Marble Security’s Marble Access Named SC Magazine 2013 Reader Trust Best Mobile/Portable Device Award Finalist

January 31, 2013

SUNNYVALE, Calif. –  SC Magazine has named Marble Security a Finalist for the security industry’s most prestigious awards – the 2013 Reader Trust Awards.  Marble Access is a Finalist in the Best Mobile/Portable Device Security category.  The company has won three first-place awards and this marks the sixth consecutive year Marble Security/IronKey has been honored as a Finalist by SC Magazine readers.  In 2012 Marble Access won the Reader Trust Best Fraud Prevention Solution Award.

Marble Security changed its name from IronKey in October 2012.  The IronKey brand is now wholly owned by Imation Corp., who in 2011 acquired the IronKey™ secure flash drive hardware business.

“We are honored to have been selected as a Finalist for this year’s SC Awards,” said Dave Jevans CTO and founder of Marble Security.  “With malware and phishing continually on the rise, especially for mobile devices, Marble Access is needed now more than ever to protect mobile workers, whether they are in the office behind the corporate firewall or working in the field.”

Marble Access is a secure multi-layer environment for accessing the Web and cloud services on mobile devices including Android smartphones and tablets, iPads, iPhones, Macs and Windows PCs.  Designed for enterprises and government organizations, the Marble Security service includes patented, adaptive protection and context-aware controls to identify and eliminate risks to corporate data, networks and applications.    It specifically protects against unknown threats such as zero-day attacks from Trojans, keyloggers, man-in-the-middle, man-in-the-browser, malevolent Wi-Fi networks and DNS poisoning.  The Marble Security platform reduces the risks of data breaches, online fraud and cyber attacks.

For the Reader Trust Award category honor, Marble Access was selected from hundreds of entries submitted across 34 technology categories.  Winners will be selected by a panel representing a cross-section of SC Magazine readership comprised of large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets, including financial services, healthcare, government, retail, education and other sectors.

“The Reader Trust Award, perhaps more than any other category, celebrates the solutions that are the most effective in helping IT professionals and their companies address the network security problems that plague organizations on a daily basis,” said Illena Armstrong, vice president and editorial director of SC Magazine.  “The SC Awards have become the standard measurement of excellence throughout the information security industry and we look forward to recognizing the tireless efforts of the men and women that our readers see as stand-outs.”

Winners of this year’s SC Awards U.S. will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in San Francisco on Tuesday, Feb. 26, 2013.  The event is a night filled with excitement, along with an invaluable opportunity to network with the top corporate IT professionals in attendance.  To attend the awards, please register at http://bit.ly/11KELTy.
