Hexadite Named to CNBC’s List of 25 Barrier Breaking Start-ups

upstartThis morning, we’re proud to announce that Hexadite has been named to CNBC’s inaugural upstart 25 list. The CNBC Upstart 25 highlights a new class of start-ups — those breaking industry barriers, creating new norms, scaling quickly and on a path to become the next household name. From hundreds of companies nominated from across the country, CNBC selected Hexadite as one of the 25 up-and-comers that have the potential to revolutionize, transform and disrupt.

From our press release:

“2016 was a breakout year for us. We’ve experienced incredible growth as companies realize the need for security automation due to the crushing cybersecurity skills gap and the massive increase in cyber threats,” said Eran Barak, co-founder and chief executive officer at Hexadite. “Hexadite being named to the CNBC Upstart 25 List is a huge honor and a testament to the fact that we’re on track to revolutionize cybersecurity and incident response.”

 

February has been an exciting month on the awards front, as Hexadite has taken home 8 industry awards. Again from the release:

In addition to the CNBC Upstart 25 List, Hexadite won seven other industry awards this month, including recognition as the Leader in Incident Response Solutions by the Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Awards; four awards from the 2017 Info Security Product Guide’s Global Excellence Awards®, including Gold for Innovation in Enterprise Security, Silver for Startup of the Year and Best Deployments in U.S.A., and Bronze for Security Products and Solutions for Enterprise (Large); and wins in the Fastest Growing Cybersecurity Company and Security Automation Product categories from the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.

Hexadite was a finalist for four additional awards, recognizing its innovation, growth, and position as a leader in the security industry. The company was a finalist for Rookie of the Year in the prestigious SC Awards (formerly SC Magazine Awards), the Best Cybersecurity Company and Incident Response Product categories in the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, and the Security category for the Tech TrailBlazers Award.
