SAN FRANCISCO, March 14, 2018 -- Valimail, the world's only provider of automated email authentication, received two Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in the 2018 competition hosted by Cybersecurity Insiders. The company took gold for Best Cybersecurity Startup in the 10-49 employee category, and silver for Best Email Security Product, Valimail Enforce™.
"Valimail's awards reflect that not only has it built an innovative product, but also that it has quickly achieved market traction in its short history," said Holger Schulze, CEO of Cybersecurity Insiders and founder of the 400,000-member Information Security Community. "With over 400 entries in more than 70 categories, the 2018 awards are highly competitive and all winners truly reflect the very best in today's cybersecurity industry."
Built to support the global DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance) standard, Valimail Enforce addresses the ongoing operational challenges of email authentication by managing organizations' ever-shifting email infrastructures and automating the process of authorizing senders. Valimail is the only vendor to guarantee that its customers will get their DMARC records to an enforcement policy.
"Email serves a critical communications function across today's global economy, but unfortunately, it is also the starting point for 90% of security breaches," said Alexander García-Tobar, the CEO and co-founder of Valimail. "From day one, Valimail has set out to increase trust in email in an automated way. We're honored that our company and core technology have been recognized by our fellow cybersecurity peers, and we're excited to continue on our journey of securing email."
The 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards recognize companies, products and professionals that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security. The finalists and winners were selected based on the strength of their nomination as well as the popular vote by members of the Information Security Community (both ratings and comments).
