In presenting the award, Thierry Outrebon, editor, Windows News, France, said, "The obvious choice was ConSentry, with its combination of management and security."
The judging panel, which included press and analyst representatives from more than 30 technology publications and firms, evaluated ConSentry against a strict set of criteria and placed the company’s technology and products ahead of tough competition from four other vendors.
“In today’s world of data breaches and increasing concerns over who is accessing what data, organizations need to put controls in place to ensure that their sensitive data is protected,” said Fran Howarth, principal analyst at Quocirca. “With companies facing increasing regulatory burdens, these controls are no longer a nice-to-have feature but rather a core requirement. The intelligent control offered by ConSentry allows organizations to defend themselves against attack and provides the needed assurance that sensitive resources are not being compromised.”
“Validation from independent industry professionals like those on the NetEvents Awards judging panel is very rewarding,” said Joe Golden, CEO of ConSentry. “We’ve focused on making our visibility and control easy for IT to deploy and operate, and this award recognizes that we have successfully delivered that critical IT operational benefit.”
