CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - November 23, 2016) - SC Media has named Trustwave a finalist in two categories of the SC Awards 2017 including Best Managed Security Service and Best Email Security Solution. 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 security industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity. SC Media recognizes the achievements of security professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities with the SC Awards' Trust Award category. Winners in the Excellence category are determined by an expert panel of judges, handpicked by SC Media's editorial team, for their breadth of knowledge and experience in the information security industry.
"SC Media's selection of Trustwave as a leading managed security services provider recognizes all the recent accomplishments the company has made establishing itself as a premier managed security services provider globally," said Steve Kelley, Chief Marketing Officer at Trustwave. "Our expanded geographic security operations footprint and telco partnerships, strategic technology alliances and new services, all driven by our enhanced leadership team and committed employees, demonstrate our focus on and desire to become the world's top managed security services provider."
Businesses are increasing turning to managed security services providers like Trustwave to augment or outsource their security programs. According to a recent report from industry analyst firm Gartner, Inc., Trustwave is the fastest-growing managed security services provider worldwide based on 2015 market share revenue. Industry analyst firm IDC named Trustwave a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Emerging Managed Security Services 2016 Vendor Assessment based on IDC analysis and buyer perception.
"Targeted attacks that blend web and email payloads are responsible for some of the biggest security compromises, and businesses must have an effective email security defense to respond to these attacks," added Kelley.
