Industry and Federal Government Leaders Collaborate to Defeat Cybersecurity Threats
San Francisco – September 26, 2012 – Appthority, The Authority in App Security™, and a leading provider of Mobile App Risk Management, today announced that it has been selected as a SINET 16 Innovator. Appthority will present The Appthority Platform, a cloud-based mobile app behavioral analysis engine, during the 2012 SINET Showcase to be held October 25th at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., supported by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate. The Security Innovation Network (SINET) initiatives are designed to advance innovation and enable collaboration between the public and private sectors to defeat global cybersecurity threats.
Eighty emerging technology companies applied and were carefully vetted in a two-stage process by the SINET Showcase Steering Committee for the opportunity to present innovative and potentially disruptive cybersecurity solutions to an audience of representatives from defense, homeland security, intelligence and civilian federal agencies as well commercial, investment and research communities. Appthority will be one of sixteen companies presenting on stage.
“Since founding Appthority, our team has worked extremely hard to build Appthority into the ‘Authority in App Security,’” said Anthony Bettini, co-founder and CEO of Appthority. “SINET’s recognition stands as a true testament to what our team and partner network have built, while confirming that the issues we address are vital to the market. SINET 16 will bring together the most innovative companies in the security industry. We plan to address how app security is changing the face of our industry and look forward to presenting the Appthority at the SINET Showcase in Washington, D.C.”
The Appthority Platform is a cloud-based solution that examines risky app behavior, helping organizations protect themselves while enabling employees to bring their own devices to work. Appthority defends organizations from security risks and vulnerabilities, privacy issues, and intellectual property and data exfiltration concerns. Appthority delivers Mobile App Risk Management across the enterprise and can integrate seamlessly with prior investments in Mobile Device Management (MDM), Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) and Mobile App Management (MAM).
“Every year the quality of companies applying to present as a SINET 16 Innovator continues to impress the Showcase steering committee. Since 2010 we have received hundreds of applications in our efforts to advance innovation, lead change and build trusted global collaboration models between the public and private sectors to defeat cybersecurity threats. We are confident that by raising the awareness of Appthority and other finalists’ capabilities, there will be an enhanced opportunity to impact the most pressing technology needs of the Federal Government and private industry – and, ultimately, the protection of our nation’s Critical Infrastructure and Command and Control systems. In this light, I am excited to announce the class of 2012 SINET 16 Innovators,” said Robert Rodriguez, Chairman and Managing Principal of SINET.
