I’m excited to announce that for the second year in a row, Cyral and Cyral’s cloud-native enterprise data security and governance platform have been recognized with Gold Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. The 2022 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards recognize companies for their excellence and innovation in information security.
“We congratulate Cyral for the recognition as a Gold award winner in both the Best Security Startup and Best Cybersecurity Product in Data Cloud Security categories for the 2022 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards,” said Holger Schulze, CEO of Cybersecurity Insiders and founder of the 500,000-member Information Security Community group on LinkedIn, which organizes the 7th annual Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. “With over 900 entries in more than 250 award categories, the 2022 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards program is highly competitive. All winners reflect the very best in innovation and excellence in tackling today’s urgent cybersecurity challenges.”
This year, we won Gold for Best Cybersecurity Startup and Best Cybersecurity Product in Data Cloud Security categories. The awards celebrate our commitment to excellence, innovation, and leadership in Data Security and Governance and furthers our mission to help data-driven businesses succeed by enabling them to secure and govern their data in the simplest way possible. What makes these awards special is that winners have been selected based on the strength of their nomination as well as the popular vote by members of the Information Security Community which include our customers, prospects, analysts and other industry influencers.
Three and a half years ago, we created a new approach to data security and access governance with an aim to solve complex customer problems in a new, imaginative way. With over 20 patents pending, we have continued to mature our product and extend our differentiation in the market. We are proud to have both Fortune 1000 organizations and cloud-native teams embracing Cyral to simplify how they secure their data mesh.
With companies becoming more data driven, the need for Data Access Governance is on the rise and analyst firms like Gartner and 451 Research have validated both the growing market demand and our approach. In July of 2021, Gartner recognized Cyral in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Data Security* in the emerging technologies of both Multicloud Database Activity Monitoring and Data Access Governance. And in August 2021, 451 Research recognized Cyral in the market insight report “Cyral seeks simplicity for securing data access in the cloud.”
These two awards join a growing list of accolades and awards for both our technology and our team. To learn more about us, and how we are striving to introduce the world to stateless interception for the data mesh, please visit our technology page or book a demo today!
