FREMONT, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 2, 2016) - Attivo Networks®, the leader in deception for cyber security threat detection, was selected as a finalist in the Security Trailblazer category in the Tech Trailblazers Awards.
The Tech Trailblazers is a global awards program that recognizes and rewards technological and commercial innovation, as well as entrepreneurial excellence. With a focus on enterprise technology including big data, cloud, and infosecurity, this program fields entries from around the world.
"I am pleased to have Attivo Networks recognized as an industry leader that is blazing the trail in detection based security," said Attivo Network's CEO, Tushar Kothari. "The need for detecting threats already inside of the network is growing rapidly as more and more companies take an assumed breached security posture. Having Attivo Networks recognized as a finalist, validates the increased need for inside-the-network threat detection and the Attivo Networks approach of dynamic deception to swiftly detect threats within enterprise, data center, cloud, and SCADA environments."
Rose Ross, Chief Trailblazer, said, "This year has been phenomenal again for startup talent and unsurprisingly the quality of the finalists reflects that. We have also seen previous winners go from strength to strength and we are looking forward to seeing who will be following in their startup footsteps. Our esteemed judges and the Tech Trailblazing team wish all the finalists the best of luck."
