Security Today Announces the Govies Government Security Award Winners for 2018

Dallas, Texas, April 2, 2018 - Security Today magazine, the only integrated product and technology magazine reaching the entire security market and, the preeminent editorial website for the security industry, announced the 2018 winners in The Govies Government Security Awards competition today. The awards honor outstanding government security products in a variety of categories.

1105 Media launched its government security awards program in 2009. In 2011, this successful program became known as The Govies. Participation in the program has been as strong as ever this year as government security continues to be an ongoing concern. Platinum and Gold designations within award categories will be announced during the ISC West Expo, which will be held April 11-13 at Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

1105 Media’s Security Today, and GovSec branded media offer important information to the government security market through a vast portfolio of products. An independent panel of judges from the security industry selected the top entries in the 2017 categories and named them winners using criteria including Features, Innovation, User Friendliness, Interoperability, Quality, Design, Market Opportunity, and Impact in the Security Industry, Technical Advances, and Scalability. The winning entries are:

“The Govies is an amazing product recognition program whereby companies in the security industry can highlight their technology and solutions that work flawlessly within the government vertical,” said Ralph C. Jensen, editor-in-chief of GovSec and Security Today magazines and “The high number of entries we receive each year corresponds with the need to provide better security options not only at the federal level but also at the state and municipal level of government. I believe these products and solutions only prove that the government relies heavily on the technology advances in the private sector.”

In addition to being honored at ISC West, the winners will be featured on and highlighted in a future issue of GovSec magazine.
