Everyone enjoys receiving accolades and we at Skycure are no different. Everyone here truly believes in our mission to deliver seamless, comprehensive Mobile Threat Defense to companies all over the world. We’re always very humbled to receive any accolades or awards, and it is also a nice reminder that our work is paying off and that our mission to keep mobile devices safe and secure is succeeding. Today we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve recently been awarded a spot on two important industry lists.
The first list is Top 50 Cybersecurity startups to watch out for in 2017. This list evaluated a plethora of cybersecurity startups and identified the fifty who are making the biggest impact on the market and selected Skycure for inclusion. They were most impressed that Skycure offers technology which provides a seamless and holistic solution for organization’s mobile security needs. Understanding how fast mobile threats evolve, they recognized how crucial it was to leverage capabilities like global crowd-sourced threat intelligence and automated protection for detected risks.
The second list we had the privilege of being included on was CRN’s 2017 Mobility 100: 30 Coolest Mobile Security And Device Management Vendors. CRN, a hugely popular technology resource for over 30 years, evaluates and ranks companies in a number of different categories throughout the year in addition to their daily reporting. Being included on a CRN list is particularly notable because of how many companies apply (and are evaluated) for inclusion, and because of CRN’s massive readership reach.
CRN realizes (like many others) that the rise of the mobile workforce creates both challenges and opportunities for businesses and employees. At the top of that list of mobile challenges is security, particularly when it comes to ensuring that sensitive corporate information doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. CRN recognizes that businesses need a thorough mobile security strategy, and aimed to identify 30 vendors who have emerged to provide security offerings that go well beyond those offered by the device makers themselves.
What caught CRN’s eye the most about Skycure was its ability to tackle mobile threats across every key threat vector, which includes malware, malicious Wi-Fi networks, and OS/configuration vulnerabilities. CRN loved that, out of the box, Skycure provided immense mobile threat defense capabilities, and also that it was easy to integrate Skycure with the world’s most popular Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solutions including Citrix XenMobile, IBM MaaS 360, Microsoft EMS, MobileIron, and VMware AirWatch.
These are Skycure’s two most recent accolades, but it’s been an impressive 6 months for us as well. In the past six months, we’ve also had the privilege of accepting some other key accolades. For example, at the 13th Annual Global Excellence Awards, which honors excellence in every facet of the industry, Skycure was named the winner of the 2017 Global Excellence Award in the category for Enterprise Mobile Threat Defense.
Skycure also won Cyber Defense Magazine’s Next Gen Mobile Endpoint Security Solution 2017. They chose to recognize Skycure for continuing to innovate in Mobile Threat Defense and outpace the competition. They saw it as crucial that Skycure provides active threat detection and protection across all mobile attack vectors, and automatically applies risk- and compliance-based access controls for corporate systems.
And last, but certainly not least, we were honored to have won the Frost & Sullivan 2016 Global Mobile Enterprise Security Company of the Year. To receive this award, a company needs to have demonstrated excellence in growth, innovation, and leadership (which infers superior competitive positioning as well).
At the end of the day our primary objective is not to collect awards – we’re here to protect your mobile devices and data. But, it’s always humbling and refreshing to be recognized by notable institutions which remind us that our hard work is paying off. That our mission to keep mobile devices and company data safe and secure within a threat landscape that evolves in scope and danger every day is succeeding with customers and users, and resonating with industry insiders.
