VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 28, 2014) - Cloud DDoS protection provider, DOSarrest's Proxy Defense has been named 'security product of the year' at the first UK Cloud Awards that took place on Wednesday evening during Cloud Expo. Alex Hilton, the Cloud Industry Forum's CEO, praised the quality of the entries, while the keynote speaker, Outsourcery's joint-CEO and BBC 'Dragon', Piers Linney used the occasion to describe how the cloud has come of age.

"We are delighted to have won this accolade for our DDoS Protection service," said Mike Gordon from the DOSarrest UK office who collected the award at London's City Hall. "The service has stopped thousands of attacks on our customers' websites and it has done so seamlessly. So, to be recognised as the best is a huge achievement."

The awards, launched by Cloud Pro in association with The Cloud Industry Forum and techUk, celebrate the very best of the industry and the 'security product of the year' category recognised the considerable innovation and capability that has been brought to market in the UK to further enhance the cloud's reputation as a secure and trusted environment.

"The calibre of the entries we received this year made the judging process no easy task. The standard of the entries, and ultimate winners, speaks volumes about tech success and innovation in the UK, and serve as a reminder of the dynamic and forward-looking industry we have in this country. DOSarrest fought off strong competition to take home Security Product of the Year, and I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate them," said Alex Hilton, CEO of the Cloud Industry Forum.
