SANTA CLARA, CA–(Marketwired – May 15, 2017) – Baffle, Inc., developer of the first end-to-end database encryption solution, is proud to announce today that the company has been chosen as a “2017 TiE50 Winner,” awarded by the prestigious TiE50 Awards Program which recognizes the world’s most innovative tech startups. Baffle and the other 2017 TiE50 Winners were announced on Friday, May 5, at the Santa Clara Convention Center as part of TiE Silicon Valley’s TiEcon, the world’s largest technology anchored conference dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship.
The TiE50 award is the latest industry recognition for Baffle, as instead of trying to protect against data breaches — which are becoming more prevalent with each passing year — Baffle has developed a one-of-a-kind solution that makes data breaches irrelevant by making sure that the customer’s data is encrypted end-to-end, from production through processing. With Baffle’s solution, even if a data breach occurs, the data is useless to hackers. Baffle has also been recognized as one of CRN’s 2017 Security 100, and also was selected as a finalist in the 2017 RSA Conference Innovation Sandbox Contest.
“TiE50 has become a global brand that attracts thousands of companies worldwide. We screened more than 1,303 companies this year and selected the most innovative 50 companies as TiE50 Winners. TiE50 company presentations were well received at the conference. As a not-for-profit, our vigorous screening and judging adopts multiple regression techniques to ensure process integrity,” said program co-chair Daniel Zimmer.
“This highly successful program is in its ninth year and has been a major draw at TiEcon. The TiE50 Program is one of TiE Silicon Valley’s most successful programs,” said Sanjay Shirole, program co-chair. “This year, the screening committee included 31 accomplished domain experts and influencers who participated. Our judges included senior executives, venture capitalists, and marquee tech entrepreneurs.”
“Being named a winner of the TiE50 Award for 2017 is truly an honor, and Baffle is excited to be part of this prestigious list of innovative tech startups,” said Ameesh Divatia, Baffle co-founder and CEO. “We believe that Baffle has created a unique data security solution that can help IT administrators address one of their most persistent challenges — the threat of a data breach. As attacks on IT infrastructure become more sophisticated, data breaches are becoming almost inevitable. This demands a more pro-active, lifecycle-based response, which Baffle delivers with our unique approach of application-based encryption without modifying the application and supporting all SQL operations on encrypted data.”
