Concentric Semantic Intelligence Named Industry’s Most Innovative Product of 2020 in American Cyber Awards Program

Company Recognized by Distinguished Panel of Judges with Top Innovation Award for Uniquely Automating Unstructured Data Security Using Deep Learning

SAN JOSE, Calif.– Concentric Inc., a leading vendor of intelligent AI-based solutions for protecting business-critical data, today announced that its Semantic Intelligence™ solution has been named the industry’s most Innovative Product of the Year in the American Cyber Awards program. 

Concentric’s Semantic Intelligence automates unstructured data security using deep learning to categorize data, uncover business criticality and reduce risk. The solution uses the baseline security practices observed for each data category to calculate a “risk distance” from the baseline to each individual form or file within a company. Risk distance reveals inappropriate sharing, risky storage locations and incorrect classifications – all without regex, rules or upfront policy configuration. Concentric works autonomously to reduce staff demands required to secure data, while providing continuous protection.

The American Cyber Awards were established to shine a spotlight on the most innovative and successful people, teams and products in cybersecurity in America. The program is totally independent with no affiliation to any magazines, organizations, or products. As a result, its industry leading judges are able to make all their decisions on merit alone. Concentric won its American Cyber Award in the Innovative Product of the Year awards category.
