MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – Dec. 14, 2015: HyTrust Inc., the Cloud Security Automation Company, has just been named to SC Magazine’s prestigious Innovator Hall of Fame. One of only three companies awarded this distinction, HyTrust was recognized for its pioneering work in developing enterprise-class cloud technologies that enable the same level of security and control for virtual infrastructure as physical ones. According to SC Magazine, the distinction specifically recognizes innovation not as a one-year proposition but for sustained performance, depth of offerings, and responsiveness to real-world market challenges.
“We’re gratified to be named to the Innovator Hall of Fame, and we thank SC Magazine for this honor,” said HyTrust Co-Founder and President, Eric Chiu. “We view innovation as an ongoing, dynamic priority, and this dedication is reflected in our market offerings. We fully intend to stay worthy of this distinction by continuing to develop solutions and services that offer top-tier enterprise security without hindering productivity.”
According to SC Magazine: “Our long-term Innovators are market-shapers. Much of what they have done has created the de facto standards that have dictated what similar products do. These are the folks everyone else competes with in one way or another. And, as often as not, they are the tail that wags the dog because many of them are very small companies that have developed a great idea, partnered up with some heavy technical hitters or serial entrepreneurs and started a company to exploit their innovative technology.”
HyTrust has received numerous awards in the recent past for its contributions to the field of enterprise security. Just last year, SC Magazine itself named HyTrust as a virtualization and cloud security innovator for 2014. A year earlier, it received the same honor, and was called a “poster child” for today’s networks. At Intel Security Focus this year, the company was named Most Innovative Cloud Company and a month earlier, it won “Best of VMworld” for Security, Compliance and Virtualization. On the product side, HyTrust BoundaryControls won the Intel Technology Innovation Award 2014, and HyTrust DataControl was named the Best Cloud Security Solution at Net Events 2014.
Also in 2014, the Mountain View Business Association featured the company in its “Best of Mountain View Awards” in the category of Software Company. In fact, HyTrust was specifically listed as one of the “Hottest Silicon Valley companies.”
