The Cybersecurity Tech Accord announced yesterday that it has added 11 new companies to its pledge, bringing its total to 90 signatories. AnchorFree, Domain Tools, Flowmon Networks, MarkMonitor, NTT, Paladion,, Silent Breach, Tanium, Telecom Italia, and Unisys all signed on and pledged to “defend customers everywhere from malicious attacks by cybercriminal enterprises and nation-states.”

“With the growing number of devices connected to the Internet as the foundation of a digital era, the impact of threats and the importance of cybersecurity have never been more serious, and global cooperation in the industry is crucial to make the Internet a safer place,” said Shinichi Yokohama, CISO of NTT.

Launched at last year’s RSA Conference with 34 signatories, the Cybersecurity Tech Accord is an international industry-led pledge from technology and security companies. The Tech Accord also released a report yesterday touting successes in its first year and highlighting its commitment to its four guiding principles.

“The strength of the Cybersecurity Tech Accord comes from the breadth of the group and the diversity of its signatories,” said Tom Burt, corporate VP of customer security and trust at Microsoft. “This last year has demonstrated that hardware and software developers, security companies and cloud providers, from all over the world realize the importance of acting responsibly in cyberspace, and that the principles that form the Cybersecurity Tech Accord truly capture the spirit and intent of the entire industry.”

Other Cybersecurity Tech Accord signatories include Cisco, Dell, Facebook, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Oracle RSA, Salesforce, and VMware.
