Skyport Systems Named to the Big 50-2016, Startup50.com's Report on the Top Startups in Tech

Skyport Systems recognized as innovator in protecting mission-critical IT assets

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--()--Skyport Systems, a leading provider of secure infrastructure to protect organizations’ most important workloads, today announced it has earned a position in the Startup50’s Big 50-2016 report, Jeff Vance’s annual roundup of the top tech startups to watch in the coming year.

“I’ve been covering startups since the dotcom bubble first started to inflate. As a journalist, one of the most vexing challenges is separating the contenders from the science and vanity projects,” said Jeff Vance, founder and Editor-in-Chief of Startup50. “With so much noise in the startup world, finding any meaningful signals, the ones that truly correlate with success, is an ongoing, uphill battle.”

Skyport Systems’ SkySecure was built to manage the complexities of today’s realities with a converged system that brings together zero trust compute, virtualization and a full stack of security technologies. SkySecure logs all traffic at a forensically auditable level, enabling users to see where traffic originates, where it is headed, whether it was allowed or not, what policy allowed or blocked it, and when and who put that policy into action. Remote management capability allows users to easily secure branch infrastructure, eliminating the need for firewalls, proxies, MPLS or other security measures.

“StartUp50.com’s recognition of Skyport Systems is a testament to our dedication to educating the enterprise on innovative ways to attain data center security,” said Kelly Seelig, CMO of Skyport Systems. “Our entire business strategy is focused on helping IT operations simply and consistently secure their organizations without completely overhauling legacy systems. This award validates our efforts to help strip away the spin and focus on what really matters: real people and the need for real-world cybersecurity solutions.”

Startup50 is featuring startups that have fought their way past numerous challenges to earn a spot in the Final 50. A preview of Startup50’s Big 50-2016 report is available here: http://startup50.com/big-50-2016-sneak-peek/
