SAN FRANCISCO—Upfort, a cutting-edge cyber security and insurance platform, today announced that it won two premier industry accolades this year, building on its reputation as a comprehensive cyber platform that safeguards businesses against evolving threats.
Earlier this year, Upfort was honored by Business Intelligence Group with the prestigious Fortress Cybersecurity Award for “Organizational Excellence”, which highlights and recognizes solutions that take a holistic approach to integrating all aspects of cybersecurity. Specifically recognized as “Most Innovative in SMB Cybersecurity,” Upfort was also named a 2023 Top InfoSec Innovator Winner by Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine.
“We are proud and humbled by these industry nods toward our efforts of offering businesses holistic cyber protection,” said Xing Xin, CEO and co-founder of Upfort. “With new cyber threats and risks arising by the day, the demand for a one-stop cyber security and insurance solution has never been greater. These awards are a strong signal that we are on the right track toward accelerating the world’s journey toward cyber resilience.”
Upfort transforms how cyber risk is assessed and managed, empowering insurers and brokers to substantially minimize their clients’ exposure to cyber attacks. From risk management tools to insurance policies, Upfort offers organizations one easy-to-use platform for all their cyber needs, streamlining the way brokers and insurers sell insurance and shield their clients from cyber threats.
“We are so proud to name Upfort as a winner in the 2023 Fortress Cyber Security Awards program,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “As our society continues to evolve and become more reliant on networks and data, companies like Upfort are critical to providing the protection and trust consumers demand.”
“Upfort embodies three major features we judges look for in potential award 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.
