Industry and Federal Government Leaders Collaborate to Defeat Cybersecurity Threats
COLUMBIA, MD–(Marketwire – Sep 27, 2012) – AirPatrol, a leading provider of advanced mobile device security systems, today announced it has been selected as a SINET 16 Innovator. AirPatrol will present its enterprise mobile device security solution during the 2012 SINET Showcase to be held October 25th at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., supported by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate. The Security Innovation Network (SINET) initiatives are designed to advance innovation and enable collaboration between the public and private sectors to defeat global cybersecurity threats.
Eighty emerging technology companies applied and were carefully vetted in a two-stage process by the SINET Showcase Steering Committee for the opportunity to present innovative and potentially disruptive cybersecurity solutions to an audience of representatives from defense, homeland security, intelligence and civilian federal agencies as well as commercial, investment and research communities. AirPatrol will be one of sixteen companies presenting on stage.
“Every year the quality of companies applying to present as a SINET 16 Innovator continues to impress the Showcase steering committee. Since 2010 we have received hundreds of applications in our efforts to advance innovation, lead change and build trusted global collaboration models between the public and private sectors to defeat cybersecurity threats. We are confident that by raising the awareness of AirPatrol and other finalists’ capabilities, there will be an enhanced opportunity to impact the most pressing technology needs of the Federal Government and private industry — and, ultimately, the protection of our nation’s Critical Infrastructure and Command and Control systems. In this light, I am excited to announce the class of 2012 SINET 16 Innovators,” said Robert Rodriguez, Chairman and Managing Principal of SINET.
“This year’s SINET 16 is an impressive collection of disruptive technology and cybersecurity companies,” stated Cleve Adams, CEO of AirPatrol. “As the popularity of BYOD continues to grow, the mobile device threat is becoming more pervasive. AirPatrol has an exciting technology and unique enterprise mobile device security solutions that will continue to empower and protect our nation.”
