The 2015 awards received entries from 31 nations and territories. Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for "crowned," the awards were presented to winners last week during a dinner event attended by more than 400 people at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City.

More than 1,300 nominations were submitted and judged by more than 160 executives worldwide, who selected the Stevie Award winners. Ms. Bonaparte was honored in the Business Products - Computer Software (11 to 2,500 employees) awards category.

"We are again humbled by the accomplishments of so many high-achieving women in this program," said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards. "Their work is an inspiration to girls and women around the world who dream of starting and growing a business, managing a leading company, or improving their community. We congratulate all of this year's Grand, Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Awards."

Ms. Bonaparte is the president and chief executive officer of BrightPoint Security.

Being involved with emerging technologies and high-growth companies requires providing leadership for dynamically changing organizations.
