SC Awards U.S.: Honoring the industry’s best

The winners of the prestigious 2009 SC Awards U.S. will be announced on Tuesday, April 21 in San Francisco.

The annual SC Awards U.S. presentation and gala is fast approaching. As in years past, a distinguished panel of judges, as well as you, our readers, have selected the finalists for these prestigious awards, which recognize the best products, services and people in the IT security industry. This year, there were over 600 nominations in the various categories. And from those, finalists have been chosen for the Reader Trust, Excellence and Professional Awards.

The SC Magazine Awards are a global affair. While honors in North America are bestowed in the SC Awards U.S. program, the U.K. SC Awards call out the winning efforts during their London event in April.

With readers and judges for this year having made their decisions, we here present the finalists in the Reader Trust category. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards Gala on April 21 during the RSA Conference in San Francisco.
