Codenomicon Selected By AlwaysOn As An AO 100 Top Private Company Award Winner
SAN JOSE, Calif., and OULU, FINLAND - August 6, 2007 - Codenomicon, Ltd., the leading provider of preemptive security and robustness testing solutions, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the AO 100 Top Private Companies for 2007. The fifth-annual elite AO100 list was compiled by the AlwaysOn editorial panel. In order to be eligible for the AO100 list, companies had to be peer-nominated, with AlwaysOn receiving more than 1,000 nominations from industry experts and the investment community.
Codenomicon DEFENSICS enables companies to preemptively mitigate unknown and published threats in products and services prior to release or deployment – before systems are exposed, outages occur and zero-day attacks are exploited. DEFENSICS offers unparalleled blackbox testing against the broadest set of applications, spanning over 120 Internet, wireless and digital media protocols. Unlike code analyzers and after-the-fact vulnerability scanners, the DEFENSICS platform empowers developers and security analysts to rapidly perform rigorous security and vulnerability tests at the protocol-level to identify and resolve issues that can result in reputation, quality, compliance and liability risks.
“The growing hacking community and increasing number of susceptible attack vectors elude traditional reactive security investments,” said Isaac Sundarajan, chief executive officer at Codenomicon. “In light of current incidents, patches and zero-day threats, the economic advantage for preemptive security testing, as part of a release or deployment best practice, is irrefutable. Both our customer success with Fortune 500 companies as well as being an honoree of this prestigious AO100 award is a testament to our value proposition and technology.”
Codenomicon and the AO 100 Top Private Companies for 2007 will be honored at the AlwaysOn Stanford Summit to be held July 31 – Aug 2, 2007 at Stanford University. The Stanford Summit is a two-and-a-half-day executive gathering that highlights the significant economic, political and commercial trends affecting the global technology industries. The idea behind the AO100 Top Private Companies list is to identify the most promising entrepreneurial opportunities and investments in the global technology industry.
“The AlwaysOn 100 companies will shape the future of our globally-connected technology environment,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “We were inundated with nominations from leading companies driven by tomorrow’s thought leaders and technology visionaries who are hard at work pushing the limits of innovation. My congratulations to the AlwaysOn 100 winners — companies which we predict will have the greatest market traction, strongest innovation and most game-changing approaches this year.”
