Top Cyber Security Companies to Introduce New Technologies at SINET Showcase in Washington, DC, Dec. 3 – 4, 2014
The Security Innovation Network™ (SINET), an organization focused on advancing Cyber Security innovation through public-private collaboration, announced today the winners of its annual SINET 16 competition. The companies, which were selected from a pool of 180 applicants from around the world, represent a range of Cyber Security solution providers who are identifying cutting-edge technologies to address Cyber Security threats and vulnerabilities. The selected companies will share their work with buyers, builders, investors and researchers during the SINET Showcase on Dec. 3 – 4, 2014 at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.
The competition requires that revenues be under $15 million and this year’s applicant pool of early stage and emerging technology companies was the most competitive since SINET began the initiative six years ago. The entries were vetted in a two-stage process by the SINET Showcase Steering Committee, which was comprised of 60 security experts drawn from government, academia and the private sector.
“I am proud and excited to once again partner with the DHS S&T Directorate as we recognize this year’s SINET 16 Innovators,” says Robert Rodriguez, Chairman and Founder of SINET. “Only 16 companies were selected out of 180 applications by our esteemed committee so they might present their innovative solutions on stage in front of 400 investors builders, buyers and researchers. Of our four programs each year, Silicon Valley, New York City, Washington DC and London, the Showcase is my favorite as it has a clear deliverable in our mission to advance innovation in the Cybersecurity domain.”
“The continued robust investment and M&A activity are strong bellwethers that we are not only experiencing an exciting period in our lives but are a true testament to the dynamics of the Cybersecurity market, which highlights the continued need for innovative and hopeful solutions.”
