London – September 2016 – In recognition of delivering market-leading, cloud-based data security services that are helping organisations proactively protect information throughout its lifecycle, Egress Software Technologies has been shortlisted for ‘Cloud Innovation Provider of the Year’ at the prestigious 2016 UK IT Industry Awards.
The UK IT Industry Awards provide the benchmark for outstanding performance throughout the UK technology industry, focusing on the contribution of organisations and solutions that have excelled in the use, development and deployment of IT in the past 12 months. Specifically, ‘Cloud Innovation Provider of the Year’ recognises products or services that have delivered measurable benefit to end-users in organisations through public and private cloud offerings.
Speaking about today’s announcement, Paul Fletcher, Group CEO at BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, says: “Congratulations to all the finalists in the 2016 UK IT Industry Awards – their talents should be truly celebrated. BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, is here to make IT good for society and the Awards are a major part of this. They showcase not only the innovation and the professionalism of those working in IT, but also demonstrate the importance of IT in delivering economic and social benefit.”
Stuart Sumner, Editor of Computing, adds: “I would like to congratulate the finalists. The UK IT Industry Awards are rigorously judged by a panel of peers and experts, and to be announced as a finalist really is a great achievement.”
Commenting on the shortlisting, Egress CEO Tony Pepper states: “We are delighted to be named as finalist at this year’s UK IT Industry Awards. To be shortlisted for this award having previously won both in this category and for ‘Security Innovation of the Year’ represents a fantastic endorsement of the Egress approach to data security and the value our customers derive from our services.
“As the last 12 months have demonstrated, the data security and cybersecurity threat posed to organisations is greater now than ever before, with the financial and reputational repercussions of a data breach a concern at the highest levels. Working with our customers and the wider security community, we believe we have built a platform that recognises that personal and commercially sensitive data needs the appropriate levels of protection and care applied to it from the point of creation, to sharing it internally and externally. Only by taking a holistic, proactive approach to data security can organisations look to build genuine information assurance and mitigate the risk of a major breach.”
The UK IT Industry Awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday 16th November 2016 at the Battersea Park Events Arena, London.
