IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 19, 2012) - SecureAuth, the leading provider of identity enforcement technology for the enterprise, today announced that its SecureAuth IdP has been awarded the People's Choice Stevie Award for Favorite Security Solution. SecureAuth executives Craig Lund, chief executive officer, and Garret Grajek, chief technology officer, accepted the prestigious Stevie Award at the gala ceremony September 17 in San Francisco.
The nationwide public vote was conducted this summer, with the highest number of votes deciding the winners in 30 categories. SecureAuth IdP won the popular vote for Favorite Security Solution over finalists: GFI Software's LanGuard 2011, HP ArcSight Express 3.0, RSA NetWitness Live, ThreatMetrix Cybercrime Defender Platform and Viewfinity Privilege Management 4.0. SecureAuth IdP is the only solution offering two-factor authentication single-sign-on (SSO) and enables companies to be their own identity provider. The complete list of winners is available at www.StevieAwards.com/ABA.
"Winning the People's Choice Stevie Award validates that SecureAuth is addressing a critical business need to protect, authenticate and manage identities within the enterprise," commented Craig Lund, CEO and co-founder of SecureAuth. "Our close relationship with customers confirmed our belief that the enterprise needs to bring control over identity enforcement in-house to ensure that its own information security and governance policies can be strictly enforced. This Stevie Award is an honor and a commission that we take seriously, and we'll continue to develop solutions that enable our customers to enforce security policies across current and future platforms."
"We've long had a vision for how organizations need to take the reins of securing both content and access from mobile devices and for cloud applications, rather than being forced to adopt one access-control technology per device or application," said Garret Grajek, CTO and co-founder of SecureAuth. "Recognition as the 'Best Security Solution' for SecureAuth IdP underscores that giving the organization the ability to become its own identity provider is precisely the secure and total solution needed as cloud and mobile application delivery proliferate."
