We are delighted to announce that Proofpoint has won the Readers’ Choice Award for Best in Web & Email Security at the 2nd CybersecAsia Awards.

This year’s CybersecAsia Readers’ Choice Awards saw 46 cybersecurity solution and service providers submitting 105 nominations in 18 main categories. The votes were restricted to end-user organisations in the region who could give their nods to two vendors in each category, and the nominees with the highest vote count in each category emerged the winner.

Maiwand Youssofzay, Country Manager - South Asia & Korea at Proofpoint commented: “Email continues to be the number threat vector and with 85% of breaches involving a human element, organisations need to put employees at the centre of their cybersecurity strategy. We’re honoured to be recognised with the Best Vendor Excellence Award for web and email security as it underscores our absolute commitment to people-centric security innovation, and the hard-won trust we’ve gained within the industry.”

Victor Ng, Editor-in-Chief of CybersecAsia, observed: “The 2021 CybersecAsia Readers’ Choice Awards marks another inflection point for the region, as government bodies, solution providers and end-user organisations collaborate to mitigate the risks brought about by increasingly sophisticated cyber-threats, financially motivated cybercriminals, state-sponsored bad actors, and intentional or unintentional internal threats. It’s our privilege and honour to organize this prestigious annual Awards programme, now in its second iteration, to showcase the innovations and technologies Asia Pacific’s cybersecurity leaders have developed to mitigate these threats.”

Thought leaders from among some of the award winners will join Ng in a first-of-its-kind virtual fireside chat on 1st December 2021 for a look back at the key cybersecurity incidents and developments in the past year, as well as share their predictions about the cyber-threat landscape as we usher in 2022 and provide some perspectives on how organisations in the region should prepare themselves to mitigate the likely risks.
