Netsurion, a leading provider of remotely-managed IT security services for multi-location businesses, today announced that Netsurion’s remote-managed security has been recognized as an Excellence Award finalist in the Best SME Security Solution category for the 2017 SC Awards. Finalists are recognized for outstanding leadership and providing superior security products to the cybersecurity industry.
“Ransomware, nation-state cyberattacks, 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  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. The Excellence Award honors the professionals, products, and services that have proven to be the best in the industry for protecting today’s corporate world from an array of risks and threats.
“Businesses of all sizes, especially those that lack their own IT resources, should have access to, and benefit from, enterprise-level network security. That is Netsurion’s No. 1 priority, and with our recent EventTracker merger, we are in a better position than ever to help keep small and multi-location businesses out of the breach headlines,” said Kevin Watson, CEO, Netsurion. “We provide our customers with robust managed network security, security information and event management (SIEM) via EventTracker, and enhanced compliance services at a fraction of the costs associated with a self-managed solution. Through these services, we help to ensure that franchisors and business owners’ networks are not exposed to devastating breaches through a single, poorly secured location, or through a third party with poor security policies. We are honored that SC Media recognizes our innovation in the space and dedication to providing the highest possible level of security for SMEs’ investments.”
“Cybercriminals have stepped up their game when it comes to wreaking havoc on the technologies and systems that are the lifeblood of our economy,” added Armstrong of SC Media. “We recognize Netsurion and the other finalists, for their outstanding achievements and contributions to our industry in helping to combat their attacks.”
Winners will be announced at the SC Awards 2017 ceremony to be held Feb. 14, 2017 in San Francisco. The SC Awards gala, which honors the winners and the best in the industry, attracts top professionals in the cybersecurity community and provides an invaluable opportunity for networking.
