Finalists are recognized for outstanding leadership and providing superior security products to the cybersecurity industry.
"Ransomware, nation-state cyber attacks, IoT vulnerabilities, data privacy issues and more are dominating the headlines right now and it's critical that we amplify the importance of these problems and highlight the actions organizations can take to safeguard their organizations and their critical data assets," said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. "As bad actors are constantly changing strategy, so too are the men, women and companies endeavoring to stop them in their tracks. These finalists have shown that they are the best at what they do."
The SC Awards program, now in its 20th year, is recognized throughout the industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity. Winners in the Excellence category are determined by an expert panel of judges, hand-picked by SC Media's editorial team for their breadth of knowledge and experience in cybersecurity industry.
"This recognition from the SC Awards is a testament to our next-generation approach to endpoint protection, which is essential in defending companies from today's advanced cyber attacks," said Tomer Weingarten, CEO and co-founder of SentinelOne. "This nomination further validates all the work that we've done on our Endpoint Protection Platform, supporting our recent recognition by the AV-TEST Institute as a viable replacement to legacy antivirus solutions. By pairing dynamic behavior tracking with machine learning, we're able to help customers detect and prevent all the malware types, including those that even 'next-gen antivirus' solutions cannot see."
"It's been said that cybercriminals are often the earliest adopters of new technologies, creating a unique challenge for organizations trying to protect private and public sector companies from attacks," added Armstrong of SC Media. "As a finalist, we recognize SentinelOne as one of an elite group of companies able to successfully meet this constantly evolving challenge head-on."
