Safend Named Best Security SME EMEA 2010 in Cyber Security Challenge

Advances to International Final Held at the University of London From Nov. 11-12

PHILADELPHIA, PA and TEL AVIV, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - October 13, 2010) - Safend, a leading provider of endpoint data protection solutions, today announced that the company has been selected as the SME EMEA (Small Medium Enterprise) finals winner in the Global Security Challenge. Safend will advance to the International Final in the Best Security SME  2010 category, which will be held Nov. 11-12 at the University of London. Safend will compete to be named the world's most creative innovator in the security space.

"Global Security Challenge's recognition of Safend's new ideas for cyber security validates our product's innovation and excellence-in-class," said Edy Almer, vice president product management and marketing for Safend. "Safend offers the most comprehensive data security solution available, and we are honored to advance to the Global Security Challenge International Final round in London next month."

"Technological innovation is the key to staying ahead of the threat to international security posed by terrorism. However, innovation doesn't always come from large established players, which is why a forum like the Global Security Challenge is so important. No other organization offers startups and SME's the platform and visibility that the GSC does," commented Richard Wilson, GSC director.
