Awards judge Karla Reffold said, “The competition this year is
incredibly tough and diverse. This was the toughest year so far to have
made the shortlist. There are so many fantastic individuals, innovative
products and companies that are doing great things within cybersecurity.”

Armorblox addresses the biggest problem for today’s information security
professionals: sophisticated attacks targeting employee communications,
such as socially engineered Business Email Compromise (BEC) scams,
phishing emails, and accidental data disclosures. According to the FBI’s
Internet Crime Center (IC3) 2018 Internet Crime Report, BEC continues to
grow as the most costly category of internet fraud with estimated losses
hitting $1.2 billion.

“With our Natural Language Understanding (NLU) platform, we’re using the
latest advances in natural language processing and deep learning to
address a new layer of security that has been inaccessible to other
security solutions: the content and context of textual communications,”
said DJ Sampath, CEO and cofounder of Armorblox. “We are honored to be
recognized for this award and for helping organizations and their
employees identify attacks that other security solutions miss.”

The winners will be announced at the Cyber Security Awards dinner and
presentation at the Park Plaza Hotel, Victoria, on the 4th of
July 2019.
