“From Duqu 2.0 to mobile cyberthreats to the nearly $1 billion stolen from financial institutions by the Carbanak cybercriminal group, 2015 saw near-exponential growth in the number and complexity of cyberattacks,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “As the bad guys shift and pivot strategies, so too do the men, women and companies working to stop them in their tracks. These finalists have shown that they are the best at what they do.”
The SC Awards, now in its 19th year, are recognized throughout the security industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity. 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. Vendors and service providers which offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the SC Awards’ Trust Award category.
“Our mission is to secure both BYOD and corporate-owned mobile devices. To present organizations a mobile security solution that closes the vulnerability gap to effectively protect enterprises from network based threats, malware, and other targeted attacks originating from both internal and external adversaries,” said Adi Sharabani, CEO and co-founder of Skycure. “We are honored to have been recognized by SC Magazine for our work in cybersecurity and our efforts to protect businesses and employees from malicious attacks.
“Skycure has demonstrated that they are among the best in the industry at mobile threat defense,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. “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.”
