After being shortlisted in four categories, Censornet has won the ‘SME Security Solution Award’ at the 2019 Computing Security Excellence Awards. The winners were revealed at an awards ceremony at the Marriott Hotel in London. The announcement caps off an excellent year for Censonet, having already received praise in awards run by five other industry bodies.

The Security 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.

SMEs are often appealing targets for cyber criminals because they have fewer resources than large enterprises. This challenge is made worse by the security industry’s solution of adding yet more point products to an already overwhelmed security stack to try and protect businesses – this does not work for SMEs. It is a costly approach that only serves to further shackle an organisation’s already overworked security team with a multitude of threat feeds, user interfaces, alerts and events.

By comparison, Censornet’s consolidated cloud platform integrates email, web, cloud application security (CASB) and multi-factor authentication (MFA) to offer the SME market the solution it needs behind a single pane of glass. It provides comprehensive protection from the most advanced threats but remains simple to use and cost effective for organisations of this size. It is for these reasons that Censornet was named winner of the ‘SME Security Solution Award’.

Ed Macnair, CEO of Censornet, said: “We are always delighted to be recognised for our solutions and winning this award is an outstanding achievement. It marks the end of an extremely successful year for us and provides an excellent opportunity to praise the hard work and dedication of the team.

“Solving our customers’ pain points underpins everything that we do. We believe security teams need less, not more. Less actions to take, decisions to make, threat data and solutions to manage. Our platform does just that, it cuts through to the point and gives security professionals the practical tools they need to protect their business.”
