Ermetic, the cloud access risk security company, today announced it is a 2020 TiE50 Winner in the prestigious TiE50 Awards Program. This ten year old awards competition is a program of TiEcon, the world’s largest conference for tech entrepreneurs. Ermetic was selected for automating one of the most complex and manually intensive security challenges facing organizations today — cloud infrastructure entitlements management or CIEM.
“Being selected as one of the TiE50 companies for 2020 from a global field of competitors in every technology sector is further validation for our technology and market opportunity,” said Shai Morag, CEO of Ermetic. “Our ability to address the blindspot associated with unmanaged cloud permissions and configurations is solving a painful problem for virtually every company that uses one or more cloud infrastructures.”
“TiE50 again attracted high potential startups bringing innovation from different parts of the world. Besides the recognition associated with the TiE50 award, this year TiE50 also partnered with Meet the Draper’s, a ground-breaking reality show to give an opportunity to some companies to pitch to the show,” said Kamal Anand, TiE50 Program Chair.
The TiE50 Awards will be presented virtually to the winners during a ceremony on September 3rd. For more information, please go to https://www.tiecon.org/TiE50Awards2020/.
Ermetic has pioneered a new category called Cloud Infrastructure Entitlements Management (CIEM) which automates the detection and remediation of permission gaps in the cloud, between privileges that should be maintained and those that should be modified or revoked. Ermetic provides centralized enforcement of least-privilege policies, on a continuous basis across multi-cloud infrastructures. The solution is delivered as a cloud service and protects organizations from identity and access risks in cloud infrastructures from Amazon (AWS), Google (GCP) and Microsoft Azure.
Now celebrating its tenth year, TiE50 Awards provides a one-of-a-kind showcase for the world’s top technology and technology-enabled startups. TiE Silicon Valley’s premier annual awards program is keenly contested by thousands of early- to mid-stage startups of all sizes representing a wide range of verticals. Applications are rigorously reviewed by a panel of judges including venture capitalists, angels, successful entrepreneurs, and corporate executives. Since its inception, 84 percent of TiE50 winners and top startups have been funded at a total of over $1 billion. Many of these companies went on to acquisition or IPO with 29 of the exits at over $100 million.
