DALLAS, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- At a gala dinner that drew hundreds of government officials and industry executives to the Washington Convention Center on Nov. 29, Government Security News (GSN) magazine announced the winners — including Entrust — in 42 different categories in its fourth annual Homeland Security Awards competition.
GSN recognized Entrust as a winner in the "Best Certificate Management Solution" category. All winners were honored at a festive banquet hosted by GSN in a ballroom at the Washington, D.C. Convention Center.
"Managed or hosted certificate solutions are increasingly at the foundation of identity-based security infrastructures around the globe," said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "Entrust takes the complexity out of managing certificates so customers can focus on deploying core security applications for mobility and physical and logical access. We're honored to receive this award and be recognized by GSN for our investment in the intellectual property incorporated into our certificate management solutions."
One of the highlights of the dinner was the presentation of the GSN / Raytheon Award for Distinguished Leadership and Innovation in Public Safety and Security to Richard Reed, deputy assistant to the president for homeland security. Reed delivered an insightful keynote address to an audience of industry executives and government officials at the federal, state and local levels.
The winners were selected by a panel of objective judges, according to Jacob Goodwin, editor-in-chief of Government Security News.
"We received an outstanding group of entries and have handed winners' plaques to an exceptional group of companies and government agencies," said Goodwin.
