Press Release: Acceptto Wins 4 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards

Acceptto Shines Bright in Four Categories of the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards

Acceptto Co-Founder and COO, Nahal Shahidzadeh, Wins ‘Gold’ for Cybersecurity Woman of the Year (North America)

PORTLAND, Ore., February 27, 2020 -- Acceptto, a leading provider of Continuous Behavioral Authentication™, today announced it was named a winner in four different categories of the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, including: Silver for Best Cybersecurity Startup (between 10 to 49 employees), Gold for Best Artificial Intelligence Security Solution and Gold for Best Identity and Access Management (IAM) Solution. Acceptto’s co-founder and COO, Nahal Shahidzadeh, was also honored as a Gold winner in the Cybersecurity Woman of the Year (North America) category. 

Traditional binary authentication such as usernames and passwords, two-factor authentication (2FA) and multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions including biometrics represent real vulnerabilities. Authentication should not be treated as a discrete event with a start and end with a simple yes or no, but as a continuum, including post-authorization. Acceptto leverages a mixture of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AIML), expert systems and SMEs to classify, detect and model behavior; and assign real-time risk scores to continuously validate user identities prior, during and post-authorization. 

“We are thrilled to be recognized in the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards not only for our companies innovative efforts but also for our talented leaders who are paving the way to bring our company goals and visions to life,” said Shahrokh Shahidzadeh, CEO, Acceptto. “The honors stem directly from the promise to our customers to offer the best IAM solutions, as well as our commitment to drive the paradigm shift in cybersecurity through Acceptto's Continuous Behavioral Authentication”

The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards are an independent awards program that honor companies and individuals that demonstrate excellence, innovation, and leadership in information security. The finalists and winners have been selected based on the strength of their nomination as well as the popular vote by members of the Information Security Community (both ratings and comments) on LinkedIn, tapping into the vast experience of over 400,000+ cybersecurity professionals to honor the world’s best cybersecurity products, professionals and organizations.
