During this year’s RSA conference, 1Kosmos was named a Global InfoSec Awards winner in the Next-Gen in Blockchain Security category by Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine. The influential awards recognize companies that are addressing tomorrow’s threats today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach. 

“We’re thrilled to receive this prestigious cybersecurity award from Cyber Defense Magazine,” said Hemen Vimadalal, CEO and founder of 1Kosmos. “With top judges who are leading infosec experts from around the globe who had discussions with our customers and the complex problems we are addressing, we couldn’t be more pleased to have BlockID recognized.”

Standing out amongst more than 3,200 cybersecurity companies, 1Kosmos is the leading distributed digital identity platform that integrates alongside existing operating systems, applications, and IT security infrastructure to perform strong, verified identity-based authentication.

“We scoured the globe looking for cybersecurity innovators that could make a huge difference and potentially help turn the tide against the exponential growth in cybercrime. 1Kosmos is absolutely worthy of this coveted award and consideration for deployment in any environment,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

This is CDM’s ninth year of honoring global InfoSec innovators. The award highlights startups, early stage, later stage and public companies in the information security space who have a unique and compelling value proposition for their product or service. With judges who are CISSP, FMDHS, CEH, certified security professionals, CDM’s mission is to find more innovative players with new and unique technologies than ones with the most customers or money in the bank.
