Forcepoint named best ‘Cybersecurity Solution’ for its human-centric security by NetworkWorld Asia
At the dawn of the fourth industrial revolution, as organisations start to embrace digital transformation from cloud to mobility, one of the key focus areas for IT leaders has been to ensure that their cybersecurity strategy is enabling business without inhibiting end-user productivity and lowering risk.
However, the current security model of point products is proving to be ineffective against today’s sophisticated attacks. This is where Forcepoint is bringing about a paradigm shift in to evolve a new approach to security challenges by introducing human-centric security delivered through Risk-Adaptive Protection. And based on the latest NetworkWorld Asia Information Management Awards, CIOs seem to agree.
NetworkWorld Asia (NWA) recognised Forcepoint as the best ‘Cybersecurity Solution’ at the NWA Information Management Awards announced at the June 6th awards gala in Singapore.
Here’s what NWA had to say for Forcepoint winning the top security award:
“Forcepoint wins with its human-centric approach to cybersecurity as humans are usually the weakest link in security. Cybersecurity needs to be adaptive to the ever-evolving threat landscape and to human behavior in using technology and data. It needs to take into account on-premise and cloud infrastructure, information residing and in transit everywhere, and people and devices accessing corporate network, applications and data from anywhere. In short, a great cybersecurity solution must sense risks/threats anywhere our people and data could be, and protect them everywhere, every time.”
In addition, Forcepoint, a global cybersecurity leader, received finalist recognition for:
- Most Promising User & Entity Behavior Analytics Solution for Forcepoint UEBA
- Best Cloud Access Security Broker for Forcepoint CASB
- Best Cloud Security Solution for Forcepoint Web and Email Security
In its 7th year, Asia’s most prestigious honour in information security, the NWA Information Management Awards, recognises Asia's leaders in Information Security, Storage and Data Management for the huge advances made in these fields over the last few years. This is the only regional Editors’ and CIOs’ Choice Awards program for this maturing market, backed by leading Asian publications and portals – NetworkWorld Asia, Networks Asia, Security Asia, Storage Asia and Asia Cloud Forum.
