MINNEAPOLIS, Minn.—(Jan. 26, 2015)—Entrust Datacard today announced that it has been selected as a Reader Trust Award finalist in the Best Fraud Prevention Solution and Best Multifactor Solution categories for the SC Awards 2015. To become a finalist, the Entrust® TransactionGuard Fraud Detection Platform and the Entrust® IdentityGuard Authentication Platform was selected by a panel representing the readership of SC Magazine as one of the best-in-class security products and services in their respective categories. The winners will be announced at the SC Awards 2015 ceremony to be held on April 21, 2015 in San Francisco.
“Cyber attackers showed new levels of sophistication and determination in their attacks in 2014,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “With mounting headlines, it’s more important than ever to recognize the tireless efforts of the men and women across the globe who work to combat these threats and provide cybersecurity to organizations large and small.”
The SC Awards, now in its 18th year, are the information security industry’s most prominent recognition for cybersecurity professionals, products and services. With the awards, SC Magazine 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.
“Cybercrime is increasing 78 percent annually — at great costs to both organizations and the consumers they serve,” said David Wagner, president of Entrust. “According to reports, the global cost of cybercrime will top $650 billion by 2017. The demand for stronger security has never been higher and we are dedicated to strengthening our solutions to meet these demands.”
“It’s an honor to be named as a Reader Trust Award finalist and we are thrilled that readers have recognized our TransactionGuard and IdentityGuard Platforms as some of the best products in the cybersecurity space,” added Wagner.
Vendors and service providers who offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the SC Awards’ Reader Trust Award category. A panel representing a cross-section of SC Magazine’s readership from large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets, selected the TransactionGuard and IdentityGuard Platforms from the hundreds of entries submitted across multiple technology categories.
“Functionality, manageability, ease of-use and scalability are hallmarks of the Readers Trust Award finalists,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “We are proud to recognize Entrust Datacard for their contributions to the cybersecurity industry and look forward to revealing the winners at the SC Awards Ceremony.”
Winners of this year’s SC Awards U.S. will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in San Francisco on April 21, 2015. This is one of the most anticipated IT security events of the year and promises excitement and invaluable networking opportunities with some of the top corporate IT professionals in the country.
