Censornet has been shortlisted in the ‘Cloud Security Product of the Year – SME’ category for the 2020 Computing Cloud Excellence Awards. Following the company’s success in the ‘SME Security Solution’ category at last year’s Computing Security Excellence Awards, this nomination bolsters Censornet’s reputation as the go-to, all-in-one security platform for SMEs.

Censornet has been recognised for its consolidated cloud security platform which integrates email security, web security, CASB and MFA, and enables organisations to protect the major attack surface through a single pane of glass. Crucially, the platform is cost-effective and ‘born in the cloud’ so it can simultaneously enable better protection, flexible deployment and easier management.

Beyond this, the addition of the Autonomous Security Engine (ASE) to the platform enables these 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 a result, resource-strained SMEs can benefit from top enterprise-class threat intelligence without purchasing and navigating a multitude of siloed point products.

Ed Macnair, CEO of Censornet, said: “We are delighted to build on our awards successes over the past year with this nomination. SMEs are facing an array of challenges at the moment and the Censornet team are dedicated to providing them with the support and appropriate technologies they require to survive.

“Solving our customers’ pain points underpins everything that we do and we believe that rather than overwhelming them with solutions, decisions and threat data, security teams need less complexity, rather than more. We are incredibly proud of our platform, which cuts through to the point and provides security professionals with the practical tools they need to keep their business secure.”

To keep pace with an ever-changing threat landscape, Censornet consistently strives to further improve the platform with new technologies. As organisations increasingly move to the cloud to facilitate faster collaboration and communication, Censornet has created an all-encompassing solution, Defence365, to help small businesses safely navigate their migration to the cloud and deliver a truly secure Office 365 environment. Most importantly, it provides consistent governance for all employees, whether they are in the office or working remotely. As a result, it elevates security levels, whilst reducing complexity and management overheads.

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.

The winners will be announced during a virtual ceremony on Thursday 5th November.
