CloudKnox Security, a leader in identity privilege management for hybrid and multi-cloud environments, today announced that the company has been named a Best of VMworld 2019 Awards winner in the “Judge’s Choice: Startup Spotlight” category.

The Best of VMworld 2019 U.S. Awards recognize the most innovative new products in the server virtualization, cloud and end-user computing markets. TechTarget’s staff appointed a team of experts and editors that selected winners. For the Startup Spotlight award, judges considered more than 70 nominated products, as well as products on display at VMworld 2019 that have not been released yet. The team judged products according to their innovation, value, performance, functionality and ease of use.

CloudKnox Security protects critical cloud resources from the number one unmanaged risk to hybrid and multi-cloud environments – insider threats. Their platform continuously manages and monitors all machine and human identity activity using their Activity-based Authorization protocol, transforming the way security teams enforce the principal of least privilege across the cloud.

“It’s a real honor to be recognized as one of the Best of VMworld 2019 Award winners in such a competitive field of entrants,” said Balaji Parimi, founder and CEO of CloudKnox Security. “Our approach at CloudKnox is built on the belief that the answer to preventing insider threats, whether accidental or intentional, should not be focused on restricting what identities can do but on giving them ‘just-enough’ and ‘just-in-time’ privileges to successfully perform their jobs. We see this recognition as validation for that approach.”

The win is the latest in a line of industry recognition for the CloudKnox platform, which includes the company being named a finalist in the 2019 RSA Conference Innovation Sandbox. The company recently announced the availability of the CloudKnox Cloud Security Platform for VMware Cloud on AWS.
