  • Protegrity’s Data Protection Platform was awarded the gold medal in the data-centric security category of the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.
  • This award validates Protegrity’s mission to protect sensitive data and highlights the importance of fine-grain data-security and privacy protection as table stakes for companies of all sizes.

Protegrity isn’t competing in the upcoming Summer Olympics, but we’re proud to show off our gold “medal.” The Protegrity Data Protection Platform was recently named a gold winner of the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards for product excellence in data-centric security.

The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards annually recognizes companies, products, and professionals that demonstrate excellence, innovation, and leadership in information security. The awards are produced by Cybersecurity Insiders—in partnership with the Information Security Community on LinkedIn—tapping into the vast experience of more than 500,000 cybersecurity professionals to honor the best in cybersecurity around the world. Finalists and winners were selected based on the strength of the nomination, as well as by public popular vote.

Throughout the past year, Protegrity has continually focused its efforts on bringing offerings to market that provide greater flexibility and transforming how customers engage with and use Protegrity’s data-centric security solutions. For example, the company recently unveiled the eighth major release (v8) of its Data Protection Platform, which strengthens how the company provides global enterprises, mid-market companies, and startups the flexibility to easily secure sensitive data across hybrid- and multi-cloud environments from a single platform.

“We congratulate Protegrity for its recognition as a gold award winner for the data-centric security category of the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards,” said Holger Schulze, CEO of Cybersecurity Insiders and founder of the Information Security Community on LinkedIn, which organizes the 6th annual Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. “With more than 600 entries across more than 100 categories, the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards program is highly competitive. All winners reflect the very best in innovation and excellence in tackling today’s urgent cybersecurity challenges.”

Industry-leading innovation

This latest award win serves as further validation of Protegrity’s mission to protect the world’s most sensitive data, wherever it resides. With more than two decades of industry-leading innovation, Protegrity protects the sensitive data of more than two billion individuals across global enterprises—allowing businesses to tap into the value of secure data without jeopardizing privacy.

This award also is the beginning of a global awakening of the importance of Protegrity within the three fastest growing markets in technology: cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and cloud. For decades, network, firewall access, threat detection, and coarse-grain application protection were the major sources of cybersecurity investment by companies large and small. Today, with on-premise, multicloud, and multiple SaaS applications as the norm, fine-grain data-security and privacy protection are table stakes for companies of all sizes. This is the new imperative to compete in the today’s world of analytics. Coupled with the wake-up call that the SolarWinds Hack provided, there has developed a perfect storm for this new mandate: PROTECT YOUR ACTUAL DATA.

Global leaders in financial services, banking, credit, insurance, healthcare, retail, and government already trust Protegrity to secure their most sensitive data. And why shouldn’t they—we’re a gold award winner.
