SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cavirin Systems, Inc., provider of comprehensive cybersecurity, risk management, and DevSecOps automation solutions for hybrid cloud, has been selected as a gold winner by the 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in the ‘Best Compliance Solution’ for its’ ‘Continuous Security for Hybrid Clouds.’ Cavirin Systems was also selected as a silver winner in two additional categories including ‘Best Cloud Security’ and ‘Best Cybersecurity Company’ for fifty to one hundred employees. The 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards honor individuals and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security, based on the strength of their nomination and the popular vote by members of the information security community.
These prestigious awards clearly reflect Cavirin’s continued leadership in enabling continuous security and compliance across the hybrid cloud. The most recent example of this leadership is forming the working group for developing a CIS Security Benchmark for Azure Cloud. The benchmark is a significant milestone for public cloud security as a foundational and prescriptive guideline for organizations to establish a healthy security posture in Azure Cloud investments. The CIS Security Benchmark takes a different approach from other products that rely on published APIs and therefore provide only an indirect view into the cloud infrastructure. This quantitative and automatic assessment is a foundation for DevSecOps.
"Congratulations to Cavirin for being recognized as a winner in the Cloud Security, Compliance, and Best Cybersecurity Company categories of the 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards," said Holger Schulze, CEO of Cybersecurity Insiders and founder of the 400,000-member Information Security Community on LinkedIn that organizes the awards program. "With over 400 entries in more than 70 categories, the 2018 awards are highly competitive and all winners truly reflect the very best in today's cybersecurity industry."
“Over the last few quarters we’ve continued to raise our visibility and credibility in bringing DevSecOps to hybrid cloud security,” said David Ginsburg, Vice President of Marketing, Cavirin. “Outstanding customer traction on our new platform, recent award wins, exceptional independent product reviews, and established thought leadership have set the stage for a fantastic 2018 for Cavirin."
Cavirin will next showcase its leading platform for continuous security in hybrid clouds at Container World 2018 from February 26-28, 2018 in Santa Clara, CA. Cavirin will also be hosting a webinar on March 7th featuring Byron Acohido, Pulitzer Prize winner and Executive Editor of lastwatchdog.com highlighting several critical cyber threats looming in 2018.
