CloudLock Co-Founder and CEO, Gil Zimmermann Named EY Entrepreneur of the Year® in New England
We love when our partners succeed. And today, we’re very pleased to offer congratulations to our portfolio company CloudLock, the leading provider of cloud cybersecurity solutions, and highlight their exemplary award recognition in the last couple weeks.
Yesterday, co-founder and CEO Gil Zimmermann, was publicly named as EY Entrepreneur of the Year in New England, recognizing his excellence and extraordinary success in innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to the local community. Gil was selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award was presented at a special gala event at the Boston Marriott Copley Place on June 4.
Last week, Red Herring announced its Top 100 North America award winners, naming CloudLock as a leading private company from the region and celebrating its vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture.
We invested in Gil and the CloudLock team in 2012 and have seen them become the leading cloud security company focused on providing enterprise class security solutions for data in the cloud. At inception, CloudLock’s goal was to transform the industry, making security the motivation for businesses to adopt the cloud, not the reason why they were afraid to make the change. This recognition by Red Herring and Ernst & Young serves as additional validation for the company as they continue to break down the barriers to cloud adoption and transform the cloud security market.
We look forward to highlighting CloudLock’s continued success as a company, and their progress in enabling the world’s largest and fastest growing companies to securely adopt the cloud.
