PLEASANTON, Calif. – October 30, 2018Ellie Mae® (NYSE:ELLI), the leading cloud-based platform provider for the mortgage finance industry, has been named an honoree of a 2019 CSO50 Award from IDG's CSO. Ellie Mae was a previous honoree of this award in 2018 for its security innovation and leadership. This prestigious honor is bestowed upon a select group of organizations that have demonstrated that their security initiatives have created outstanding business value and thought leadership for their companies.

Selim Aissi, Ellie Mae’s senior vice president & Chief Security Officer, will accept the award that recognizes the company’s cybersecurity thought leadership and work in developing an advanced security program at the CSO50 Conference + Awards held on April 8 - 10, 2019, at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.

“Given the nature of the environment today, it is essential for us to be able to provide secure and efficient digital mortgage solutions for our customers,” said Selim Aissi, SVP & CSO, Ellie Mae. “We’re honored to be recognized as one of the top 50 security programs a second year in a row. This honor validates our efforts in driving security innovation and reducing cybersecurity risks for mortgage lenders and homebuyers across the county.”

“This year’s class of CSO50 award winners raise the bar on security innovation,” said Amy Bennett, executive editor, CSO. “While delivering business value and demonstrating thought leadership are the metrics on which they are measured, the greater value is in the peer-to-peer sharing of ideas across a range of industries, across company sizes, for-profit and not-for-profit, public and private. The magic really happens on the stage at the CSO50 conference when these projects are brought to life in presentations and panel discussions. It is an honor to give them the recognition they deserve.”
