Cavirin Strengthens Position as Industry Leader in Securing the Hybrid Cloud

Cavirin Systems, Inc., the only company providing cybersecurity risk and compliance posture for the enterprise hybrid cloud, today announced that the first half of 2018 has seen record-breaking growth for the company, with enhancements to its industry-leading CyberPosture Intelligence platform, significant executive team hires and global industry recognition. These milestones demonstrate the company's achievements and continued leadership in delivering an agentless approach to discover, assess, and help remediate both cloud accounts (AWS, Azure, and GCP) and workloads (on-premise, cloud, and container) so that organizations of all sizes can stay on top of any risk related issues that are discovered.

According to a May 2018 report, Cool Vendors in Cloud Security, by Gartner, Inc, "Most cloud-using organizations are dissatisfied with the current state of cloud security management and are willing to consider use of third-party security orchestration mechanisms." The report, authored by analysts Jay Heiser, Neil MacDonald, Lawrence Orans, and Steve Riley, also notes that "starting in 2022, multipurpose cloud control suites will represent two-thirds of the cloud security marketplace."

Cavirin's CyberPosture Intelligence platform removes security compliance as a barrier to cloud adoption by automating with the broadest set of customizable frameworks, benchmarks, and guidelines available. The solution secures both the public cloud control plane as well as target hybrid cloud workloads (servers), on-premise, within the public cloud, and within containers. The resulting CyberPosture score permits organizations to compare their current security posture against the desired ‘golden posture' and immediately takes corrective action if required.

On the strength of the company's product strategy as well as its recently announced Cavirin Connect channel program, CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Cavirin to its 2018 Emerging Vendors List in the Security category. This list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers who are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. In addition to celebrating these notable companies, the Emerging Vendors list serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology.

"Cavirin has seen tremendous momentum in the past months, driven by numerous strategic actions such as the launch of our successful Channel Connect Partner Program, several key new hires at the executive level and a myriad of industry accolades including the recognition as a CRN Emerging Vendors List in Security," said Jack Kudale, COO at Cavirin. "We are committed to providing our customers and partners with innovation in the cybersecurity industry and look forward to continuing the delivery of cybersecurity risk posture and compliance to the enterprise hybrid cloud market."

Global Channel Reach

Further driving Cavirin's momentum in the security space is the launch of the Cavirin Connect Partner Program which allows resellers, integrators and MSSPs to deliver cutting-edge cloud security to their customers. Inaugural program members include Astadia in the United Kingdom; Bodega Technologies, InterVision, Veristor, and Logicworks in the United States, Lite Distribution in Australia, Scalar in Canada and Titans Security in Israel.

New Hire Appointments

Since January, Cavirin has announced the addition of several key executive hires including:

  • Tom Hance as Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Field Operations
  • Mukul Kumar as Chief Information Security Officer and Vice President of Cyber Practice
  • Joe Kucic as Chief Security Officer

Together, these experienced executives in the enterprise security space will help the company deliver on its 2nd half of 2018 objectives, building on 1st half momentum that saw bookings growing over 100% between the first and second quarters.

Industry Recognition

Beyond the coveted CRN recognition, Cavirin has stacked up several industry accolades including:

  • 2018 Red Herring Top 100 North America winner
  • Gold: 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in ‘Best Compliance Solution' category
  • Silver: 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in ‘Best Cloud Security' and ‘Best Cybersecurity Company' (50-99 employees) category
  • 2018 Fortress Cyber Security Award recipient in the ‘Software and Apps' category
  • Trust Award finalist in the Best Risk/Policy Management Solution category for the 2018 SC Awards

Product Enhancements

For the first time, the Cavirin CyberPosture Intelligence platform will be available for demos at booth #871 at Black Hat USA 2018, which takes place August 8-9 in Las Vegas. The solution will be generally available this calendar quarter.
