"Fortify is honored to support the ISE Mid-Atlantic Awards in recognition of information security professionals who have shown proven leadership in the IT Security field," said Fortify CEO John M.

The ISE Mid-Atlantic Awards are held in conjunction with a two day Summit at the Ritz Carlton Downtown in Washington, DC. The Summit is comprised of cutting-edge roundtable topics, speakers, panelists, and presentations to challenge current thinking and bring to light the innovation and forward thinking of the region's top information security and IT executives.

"Qualys is honored at the opportunity to support ISE's efforts to recognize the security information leaders that have demonstrated exemplary achievements. Their job is particularly challenging these days as the threats are growing exponentially and because organizations have the tendency to quickly put the blame on them when problems occur and take them for granted when everything goes smoothly," said Philippe Courtot, Chairman and CEO of Qualys.
