2019 SINET 16 Innovators Announced

SINET, an organization focused on advancing cybersecurity innovation through public-private collaboration, announced today the winners of its annual SINET 16 innovation competition. The winning companies represent a range of solution providers that deliver cutting-edge technologies to address cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities. Winners were selected from a pool of 161 applicants from eighteen countries, including Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Entries were evaluated in a two-stage process by the SINET Showcase Judging Committee, which is comprised of 100 cybersecurity professionals, including chief security information officers from leading organizations worldwide, experts in government intelligence and defense agencies, and distinguished venture capital firms.

“Congratulations to this year’s SINET 16 Innovators, who are emerging as leaders in their field, and paving the way for critical security advancements across industries,” said Robert D. Rodriguez, Chairman of SINET. “Since the award program launched 11 years ago, the applicant pool of early stage and emerging technology companies with revenues under $15 million has become more and more competitive. We are proud to play a role in increasing the awareness of these technologies and look forward to watching these companies continue to grow and innovate.”

This year’s winners are headquartered in two countries, Israel and the U.S. In the U.S., six of the winners are based in California, three in New York, two in Virginia, and one each in Massachusetts, Michigan, Washington State, and Oregon. Ten of the companies were founded in 2015 or before, with all others launching by the end of 2018.

This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one b...
