Posted on December 17, 2020 | Cybersecurity

Secure ICAP Gateway and Managed File Transfer recognized as the best, most innovative, comprehensive, and widely adopted enterprise-grade security solution on the market

London, UK– December 17th, 2020 - Fortra today announced that it has won the Enterprise Security Solution award, at Computing’s prestigious annual Security Excellence Awards. Fortra is a leading global data security company providing an integrated data security suite that protects data, enforces controls, and manages data distribution securely.

The awards celebrate the achievements of the IT industry's leading security companies, solutions, products, and personalities and recognises Fortra’ Secure ICAP Gateway and Managed File Transfer solution as being innovative, comprehensive, and the most widely adopted enterprise-grade security solution on the market.

The Secure ICAP Gateway and Managed File Transfer solution is the first combination of its kind to give file transfers an unprecedented level of security and oversight from start to finish. It streamlines, secures, and automates the exchange of data between systems, customers, and partners.

Computing’s editorial director, Stuart Sumner, announced the award win stating that enterprise-scale firms face uncountable attacks every day; and no IT team can hope to catch them all manually. Therefore they were looking for a data security provider whose product was on the “bleeding edge of enterprise security requirements”, covering every base of security need within the enterprise. Fortra’ Secure ICAP Gateway and Managed File Transfer stood apart from the competition by properly addressing the major issues of compliance and data security, which are particularly pertinent today given file sharing is so widely used.

With enterprise businesses facing hundreds if not thousands of data security threats every day, Fortra’ integrated data security capabilities deliver unrivalled data classification, compliance and automation, data loss prevention and secure file sharing ensuring the most comprehensive integrated data security suite on the market.

Kate Bolseth, CEO, Fortra, said, “We’re thrilled to accept this prestigious award and recognition from industry for the best-in-class data security and compliance capability of our data security product suite.”

She continued, “Our mission in 2021 is to continue to delight customers with our comprehensive suite of offerings; delivering robust, solutions and support for every aspect of enterprise data security, compliance, and management.”

This accolade comes hot on the heels of Fortra being shortlisted as a finalist at Cyber Defense’s annual ‘Black Unicorn Awards’, the most exclusive awards in the cyber security industry that recognise global cyber security leaders, with the potential to reach a $1 billion dollar market valuation.
