Esteemed award recognizes Bresman’s mission for Semperis to be a force for good by helping organizations thwart identity-based cyberattacks

HOBOKEN, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) today announced that Mickey Bresman, CEO and Co-Founder of cybersecurity leader Semperis, was named an Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2023 New Jersey Award winner. The Entrepreneur Of The Year awards program, now in its 37th year, is one of the most prestigious business awards in the world for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. The award honors entrepreneurs whose ambition, courage, and ingenuity have driven their companies’ success, transformed their industries, and made a positive impact on their communities.

Bresman was selected by an independent judging panel composed of previous award winners, leading CEOs, investors, and other regional business leaders. The candidates were evaluated based on their demonstration of building long-term value through entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.

“At Semperis, our workforce across every department is part of a bigger mission to be a force for good by helping our communities and society at large to fight back against the impact of cyber-criminals and other malicious activity,” said Bresman. “Being a force for good is fundamental to our mission, and we back it up every day by supporting organizations, especially in the critical infrastructure sectors such as healthcare, to recover from cyberattacks. Receiving this award is a deeply humbling experience and wouldn’t be possible without the dedication and hard work of the team here at Semperis. Core to our culture is the overwhelming purpose to help whenever we can, customer or not. This tenet has been instrumental in driving our growth and success.”

Identity systems such as Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and Azure AD, used in over 90% of enterprises, are coming under sustained attack. With its multi-layered defense approach before, during, and after an attack, Semperis offers the industry’s most comprehensive security technology for hybrid AD and other identity systems, combined with incident response expertise. Bresman’s recognition comes at a time of significant momentum for Semperis, recently named to Inc. Magazine’s list of best workplaces for the second consecutive year and ranked the fastest-growing cybersecurity company in America by the Financial Times.

As a New Jersey award winner, Bresman is now eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year 2023 National Awards, joining a distinguished group of entrepreneurs from across the country. The national award winners will be announced at the Strategic Growth Forum®, one of the nation’s most prestigious gatherings of high-growth, market-leading companies.
