January 23, 2018

Netsurion, a leading provider of managed network security and resilience solutions, today announced that Netsurion Managed Security for Distributed, Multi-Location Businesses has been recognized as a Trust Award finalist in the Best Managed Security Service category for the 2018 SC Awards. The finalists and winners for the Trust Awards are chosen by an expert panel of judges with extensive knowledge and experience in the cybersecurity industry. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards ceremony on April 17, 2018 in San Francisco.

“Nobody understands the cybersecurity battle better than the cybersecurity professionals who work day in and day out to clean up and protect businesses from malicious attacks,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “Netsurion is one of a select few to receive this tremendous recognition of a Trust Award finalist, and they should be proud of the work this represents.”

Netsurion provides industry-leading data security and computer network management services for multi-location businesses.  Its centrally-managed, highly scalable service deploys easily and integrates enterprise-class equipment with best-in-class security architecture, providing an unparalleled level of security and manageability for its clients’ wired and wireless networks and POS systems.

The company’s many advancements in recent years have led to this renowned industry recognition. To address the increasing assault of advanced persistent threats on multi-location merchant businesses, Netsurion merged with leading security information and event management (SIEM) provider, EventTracker. The result – a revolutionary managed threat detection and response solution that protects the frequently vulnerable edge locations of an enterprise such as retail outlets, branch locations, and restaurants.

“By having enterprise-level network security and 4G LTE connectivity failover, our customers can utilize the latest in digital and mobile marketing, ordering and customer care technologies without concern that these new technologies introduce new security risks,” said Netsurion CEO Kevin Watson. “We are honored that SC Media, trusted by security experts across the globe, has acknowledged the value and protection our managed security services offer.”

In the past three years, Netsurion has been recognized as a Managed Security Service finalist twice, as well as an SME Security finalist.

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.

“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 Armstrong of 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.”
