ScaleFT Announces Open Call For Nominations for the 2018 BeyondCorp Pioneers

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ScaleFT, the Zero Trust security company, today announced a call for nominations for the new 2018 BeyondCorp Pioneers awards. The BeyondCorp Pioneers awards were created to honor the people  who have been essential in building and growing the BeyondCorp community. The nominations are for exceptional people among vendors, practitioners, consultants, analysts, journalists, and investors who believe in the core principles of BeyondCorp and advocate for enterprise adoption. Individuals may nominate others or themselves by completing the form at: www.beyondcorp.com/pioneers2018.

As the leading advocate of BeyondCorp, ScaleFT is launching the initiative to honor the BeyondCorp Pioneers by inviting a selection committee of industry influencers and experts to judge the submissions. The selection committee will judge candidates based on the influence, public profile, achievements, and advocacy efforts of each person. The selection committee is comprised of:

  • Chris Howard – General Partner, Fuel Capital
  • John Komkov – General Partner, Fathom Capital
  • Katie Moussouris – Founder and CEO, Luta Security, Inc.
  • Matt Asay – Head of Developer Ecosystem, Adobe

The call for nominations will be open until Jan 26th, 2018 at 11:59 PM. The winners will be selected and announced on Feb 7th, 2018 during the BeyondCorpSF Meetup hosted at Heavybit Industries.

“Much like the rise of DevOps as practices to ship software faster and more effectively, the principles behind BeyondCorp make security a business enabler by increasing productivity through better access controls,” said Ivan Dwyer, VP of Product Marketing at ScaleFT. “As BeyondCorp becomes a significant IT movement on par with the cloud, the individuals who are out there promoting the model are truly pioneers. We’re honored to recognize these individuals, and will continue to lead the community efforts to spread BeyondCorp across companies of all kinds.”

As community advocates, ScaleFT runs a number of local BeyondCorp Meetup groups, which can be found at: https://www.meetup.com/pro/beyondcorp. They recently opened up the BeyondCorp Everywhere program to grow the Meetup presence across the globe.
