“In an age where threats are ever-evolving, it is reassuring to know that one true constant is the commitment of dedicated information security professionals, as best exemplified by our SC Media Awards finalists,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “These inspiring innovators have set a high bar for their industry peers, as they continue to protect the world from attacks and vulnerabilities that imperil our security, privacy, and digital infrastructure. The year 2017 brought us WannaCry ransomware infections, the rise of cryptominers, and bugs like Broadpwn and BlueBorne that affected billions of devices. Whatever threats rear their ugly heads in 2018 and beyond, our finalists will be ready to act.”
Now in its 21st year, SC Awards is recognized as the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity professionals, products and services. With the awards, SC Media recognizes the achievements of cybersecurity professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. 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’ Trust Award category.
“Mobile devices are now providing a new way to conveniently identify yourself and eliminate the insecurity and frustration of passwords. We have solved the tap to login to your desktop or web site by merging government encryption standards like NIST 800-73 with the power and convenience of a mobile device,” said Jason Hart, CEO, Safetrust. “This enables an elegant but highly secure replacement for passwords and old fashioned smartcards with a simple tap of your mobile phone or wearable.”
“Safetrust has demonstrated that they are among the best in the industry for mobile security solutions,” added Armstrong of SC Media. “Being a Trust award nominee is a special honor as it demonstrates that you are at the top of your game, and your peers know it.”
