SUNNYVALE, Calif. — Dec. 14, 2015 — Illumio today announced it has been named a finalist in the SC Awards 2016 for outstanding innovation and achievement in information security. The Illumio Adaptive Security Platform (ASP)™ is recognized in the Best Cloud Computing Security Solution category, which acknowledges companies with superior security solutions that help customers more effectively protect data and applications in a cloud environment. Finalists are chosen by a distinguished group of leading IT security professionals from the SC Magazine readership and selected by the SC editorial team. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards 2016 ceremony to be held March 1, 2016, in San Francisco.
“From Duqu 2.0 to mobile cyberthreats to the nearly $1 billion stolen from financial institutions by the Carbanak cybercriminal group, 2015 saw near-exponential growth in the number and complexity of cyberattacks,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, Editorial, SC Magazine. “As the bad guys shift and pivot strategies, so too do the men, women and companies working to stop them in their tracks. These finalists have shown that they are the best at what they do.”
The SC Awards, now in their 19th year, are recognized throughout the security industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity. With the awards, SC Magazine recognizes the achievements of security professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. Vendors and service providers that offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the SC Awards’ Trust Award category.

We’re honored to receive the security industry’s top recognition.”
