Cycode Named a 2022 SINET16 Innovator

Cycode wins the 2022 “Triple Crown” of Security Innovation having been honored as a Gartner Cool Vendor, RSA Conference Innovation Sandbox Finalist and SINET16 Winner

Cycode, the leader in software supply chain security, announced it was selected as a 2022 SINET16 Innovator. The SINET16 recognizes the most innovative and compelling technologies in their fields to address cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities. This award comes shortly after Cycode was named a Cool Vendor in Application Security by Gartner, Inc. and a finalist in the RSA Conference 2022 Innovation Sandbox Contest — honors that collectively underscore the relevancy and timeliness of Cycode’s contribution to software supply chain security.

“It is exciting to be recognized for our innovation by SINET because its members are the thought-leading CISO-practitioners that advance real-world security best practices,” said Lior Levy, CEO and Co-founder of Cycode. “It’s exceedingly rare to be named a SINET16 Innovator, Gartner Cool Vendor and RSA Conference Innovation Sandbox Finalist in the same year. We’re humbled by this recognition because the three awards represent CISO-practitioner, analyst and the broader cybersecurity community, respectively. This motivates us to work even harder to empower AppSec teams to harden their organization’s software supply chain security.”

This panel selected Cycode from a pool of 194 applications from 18 countries, as a leader that brings innovation and energy to the cybersecurity industry.

Shaun Khalfan, SVP and Chief Information Security Officer at Discover Financial Services reflected, “I am honored to be part of the SINET16 judging process for the past four years. In the complex and dynamic environment in which we operate, innovation and value-add technologies are critical components to protect enterprises from advanced cyber threats. The SINET platform is a successful model which helps early-stage companies differentiate themselves in a crowded security startup space.
