TEL-AVIV, Israel and BOSTON, July 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- CardinalOps, the AI-powered detection engineering company, has been shortlisted in the 2022 SaaS Awards program in the Best Security Innovation category alongside other security leaders including Mandiant, Nokia, Aqua Security, and Dashlane. Previous winners in this category have included SIEMplify, Kenna Security, and Vectra.
CardinalOps uses AI-powered automation to address some of the biggest complexity headaches that organizations have in managing SIEMs in their Security Operations Centers (SOCs) – including Splunk, Microsoft Sentinel, and IBM QRadar – without requiring them to walk away from the significant investments they've made in their existing security stacks.
Now in its seventh year of celebrating software innovation, the Software Awards program accepts entries worldwide, including the US, Canada, Australasia, EMEA and UK.
Head of operations for the SaaS Awards, James Williams, said: "Innovative technologies have always driven industry forward, and having disrupted the software business, SaaS continues to mature as a key driver for sustained improvement across manifold verticals. The shortlisted candidates announced have proven to be truly innovative thinkers in the SaaS industry, whether they're freshly-funded disruptors or established names."
Michael Mumcuoglu, CEO and co-founder at CardinalOps said: "SIEMs are essential elements of the SOC but they're also complex to configure, continuously update with detections for the latest threats, and ensure that detections are actually working as intended. Compounding these challenges is the scarcity of detection engineering talent. We're proud to be recognized for helping our customers improve the ROI and effectiveness of their existing SOC tools with continuous, analytics-driven automation to address these challenges. We must continue to innovate to stay ahead of our adversaries."
SaaS Awards finalists will be announced on Tuesday 23 August 2022, with the ultimate category winners announced on Tuesday 13 September 2022.
