The list looks at startups that “have gained significant traction and recognition for their technology that looks to solve security challenges around orchestration, threat detection, the Internet of Things, risk scoring and network security.”
Bastille was recognized not just for being “the first cybersecurity company to detect and mitigate threats from the Internet of Things in the enterprise,” but for several key company wins including being named a finalist in the RSA Conference’s Innovation Sandbox competition, a Gartner 2016 “Cool Vendor,” and completing a successful round of venture capital funding.
Bastille also received worldwide attention and acclaim in February when it unveiled “MouseJack,” a vulnerability in wireless mice and keyboards that potentially puts billions of PC’s and millions of networks at risk of being breached.
As the Internet of Things continues to integrate itself into our daily lives, the potential threats associated with IoT increase as well. Bastille remains dedicated to stopping these IoT threats and the company’s inclusion in CRN’s Cool Startup list is validation of their ongoing efforts.
