Company Delivers on CyberPosture Intelligence with Significant
Platform Enhancements, New Hires and Recognition from CRN as a 2018
"Emerging Vendor" Leading Into Black Hat USA 2018

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
,1 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.
