TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Votiro Cybersec Global Limited, a global leader in content disarm and reconstruction (CDR) technology, today announced that they were named the winner of the iCyberCenter International Pitch Competition held at this year’s RSA Conference. The event was hosted by bwtech@UMBC in partnership with the Maryland Department of Commerce in an effort to support international cybersecurity companies establishing a presence in Maryland. During the conference, Votiro’s CEO and Founder, Aviv Grafi, presented a detailed look into the company’s background, technology and overall mission alongside fellow competition finalists. A panel of leading venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and industry veterans judged the contest and named Votiro the winner, with second and third place honors going to Cybermerc (Australia) and Enigmedia (Spain).
Hand-selected by executives from DataTribe, Paladin Capital, Cybersecurity Insiders, Tesla and Venable, Votiro has proven that the ability to sanitize documents and ensure all shared files do not contain malware resonates with the U.S. market’s mission to prevent targeted attacks. Ellen Hemmerly, President of bwtech@UMBC, adds, "Votiro impressed the judging panel with its management, funding support and strong business plan and we were delighted to award them with first place in the competition."
Trusted by over 400 customers worldwide, Votiro File Disarmer provides protection from all malware threats, both known and unknown, with a 100% success rate to date. The entire file sanitization process takes under a second, while retaining all file content and functionality. Votiro File Disarmer is also fully scalable, compatible with numerous channels, and supports over 120 different file types - making it ideal for any size and type of organization. Management couldn’t be easier, thanks to the central user-friendly dashboard and SIEM integration.
“Organizations depend on file sharing to communicate with their users, co-workers, and customers. In today’s world, the improper handling or disregard for CDR technology can result in potentially devastating consequences, both to the organization’s resources and reputation,” said Grafi. “We are honored to be selected on an international stage for our innovation and commitment to improving the U.S. cybersecurity market, specifically as it relates to setting the standard for secure file sharing and zero-day exploit protection.”
Votiro File Disarmer was also recently named a Silver Winner in the 2019 Info Security PG’s Global Excellence Awards for Innovation in Enterprise Security, as well as in the 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards for the Advanced Persistent Threat Protection (APT) and Secure File Transfer categories.
