Leading the Competition: Security Innovation Wins Two Awards in February

Cybersecurity Company Recognized for Excellence, Innovation and Leadership by the Information Security Community and the Business Intelligence Group

February 13, 2018 - Security Innovation, a pioneer in software security assessment and training, today announced that it won two notable security industry awards in the month of February for its leadership in delivering world-class security solutions to help companies develop secure software.  The award victories come just days after Security Innovation announced record revenue and profitability in 2017.

Through skillful security assessment services, Security Innovation helps organizations break the perpetually frustrating “Find & Fix” hamster wheel by helping them understand where applications are exploitable, finding and fixing vulnerabilities that elude automation, and hardening their software from attack.  Expertise gained during these assessments puts the company in a unique position to deliver authentic security training, including the company’s innovative CMD+CTRL cyber range, which is easily accessible and digestible by learners at every level – from experts to beginners.

“Software engineering is a pedagogical discipline where developers learn by practice.  Core skills can be attained, but they are soon forgotten if they aren’t exercised,” said Dr. Larry Ponemon, Founder of The Ponemon Institute. “Simulation is the perfect complement to traditional training because it immerses the learner in a realistic environment and prepares them for the cybersecurity battle they will face. CMD+CTRL is to software developers what flight simulators are to pilots in training.”

Awards won by Security Innovation in February include:

The 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Award from the 400,000-member Information Security Community as the Best Cybersecurity Education Provider with between 50 and 100 employees.  This annual award honors individuals and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security. Winners across a variety of categories were selected from over 400 nominations based on the strength of their nomination and the popular vote by members of the Information Security Community. 

The 2018 BIG Innovation Award from the Business Intelligence Group.  This annual award recognized Security Innovation’s next generation application security training offerings.  “This year’s winners show the diversity of innovation and its impact on the economy, our cultures and the world as a whole,” said Maria Jimenez, chief operating officer of the Business Intelligence Group. “We are thrilled to be honoring Security Innovation, as they are leading by example and making real progress on improving the daily lives of so many.”

"2018 promises to be a great year for Security Innovation. We ushered in the year announcing record revenue, profitability and customer engagement in 2017, and within a few short weeks have received two awards," said Security Innovation president and CEO Ed Adams. "As demand for our solutions reaches new heights, we will continue to innovate our solutions so that they help our clients build and deploy software that is secure in the most challenging environments."
