Company’s AppGate Solution Also Finalist for U.S. Version of SC Awards 2015

BOSTON and LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM– Mar 24, 2015 – Cryptzone, a global provider of dynamic, context-aware network, application and content security solutions, has been named a finalist in the SC Awards 2015 Europe for outstanding threat solutions and services in information security. The awards acknowledge superior products and services that help customers address the most pressing cyber-security threats. Cryptzone’s AppGate solution is recognized in the Best NAC (network access control) solution category, and is also a finalist in the U.S. SC Awards 2015.

“Nearly a third of UK businesses admitted to a data breach in the last year. And, through high profile cases here and internationally, from Talk Talk to Target, and health authorities to Sony, cyber-attackers showed new levels of sophistication and determination in their attacks in 2014,” said Tony Morbin, Editor-in-Chief, SC Magazine UK. “With mounting headlines, it's more important than ever to recognize the tireless efforts of the men and women across the globe who work to combat these threats and provide cyber-security to organizations large and small.”

The SC Awards are the information security industry’s most prominent recognition. Winners in the Threat Solution categories are decided by an expert panel of judges, hand-picked by SC Magazine UK’s editorial team for their breadth of knowledge and experience in the information security industry. The awards honor both the cyber-security professionals working in the trenches, and the products and services that help protect today’s corporate world from a myriad of ever-changing threats.

“With today’s sophisticated cyber attacks, today’s enterprise needs a new generation of NAC that is dynamic, context-aware, and can enforce security policies based on an expansive variety of criteria,” said Kurt Mueffelmann, CEO of Cryptzone. “We are delighted that SC Magazine, both in the U.S. and Europe, has recognized Cryptzone’s thought-leadership and innovative approach in delivering access control solutions that take into account multiple attributes to not only verify identity, but also limit what a user can access once they are behind the walls of the trusted network, to ensure the security of today’s enterprise.”

“We are happy to acknowledge the outstanding achievements of Cryptzone and its AppGate access control solution as an Excellence Award finalist,” said Tony Morbin, Editor-in-Chief, SC Magazine UK. “The security risks and challenges facing private and public sector companies these days are constant and complex. Cryptzone is one of a select few facing this challenge head-on, fending off the many potentially devastating attacks.”

Winners of this year’s SC Awards Europe will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in Park Lane, London on 2 June, 2015. This is one of the most anticipated IT security events of the year and promises excitement and invaluable networking opportunities with some of the top corporate IT professionals in the country.
