London, 14 November 2012
8MAN, the flagship solution from protected-networks has been formally recognised as one of the year’s best new IT Security Products at the Computing Security Awards 2012, winning runner-up ‘New Product of the Year’. The Awards are in their third year and recognise the products, services and companies that have been most impressive at protecting organisations from IT security threats.
The ceremony for the 2012 Computing Security Awards took place on 8th November at the Grand Connaught Rooms in London. Over twenty awards were presented with the majority of winners in each category decided by a popular vote submitted via the Awards website. The list of winners and runner-ups in all categories is available at the Computing Security Awards website.
8MAN allow organisations using fileservers, Active Directory and SharePoint to easily view, manage, provision and delegate access rights. This in turn allows organisations to trust not only the integrity, security and confidentiality of their business information but also the people who access that information.
"Winning this Award is a great endorsement for 8MAN. This recognition reinforces 8MAN’s demonstrated ability to save costs and time while streamlining access rights. Organisations grappling with mounting sensitive data can rely on 8MAN to ensure its security,” commented Steven Bennett, Head of Channel EMEA protected-networks.
protected-networks launched its UK operation in early 2011 and has since seen consistent growth in the region. The company’s buoyant growth plans are supported by five active reseller partners, senior leadership team and a robust customer pipeline in the UK.
Last week the company participated in the 2012 Identity Management Event alongside partner Guardian Technologies. Key industry leaders and decision-makers across the public sector, banking, finance, insurance and all other major businesses were present at the show to discuss some of the key trends defining access rights and identity management policies. In December, protected-networks will be exhibiting at the Ovum Identity Access Management Event.

I’m dating myself, but I remember when holiday shopping involved pouring through ads in the Sunday paper, placing actual phone calls from tethered land lines to research product stock and availability, and actually driving places to pick things up. Now, holiday shoppers can do all of that from a smartphone or tablet in a few seconds, but there are some security pitfalls to be aware of.
