MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ZingBox, leading a new generation of IoT security solutions focused on IoT service protection, today announced that its CTO and co-founder, Dr. May Wang, was named a finalist in three categories of the 14th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business, which include: Most Innovative Woman of the Year, Maverick of the Year, and Woman of the Year – Technology. In addition, the company itself has been named a finalist in the Most Innovative Company of the Year – More than 10 Employees category, while its IoT Guardian solution is a finalist in both the Best New Product of the Year – Business Products and Best New Product or Service of the Year - Business Services categories, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run – worldwide. The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world's premier business awards.
"Dr. May Wang has transcended cultural and academic barriers throughout her pioneering technology career," said Xu Zou, CEO at ZingBox. "This past year, Wang has played a leading role in protecting organizations from cyber threats and has worked with various government agencies to transform the industries' view on the importance of IoT security. She is truly deserving of being a finalist in each of the categories she was named, and I have no doubt that she, along with our company and its solution, will take a place as a winner."
ZingBox IoT Guardian, which was named a finalist in two categories, provides visibility into the nature and actions of all connected devices. Because it builds the deep knowledge of each individual device's trusted behavior, it can automatically sense, identify, and classify connected devices. Unlike traditional end-point security products, IoT Guardian eliminates the need to install and manage software agents.
More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 90 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year.
Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners will be announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Friday, November 17. Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the USA and several other countries are expected to attend. The event will be broadcast on Livestream.
"Every year we say that the current crop of Stevies for Women nominations couldn't be better, and the next year we're proven wrong," said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards. "The judges' scores and comments bear witness to the fact that this year we will honor a truly remarkable class of women and women-led organizations in New York on November 17."
