SAN ANTONIO, Aug. 4, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Frost & Sullivan assessed the cloud security industry and, based on its findings, recognizes Wiz with the 2023 Global Entrepreneurial Company of the Year Award. The company consolidates cloud security capabilities for better risk management and security protection of the cloud and cloud-native applications throughout their lifecycle.

The company provides full visibility into infrastructure requirements, security risks, and business priorities to enhance collaboration, and it operationalizes cloud security effectively for greater business value so that organizations can embrace a new cloud operating model.
The one-of-a-kind Wiz Security Graph provides a simple visualization that enables customers to focus on critical risks from different attack vectors and toxic combinations of multiple risk factors, proactively reducing their attack surface. Wiz is the first cloud security platform provider to leverage a security graph at the core of its product, enabling customers to triage and correlate critical attack paths and produce high-fidelity results that any security or development team can interpret and respond to immediately. The company strengthens organizations’ risk assessment and threat detection capabilities for better business decision making, differentiating Wiz in the market and allowing it to make a huge impact on the industry.
Anh Tien Vu, Industry Principal, Frost & Sullivan, noted, "Wiz has disrupted the traditional agent-based cloud security model with its agentless approach that focuses on cloud risk. Its cloud security platform scans every layer of cloud environments without agents, providing complete visibility into every cloud technology and risk without blind spots, differentiating Wiz in the market."
