INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rook Security, a provider of global IT security solutions protecting sensitive data against dynamic, emerging threats, is proud to announce it has earned two awards in the Info Security Products Guide’s 2015 Global Excellence Awards competition. Rook Security’s SECOPS program took home the Gold for “Best Managed Security Services” and the Silver for “Fastest-Growing Company of the Year.” The 2015 Global Excellence Awards winners were announced at a gala dinner in San Francisco on April 20.
According to Verizon’s 2015 Data Breach Investigation Report, the forecasted average loss for a breach of 1,000 records can cost anywhere from $52,000 to $87,000. With common news headlines reporting lost company records in the millions, cybersecurity expertise is at a premium, though many organizations lack the funding to hire in-house talent. The lack of such talent has also been well documented. An estimated 1 million information security staff and managers are needed to fill global demand, according to Cisco’s 2014 Annual Security Report. To that end, organizations are turning to managed security service companies to address their information security challenges.
“It comes as no surprise to information security professionals that technological and process innovation are vital tools against the constant barrage of cyber threats,” said J.J. Thompson, CEO, Rook Security. “That being said, proper execution is no small task. With the addition of tactical security engineering joined with threat and vulnerability management to our managed security service offering, SECOPS provides a new service model that focuses as much on organizational processes as it does technology. Paired with our tremendous growth, our recent accolades from the Global Excellence Awards program reaffirm the direction we are taking with our business.”
Rook Security’s latest honor follows a recent line of industry and business accolades. In 2015, Rook Security was named “The Hot Company in Managed Security Service Providers” by the Cyber Defense Awards, and was recognized for its bold approach to outsourced security services in 2014 by the Golden Bridge Awards program as the “Most Innovative Managed Security Service.”
In 2014, Rook Security earned a coveted spot on the renowned Inc. 500 list after achieving 942.3 percent revenue growth between 2010 and 2013. In addition to achieving a spot on the Inc. 500 list, making it the No. 9 fastest growing privately held security company in the United States.
