The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run – worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.
Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners will be announced during a gala event at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Friday, November 11. Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S.A and several other countries are expected to attend. The event will be broadcast on Livestream.

She has held security product leadership roles at Oracle, Simeio, Sun Microsystems and Disney and was part of the founding team that created Vaau, an identity and access management startup that was acquired by Sun Microsystems (now Oracle) in 2008.

“I’m honored to be a finalist for these awards,” said Saryu. “I have always worked to carve out space for women in cybersecurity and am gratified to see recognition of these efforts – I hope seeing all the winners and finalists will inspire other young women to enter the field.”
Finalists were determined by the average scores of more than 200 business professionals around the world, working on seven juries.
