The satellite and space communities can vote to help OrbitSecure win the Satellite Technology of the Year

WASHINGTON, DC – Feb. 23, 2022 — / / — SpiderOak Mission Systems, the leader Zero-Trust Space Cyber Security solutions, announces that its OrbitSecure product has been nominated for Via Satellite’s 2021 Satellite Technology of the Year Award. The nominees are chosen based on innovation, benefit to the industry, and overall disruption to the satellite landscape.

OrbitSecure is designed to bring Zero-Trust Security to Zero-Gravity Environments. This light-weight, agile solution is designed to provide a software-only approach to ground and space platforms for assured command, control, and communication (C3) in hybrid space architectures. This capability means encrypted C3 and other data can travel on untrusted infrastructure and remain secure.

The winner of the 2021 Satellite Technology of the Year will be determined by a combination of the Via Satellite editorial team, including Editorial Director, Mark Holmes, and votes that come directly from industry. The public can vote for OrbitSecure online.

“We are honored to be in the running for this year’s STOTY award,” stated Dave Pearah, SpiderOaks Chief Executive Officer. “Right now, most of our industry has been focused on getting satellites and other infrastructure into space, and not so much on how to secure these systems from cyber threats once they are deployed.” Pearah continued, “We are confident the VIA Satellite nomination will help SpiderOak bring attention to these cyber vulnerabilities and the proactive actions necessary to address these challenges.”

From the host of the prestigious “Satellite Executive of the Year Award,” Via Satellite has a longstanding history of recognizing the people leading the charge for the satellite industry.

“The Satellite Technology of the Year award, less than five years old, goes from strength to strength. We had a record number of companies taking part in the process and the competition has been ferocious. There are so many great technology stories in our industry, that asking us to pick just one is getting harder each year. Our industry has a wonderful strength in depth from seasoned tech companies, to those starting out and trying to shake up the established order,” said Mark Holmes.

Voting closes at noon ET on March 22. The winner will be announced at SATELLITE 2022 on Wednesday, March 23 at the Via Satellite Awards Luncheon, which is open to all conference-level attendees.
