Recognition for Credant leader

Credant Technologies : 28 May, 2008  (Company News)
Alternative approach to encryption technology gains award for CEO of Credant Technologies.
Credant Technologies has announced that its CEO, Bob Heard, has been named Renegade Entrepreneur for 2008 by The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE), a global not-for-profit network of entrepreneurs and professionals dedicated to the advancement of entrepreneurship. The award was given at the TiEcon event earlier this month in Santa Clara, California.

Credant Technologies was formed in 2001 by Heard while he was working as an Entrepreneur In Residence (EIR) at Austin Ventures, to address what he saw as a growing threat - the loss of sensitive data on laptops and mobile devices. Heard's 'renegade' approach took on the security industry status quo, with a new architecture - creating a centrally managed way IT administrators could encrypt data, using a policy-based approach, to secure against both insider and external threats.

"I am honoured to be recognized by TiE, along with this impressive list of fellow entrepreneurs." said Heard, founder and CEO of Credant Technologies. "This award is the result of the entire Credant team working hard to develop an innovative product that was able to disrupt the status quo in mobile data protection, and help bring Credant the success it has today."

Since 2001, Credant has added more than 600 enterprise customers, has sold 4.8 million licenses and has won multiple awards. Credant was named the #1 fastest growing security firm in the Inc 500 for 2007 and #15 overall.
