Infosecurity Europe is a hugely important event in the cybersecurity calendar, it’s where the world comes to do business for a few days, and it is great that we have the exposure provided by this award so that others can find out about what we’re doing and the problem that we’re solving for enterprises around the globe. Awards are really important for us—and we’ve been the winner of some fantastic awards so far. They show that there is credibility in what we’re doing and interest from the wider community, and they also help us win new customers and meet new people, something which is very important to our business.”
