Keyavi Data Wins CISO Choice Award for Transformative Data Security Innovation

Cybersecurity Pioneer Honored for Visionary, Paradigm-Shifting Solution that Self-Protects Data from Cybercriminals, Including Ransomware Attackers

DENVER – November 3, 2021 – Keyavi Data Corp., a cybersecurity trailblazer whose game-changing technology is stopping cybercriminals in their tracks and reshaping the very nature of the data security industry, announced today that it won a CISO Choice Award in the data security category. This award — one of eight prestigious industry awards Keyavi has won so far this year — further distinguishes the company as a visionary shattering the cybersecurity industry’s preconceived notions of what data security should be.

The CISO Choice Awards showcase leaders at the forefront of global security technology innovation and recognize excellence in real-world solutions that chief information security officers (CISOs) value to protect their organizations. These awards serve as a buyer’s guide for IT leaders when selecting new technologies needed to safeguard company data. Winners were chosen by an expert panel of CISOs at some of the world’s largest enterprises.

“We’re incredibly honored to have received this award — a true testament to the work we’re doing to protect every type of data — anywhere, anytime, under any circumstance in the world – from cybercriminals or accidental loss,” said Elliot Lewis, co-founder and CEO of Keyavi.

Keyavi’s technology solves an age-old problem that the IT industry said was impossible: making every piece of data so intelligent that it automatically protects itself, refuses access to unauthorized users, stays continually aware of its surroundings and reports its whereabouts to its owner – everywhere and anywhere it goes in the world. Now, data is intelligent enough to know where it’s supposed to be and where it isn’t, when it should open up and to automatically report back to its owner who has it and what device it’s on in near-real time. No longer do files have to exist behind a firewall to be protected from cybercriminals or accidental loss.

“Data is the one constant in today’s complex, continually evolving technology ecosystem,” Lewis explained. “It’s the currency of IT and, increasingly, for ransomware attackers intent on monetizing the vast rivers of data streaming in and out of organizations every day. Up until now, these criminals counted on one premise – that data can’t protect itself – and are making big money off that one assumption. But now we’ve turned the tables with a solution that doesn’t treat the symptoms of data loss — it makes data smart. Now cybercriminals can’t access, steal or ransom data if it’s infused with our patented technology. As a result, we’re driving meaningful change to help people everywhere control their own data’s destiny and, at the same time, are rewriting the cyber industry’s rules for data security.”

“I would like to congratulate the winners of the 2021 CISO Choice Awards,” said Aimee Rhodes, CEO of CISOs Connect. “It was an extremely competitive playing field with a record number of submissions. It was exciting to hear the judges, who live and breathe security, share their experiences and discuss with one another the wealth of technologies that are on the market or coming to the market. Nothing can replace the real-word insights that the CISO judges bring to the table when deciding on the top vendors. Kudos again to the winners.”
