ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Viewpost today announced it has been named an honoree of a 2016 CSO50 Award from IDG's CSO. This prestigious honor is bestowed upon a select group of organizations that have demonstrated that their security initiatives have created outstanding business value and thought leadership for their companies. Viewpost will accept its award at the CSO50 Conference + Awards held on April 18-20, 2016, at the Wigwam Resort, Litchfield Park, Arizona.
“We’re extremely happy to be named an honoree for the second year in a row,” said Viewpost EVP, Chief Security Officer and General Counsel, Christopher Pierson. “Through their resourcefulness and ingenuity, our Security Team has engineered a product that automates and therefore greatly reduces the time and tasks involved in reviewing information associated with potentially harmful email. I’m proud of our cross-functional team’s ability to create a custom solution that simultaneously helps protect us and empower us to do it quickly and efficiently.”
The Viewpost project, called Real-Time SecOps, was launched in 2015 to provide single-click extraction of the necessary forensic info from suspicious electronic materials to determine threat levels and return immediate data to the SecOps analyst in an easy-to-review format. “Our team has reduced the friction, time, and inefficiency associated with manually reviewing potential cyber threats,” said Viewpost CEO, Max Eliscu. “The ability to envision, design and create novel cybersecurity solutions that solve business needs is an amazing benefit to Viewpost and the broader cybersecurity community.”
"Security professionals know that securing an organization is about much more than mere defense today, it's also about enabling business and driving ROI," said Joan Goodchild, Editor in Chief of CSO. "Our annual CSO50 awards recognize the innovation, creativity and business acumen that goes into creating outstanding security projects. We congratulate each of our winners for their accomplishments in creating projects that not only demonstrate state-of-the-art security, but exemplary value as well."
Viewpost also congratulates the other 49 honorees on their 2016 CSO50 Award. In previous years, the prestigious list of honorees has included Lockheed Martin, Honeywell, Merck, Citi, FedEx, Intel, PayPal, Boeing, Credit Suisse, and Deloitte.
