“For the past ten years, Security Today and GovSec have hosted The Govies, and I have been amazed at the innovation and technology entered in this product contest. Truly, manufacturers are ramping up their research and development, bringing top-quality solutions to the government vertical,” said Ralph C. Jensen, editor in chief of Security Today and GovSec 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 levels 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.
