Core Security Named Finalist in 2009 SC Awards Program

Core Security Technologies, provider of CORE IMPACT solutions for comprehensive enterprise security testing, has been named a finalist in the 2009 SC Awards program for outstanding achievement in information technology (IT) security.

Core Security’s CORE IMPACT Essential solution was named a finalist in two major categories:

  • The Excellence Award Best SME Security Solution category, which recognizes companies with superior security products that help customers tackle today’s most pressing security challenges
  • The Best Vulnerability Management Solution category of the Reader Trust Award competition, which honors best-in-class security products and services.

As part of the SC Awards program, IT security companies nominate their solutions for consideration under one of the esteemed Excellence Awards, and entries are judged by a panel of 18 leading chief security officers from major corporations and large public sector organizations.

“Our distinguished panel of award judges selected Core Security as a finalist in our Excellence Awards category, recognizing its contribution to the world of IT security,” said SC Magazine Editor-in-Chief Illena Armstrong. “CORE IMPACT Essential is among today’s most respected security products as chosen by our panel. Security is a key challenge for IT organizations and businesses worldwide and our readers recognize that companies such as Core Security are helping them meet their security challenges.”

In addition to its finalist distinction as Best SME Security Solution in the Excellence Awards, CORE IMPACT Essential was also selected as a finalist for Best Vulnerability Management Solution in the Reader’s Trust Awards, which garnered more than 600 entries, submitted across over 30 technology categories. Winners of the Reader's Trust Award will be chosen by the Reader Trust Voting Panel, which represents a cross-section of SC Magazine readership comprised of large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets.

“We’re very proud that the efforts of our outstanding development team are being recognized, and we feel that IMPACT Essential offers a truly unique range of features and functionality,” said Paula Varas, VP Engineering of Core Security Technologies. “To be nominated in both categories further highlights how automated penetration testing technology is now considered an essential component of sound security processes within many organizations.”

The annual SC Awards have recognized IT security’s key contributors and outstanding products for more than a decade. As the industry’s preeminent awards program, the individuals, brands and products recognized by the program address not only the challenges facing organizations of all sizes today, but also the emerging threat landscape of tomorrow.

Winners of this year’s SC Awards will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in San Francisco on April 21, 2009.
