We’re delighted to announce that idenprotect has won ‘Highly Commended’ status in the ‘Best Authentication Technology’ category at the prestigious SC Awards Europe 2020.
Chosen from a final shortlist of six companies, idenprotect was hailed by the judges as a “potential disruptor” and “really exciting solution” that “seems to be taking a good leap forward using PKI technology”. They added, “Finally a password-free solution, which still protects and provides cost savings.”
The SC Awards Europe are held annually to reward outstanding contributions made by companies and professionals in the cybersecurity industry. Judged by senior information security professionals from major global brands and government departments, the SC Awards recognise trailblazers and innovators who are successfully defending customers against evolving threats and attack methods. In choosing the winners, the judges looked at factors such as product line strength, innovation, customer service/support, research and development, and company growth.
CEO of idenprotect Craig McDermott said,
“Securing the Highly Commended status at the SC Awards is a significant achievement for idenprotect. We’ve been pioneering password-free security and zero-trust MFA/SSO for a few years now and it’s fantastic that we’re now being recognised across the industry. I’d like to thank all of our brilliant customers and also my super team for their continued hard work and support. I’m very proud of what the team has achieved to date—and there’s more to come soon!”
idenprotect is fast-becoming the new right way to access computers and corporate applications in the modern world. The solution replaces vulnerable and old-fashioned passwords with a private key uniquely stored in the secure chip in a user’s smart device, inaccessible to hackers or malware. This eases administrative frustrations by enabling users to authenticate with their face or fingerprint and sign in only once. With idenprotect, organisations enjoy increased productivity, reduced costs and much stronger security than password-based solutions are capable of delivering.
