Throughout the day, SC Magazine will be announcing the finalists from each of its 32 award categories, covering the Reader Trust, Professional and Excellence sections. 

Best Mobile/Portable Device Security

More and more employees are using smaller and smaller devices with loads of applications to access corporate data. Some examples include iPhones, iPads, Android devices, BlackBerries, and more. Products in this category deal with not only a collapsing perimeter, but also consumer-owned and -controlled devices being used to get at corporate resources. At a minimum, these devices likely will require strong endpoint security, point-to-point encryption and more. This is a broad category. If your product is used to secure this type of small device/handheld,. it may fit. Security can be for data at rest in the device itself, secure access to data in the enterprise, and encryption for data in motion between the enterprise and the device. Includes anything from hard disk encryption solutions and tools that track lost mobile devices to USB/thumb drive security solutions.

Finalists 

  • Good Technology for Good for Enterprise
  • IronKey for IronKey Enterprise Management Service
  • McAfee, Inc. for McAfee Enterprise Mobility Management (McAfee EMM)
  • Sophos, Inc. for Sophos Mobile Control

Best Multifactor Product

Products provide enhanced security to end-users or devices by offering credentials for access to an authenticator or authentication server.
