Livermore, California (EastBayDaily) — Allgress,a leading provider of Business Risk Management Solutions, today announced that it has been selected as a SINET 16 Innovator. Allgress will present on the topic of using Business Risk Intelligence to identify and mitigate security threats during the 2012 SINET Showcase. The event will be held October 25th at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., supported by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate. The Security Innovation Network (SINET) initiatives are designed to advance innovation and enable collaboration between the public and private sectors to defeat global cybersecurity threats.

Eighty emerging technology companies applied and were carefully vetted in a two-stage process by the SINET Showcase Steering Committee for the opportunity to present innovative and potentially disruptive cybersecurity solutions to an audience of representatives from defense, homeland security, intelligence and civilian federal agencies as well commercial, investment and research communities. Allgress will be one of sixteen companies presenting on stage.

“Every year the quality of companies applying to present as a SINET 16 Innovator continues to impress the Showcase steering committee. Since 2010 we have received hundreds of applications in our efforts to advance innovation, lead change and build trusted global collaboration models between the public and private sectors to defeat cybersecurity threats. We are confident that by raising the awareness of Allgress and other finalists’ capabilities, there will be an enhanced opportunity to impact the most pressing technology needs of the Federal Government and private industry – and, ultimately, the protection of our nation’s Critical Infrastructure and Command and Control systems. In this light, I am excited to announce the class of 2012 SINET 16 Innovators,” said Robert Rodriguez, Chairman and Managing Principal of SINET.

“Cyberattacks continue to evolve at an ever increasing rate which impact companies from the perspective of a triple threat – a combination of financial, reputational and regulatory risks. The ability to quickly identify, communicate and remediate impending cybersecurity events is critical to all organizations. Allgress is proud to have been selected by the respected SINET Showcase Steering Committee as an innovator in advancing technology to identify cyber risks quicker with less complexity. Allgress Business Risk Intelligence visually communicates the impact of an incident in an easy to understand way so business leaders, in addition to Information Technology audiences, can justified appropriate resources and budget,” said Jeff Kushner, Vice President, Marketing for Allgress.
