9th Annual Global InfoSec Awards Announced by Cyber Defense Magazine at RSA Conference 2021

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA. (May 19, 2021)

Egnyte, the unified content security, compliance, and collaboration solution for multicloud businesses, today announced it has been recognized as a leader for “Next-Gen Data Security” and “Most Innovation in Data Governance” by Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine.

In their ninth edition, CDM’s 2021 InfoSec Awards highlight innovative companies that showcase new technologies and unique capabilities that meet today’s security challenges and address evolving challenges in cybersecurity.

“With digital content accumulating daily across disparate environments, it’s incumbent upon organizations to understand where that content is located, how it’s being accessed and used, and what security policies are in place to protect it,” said Kris Lahiri, Co-Founder and Chief Security Officer at Egnyte. “Egnyte offers a simple, turnkey solution that discovers, classifies, secures and governs organizations’ content from any device, any location, anywhere. We’re honored to be recognized by CDM for these prestigious awards ”

Egnyte launched its unified platform for content governance, privacy, compliance, and collaboration in February 2020. Since then, the company has added enhancements that include: machine learning for zero-day ransomware detection, smart caching, file analytics, and content discovery across on-premises and cloud environments. Egnyte also recently announced expanded integrations with Microsoft 365 (M365) and Predictive Risk Scoring that allows users to quickly quantify risk and safeguard sensitive content, in real-time.

“We searched globally for companies and technologies that were evolving their offerings to match today’s current, and future, security challenges. Egnyte is worthy of these prestigious awards and it deserves strong consideration for deployment in your environment,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
