Minneapolis — Apr 17, 2018 

Code42, a leading provider of information security solutions, announced that it won the 2018 Fortress Cyber Security Award in the Threat Detection category. The awards program, run by the Business Intelligence Group, seeks to identify and reward the world’s leading companies and products that are working to keep data and electronic assets safe among a growing threat from hackers.

"In today’s competitive marketplace, ideas matter. Our mission at Code42 is to safeguard every idea, whether it is stored on endpoints or in the cloud," said Joe Payne, president and chief executive officer of Code42. "To have our work recognized along with other industry leaders is an honor."

Security, IT and compliance teams can use Code42’s information security solution to automatically collect and analyze all file activity and events across every endpoint–even when endpoints are offline. Based on near real-time alerts, they can see where files move and reside, making it quicker to detect, investigate and recover from cyberattacks, such as insider threats, file exfiltration and ransomware.

"We are proud to name Code42 a winner in our inaugural Fortress Cyber Security Awards program," said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer of Business Intelligence Group. "It was clear to our expert judges that the entire group of 35 innovators are at the top of their game, helping defend from and respond to the growing threat of cyberattacks."
