The Security Innovation Network (SINET) has selected Zero Trust Network Access and SASE leader Perimeter 81 as a 2021 SINET16 Innovator award winner. The award is given to the 16 most “innovative and compelling” companies addressing cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities.
The 16 winners were selected from among 190 applicants from 18 countries. The applicants were evaluated in a series of two rounds by the SINET Judging Committee, comprised of 117 Fortune 500 CISOs, government and private industry Risk Executives, and the world’s leading venture capitalists and investment bankers.
“Being named a SINET 16 Innovator is an affirmation of our hard work and the strength of our unique product vision,” says Amit Bareket, CEO and Co-Founder at Perimeter 81. “This honor comes at a very thrilling time at the company in which we are rapidly scaling and solidifying our position as a leader in Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) and the Secure Access Service Edge.”
“The era of the classic hardware-based VPN for accessing the corporate network is over,” says Sagi Gidali, CPO and Co-Founder of Perimeter 81. “As we’ve seen in the news, network access in today’s hybrid workplace can only be truly secure through cloud-based Zero Trust Network Access and SASE solutions like Perimeter 81. The Internet has become the corporate network, and employees must be granted access to networking resources based on who they are and what they need to do—not where they are located.”
Perimeter 81 simplifies cybersecurity and secure network access for the hybrid workforce by transforming multiple outdated, complex, hardware-based network security technologies into a single, easy-to-use, cloud-based security platform, including Zero Trust Network Access, Firewall as a Service, VPN as a Service, Device Posture Security and more. The company’s offering is designed to be easy to buy, quick to implement, and simple to use on a day-to-day basis, both for IT professionals and non-technical users of networking resources.
Perimeter 81 improves network visibility and delivers seamless onboarding and full integration with AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Splunk, and other major cloud providers. Since its founding in 2018, Perimeter 81 has been selected for numerous other awards, including Forrester’s New Wave Leader for ZTNA, Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500, Gartner Cool Vendor recognition, the Red Herring Top 100, CRN Emerging Vendor, and more.
“I am excited to announce this year’s class of the SINET16 Innovators who are emerging as leaders in their field and paving the way for critical security advancements into multiple government agencies and industry sectors,” said Robert D. Rodriguez, Chairman of SINET. “We look forward to watching these companies continue to grow and help protect our national security and economic interests.”
