Information Security announces IT Readers' Choice awards

Published 5 April 2007

Joint project with recognizes forty-five industry leaders of today and tomorrow

It is not exactly the Miss America pageant — otherwise we would have tried to attend — but the winners of Information Security magazine and’s jointly-produced Readers’ Choice Awards have something to smile about. More than 1,500 information security executives evaluated 340 IT products in fifteen distinct categories, and so it is fair to say that the forty-five selected for recognition are deserving of it. (To be eligible for award consideration, a product had to attain at least 25 percent of the number of responses garnered by the top vote receiver within its category.)
