SAN FRANCISCO, September 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — AppOmni, the leading provider of SaaS Security Management, announced that the company has been named a 2021 SINET16 Innovator. The SINET16, awarded annually, recognizes the most innovative and compelling technologies in their fields to address cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities.
AppOmni was selected as a SINET16 Innovator award recipient for its state-of-the-art SaaS security technology.

AppOmni makes it simple for CISOs, enterprise security teams, application administrators, and IT teams to fully secure their growing SaaS environments.
SINET16 winners were selected from a pool of 190 applications from cybersecurity companies across 18 countries. This year’s awards review committee was composed of more than 100 private and government security professionals including leading risk executives, experts in government intelligence and defense agencies, venture capitalists, and investment bankers.
The 16 winners were chosen based on the following criteria:
“SaaS applications are one of the biggest blind spots for enterprise security because usage has dramatically increased but security measures haven’t kept pace to fully protect sensitive data stored in the cloud,” said Brendan O’Connor, CEO and Co-Founder of AppOmni. “We uncover significant misconfigurations in nearly all of our risk assessments, along with data exposed to the public internet in more than 55 percent of those assessments. The recognition as a SINET16 Innovator is an honor and a much-needed spotlight on the need to prioritize SaaS security.”
