The Security Innovation Network (SINET) has shared the results of its annual SINET 16 competition created to discover the most innovative cybersecurity companies.

Each year, the organization's steering committee evaluates products from early-stage security companies from around the world and awards those it finds most compelling. The committee consists of 100 cybersecurity professionals who come from large businesses, government, VC firms, and academia.

Entrants must have a cybersecurity product, not only a service, in order to apply for SINET 16. Companies must also be completely autonomous and have annual revenues of $15M or less. They cannot have been previously selected as a SINET 16 Innovator more than once.

Companies named SINET 16 Innovators are invited to present their value proposition in front of 300 to 400 investors, buyers, researchers, and solutions providers. They are also given a booth to show their solutions at the SINET showcase in Washington DC, and receive free coaching to improve their messaging.

SINET lists five key criteria used to judge these emerging companies: 

  • Marketplace urgency for the product/solution
  • How innovative/unique the product is
  • How well the technology solves real, critical security problems
  • The advantages of the product over others
  • The company's ability to succeed based on the state of its product, leadership, and capital

This year's winners were chosen from a pool of 82 applicants representing nine countries and a variety of technologies built to address security threats and vulnerabilities.

Which companies made the final cut? Here, we take a closer look at the winners and technologies included in this year's SINET 16 Innovators lineup.
