Aporeto, a leader in Zero Trust Cloud Security, announced today that the company has been named to the CNBC Upstart 100 list, comprised of venture-backed companies that have the potential to transform industries and become tomorrow’s household names. Aporeto was selected from more than 600 global entries, being considered “one of the companies that have quickly become entrepreneurial success stories worth keeping an eye on.”

The article states that the 100 companies on this list have secured “many winning big-name enterprise partners or gathering throngs of loyal consumers, while attracting investment from the world’s top angel investors and venture capitalists.”

“We are certainly proud to be recognized by CNBC and join the other upstarts on this list,” said Jason Schmitt, Aporeto CEO. “This list shows that there is innovation in so many industries in 2019, but the article states that sectors like fintech, health care and cybersecurity have been particularly hot for early stage investors. We hope this recognition proves that we solve a real problem for our customers and partners with our identity-based approach to cloud security, which removes complexity by providing users with the ability to easily scale their application architecture, automate policy distribution and enforcement for both on-premises and cloud workloads.”
