SAN FRANCISCO, June 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Valence Security, a cybersecurity startup delivering the first security platform to bring zero trust principles to the SaaS Mesh, has been named a winner in three categories of the Global InfoSec Awards, presented by Cyber Defense Magazine. Valence is the recipient of the following awards: Hot Company SaaS/Cloud Security; Most Innovative Low-code/no-code Security and Publisher's Choice InfoSec Startup of the Year.
“We founded Valence to help enterprises protect their business-critical SaaS applications from supply chain risks. SaaS-to-SaaS interconnectivity, third-party integrations and no/low-code automation are prime targets for attackers since they are often underlooked, over privileged and ungoverned,” said Yoni Shohet, CEO and co-founder of Valence. “We’ve witnessed significant market adoption of our platform over the past 12 months and we’re honored by the industry's recognition of the importance of securing the SaaS mesh by being among such an impressive list of recipients of the most respected cybersecurity awards in the industry.”
“We scoured the globe looking for cybersecurity innovators that could make a huge difference and potentially help turn the tide against the exponential growth in cyber crime. Valence Security is worthy of these coveted awards and consideration for deployment in your environment,” said Yan Ross, editor of Cyber Defense Magazine.
Judges for the Global InfoSec Awards are CISSP, FMDHS, CEH, certified security professionals. Three major features judges look for in the nominees are: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach. CDM is always asking “What’s Next?” so we are looking for Next Generation InfoSec Solutions.
