March 19, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – Auconet, a leader in network security and access control trusted in massive enterprise networks, placed #83 out of 500 on the Cybersecurity 500 list in March. Cybersecurity Ventures, a cyber security industry research and market intelligence firm, announced the first edition of its directory of the 500 hottest and most innovative cyber security companies to watch in 2015. This follows right on the heels of Auconet’s placement in both the Gartner NAC Magic Quadrant and the Frost & Sullivan Global Network Access Control (NAC) Market Report.
“We’re happy to see that Auconet is being recognized for solutions that quickly resolve critical customer concerns, including 100% network visibility and control,” said Frank Winter, Auconet CEO. Auconet, with Global 200 customers in Europe, is now making inroads into the US with its streamlined Business Infrastructure Control (BICS) solution. BICS provides automated, real-time, full visibility and control to secure and manage hundreds of thousands of heterogeneous network ports, endpoints, servers, routers, switches, and connecting machinery…all from one central console and one consolidated database (CMDB).
To rate in the 500, the Venture team selected thousands of potential companies for inclusion by soliciting feedback from CISOs and end-user security practitioners, and researching hundreds of cyber security events and dozens of news sources. “We didn’t think a list of the largest cyber security companies would be very useful to our target audience of cyber and IT security decision makers, evaluators, and recommenders. They already know who the biggest vendors are,” said Cybersecurity Ventures founder and CEO, Steve Morgan, who also noted that the industry is expected to grow from $71 Billion in 2014 to $155+ Billion in 2019.
“We are pleased to be named in the top 20% of the Cybersecurity 500 list – above many established US competitors,” added Winter. “The stringent criteria their ranking selection team uses will help any potential customer make a truly informed decision.”
