“We are honored to be recognized as a finalist for this award because of our team’s track record, and because our innovative NLU platform addresses a new layer of security: context and content of communications,” said DJ Sampath, CEO and cofounder of Armorblox. “We are excited about the opportunity in front of us as we help companies detect business email compromise, phishing emails, and accidental data disclosures – which are challenging to catch, even with multiple security solutions in place.”
Armorblox has built the world's first natural language understanding (NLU) platform, providing a new way to intelligently detect, alert and protect against identity-related attacks and data loss. Enterprises use Armorblox to automatically create and adapt policies, continuously measure risk exposure, and reduce alert fatigue.
