MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Code42, the leader in insider risk detection, investigation and response, was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Endpoint Security Management Solution category. The company is being recognized for its insider risk detection, investigation and response solution as part of The 18th Annual American Business Awards®.
The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the awards will be virtually presented to winners during a live event on Wednesday, August 5. Tickets for the virtual event are now on sale.
“Despite the toughest business conditions in memory, American organizations continue to demonstrate their commitment to innovation, creativity and bottom-line results,” said Stevie Awards president Maggie Gallagher. “This year’s Stevie-winning nominations are full of inspiring stories of persistence, ingenuity, resourcefulness and compassion. We celebrate all of their stories and look forward to showcasing them during our virtual awards ceremony on August 5.”
More than 3,600 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year and App of the Year, among others. Code42 was nominated in the Best New Product: Business Technology – Endpoint Security Management Solution category.
“We are honored to be recognized with a Gold Stevie Award for the innovative way we help organizations protect their data from insider threat,” said Joe Payne, Code42’s president and CEO. “Some of the most common technologies used today for employee collaboration unfortunately are also vectors for data exfiltration. Using Code42 to detect the insider risks to data, companies can strike a critical balance between data security and user productivity.”
The Code42 insider risk solution provides a company-wide and segmented view of suspicious file movement, sharing and exfiltration activities. It sorts that activity by file type, user and vector, such as email, Dropbox, iCloud, USB, browser uploads, Slack and others. This information allows security teams to identify unusual data trends, gaps in security awareness and Shadow IT.
More than 230 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners. The Stevie Award judges noted that the Code42 solution is a “great innovation and interesting solution to an age old problem” and “… a great tool to have in any organization and in any industry.”
In addition to being recognized with a Stevie Award, Code42’s insider risk solution has received a number of other industry awards in 2020, including a CyberDefense Magazine InfoSec Award for Best Insider Threat Detection and a Cybersecurity Excellence Gold Award for Best Insider Threat Solution.
