I am thrilled to announce the distinguished finalists for the 2023 SC Awards. My sincere thanks to our esteemed panel of judges, who committed countless hours to meticulously review entries and ultimately designate this year's exceptional finalists.
Tom Spring, SC Media Editorial Director,
Congratulations, not merely to those who are being recognized, but to all those who took the initiative to nominate their personnel, companies and products. These awards transcend the mere recognition of individual accomplishments. They reflect the unwavering dedication and successes exhibited by the broader information security community.
This year the SC Awards keeps pace with the dynamic industry it lauds with the expansion of categories and additional judging parameters. The escalating dependence on cloud and SaaS applications has fostered a critical demand for robust API security in organizations. Additionally, the complex economic environment has pushed investors to realign strategies to best adapt to the shifting macroeconomic conditions.
For those reasons we introduced new categories this year including a Trust Award for “Best Security API Security Solution” and a first-ever Excellence Award honoring an “Investor of the Year”.
The diverse strategies and technologies showcased by our entrants encapsulate the extraordinary innovation characterizing the cybersecurity sector over the past 12 months. Entrants epitomized the industry's premier products, individuals, and firms. The list of this year's finalists demonstrate the robustness and adaptability of solutions deployed by network defenders to secure assets in an ever-evolving threat landscape.
Stay tuned! In August, we reveal the winners, accompanied by detailed profiles, interviews, and editorial commentary on the trends, challenges, and opportunities shaping the cybersecurity market. Subsequently, we have a cornucopia of planned videos and roundtables celebrating the winners and their achievements.
There is certainly much more on the horizon. However, for now, we invite you to explore the various categories, discover who has made it to the top, and celebrate the innovation exhibited by each participant.
