“Threats are lurking in corporate networks today despite many layers of security, and bring-your-own-device initiatives (BYOD) only make securing the enterprise more difficult”
Eighty emerging technology companies applied and were carefully vetted in a two-stage process by the SINET Showcase Steering Committee for the opportunity to present innovative and potentially disruptive cybersecurity solutions to an audience of representatives from defense, homeland security, intelligence and civilian federal agencies, as well as commercial, investment and research communities. Damballa will be one of sixteen companies presenting on stage.
“Every year the quality of companies applying to present as a SINET 16 Innovator continues to impress the Showcase steering committee. We are confident that by raising the awareness of Damballa and other finalists’ capabilities, there will be an enhanced opportunity to impact the most pressing technology needs of the Federal Government and private industry – and, ultimately, the protection of our nation’s Critical Infrastructure and Command and Control systems. In this light, I am excited to announce the class of 2012 SINET 16 Innovators,” said Robert Rodriguez, Chairman and Managing Principal of SINET.
“Threats are lurking in corporate networks today despite many layers of security, and bring-your-own-device initiatives (BYOD) only make securing the enterprise more difficult,” said Val Rahmani, CEO of Damballa. “Damballa technology is unique in its network behavioral analysis approach to protecting organizations against targeted, advanced malware threats. It is an honor to have been selected by such a prestigious group of industry experts as a SINET 16 Innovator in cutting-edge technology to identify cyber risks.”
