BreachQuest Wins Infosec Startup of the Year

BreachQuest Named Winner of the Coveted Global InfoSec Awards during RSA Conference 2022

DALLAS, Texas – June 7, 2022BreachQuest, the company revolutionizing incident response, is proud to announce that it was named Infosec Startup of the Year and Next Gen Security Team of the year by the Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM).

“We are very excited to receive these prestigious awards from Cyber Defense Magazine,” said Shaun Gordon, CEO of BreachQuest. “We knew the competition would be tough and with top judges who are leading infosec experts from around the globe, we couldn’t be more pleased.”

“BreachQuest embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

BreachQuest was launched in 2021, with seed funding from Slow Ventures, Tinder Founders Sean Rad and Justin Mateen and Lookout Founder Kevin Mahaffey, to reimagine the incident response process and deliver, Priori, the first modern incident response platform. BreachQuest helps organizations exponentially improve on the industry standards of an average breach requiring 75 days to contain and costing an average of $4.24M. Compared to the current labor-intensive approach, Priori delivers speed and scale along with automation to incident response teams. Priori force multiplies the impact of every single responder.

BreachQuest is excited to be a member of this coveted group of winners, located here:
