Alsid recognised as a cybersecurity pioneer by SINET 16 Innovator award
Paris, 11th September, 2020 – Active Directory software provider Alsid has been named in SINET’s 2020 awards as one of the 16 most innovative and compelling cyber security companies in the world.
SINET is an organisation which connects senior level private and government security professionals with solution providers, buyers, researchers and investors, with the aim of furthering the group’s belief that effective Cybersecurity is required to facilitate economic growth, protect critical infrastructure and maintain political stability.
Each year, SINET evaluates the technologies and products of hundreds of emerging cybersecurity companies from around the world and invites the 16 best to present their products on stage in Washington D.C. at its annual showcase. Judges are selected from leadership positions within major security vendors, government and venture capital and investment firms. This means that as well as technical and security excellence, winners must also demonstrate a very strong commercial basis and business model for their solution.
Previous winners of the SINET 16 recognition include PhishMe, Bitglass, Skyhigh Networks, Netskope and CrowdStrike.
Alsid CEO and co-founder, Emmanuel Gras, comments: “We are delighted to be recognised in the SINET 16 Innovators as one of the companies building the future of cybersecurity.
We founded Alsid to defend enterprises against cyber attacks by hardening the system which plays an active role in so many different types of attacks. In 2016, we made some key breakthroughs in defending the Active Directory in a new, smarter way and today we are continually innovating our product and pushing into new markets globally to provide powerfully effective defences against all Active Directory-focused attacks. As we continue to innovate into 2021 and beyond, I want to thank the judges, our amazing Alsid team and six million users worldwide who have placed their trust in Alsid.”
