Cyber Defense 2018 Global Awards Winners

Cyber Defense 2018 Global Awards Winners

Welcome to the Cyber Defense Global Awards for 2018.  It’s been six months in the making – our annual review of the hottest, most innovative, best, market leaders, next-generation and cutting edge INFOSEC companies offering incredible products and services.  While we’re in our sixth year of delivering awards to innovators in the USA, which we will continue to do during the RSAC conference in San Francisco, CA in early 2019, you’re looking at our Global Awards where we scoured the globe of the nearly 3,000 InfoSec players from the USA to Israel to Japan to Germany to China and back here to the United Kingdom.  Some were started in little villages in Greece and others in big cities like Tel Aviv or Tokyo or Beijing.  Some of them you have never heard about until today and that makes us very proud.  Some are startups, and some are early stage.  Some of them are bigger and well-known players.

One thing you will see that they all have in common – their products, services, solutions and technologies stand out from the crowd.  Their mission is the same as ours – to help you get one step ahead of the next breach.  They are on a mission to help you document regulatory compliance such as GDPR.  They have been leveraging new techniques including machine learning, artificial intelligence, cloud-based security, new forms of encryption and so much more.  After reaching out to thousands of these companies around the globe, we narrowed our list down to a much smaller group of finalists and only 100 companies around the Globe who will all share in the spotlight – winners of our prestigious award.  These companies have gone through much scrutiny by our judges and we share this outcome with you, here for your review and consideration.

Please join us in congratulating these winners – many of whom you will see at IP EXPO EUROPE as you make your way around the show floor.  Some companies received multiple awards in multiple categories because of various products, services and innovations they offer.  Please let them know you found them, here in Cyber Defense Magazine.
