SC Awards toast the best in IT security

As part of the IT security industry's leading global awards program, the SC Magazine Awards U.S. gala was organized to honor the professionals, companies and products that help fend off the myriad security threats confronted in today's corporate world.

Acting as a barometer of how the fastest growing IT-related industry has evolved over the years, the SC Magazine Global Awards is the only program of its kind. Now in its ninth year, the event has grown into an international undertaking that concludes with our tributes to industry players directly involved in safeguarding leading enterprises.

The efforts undertaken by our U.S. panel of judges, which saw the participation of 15 leading IT security experts, were immense. This year alone, the SC Magazine Awards U.S. program attracted more product and service nominations than ever before. Winners were chosen across nine main product and service categories comprised of 40 sub-categories as part of our Reader Trust and Excellence Awards, as well as from a list of leading IT security professionals working in the trenches daily as part of our Professional Awards.

Come April 25, during the SC Magazine Awards U.K. Gala, the Best Global Security Company and Best New Security Solution will be announced – a decision in which co-chairs from both the U.S. and U.K. will participate. Indeed, as numbers of categories and nominations in the SC Awards have increased over the years, so too has the judging process become more complex and rigorous.

To be sure, this year's various SC Awards festivities are the culmination of concerted efforts to acknowledge the commitment, time and effort required of our industry's leading information security developers and corporate professionals to keep that momentum going.

So hats off to all of our 2006 SC Magazine Award U.S. winners!
