Why are our Awards So Important?

This will be our eighth year of delivering these awards for the most innovative and valuable cyber defense companies from around the globe.  We’ve been a major media sponsor of the RSA Conference for years in the USA and are expanding throughout Europe and Asia as we deliver between 60 to 100 pages of a high quality, color, digital edition magazine to thousands of attendees at the biggest InfoSec conference in the world, in these key locations.  There is prestige associated for winners of these awards.

Winning an InfoSec Award helps with media coverage, sales, marketing, investment and credibility to rise above the noise.  With over 3,000 cyber defense companies around the globe boasting the best executives, team, products or services, we help you get above the noise of this large group – we only select a small number in select categories.  It will be your opportunity to shine in the spotlight throughout year end of 2019 and beyond.  We have the following growing INFOSEC and IT readership (many are cyber defense product and service buyers) professionals audience:

While our Judges will decide (based upon follow up information we’ll request from you) if you will be a finalist and possibly a winner for your category, these include various possible awards per category. They are “BEST”, “HOTTEST”, “EDITOR’S CHOICE”, “MOST INNOVATIVE” and “NEXT GENERATION”. If you already believe your product deserves one of these four award types in your category, simply make note of that in your communications with our team.  We’ll then follow-up with you, shortly, to collect more information about your company, products and/or services.

About the Judging

The judges are CISSP, FMDHS, CEH, certified security professionals who will be voting based on their independent review of the Company materials on the website of each submission including but not limited to data sheets, white papers, product literature and other market variables. CDM has a flexible philosophy to find more innovative players with great executives, new and unique technologies, than the one with the most customers or money in the bank. CDM is always asking “What’s Next?” so we are looking for Next Generation Cyber Defense Products and Services. Announcements will be made for all our winners in our press release, at the RSA Conference expo and on our website on February 25, 2020.
