Tel Aviv, IL, November 21, 2016 – HexaTier, provider of a comprehensive security and compliance solution for databases and Database as a Service (DBaaS) platforms, today announced that their Unified Database Security and Compliance Solution has been named a finalist in the SC Awards 2017 for exemplary professional leadership in cybersecurity. HexaTier was acknowledged as Best Database Security Solution in the Professional Award category of the SC Awards. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards 2017 ceremony to be held February 14, 2017 in San Francisco.

“Ransomware, nation-state cyber attacks, IoT vulnerabilities, data privacy issues and more are dominating the headlines right now and it’s critical that we amplify the importance of these problems and highlight the actions organizations can take to safeguard their organizations and their critical data assets,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “As bad actors are constantly changing strategy, so too are the men, women and companies endeavoring to stop them in their tracks. These finalists have shown that they are the best at what they do.”

The SC Awards, now in its 20th year, are recognized throughout the industry as the gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity professionals, products and services. Winners in the Professional Award category are selected by an expert panel of judges and recognize the most talented cybersecurity professionals from end-user companies. Judges conducted in-depth analysis and considered many factors – such as applicable research, analyst reports and/or product reviews – to narrow down the field of hundreds of submissions to just the top finalists.

“We are very proud to be acknowledged by SC Magazine for our unified database security and compliance solution,” said Dror Haliva, VP Marketing, HexaTier. “As enterprises embrace the move to the cloud, this accomplishment further validates our rebranding approach and reinforces our dedication to securing databases across multiple platforms, whether cloud-hosted, Database as a Service or on-premise.”

“It’s an honor to be recognized as a finalist for the Best Database Security Solution by SC Magazine. As the cloud adoption rate has risen over the past year to almost 70%, cloud security remains a top concern for IT professionals worldwide. Organizations that fail to put in place a database security plan, on or off the cloud, remain at imminent risk of a breach and the financial, reputational, and legal consequences that will result. This award reflects our commitment to facing this challenge head-on and ensuring the security and privacy of data is safe, regardless of where it resides,” said Dan Dinnar, CEO, HexaTier.”

“Protecting sensitive information and private data from ambitious cyber attackers can be a great challenge,” added Armstrong of SC Media. “HexaTier has been named a finalist for the SC Award Professional Award for raising the bar within the industry and successfully meeting this challenge.”
