Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) June 3, 2009
With the proliferation of the Social Web and high capacity portable devices such as media players and USB thumb drives, organizations face increasing security risks associated with newly emerging technologies and applications. To build awareness within the IT community and educate the IT audience at large on top security risks, Lumension®, the global leader in operational endpoint security, launched an interactive online initiative called The Office Campaign, in collaboration with Spark Design. For its innovative approach and thought leadership, the American Marketing Association Phoenix has awarded Lumension the best Online Marketing Campaign for 2009 at its seventh annual Spectrum Awards event on May 27, 2009.
"Today's work environment is proving to be a challenge for IT administrators and security professionals as employees introduce new risks through the use of removable media, mobile devices, laptops, and Social Web applications without putting security at the forefront," said C. Edward Brice, senior vice president of worldwide marketing. "In an attempt to bring awareness around Web 2.0 security risks and challenges, we took an innovative approach by working with Spark Design to develop an interactive game that would educate the IT audience on top security risks that may not be top of mind for IT professionals."
"The Office Campaign is designed to educate IT professionals on how they can address these security risks with key technologies such as Vulnerability Management, Data Protection, and Endpoint Protection to cure common office headaches."
The Spectrum Awards recognizes outstanding efforts in the fields of marketing research, direct marketing, advertising, online marketing, multi-cultural marketing and public relations. These prestigious awards give marketing professionals an opportunity to gain peer recognition and reward for their outstanding work in local communities.
