ProtectWise Named SINET 16 Innovator Award Winner for Cloud Network Security Technology

The ProtectWise Grid is Selected as One of the 16 Most Innovative Cybersecurity Technologies

DENVER--()--ProtectWise, provider of the enterprise security platform that delivers pervasive visibility, deep analytics and an advanced user experience on demand, was named a SINET 16 Innovator Award Winner for 2016. The SINET 16, awarded annually by the Security Innovation Network, recognizes the most innovative technologies and compelling emerging companies from among hundreds of nominees around the world. The ProtectWise Grid was recognized for its powerful threat detection capabilities.

As a member of the SINET 16, ProtectWise will present its cloud enterprise security platform at the SINET Showcase at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, November 2-3. The SINET Showcase attracts senior information security personnel and members of the public and private sector buyers, builders, investors and researchers to learn how technical innovations are addressing the most pressing needs in information security.

"Being recognized by the Security Innovation Network as a SINET 16 Innovator is a big honor for us, and highlights an amazing year of growth for ProtectWise. From the recent launch of our channel partner program to a series of successful integrations with established vendors like Splunk and Palo Alto Networks, 2016 has been a huge year of growth for the company,” said Scott Chasin, CEO and co-founder, ProtectWise. "We are thrilled at this recognition from SINET and looking forward to presenting our work in DC in November, and showcasing the strategic advantage we provide security teams to investigate threats though every stage of an attack.”

“I am proud and excited to recognize ProtectWise as one of this year’s SINET 16 Innovators,” said Robert Rodriguez, Chairman and Founder of SINET. “Of our four programs each year, Silicon Valley, New York City, Washington DC and London, the Showcase is my favorite as it has a clear deliverable in our mission to advance innovation in the Cybersecurity domain.”

The competition requires that revenues be under $15 million and this year's applicant pool of early stage and emerging technology companies was the most competitive since SINET began the initiative eight years ago. Entries were evaluated in a two-stage process by the SINET Showcase Steering Committee of 100 cybersecurity professionals, including chief security information officers from leading organizations worldwide, experts in government intelligence and defense agencies, distinguished venture capital firms specializing in security, security entrepreneurs and security experts from academia.
