TAMPA, FL – Sept. 30, 2021OPSWAT, the global leader in Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP), today announced that it has been named “Overall Infrastructure Security Solution Provider of the Year” in the fifth annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards. This year’s award program received more than 4,000 nominations worldwide and is conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.

With the continuing convergence of Information Technology (IT) and Operational Technology (OT) systems in critical infrastructure environments, coupled with a significant rise in high-profile ransomware attacks against critical infrastructure sectors, more organizations are looking to improve their security posture to avoid crippling operational disruption. OPSWAT offers a range of security solutions for enterprise IT and Industrial Control Systems (ICS)/SCADA environments, ensuring protection from file and device threats at all levels of the business.

“This is an exciting recognition from CyberSecurity Breakthrough and one that validates our mission to protect the world’s most critical infrastructure from malware and zero-day attacks,” said Benny Czarny, Founder and CEO of OPSWAT. “Our ‘Trust no file. Trust no device.’ framework and portfolio of MetaDefender and MetaAccess solutions enable customers to adopt a zero-trust philosophy and protect their infrastructure from the increase of cyber-driven disruptions. This award is a testament to the importance of our mission and the strength of the solutions we offer.”

OPSWAT’s MetaDefender solutions provide the technologies necessary for securing file uploads, transfers, and storage, including deep Content Disarm and Reconstruction (CDR), multiscanning, proactive Data Loss Prevention (DLP), file-based vulnerability assessment, sandbox and threat intelligence. Additionally, OPSWAT’s MetaAccess solutions provide endpoint compliance, application removal, endpoint malware detection, endpoint vulnerability assessment and more.

With a $125 million equity investment earlier this year, OPSWAT has rapidly scaled both its operations and solution portfolio.

“Several recent devastating cybersecurity breaches on critical infrastructure highlight the urgent need for security of these sectors as they are essential to the functioning of a society and economy,” said James Johnson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “OPSWAT has firmly set itself as a pioneering leader with ‘breakthrough’ cybersecurity solutions for critical infrastructure protection. As most organizations have transitioned their operations to the cloud and BYOD environments, OPSWAT has responded to the growing need for secure network and device access. Congratulations to the entire OPSWAT team on being our choice for ‘Overall Infrastructure Security Solution Provider of the Year.’”
