The winners of the IoT, Cloud & Cybersecurity Innovation Awards 2017 were announced at the NetEvents Global Press & Analyst Summit in San Jose, California, USA. These prestigious awards celebrate the year’s most significantly innovative start-ups and established companies in the fast-growing Internet of Things (IoT), Cloud/Datacenter and Cybersecurity arenas.

For the Hot Start-Up – Cloud/Datacenter – Apstra was chosen to receive the award presented by Rajesh Ghai, Research Director, Telecom Network Infrastructure, IDC. Janice Roberts, Partner, Benhamou Global Venture Partners commented, on behalf of the VC judging panel: “It is time that CIOs change the way they think about networks given universal digital transformation, and we like the fact that Apstra is a pioneer of intent-based autonomous networking. It’s a hard problem and they are relatively early, but they have an exceptional team.”

The special Innovation Idol Award — presented by Mark Fox, CEO of NetEvents — went to Professor David Cheriton, who commented: “David has made a tremendous contribution to the computer networking industry since arriving in Silicon Valley 36 years ago.
