Celebrate! SC Awards Europe 2019 shortlist announced today

News by Tony Morbin

Finalists for the SC Awards Europe 2019 are announced today. Best Security Company contenders are: Digital Shadows; Palo Alto Networks; Kaspersky Lab; CyberArk; Sophos; F-Secure. Best .......

This year there have been more entrants to the SC Awards Europe than ever before, and the standard of entries has been exceptional, making the job of our judges even harder, putting in even more work than usual to choose the best of the best. So, a very big thank you to our independent judges representing a wide range of expertise from across the industry. Thank you!

Our judges do not judge categories where they may be perceived to have any vested interest, ensuring our results - whether you agree with them or not - are their assessment of how well the entrants answered the entry questions, what back up evidence they provided, and how good their customer testimonials were. Of course the best product or service in any category is actually the one that is most appropriate to your exact circumstances, nonetheless we are delighted to use this opportunity to congratulate and give recognition to exemplars of excellence, our eventual winners, many of whom toil away in the shadows, their achievements not even known by their clients outside the security teams.

With the industry’s leading lights participating, it truly is an achievement to make the shortlist, and this year, there were some very high scoring good professional companies that didn’t quite make it to become finalists. And in a fast moving industry where no-one can rest on their laurels, there are also finalists that may come as a surprise to some, competing on merit with better known players - who continue to jostle to outdo each other for dominance. Winners and highly commended will be announced on the night at a black tie Gala Dinner to be held at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, on the evening of Tuesday 4 June.

Tickets are now available here.
