Offers security awareness training with thousands of real-world phishing scenarios in 34 languages.
Cybersecurity firm KnowBe4 has been on the forefront of tracking pandemic-related security breeches and phishing traps. Its ongoing What Keeps You Up at Night series of reports surveys hundreds of business owners at home and abroad to create a real-time index of the health of our networked economy. Compromised credentials, ransomware, and negligent users surfaced as the most common security concern for gatekeepers this year. This year, the company launched a free compliance tool for companies to gauge the integrity of their systems.
KnowBe4, the provider of the world’s most popular integrated new school security awareness training and simulated phishing platform, is used by more than 9,000 organizations worldwide. Founded by data and IT security expert Stu Sjouwerman, KnowBe4 helps organizations address the human element of security by raising awareness of ransomware, spear phishing, CEO Fraud and other social engineering tactics through a new school approach to security awareness training.

Provides security for networked, IoT medical devices.
Nearly 70 percent of medical devices will be connected or connectable to a health care system network by the end of 2025, according to Deloitte. This year, Medigate has emerged as one of the clear leaders providing security for IoT medical tech. The company has partnered with Microsoft and VMware to provide hospitals with greater visibility into their clinical data and to uncover network vulnerabilities. In a health care system already taxed by the pandemic, Medigate systems are able to save hours and hour of precious manpower for more critical operations.
Builds identity-verification tools for companies, boosting conversion rates.
When it comes to ensuring the security of networks and software, human beings are almost always the weak link, with misappropriated security credentials still accounting for a bewildering amount of financial damage every year. Even in its early stages, Passbase's biometric identify verification product has become a go-to for companies looking for frictionless, fool-proof verification processes that are compliant with GDPR CCPA laws. Alphabet, Stanford, Kleiner Perkin, and EY are early investors in a technology helping provide the foundation for next-gen biometric verification.
Builds analytics software.
When the pandemic hit, SAS worked closely with hospitals to create predictive tools that help them determine where to send vital resources. Its free Coronavirus Dashboard Report visualizes the virus’s spread globally, while its Covid-19 Scientific Literature Search and Text analysis software allows researchers to browse 50,000 scientific articles. Its Data Discovery Environment helps users create predictive models and reports using machine learning. In November, Pfizer was using SAS software to manage data on its Phase 3 Covid vaccine trial.
Builds modern software for child welfare agencies.
Pandemic regulations have made it just about impossible for social workers to conduct child welfare home visits, and conventional reliance on paper files and outdated technology have made remote agency work that much harder. As a mobile, cloud-based solution, Binti has enabled social workers to transition to safe, effective remote work to ensure that more children find caring, permanent homes. Since its launch, Binti has scaled to serve over 120 agencies across 19 states and has enabled over 30,000 families to be approved to adopt or foster. On average, agencies using Binti approve 80 percent more families per year in 16 percent fewer days.
