We've got some great news to share! Trustwave recently received the "Network Access Control Solution of the Year" award at the 2013 Computing Security Awards ceremony, held recently at Hotel Russell in London.
Infinigate, one of our distribution partners, nominated us for the honor. More than 6,000 individuals - readers, vendors, distributors, resellers and others - voted for the winners online.
We like to think we won this award because we recognize how important producing a superior NAC product is for organziations.
It's no secret that BYOD is here to stay, and security has become a top priority for businesses implementing these mobile programs. In fact, 451 Research notes that "the combined effects of IT consumerization and the 'bring-your-own-device' trends have driven mobile device security to take over the top slot as the key pain point for security managers in 2012." The 2013 Trustwave Global Security Report echoed these findings and found that the prevalence of mobile malware shot up 400 percent from last year.

Luckily technologies like Trustwave Network Access Control can help. It enables granular control over network access and continuous monitoring of corporate-sanctioned and BYOD endpoints to help prevent malware and other threats that can harm infrastructure and leave organizations vulnerable to attack and data loss.
Thanks to Computing Security for presenting us with this prestigious award, and thank you to Infinigate for nominating us. And, of course, thanks to the readers and others who voted for us!
This award will be in good company. Trustwave Network Access Control also has won the SC Magazine award for Best NAC product in March 2013 and Best NAC product at the SC Congress Canada 2012.
