Censornet has been highly commended in the ‘Cloud Security Product of the Year – SME’ category for the 2020 Computing Cloud Excellence Awards. Following a string of award wins and nominations over the past year, this result strengthens Censornet’s position as the go-to, all-in-one security platform for SMEs.
Censornet has received this recognition for its Cloud Security Platform, which integrates Email Security, Web Security, Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA). The platform adapts to how modern organisations function by allowing security teams to efficiently and effectively manage core security defences through a single pane of glass, while giving users the freedom to access the applications and data they need, regardless of device or location. Crucially, the platform is cost-effective and ‘born in the cloud’ so it can simultaneously enable better protection, flexible deployment and easier management.
To keep pace with an ever-changing threat landscape, Censornet is always striving to further improve the platform with new technologies. Censornet created the Autonomous Security Engine (ASE) to enable traditionally siloed services to share security context, state data and events while leveraging world-class threat intelligence to provide 24/7 protection 365 days a year. As organisations increasingly move to the cloud to facilitate faster collaboration and communication, Censornet has added Defence 365 to help small businesses deliver a truly secure Office 365 environment.
Ed Macnair, CEO of Censornet, said: “Given the many hurdles that SMEs face in the current climate, it is so crucial that they are provided with the support and appropriate technologies they require to thrive. We are thrilled that the team’s hard work and commitment to this goal has been recognised.
“We are incredibly proud of our platform, which offers security professionals at organisations of all sizes the practical tools they need to keep their business secure. In a world overwhelmed with products, we believe in making security simple, robust, and effective to take the pressure off overworked security teams. Rather than overwhelming them with solutions, decisions, and threat data, we provide security teams with automatic protection, and less complexity, not more.”
The Cloud Excellence Awards are run by Computing, one of the UK’s most-read and prestigious technology media outlets. They cover every element of success within the security landscape, from education to email, aiming to highlight the achievements of the IT industry’s leading security companies, solutions, products and personalities.
