Reno, NV – October 31, 2016 - BlackRidge Technology is pleased to announce it is the recipient of the 2016 SINET 16 Innovator Award for outstanding advancements in the field of Cybersecurity. BlackRidge will be attending the SINET Conference in Washington, DC on November 3, 2016 to receive the award.
“We are honored to be among this year’s SINET 16 innovators and to be part of a great network of people who focus on developing a cohesive worldwide Cybersecurity community,“ said Bob Graham, CEO BlackRidge Technology. “We are also pleased to become members of SINET and look forward to a long mutually beneficial partnership.”
BlackRidge provides identity-based cyber security defense that stops cyber-attacks and protects against insider threats at the earliest possible time, on the first packet before network sessions are established. This provides the equivalent of secure caller ID for the network that allows only identified and authorized users or devices access to enterprise and cloud systems.
"With the dramatic increase in attacks, we must be relentless in finding and supporting innovative solutions. The SINET 16 Innovator Awards and SINET Showcase offer an unprecedented opportunity to highlight superior advanced solutions, such as BlackRidge Technology, and drive critical investment so that we can stay ahead of our global adversaries,” says Robert Rodriguez, Chairman and Founder of SINET. “This year’s SINET 16 process was our most competitive since SINET began the initiative eight years ago.”
SINET Showcase provides a platform for the business of Cybersecurity to take place as emerging technology companies are able to present their solutions and connect with a select audience of nearly 400 venture capitalists, investment bankers as well as industry and government buyers. The program, which is supported by the Department of Homeland Security, Science & Technology Directorate, also features commentary on the latest investment and Cybersecurity trends from the industry’s foremost experts. The program includes educational workshops, panel sessions, an interactive luncheon hour and a networking reception.
