Cloud Security Awards categories

All-new categories

An overview of cybersecurity awards categories follows below. Winners will be selected internationally, including the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia. As a Cloud Awards partner, the Cloud Security Awards strives to represent security solutions from across the globe: not only is equal weighting given to all countries, but individual awards across any category may be split into more than one award depending on the strength of submissions from different regions.

Half of all development and coding jobs lie outside the tech industry. The Cloud Security Awards aims to be the de facto cloud security awards program by recognizing and celebrating success and innovation in every key business vertical. If your sector is not represented in the list of security awards categories, please contact us and we will determine whether to include your industry sector in the next awards cycle.

This category takes into consideration all the measures to identify and manage security opportunities and dangers, which arise from business actions that can have both a negative and a positive effect on the success of the company. The objective of risk management is not to eliminate all risks; that is practically impossible. Rather, the idea is to strike an optimal balance between opportunities and risks.

This category includes a variety of topics related to data and information defense primarily, but not limited to, a professional corporate environment. To excel in this category, candidates must show ongoing involvement and dedicated staff to run and keep them up-to-date and compliant with the latest policies. This can be demonstrated through testimonials.

The candidates of this category must show how their solution helps protect from most viruses, and other unwanted invaders that may infect devices. We expect to see cutting-edge solutions for this category, as an antivirus is the first line of defense to protect the internal network – crucial for any business.

If you need to protect your IP address or even what you search or visit on the Internet, a VPN can become the ideal tool, especially when connecting from, for example, a public Wi-Fi network, where anyone could have access to the navigation and personal data. A good solution should demonstrate features, such as hide the IP address, encrypt data, encapsulate internet traffic usage, etc.

A firewall represents the first line of defense because it can prevent a malicious program or attacker from accessing your network and information before any potential damage is done. Proxy, UTM, NGFW, Stateful Inspection firewalls, among others, are expected to enter this category.

This refers to desktop virtualization services that include applications in the cloud. There are numerous strategies for this category, however they are frequently combined to enhance user experience and streamline management.

A truly innovative solution should make users be able to access several services and resources by just logging in once and using a single set of credentials in a streamlined and future-proof way.

Web security consists of each action or tool adopted to prevent information from being exposed or prone to attack by cybercriminals. Those measures also serve to protect users, such as ecommerce customers and blog readers, and even the host. This category is seeking solutions that allows users to monitor web usage, even for on-premises gateways.

This entails, among other things, looking at components using their binary fingerprints, using expertly curated and proprietary research, comparing precise scans to that private intelligence, and showing developers this intelligence from inside their preferred tools.

Security is a major problem for SaaS companies due to the constantly changing needs and specifications that must be met for SaaS in any industry sector or as a separate security concern. Any SaaS solution in this category needs to take an inventive approach to security.

End-user devices, data center resources, networking infrastructure, and cloud resources are examples of the hardware and software assets that are often included in this.

Since COVID-19, the banking and finance sectors have offered an increasing level of services online, and banking security has never been more crucial. Ransomware attacks, the rise of contactless payments, mobile malware attacks, and even data breaches of significant banking and finance apps are some of the dangers for which applicants in this category should offer security solutions.

This category contains rules and procedures put in place to guard against and keep an eye on unlawful usage of a computer network and its available resources. The Network Security category focuses on various public and private computer networks that are utilized in daily tasks and facilitate transactions and interactions between businesses, governmental organizations, and people. There are networks that are private, like those inside of businesses, and others that are public. Organizations, companies, and other forms of institutions all use network security.

If you are a cybersecurity expert, you will understand that scanning for vulnerabilities is one of the most effective ways to prevent a data breach. This category is aimed at applicants who identify security flaws in a system or software. We seek the tools needed to identify all vulnerabilities in a system. Successful solutions should not only detect weaknesses but seek to remediate and alter procedures, ensuring vulnerabilities are prioritized and addressed after they’ve been discovered. Assessment solutions should evaluate numerous solutions to determine the best course of action to take. Testimonials and case studies are expected in order to reflect the success of the solution.

This category will look at data extractions from electronic evidence, translations to operationally useful information, and the presentation of the data. This includes identifying, recording, analyzing and finally documenting digital evidence. The judges will seek to identify the best digital forensics solutions: this will encompass solutions which assist with the identification of, and presentation of evidence to identify criminal activity, but applications are not limited to this area.

This category encompasses a wide range of occupations, from common call center agents to engineers with extensive technical understanding. The solution should respond to issues as they occur, taking the required steps to restore service and return the firm to normalcy as quickly as feasible. We anticipate that candidates will be responsible for providing computer system support, including incident response.
