Haystax Technology has been named a 2017 Security Innovation Network (SINET) 16 Innovator, a designation as one of the most innovative and compelling companies in cybersecurity.
Each year SINET’s Steering Committee evaluates the products and technologies of hundreds of new and emerging cybersecurity companies, selecting 16 that they deem to be innovators. Companies are considered based on the following criteria:
- The urgency in the marketplace for their products and solutions

- How well their products and technologies solve real and significant cybersecurity problems
- What advantages they have over other solutions
- The companies’ ability to succeed based on the state of their product, capital, and leadership.
