This week, WatchGuard won three honors in the 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards program, continuing its impressing streak of industry recognition this year. Most notably, WatchGuard AuthPoint was recognized as the Gold Winner in the Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) category. See below for a full list of awards WatchGuard earned this year:
- Gold Winner for Multi-Factor Authentication: AuthPoint
- Silver Winner for Network Security: Firebox M270
- Silver Winner for Best Cybersecurity Company (between 500 to 999 employees): WatchGuard Technologies
Each year, the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards program recognizes products, professionals and companies that exhibit innovation, excellence and noteworthy leadership in the information security space. They are selected by popular vote from members of the information security community and based on the strength of their nominations.
WatchGuard AuthPoint was recognized for answering the call for MFA that’s designed specifically to suit the needs of SMBs, where traditionally complex integrations and burdensome on-premises management make it impossible to implement without a large IT staff and considerable up-front expense. By contrast, AuthPoint is a cloud service, so there’s no pricey hardware to deploy, and it can be managed from anywhere using the intuitive WatchGuard Cloud interface.
