Trillium’s Rapid Growth Attributed to Close-Knit Partnership with the Innovation Platform
SUNNYVALE, CA, Aug 17, 2018 – Trillium Secure, Inc. (Trillium), a leader in secure data lifecycle management and cybersecurity, was selected as Plug and Play’s Hottest Company for the month of August.
“We highly value the full-range of support Plug and Play delivers for launching Trillium to its next level of success,” said Dr. Sachio Semmoto, Chairman of Trillium and serial entrepreneur who has led eight startup IPOs. To win this award, Trillium competed against hundreds of startups based in Plug and Play’s Sunnyvale office. The committee voted for the Hottest Company by considering growth, the leadership team, IP value and other factors.
“Trillium stood out from the companies we invested in because of its innovative approach to vehicular data lifecycle protection against cyber-attack,” said Saeed Amidi, CEO and Founder of Plug and Play. Because the latest car models increasingly resemble a computer on wheels, the value of a multi-layered approach to reducing your car’s cyber-vulnerabilities rises. Trillium’s global R&D centers develop comprehensive cybersecurity solutions for vehicle fleets.
“Plug and Play provides great access to portfolio and industry partners, which has been a major factor in fueling Trillium’s growth,” said David Uze, Founder and CEO of Trillium. “Being intimately involved in the larger ecosystem of investors, corporations, and startups is a big advantage as we pioneer the secure data lifecycle management industry.”
