MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ZingBox, a leading Internet of Things (IoT) security solution provider, today announced that it won the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Award for Overall IoT Security Provider Solution of the Year.
The CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards recognize the top companies, products, innovation and people in the cybersecurity industry today. All entries were judged by an independent panel of experts within the information security industry, with representation from a cross-section of industry experts. The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the creativity, hard work and success of cybersecurity companies, technologies and products.
"It's great to see the increased focus on the importance of IoT security. As a physician and healthcare leader, our goal is to provide high quality, safe and effective patient care. I've come to understand that it is our responsibility to also have a deep understanding of the technology we prescribe," said Maia Hightower, MD, MPH, MBA, University of Iowa Health Care Chief Medical Information Officer. "A hospital relies on many IoT devices connected to its network to provide critical care. Devices like IV pumps and heart monitors are designed for patient care, not security. These devices are that much closer to the patient, making device security an important and under-recognized patient safety and quality issue. Left unprotected, these devices are prime targets for hackers to gain entry into the network, causing disruptions to treatment that can inflict significant harm and possibly even death to patients, as well as access to private patient records."
"ZingBox is the industry's first and only IoT security solution provider to leverage the individual personalities of IoT devices to provide accurate visibility and protection of an organization's IoT assets," said Xu Zou, CEO and Co-Founder of ZingBox. "The recognition from the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards in this highly competitive category validates our vision to protect organizations from both insider threats as well as external cyber-attacks across a wide range of verticals."
