This week, SC Magazine announced the finalists for the SC Awards U.S., recognizing the achievements of the top companies and IT security professionals striving to safeguard businesses, their customers and their data.
The annual SC Awards have recognized security’s key contributors and outstanding products for more than a decade. As the industry’s preeminent awards program, individuals, brands and products shortlisted often address not only the challenges prominent today, but also the emerging threat landscape of tomorrow.

“The SC Awards celebrate the vibrancy, vitality and innovation of the IT security industry,” said SC Magazine Editor-in-Chief Illena Armstrong.”Featured companies represent the best of the security industry. They benefit our readers and, in turn, corporate users of technology.”
The Reader Trust panel was created through invitation of more than 1,000 end-users of security technology, representing the wide distribution of SC Magazine. Entries for the Excellence and Professional Awards categories are judged by panels of leading security officers from large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets. The more than 25 Excellence and Professional Awards judges are selected from this pool by Armstrong for their broad industry expertise and IT security knowledge. The panels conduct in-depth analysis and consider many factors in narrowing down the field to announce the finalists. This year, finalists were chosen from more than 600 entries submitted in 31 different information security practices.
Winners of this year’s SC Awards will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in San Francisco on Tuesday, March 2, 2010. Information security professionals from around the country will gather to celebrate and acknowledge a year of achievement for their companies and customers, against a challenging and changing security landscape. The event is a night filled with excitement, along with an invaluable opportunity to network with the top corporate IT professionals in attendance.
