Our goal has always been to provide effective malware protection without compromising system performance, and we’re honored to have this approach recognized by such a technically sophisticated community.”

This panel represents a cross-section of SC Magazine leadership, which is comprised of large, medium and small enterprises from all major vertical markets, including financial services, health care, government, retail, education and other sectors. Functionality, manageability, ease-of-use and scalability of the product or service, as well as customer service are considered during the judging process.


“This is one of the most exciting and illuminating award categories, as the finalists have to demonstrate the unique combination of strength in product, organization and fight against cybercrime to secure the vote of our readers,” said VP and editorial director, SC Magazine, Illena Armstrong.  “Congratulations to ESET for winning Best Anti-Malware Management by impressing not only SC Magazine editors but the magazine’s real judges: the readers.”
