Intelligent Hybrid DDoS defence provider shortlisted for an impressive three awards

London, UK- March 2017 – NSFOCUS, the intelligent hybrid DDoS defence provider, has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Public Sector & Utilities Solution of the Year, Security Vendor of the Year, and Security Solution of the Year categories for the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2017 (www.iteawards.com) – the leading pan-European awards for ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators and their vendor and distributor partners. NSFOCUS was selected as a finalist based on its work with the G20 Summit to protect 12,729 key G20 applications — including the Summit’s official website and other critical web pages from DDoS attacks.

“We are honoured to have been shortlisted in several categories for these prestigious awards,” said Jens Andreassen, Chief Operating Officer, NSFOCUS. “DDoS prevention is a critical part to any organisation’s security policy, and we have been helping thousands of organisations for almost two decades. Our technologies and research teams continue to make advancements in DDoS protection, and receive global accolades for our intelligent hybrid approach. Being shortlisted in three categories exemplifies our expertise in combining feature-rich on-premises protection with cloud services, and it is a wonderful testament to our best of breed solutions.”

Now in its 9th year, the European IT & Software Excellence Awards 2017 attracted more than 500 entries. A total of 61 solution providers, 39 ISVs and 51 suppliers from 28 European countries have made the finals. The awards are given for IT solutions that get to the heart of customer issues, delivering better business, a clearer understanding of data, and more efficient and profitable outcomes.

“We have seen an even higher quality of entry this year and believe the finalists truly reflect the strength of Europe’s IT industry,” said John Garratt, Editor of IT Europa and head of the judges’ panel. “The fact that IT can make such a transformation in the business and organisation of so many enterprises, countries and organisations of all sizes is a tribute to the hard work that the industry puts in to effect such changes. In some ways IT transformation has been a well-kept secret and we aim to push out the core message in the coming year about just what the IT industry is capable of doing to a wider audience by highlighting some of the possibilities and potential contained in these awards.”

The award winners will be announced on 30th March 2017 at a gala dinner and presentation ceremony.

The European IT & Software Excellence Awards are the only pan-European awards which recognise the crucial role that ISVs, Solution Providers and Systems Integrators play in the delivery of real world solutions.
