Cyber Defense Magazine named SPHERE winner of Editor’s Choice Identity Access Management category
NEWARK, N.J., April 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — SPHERE, a woman-owned cybersecurity business focused on providing best-of-breed software and services for access governance across data, platforms and applications, today announced that Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine, has recognized SPHERE as a winner for the Editor’s Choice Identity Access Management (IAM) category in the 11th Annual Global Infosec Awards at RSA 2023. These prestigious global awards recognize innovators from any company stage with compelling value propositions for their products in competitive infosecurity industries.
SPHEREboard, SPHERE’s flagship product, is an end-to-end workflow built to understand the state of an organization’s environment, automate collection, identify immediate risks and seamlessly remediate. SPHEREboard finds and remediates open access by identifying owners and defining collections, reporting on high-risk permissions, streamlining entitlements with owners, and fixing and standardizing access. The platform allows users to evaluate access and data protection controls, protect users and data on-premise and across cloud, and remediate vulnerable users, groups and data – all while maintaining an evergreen estate. What makes SPHEREboard truly innovative is its focus on the last mile of proper identity hygiene – remediating risk, rather than simply reporting it.
“We’re thrilled to receive this recognition and accomplishment as a leader in the identity access management space, both as a company and a product,” said Rita Gurevich, CEO and Founder of SPHERE. “This accomplishment further illustrates SPHERE’s position as a key industry leader, dedicated to constantly delivering beyond our customers’ expectations with every aspect of our work.”
This news comes on the heels of SPHERE’s recent appointment of Scott Gibson as Chief Operating Officer (COO), as the company continues to expand its offerings and serve a greater variety of customers. SPHERE also recently secured a $31 million Series B funding round in 2022, positioning the company to address the recently increasing threats to enterprise security.
