Baffle Selected as 2019 SC Media Trust Awards Finalist
January 9, 2019
SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Baffle, Inc. today announced that the Baffle Advanced Data Protection Service has been recognized as a 2019 SC Media Trust Awards finalist in the Best Database Security Solutions category. The finalists for the Trust Awards are chosen by an expert panel of judges with extensive knowledge and experience in the cybersecurity industry. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards gala on March 5, 2019 in San Francisco.
“The bulk of data security tools we’re relying on is doing nothing to mitigate modern day attacks,” said Baffle co-founder and CEO Ameesh Divatia. “When it comes to the last line of defense, companies have been lulled into a false sense of security which leaves their most valuable data exposed. The sophistication and stealth of current breaches begs the need for data-centric protection that goes beyond traditional ‘at rest’ encryption.”
Baffle is the first company to enable secure data processing on a commercial application and database to guarantee data protection. The company vastly simplifies an enterprise’s encryption implementation, which is typically a complex, time-consuming and costly process.
“Every new year brings with it an unpredictable mix of adversity and opportunity for information security professionals,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “In 2018, we watched as ransomware took down entire city governments, popular online platforms were accused of mishandling user data, and technology giants announced an unprecedented industry-wide effort to solve the Spectre and Meltdown CPU vulnerabilities. Through it all, this year’s SC Awards finalists found ways to break boundaries, overcome challenges and contribute fresh new ideas to the world of cybersecurity.”
Now in its 22nd year, SC Awards is recognized as the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity professionals, products and services. With the awards, SC Media recognizes the achievements of cybersecurity professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. Vendors and service providers who offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the SC Awards’ Trust Award category.
The SC Awards gala honoring the winners attracts top professionals in the cybersecurity community and provides an invaluable opportunity for networking. To register for the 2019 SC Awards gala, please visit https://scawards2019.splashthat.com/.
