November 9, 2023 - Egress has won the Security Innovation of the Year awards for its adaptive security for cloud email at the 2023 UK IT Industry Awards. 

Earlier this year, Egress became the first cybersecurity organization to apply an adaptive security model to cloud email. By aggregating product telemetry and behavioral data from across each customer’s cybersecurity ecosystem, Egress provides a single, unique view into human risk throughout the organization to enhance visibility and surface new insights.  

By creating a per-user human risk score, Egress provided dynamic detection and response capabilities to defend customers against advanced phishing attacks, human error, and data exfiltration. Egress’ controls and those of third-party products integrated via bi-directional API automatically adjust to reflect real-time changes in risk without administrative overhead.   

Tony Pepper, CEO at Egress, comments: 

“The Security Innovation award is such a great achievement for the entire Egress team, not only because the competition was extraordinarily tough, but because being truly innovative is what we strive for. We're incredibly proud of the launch of our adaptive security architecture for cloud email, the partnerships we're building across the cybersecurity industry, and the value we're delivering for customers. To win at the UK IT Industry Awards is a fantastic endorsement of this work."
