SC MEDIA, The Cybersecurity Source today announced that WHISTIC has been recognized as an Excellence Award finalist in the Best Emerging Technology category for its Security Profile Platform for the 2019 SC Awards. Finalists are recognized for outstanding leadership and providing superior security products to the cybersecurity industry. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards ceremony on March 5, 2019 in San Francisco.
Whistic is a leading vendor security platform enabling companies from any industry to conduct and respond to security reviews. As a cloud-based platform that uses a unique approach to address the challenges of third-party vendor risk management, Whistic allows companies to proactively build a Security Profile and use it to eliminate the need to respond to individual spreadsheet security questionnaires from prospects and customers.
“Every new year brings with it an unpredictable mix of adversity and opportunity for information security professionals,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “In 2018, we watched as ransomware took down entire city governments, popular online platforms were accused of mishandling user data, and technology giants announced an unprecedented industry-wide effort to solve the Spectre and Meltdown CPU vulnerabilities. Through it all, this year’s SC Awards finalists found ways to break boundaries, overcome challenges and contribute fresh new ideas to the world of cybersecurity.”
Now in its 22nd year, SC Awards is recognized as the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity professionals, products and services. Winners in the Excellence category are determined by an expert panel of judges with extensive knowledge and experience in the cybersecurity industry. The Excellence Award honors the professionals, products and services that have proven to be the best in the industry for protecting today’s corporate world from an array of risks and threats.
Whistic’s CEO Nick Sorensen said, “We are excited to be mentioned alongside other innovative companies that are also working to better protect the world from cybersecurity risks. Whistic’s mission is to raise the bar on cybersecurity by enabling companies to hold each other accountable for protecting the data they share. By being recognized as one of the top Emerging Technologies in the Cybersecurity space, we are pleased to see that the industry is paying more attention to the important role that third party vendors play in the overall security posture of a company.”
“Combatting today’s top security threats requires a combination of innovation, collaboration and education,” added Illena Armstrong of SC Media. “Whistic is a shining example of a company that’s firmly committed to these key tenets as it helps protects organizations big and small from wave after wave of attack.”
