This is the 20th year that SC Magazine has run its awards program, which recognize the best of the best in the field of information security.
The awards are highly coveted and winning an award is a major accomplishment for any company. Even being named as a finalist is a major achievement, demonstrating the high quality of a product or service.
Each product or service is subjected to an in-depth analysis by two panels of independent judges, including current and former CISOs and analysts and educators from academic institutions. Each product or service is given a score for key criteria with finalists and winners selected based on their average scores.
This year there are 29 awards up for grabs with Wombat Security Technologies’ Security Education Platform selected as a finalist in the Best IT Security-related Training Program category.
SC Media’s Illena Armstrong said “As a finalist, Wombat’s Security Education Platform has shown unique creativity and passion in their approach to addressing and combating even the most challenging cybersecurity issues.”
