnerabilities, control posture, events) with external threat data (e.g., exploits, malware, threat actors, reputational intelligence) to identify cyber risks and prioritize remediation based on 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.
“This year’s IBA judges were treated to many remarkable and inspiring stories of achievement around the world,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “We look forward to sharing many of these stories with people around the world over the coming months, through the Stevie Awards blog and social media channels, with the hope that they will inspire and instruct the next generation of business achievers.”
