DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 30, 2016) - Securonix, the industry leading innovator of behavioral analytics solutions that predict, prevent, detect and respond to cyber attacks, insider threats and fraud, today announced that its executive team has been recognized with three 2016 Best in Biz Awards, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
Securonix won the Gold Award for Executive Team of the Year in recognition of the team's leadership, propelling the company's rapid growth and expansion. Securonix is now the fastest growing enterprise security analytics solution provider. The Fortune 1000, top government agencies and other organizations rely on Securonix's industry-leading platform for security analytics that provides advanced monitoring and threat detection capabilities.
Headed by visionary CEO Sachin Nayyar, the company's management team includes highly respected industry leaders and experts who are frequently quoted by the media on today's top security issues, including chief scientist Igor Baikalov, former head of security intelligence at Bank of America; chief technology officer Tanuj Gulati; COO Chris Bell; CMO Sharon Vardi; and vice president of partnerships and alliances Darren Gaeta.
Nayyar was recognized as Executive of the Year (Bronze) and Gulati as Technology Executive of the Year (Silver).
The team is further strengthened by the foremost thought leaders in homeland security, cyber security and intelligence. Securonix's strategic advisory board boasts former NSA director Mike McConnell, former secretary of homeland security Michael Chertoff, former chief information officer of Bank of America Patrick Gorman, and former NSA deputy director Chris Inglis, among others.
"If companies are going to stand out from the crowd and remain competitive in future years, innovation is key. The market is tough and there is no guarantee that today's dominant players will remain so -- unless time and effort are concentrated on research and development," said Charlie Osborne, noted cybersecurity journalist at ZDNet and Best in Biz Awards judge. "This year's entries in Best in Biz Awards highlighted not only innovative business practices but the emergence of next-generation technologies which will keep companies current and relevant."
Winners of Best in Biz Awards 2016 were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of 50 judges from widely known newspapers, business, consumer and technology publications, TV outlets, and analyst firms. In addition to Osborne this year's panel included journalists from Accounting Today, AdWeek, Associated Press, Atlanta Tribune, Business News Daily, CNET, Computerworld, Consumer Affairs, Entrepreneur, eWeek Channel Insider, Forbes, Healthcare Innovation News, Inc., Information Week, InfoWorld, Investment Advisor Magazine, MediaPost, Multifamily Executive, Network World, Portland Business Journal, Security Products Magazine, South Florida Business Journal, Wall Street Journal, and Wired.
