Once we realized that we had moved on to the next round of the 2021 SINET16 Innovator Award, anticipation and excitement grew high at Valtix. Could we actually be named a SINET16 Innovator? And to our excitement, yes, we were!
This prestigious award win for Valtix follows other recent 2021 accolades including: The Globee Award Startup of the Year, Gartner Cool Vendor, SaaS Awards Shortlist, Top 10 Back Unicorn, Global InfoSec Awards, Fortress Cyber Security Awards.
All of these other awards are fantastic, but this one stands out. SINET, an organization with the mission to accelerate cybersecurity innovation through public-private partnerships, is well respected as an independent voice that regularly picks the next stars in our industry. The SINET16 recognizes emerging companies identified as the most innovative and compelling technologies. The winners were announced during a live webinar by Robert Rodriguez, Chairman & Founder of SINET, alongside previous SINET16 Innovator and CEO of Crowdstrike, George Kurtz.
The competition for this award was fierce. We competed against 190 applications from 18 countries. Evaluation happened across a series of two rounds by the SINET Judging Committee composed of 117 private and government security professionals, including leading risk executives, experts in government intelligence and defense agencies, venture capitalists, and investment bankers.
“I am excited to announce this year’s class of the SINET16 Innovators, who are emerging as leaders in their field, and paving the way for critical security advancements into multiple government agencies and industry sectors,” said Robert D. Rodriguez, Chairman of SINET. “As in past years, the applicant pool of early-stage and emerging technology companies has become more and more competitive. We are proud to play a role in accelerating innovation into a global marketplace by increasing the awareness of value-add technologies and we look forward to watching these companies continue to grow and help protect our national security and economic interests.”
Keep an eye out for our upcoming video presentation promoted within the trusted SINET community of buyers, builders, investors, and researchers.
We are thrilled to be part of this strong group of cybersecurity innovators and appreciate the SINET16 judges for their time and consideration.
