Obsidian Security Wins Top Honor At Global InfoSec Awards

Obsidian Security is proud to be recognized as the Best SaaS/Cloud Security solution by Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine, during RSA Conference 2023. 

The Global InfoSec Awards, organized by CDM, aim to recognize and honor the best and most innovative companies and individuals in the rapidly evolving field of information security. With thousands of nominations from around the globe, the awards are a testament to the hard work and dedication of the winners in providing world-class cybersecurity solutions and services.

“Obsidian Security embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

Obsidian Security’s recent launch of its Next-Gen SaaS Security Posture Management (SSPM) solution played a crucial role in securing this recognition. Developed in response to ever-increasing breaches targeting business critical data in SaaS, and extensive research and engineering efforts, Obsidian’s Next-Gen SSPM addresses the core problems in SaaS security and governance, with three integrated modules – Obsidian Integration Risk Management, Obsidian Extend, and Obsidian Compliance Posture Management – that work together seamlessly to help enterprises reduce 3rd party SaaS-related risks by up to 80% and measurably simplify SaaS compliance processes and governance.

In the interconnected world of SaaS, security and compliance require a common language and a deep understanding of the connections between every application. We live in a hybrid workplace, multi-cloud, SaaS world. Users, data and business assets all live in SaaS, with data that’s in someone else’s infrastructure, outside of your perimeter but within your responsibility. Yet security still has a predominantly legacy mindset, focused on infrastructure and endpoints. Meanwhile, compliance is using yesterday’s game plan to mitigate risk, its work removed from the security landscape. Every enterprise is an intricate web of users, applications, configurations and connections — requiring a deeper understanding of every part of these intersections to ensure security and compliance.

Obsidian’s addresses the growing security and compliance challenges faced by organizations due to the rapid adoption of SaaS applications and the increasing complexity of IT ecosystems. The Next-Gen SSPM solution is designed to provide comprehensive SaaS security posture management, advanced threat detection with real-time response, manage 3rd party risk in SaaS, and map technical SaaS controls to specific regulatory requirements to stay compliant all from a single platform, setting Obsidian Security apart from its competitors.

We’re thrilled to be recognized for our efforts, but we are also humbled by the mountains that we as an industry still need to scale on our mission to make the impact of SaaS breaches a thing of the past. While we celebrate our recognition, we also remain committed to continuously improving our products and developing new solutions to help enterprises better manage and secure their SaaS environments.

We are just getting started.
