Odo Security, a leader in zero-trust remote access and management, today announced it was selected the overall Hot Startup winner in the prestigious 2019 NetEvents Innovation Awards, held at the Hayes Mansion in San Jose, California on October 3, 2019.
Each year, the NetEvents Innovation Awards honor the most innovative startups and established companies in three categories: Cybersecurity, Internet of Things (IoT) and Cloud/Datacenter. The awards are judged by an independent panel of highly respected IT professionals, Silicon Valley venture capitalists, technology press, and industry analysts from around the world.
In addition to being named the Hot Startup winner in the Cybersecurity category, Odo Security also received the most votes from venture capital judges as their top investment choice.
Lead Judge Hiro Rio Maeda, Managing Director at DNX Ventures commented, “Legacy VPN doesn’t suit today’s working environment. We have seen too many security incidents occur due to poor access management and third party developers. The Doordash breach was a good example. Odo Security provides simple and secured access with detailed management of remote workers and third party developers to privileged assets; a solution which we judges saw fit with modern enterprise heterogeneous infrastructure needs.”
“Being named the Top Startup in this year’s Cybersecurity Innovation Awards as well as the preferred investment choice by venture capital judges further validates our technology vision and market opportunity,” said Or Zilberman, Co-founder and CEO of Odo Security. “Odo Access enables organizations to replace VPNs with a centralized access management solution that is transparent to users, enforces zero trust principles and scales across legacy and multi-cloud environments.”
Odo’s zero-trust architecture moves access decisions from the fading network perimeter to individual devices, users, and applications where business-driven security policies and access controls are best enforced. Every access attempt is treated as suspect until authenticated and authorized. Users only have access to those resources they have been authorized to see. In a new reality defined by the cloud, mobility, and increasing demands for agility, IT and DevOps engineers can ensure that the right people have access to the right resources at the right time, all while giving users frictionless access and maintaining total visibility on all user activity.
