Brisbane cybersecurity company Cryptoloc nabs three awards at the Global InfoSec Awards

May 20, 2021

Cryptoloc has taken out three awards in the coveted Global InfoSec Awards held during RSA Conference 2021, awarded by Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine:

  • Editor’s Choice in Email Security and Management
  • Next-Gen in Encryption
  • Cutting Edge in Self-protecting Data Security

“Cryptoloc is immensely proud to be recognised for our work in relation to data security, managed file transfer and encryption,” said Jamie Wilson, founder and MD of Cryptoloc.

“Unfortunately the prevalence of cyber-attacks, like ransomware and malware is such that for business owners and individuals it’s no longer a matter of if they will be attacked, but when. Subsequently organisations and individuals need to investigate how they can ensure they don’t become a victim should an attack occur.”

Wilson says compromised emails represent the single biggest exposure for businesses and individuals alike, but this risk can be greatly mitigated through the implementation of a secure managed file transfer solution as an alternative to email.

“Solutions that specifically focus on data security like encryption will ensure that in the event of a cyber attack, the hackers can’t get access to the data,” he says.

“This eliminates any potential disruptions to business operations which themselves can cause prolonged downtime, damage to brand reputation and significant costs to the business in the form of lost sales and penalties.

“At Cryptoloc, we have focused on tri encryption, where each and every file is encrypted uniquely and should you have an attack your data is secure and able to recover without the stress of having cyber criminals within your system for months without you knowing.”

Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine, said: “Cryptoloc embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today; providing a cost-effective solution; and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach.”
