WINNER: IoT Anywhere: ClearBlade 

ClearBlade is an Austin, Texas-based developer of an IoT platform that securely spans cloud, on-premises and edge infrastructures. The platform allows businesses to ingest, analyze, adapt and act on any data in real time and at scale. The company's suite of products includes a version for working only at the edge, an artificial intelligence and machine-learning option, complete security, and a low-cost pilot program for building and testing IoT solutions.

Eric Simone, CEO of ClearBlade, told Ingram Micro Cloud Summit attendees that ClearBlade integrates with systems that have been around for decades to standardize how IoT is delivered across every cloud and every device. "I don't care if it's COBOL written in 1974," he said. "We connect to it."

Simone also said that IoT is too difficult for many companies to integrate today, and that it should be as easy to deploy as any consumer technology. "ClearBlade enables this out-of-the-box experience," he said.


WINNER: Behavior-Based Security Verification Without Passwords: Verifyoo 

Tel Aviv, Israel-based Verifyoo takes the password out of security with a unique take on user verification. Instead, the software, when run on a mobile device, lets users write alphabetically with their fingers on the screen to train the software in their writing style, and then uses that training to recognize the user by asking them to write random characters every time the device is used. The pattern is stored on a cloud and works on any device, unlike biometrics, which is device-dependent.

Verifyoo CEO Roy Dalal said at the Ingram Micro Cloud Summit that selfie-based, photo-based, and biometric login solutions can all be defeated. With Verifyoo, he said, there are "no passwords and no hassles."


WINNER: Endpoint-Based Phishing Prevention: Pixm 

New York-based Pixm has developed what it calls the first endpoint-based phishing prevention technology that shuts down phishing attacks in real time, including attacks on applications protected by two-factor authentication. When the Pixm application is running on a device, and the user runs an application, Pixm can sense if the application log-in page is authentic or not. If not, it does not let the user log in, thereby preventing the theft of user credentials.

Arun Buduri, co-founder and president of Pixm, told Ingram Micro Cloud Summit attendees that Pixm's technology was recently featured at the RSA conference as one of the top 50 exciting security companies.

"We are here to stop phishing attacks for good," he said.
