San Francisco, April 16, 2018 – Cyber Defense Magazine has awarded Hornetsecurity with a 2018 InfoSec “Cutting Edge” award in the category of Advanced Persistent Threat. The award will be accepted by CEOs Oliver Dehning, Daniel Hofmann and Daniel Blank at the annual RSA Conference tonight in San Francisco. “We’re honored and humbled to receive this recognition for the first time.” Dehning said. “With the constant and evolving cybersecurity threats to companies around the world, finding ‘cutting edge’ solutions is no longer a luxury. It’s a requirement for any company that aims to provide true value for its clients.” The InfoSec Awards are the culmination of Cyber Defense Magazine’s annual review of the hottest, most innovative, best, market leading, next-generation and cutting-edge InfoSec (information security) companies. The winners were evaluated from nearly 3,000 companies worldwide. “With Cybercrime continuing to gain momentum, surpassing global drug crimes last year and totaling more than $600 billion in theft and damages, we are proud to honor Hornetsecurity as an award-winning innovator offering a new approach to defeat these criminals,” said Pierlugi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine. Hornetsecurity’s award coincides with a move into the United States, where it recently opened a base of operations in the rapidly growing tech community of Pittsburgh. Revenue has skyrocketed since the introduction of the company’s Advanced Threat Protection software in 2016. The expansion also aligns with the company’s continued focus on innovative solutions that are defined as much by customer service as they are by the software itself.
“At Hornetsecurity, we believe a paradigm shift is necessary in the IT community.” Dehning said. “We need more encryption instead of open data, we must assume overall responsibility for the security of the systems and solutions we offer and we must fight the imbalance between attackers and defenders by using more cloud-based security solutions.”
