Secunia has been highlighted by The Telegraph in its “Start-Up 100: A-Z”* list as one of Europe’s most promising young technology companies, chosen by a judging panel comprising both Europe’s and Silicon Valley’s most influential industry experts. Secunia was listed in the category “Enterprise: Security, Storage, Collaboration, Database” and was selected according to five criteria: team, scalability, traction, market, and ‘wow factor’.
This is a wonderful compliment that further emphasises Secunia’s pioneering spirit, innovation, differentiation, and commitment to bringing IT security issues and Vulnerability Management into the boardroom and the living room. This is achieved by enabling organisations to leverage dynamic tools and real-time intelligence – with solutions such as the Secunia Corporate Software Inspector (CSI) – to implement best practices and drive increased accuracy and risk mitigation. Secunia is also dedicated to continually creating awareness among private users regarding the dangers of unpatched third-party software, and thus equips them with a free, easy to use tool to do so: the Secunia Personal Software Inspector (PSI).
All of this combined, is fuelling Secunia’s record year-on-year hyper-growth.
The fact that Secunia’s category was the largest, along with “Finance, Payment, and e-Commerce” reflects the intertwined connection between the security and financial sectors – the importance of Vulnerability Intelligence and Management as a critical element of corporate risk management and compliance.
