Waltham, MA, June 8, 2015 – EY today announced that Gil Zimmermann, co-founder and CEO of CloudLock, the leading provider of cloud cybersecurity solutions, was named EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™ 2015 in New England. The award recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their businesses and communities. Zimmermann 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, 2015.
“It is an incredible honor to receive such a prestigious award and I share this win with my entire team,” says Gil Zimmermann, co-founder and CEO of CloudLock. “When we launched CloudLock, our goal was to transform the industry, making security the reason why businesses adopted the cloud, not why they were afraid to make the change. We’ve accomplished so much as a company and an industry and look forward to keeping the momentum going.”
