Xalient CEO Sherry Vaswani named Global Influencer in Security

Xalient Founder and CEO Sherry Vaswani has been named as a Global Influencer in Security by IFSEC.

Sherry said “I’m delighted to receive this recognition as it’s testament to the great work Xalient has to date. In establishing Xalient, I sought to build an independent global network transformation services business with a core belief that, for any successful transformation, cybersecurity must be built in from the start. This combined value proposition of cybersecurity plus SD-WAN has helped build a client portfolio of global brands and continues to drive our growth and success in all aspects of networking and cloud security.”

Chosen based on nominations judged by a panel of highly respected judges, with nominees being submitted from across the globe,  Sherry has been recognised within the ‘Security: Manufacturers/Vendors/Integrators/Installers’ category.

In selecting those to recognise, IFSEC defined ‘influence’ in the following ways:

  • Someone who has played a key role in driving technological innovation
  • Someone who has been a driving force in changing regulationstandards/guidance or best practice
  • Someone whose insights/opinions are widely respected and which are influential in shaping debate around industry issues
  • Someone who has been instrumental in the success of the organisation or business they lead or are employed by
  • Someone who has helped to raise the industry’s profile or been an influential voice in the national media

The nominations were then judged based on the persuasiveness of the nomination, their research into the nominee and their own knowledge of the nominee’s contributions to their field.

 

October is #CyberSecurity month so what better time to announce that we’ve obtained Cyber Essentials certification.

Cyber Essentials is a widely recognised, government-backed scheme that assists businesses in protecting themselves against cyber-attacks, viruses and malware. In an age where organisations rely so heavily upon the sound operation of their IT infrastructures, a cyber-attack can have far reaching and devastating consequences costing organisations time, money and resources, as well as impacting heavily upon their reputation.

This accreditation further evidences our commitment to always ensuring that sensitive and confidential information is handled securely and is safe from security breaches. Attaining Cyber Essentials certification shows that we take cyber security and the protection of our client’s data seriously.
