SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Elite cybersecurity companies from around the world met in San Francisco to honor the industry's premier leaders at the 13th annual 2017 Global Excellence Awards, hosted by Info Security Products Guide. While global tech brands were nominated and competed for recognition in a variety of categories, one of the most prestigious honors went to 802 Secure President, Garry Drummond who was named CEO of the Year.
802 Secure received four other awards (in gold, silver and bronze categories) that brought recognition to their leading product, P25CleanRF. This product was a Gold Winner for NERC / FERC CIP Compliance, a highlight for 802 Secure's team, who are also developing additional product features for protecting nuclear and critical infrastructure from radio frequency cyber-attacks. P25CleanRF has been of interest to Law Enforcement agencies for use in protecting mission critical communications between First Responders dispatchers, incident commanders, safety officers and other emergency response agencies, including fire and police.
Garry Drummond, CEO, is thrilled at the response from the market,
"I am thankful to my team for their hard work and dedication as we lead this product into global markets. The P25CleanRF was awarded as one of the 2017 Security Products and Solutions for Government – and that doesn't come easy. We have traction with State and Local Government, as well as Federal Agencies because our solutions provide visibility into invisible radio frequency attack vectors, like jamming."
Over 50 judges were present from various backgrounds and industries where each nominee and finalist was scored based on 12-month performance. While scoring is based on a variety of factors that include technical benefits to the market, finalists are selected and awarded based on achievements beyond the industry norm (true excellence).
802 Secure develops signal intelligent technology for securing the Internet of Things (IoT) by using software defined radios and big data analytics to detect and assess wireless risks across the broader RF spectrum. The Silicon Valley based company is best known for developing two leading, world-class technologies, cloud-based AirShieldSM and P25CleanRFSM – proactive 24x7 cybersecurity monitoring of First Responder P25 Controlled Radio Networks.
