Palo Alto, CA – February 10, 2015 ERPScan was listed as number 61 on Cybersecurity Ventures directory of “500 Hot Cybersecurity Companies to Watch in 2015”, leaving behind all of its main competitors together with such industry “monsters” as Core Security, Arbor Networks, Trustwave, Symantec, HP, Junper, and many others.
This ranking demonstrates again that ERPScan Company with its comprehensive, lightweight, cost-effective and purpose-built Security Monitoring Suite solution for Enterprise Business Applications such as SAP and Oracle stands out of the vast majority of cybersecurity companies, being among the very best at what really matters — preventing enterprise applications’ security threats. ERPScan is the only one solution in the market that can analyze all ERP Systems’ Security areas from vulnerabilities and source code to SoD conflicts and give customers a 360-degree review of Business Application Security.
Noteworthy is the fact that Cybersecurity 500 is far from being the first time ERPScan was recognised as the field leader, actually ERPScan was recently named an ‘Emerging vendor’ in Security by CRN and distinguished by more than 25 other awards including those by Infosecurity Product Guide and SC Magazine.
In explaining their concept, Cybersecurity Ventures specifically pointed out the selection criteria for the Cybersecurity 500 companies taken in account while evaluating each company, among them: company growth, customer base, amount of problems solved , Demos and Presentations at Conferences, Corporate Marketing and Branding, published product reviews, feedback from CISOs and decision makers, and many others.
Notable is the following excerpt from the official press-release, citing Steve Morgan, founder and CEO of Cybersecurity Ventures:
We selected thousands of potential companies for inclusion in the Cybersecurity 500, by soliciting feedback from CISOs and end-user security practitioners, researching hundreds of cybersecurity events on the Cybersecurity Calendar, and researching dozens of Cybersecurity news sources that we follow.
It’s no wonder that Cubersecurity Ventures didn’t rank companies by revenues, employees, or annual growth. Most IT security decision makers, evaluators, and recommenders are already familiar with the largest cybersecurity companies. The idea lying beneath the research conducted is far-sighted in many ways, since organisers tried to show the rapidly expanding and constantly changing cybersecurity market in a way that would be hands-on and illustrative for the target audience: “We are trying to create more awareness and recognition for the most innovative cybersecurity companies – ranging from the largest and most recognizable brands to VC backed start-ups and emerging players” said Morgan.
This is the first year that Cybersecurity Ventures has compiled its list of the 500 hottest and most innovative cybersecurity companies, but it’s expected to become regular and we are very glad for that as it gives ERPScan a chance to verify our efforts in an attempt to increase business’ awareness of the crippling security threats.
Cybersecurity 500 survey provides major market players with an understanding of their role, and now it’s obvious that such reports will challenge cybersecurity companies, the competition is gaining momentum.
