Menlo Security Named to Prestigious List of SINET Innovators for Cybersecurity

MENLO PARK, Calif., Sept. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Menlo Security, a pioneer of cloud-based malware isolation, today announced that it has been named a SINET innovator, as one of the 16 security start-ups offering cutting edge Cybersecurity technologies to address Web threats and vulnerabilities in the enterprise.

SINET is focused on advancing Cybersecurity innovation through public-private collaboration. Sixteen winning companies were selected from a pool of international applicants from nine different countries.  "I am proud to recognize Menlo Security as one of this year's SINET 16 Innovators," said Robert Rodriguez, Chairman and Founder of SINET. "Of our four programs each year, Silicon Valley, New York City, Washington DC and London, the Showcase is my favorite as it has a clear deliverable in our mission to advance innovation in the Cybersecurity domain."

"Malware coming from the Web and email continues to play a significant role in many of today's high-profile cyber attacks and data breaches," said Poornima DeBolle, co-founder and chief product officer for Menlo Security. "Being named to the SINET list of 16 innovators for Cybersecurity is a great recognition of our pioneering work using Isolation technology to address these major threat vectors."

Menlo Security's Isolation solution holds the promise of completely eliminating malware from the Web and email. Unlike current threat prevention systems that attempt to distinguish good content from bad, Menlo Security isolates and executes Web and email content in the cloud, before it can reach user devices. The patented technology is simple to deploy, requires no endpoint software or plug-ins and delivers a 100% secure and completely native user experience, essentially indistinguishable from direct interaction with a web site.

This year's SINET entries were evaluated in a two-stage process by the SINET Showcase Steering Committee, comprised of 100 Cybersecurity professionals, including chief security information officers from leading organizations worldwide, experts in government intelligence and defense agencies, distinguished venture capital firms specializing in security, security entrepreneurs and security experts from academia.

Menlo Security will present their innovative Cybersecurity products at the SINET Showcase at the National Press Building in Washington, D.C. on November 2nd and 3rd.
