“Today’s threat landscape is extremely complex with sophisticated hackers, nation states, and malicious/careless insiders all posing significant risks to organizations. In order to tackle these cyberthreats, we need to replace legacy tools with next-gen security technologies ,” said Nanda Santhana, SVP of Customer Success. “We understand that change is difficult, and with these Awards, we want to recognize the difficult charge these leaders are taking on in improving the status quo.”

The winners were selected based on rigorous and exhaustive selection criteria. The organizations demonstrated a deep current understanding of cybersecurity challenges facing our businesses and nation today, as well as the foresight to define and implement cybersecurity programs and solutions of tomorrow. Each one of the winners has played a crucial role in shaping the Securonix products and functionality, and continues to provide valuable input to the Securonix product and engineering teams.
