PasswordPing was created to help secure the essential password security layer for consumer websites and corporate networks. PasswordPing allows organizations to block unauthorized authentication in real time by screening logins against billions of known, compromised credentials.
More than 80 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2018 IT World Award winners. Winners will be honored in San Francisco at the annual SVUS Red Carpet Awards Ceremony Dinner.
"We are honored to be named a Startup of the Year winner by our peers and the industry experts judging for the IT World Awards," said Mike Greene, CEO of PasswordPing.
"This recognition further validates the market need for compromised credential screening. Because of rampant user password reuse, organizations need to proactively screen user accounts to prevent credential stuffing and account takeover (ATO) attacks. PasswordPing is an easy-to-deploy solution that can help organizations mitigate these risks. Our customer base has grown exponentially since PasswordPing was founded in 2016 and compromised credential screening is quickly becoming an industry standard."
