CyberSmart up for three awards


Awards season is just around the corner. So we’re delighted to kick proceedings off with a bang, bagging three nominations at the 2021 Network Computing Awards

What is the Network Computing Awards? 

Network Computing Magazine is one of the UK’s most prominent online tech publications. It began life in the 1990s as a monthly print publication covering the tech world, before moving to online-only in the late noughties.

As part of its focus on IT and tech, Network Computing also hosts an annual awards ceremony celebrating the best the industry has to offer. Past winners read like a veritable who’s who of tech royalty, including everyone from SolarWinds to Dell and Cisco.

What awards is CyberSmart up for? 

We’re honoured to have been nominated for three awards:

Remote Working Product of the Year (Cybersmart Active Protect)

The One to Watch Company (CyberSmart)

The Innovation Award (Cybersmart Active Protect)

We’re particularly proud to see CyberSmart Active Protect up for two awards. We’ve spent most of the year so far refining our approach to cybersecurity for SMEs. And these nominations are a great early sign that we’re on the right track.

But we’re just getting started. The rest of 2021 will see more exciting developments and the launch of several new products.

In the meantime, we’d like to wish all the other nominees the best of luck. We’ll certainly be crossing everything in the run-up to the ceremony on the 21st of October!

CyberSmart nominated for UK Innovative Vendor of the Year

CyberSmart nominated

We’re proud to announce CyberSmart has been nominated in the UK Innovative Vendor of the Year category at the 2020 CompTIA UK Spotlight Awards.

Who doesn’t love an awards ceremony? The sense of camaraderie with the other nominees. The tension. And the chance to celebrate this year’s greatest innovations in a room full of like-minded people. 

So we’re delighted to have been invited to the 2020 Comp TIA Awards. CompTIA is a global not-for-profit trade association, promoting excellence and standards within the tech industry.

What’s the award for?

The Innovative Vendor of the Year award is open to any tech business demonstrating innovation or an approach that has transformed their organisation, a client’s, or the wider industry. For 2020, candidates who have shown leadership in their community or organisation during the COVID-19 crisis will be given special consideration. 

We’re particularly excited to be nominated in the innovation category. The COVID-19 crisis has brought the importance of good cyber hygiene into sharp focus. With many small businesses working remotely, cyber threats are on the rise. And these conditions have made our mission to help SMEs better protect themselves more crucial than ever. 

What does the future hold?

We started CyberSmart with the goal of innovating a much-neglected part of the UK economy: cybersecurity for SMEs. This nomination is confirmation that we’re on the right track. 

But we won’t stop here. We’re determined to be a force for good in the world. We won’t rest until good cyber hygiene is part of every SME’s daily routine – much like brushing your teeth or washing your hands. 

We’d like to thank our backers, everyone at CyberSmart who made this nomination possible and, of course, our customers.
