This coveted award recognizes 16 early stage and emerging technology companies who are poised to make an impact on cybersecurity and major industries. CloudKnox was chosen by SINET's distinguished steering committee from a pool of 123 solution providers in the space.
CloudKnox’s inclusion within this elite group of technology companies emphasizes the increasing demand for an enterprise-trusted permissions management platform that provides continuous protection for cloud resources. The clear leader within Gartner’s newly defined Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM) market, CloudKnox is supremely positioned to support the acceleration of multi-cloud adoption, as well as the enterprise shift to automation. With capabilities unmatched by other vendors in the space, the company’s platform meets enterprise needs by delivering across three core pillars: authorization management, anomaly detection and response and compliance.
“CloudKnox is truly honored to receive this award from SINET,” said Balaji Parimi, founder and CEO of CloudKnox Security. “We are proud to have independent experts and thought leaders recognize our platform’s unique potential to detect and mitigate the growing risk of over-permissioned human and machine identities by automating the enforcement of a least privilege posture across hybrid and multi-cloud enterprise environments. Looking ahead, we will continue to innovate leading-edge solutions to protect critical cloud resources.”

This award win follows significant growth on multiple fronts for CloudKnox, including an explosion in enterprise demand for the platform, which has been deployed to the Fortune 1000 including financial, pharmaceutical, utility, and technology industries.
