Valimail Recognized With Two Major Industry Awards
SINET 16 Innovators Award and TAG Cyber Security Distinguished Vendor Honor Valimail’s Automated Email Authentication
San Francisco, September 20, 2018 — Valimail, the world’s only provider of fully automated email authentication, is proud to announce today it has won two significant cyber security industry awards. Valimail is a SINET 16 Innovators Award winner and has been recognized as a Distinguished Vendor in the 2019 TAG Cyber Security Annual.
Each year, the SINET 16 Innovators are evaluated and selected by the SINET Judging Committee, which consists of over 100 industry experts. Companies are selected based on cumulative scoring associated with:
- The urgency in the marketplace for their products and solutions
- How innovative and unique their solutions are
- How well their products and technologies solve real and significant cyber security problems
- What advantages exist over other solutions
- The companies’ ability to succeed based on the state of their product, capital, and leadership.
“Valimail is honored to be included in the elite class of SINET innovators,” said Alexander García-Tobar, CEO of Valimail. “I couldn’t be more excited that Valimail’s automated email authentication platform has been recognized for its innovative technology and ability to solve the email market’s urgent need for trust.”
As a TAG Cyber Distinguished Vendor, Valimail becomes part of a leading collective of cyber security technology companies, as selected by Dr. Edward Amoroso, CEO of TAG Cyber. Valimail is the most sophisticated anti-impersonation system available today, enabling automated implementation and maintenance of email authentication to validate legitimate emails and block phishing attacks that threaten brands, their employees, and consumers.
“It’s an honor be included in this edition of TAG Cyber’s influential annual report,” said García-Tobar. “We are pleased by Dr. Amoroso’s recognition of our cutting-edge email authentication, brand protection, and anti-impersonation technology.”
“Trust is needed now more than ever, and emails are no exception,” said Amoroso. “Over 90 percent of all cyber attacks begin with email, thanks in large part to how easy it is to spoof emails and deceive recipients. Valimail’s mission is to bring trust back to email. In pursuit of that mission, Valimail has shown boundless innovation and true industry leadership.”
Each year, TAG Cyber makes its three-volume report available to the cyber security community at no cost. Volume 2 of the report, “Interviews With Cyber Luminaries,” includes an informative interview with Valimail CEO Alexander García-Tobar.
