Idaptive is proud to share that we were recently named Publisher’s Choice for Identity & Access Management in the 2020 Cyber Defense InfoSec Awards. We also “swept the podium” for the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, taking home the Gold, Silver and Bronze for Multi-Factor Authentication, Identity & Access Management, and Best Cybersecurity Company categories, respectively. What a way to start 2020! 

Idaptive was honored at the RSA Conference 2020 and received the Publisher’s Choice for IAM in this year’s InfoSec Awards. Now in its 8th year, this award honors some of the top cyber defense companies across the globe and boasts a selective judging panel of certified security professionals. Idaptive was selected because of our innovative approach to defeating the next generation of cybercriminals. 

We also claimed Gold in the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards for our Multi-Factor Authentication capabilities. These awards recognize those that “demonstrate excellence, innovation, and leadership in information security.” In addition, Idaptive was awarded a Silver and Bronze recognition in the Identity & Access Management and Best Cybersecurity Company categories.

If Corey could have any chameleon-like superpower, it would be the chameleon's tongue, which is ridiculously fast. Some of the world's smallest chameleons have the world's fastest tongues. In automotive terms, the tongue could go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a hundredth of a second! “I would be able to complete webinars in 4.5 seconds instead of 45 minutes!”
