MILWAUKEE, WI (April 6, 2016) – PKWARE, a global leader in encryption software, announced Smartcrypt, its enterprise encryption and key management solution, has won the Security Products’ 2016 Platinum Govie Award in Encryption. PKWARE’s Smartcrypt ensures security threats are nullified by eliminating the value of stolen or leaked data from unauthorized users.

Smartcrypt was recognized for its innovative enterprise encryption and key management solution that provides persistent data protection and improve efficiencies, without breaking existing processes. It protects files and information, even if they have been moved outside the organization, while providing visibility and control into where files are used, shared, and stored.

We are honored to be awarded the 2016 Govies Award for our efforts in securing enterprise customers and government entities alike from the rising tide of security threats,” said V. Miller Newton, President and CEO at PKWARE. “Smartcrypt armors data to go beyond various data security and privacy standards and governmental compliance requirements, while eliminating the risks of a data breach. The risks of a data breach include the lasting harm that can damage an agency’s reputation and put American security at risk.

The winners were selected by a panel of judges from the security industry using the following criteria: features, innovation, user friendliness, interoperability, quality, design, market opportunity, impact in the security industry, technical advances and scalability.

The winners were announced in the Security Products’ booth at ISC West Expo on April 6 at Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
