CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Nov 13, 2013) - SC Magazine has named Trustwave a finalist for 2014 SC Magazine U.S. Awards for the company's application, content and network security technologies, as well as for excellence in customer service for its managed security services.

"Each year, the SC Magazine Awards program benchmarks the achievements of the top IT security professionals in the industry," said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. "This is an event like no other. It gives solution providers and vendors an opportunity to connect with the who's who of IT security in a unique setting, while being recognized as one of the 'best-of-the-best' in the industry."

In the SC Magazine Reader Choice category, Trustwave is a finalist for Best Network Access Control, Best Web Application Firewall and Best Web Content Management Solution for Trustwave Secure Web Gateway. The SC Magazine Reader Choice category honors best-in-class security products and services selected, from hundreds of entries, by a panel of readers representing the readership of SC Magazine.

In the SC Magazine Excellence Awards category Trustwave is a finalist for Best Customer Service -- a category the publication added last year. Trustwave is known for its excellence in customer service, particularly for Trustwave Managed Security Services. With hundreds of nominations, entries are then evaluated by a jury, hand-picked by SC Magazine's editorial team for their extensive knowledge and experience in the information security industry.

"SC Magazine is the IT security industry's leading awards program, and we are proud to be finalists in these four categories," said Leo Cole, general manager of Security Solutions at Trustwave. "Our application, network and content security solutions help businesses fight cybercrime and protect data by securing Web applications, enabling safe mobile and BYOD deployments and by mitigating malware. Since they're also available as managed security services, it's fitting that SC Magazine is also naming Trustwave a finalist for our intense focus on customer service -- it's that unique focus on service that helps Trustwave stand apart."

Judges for the SC Awards include individuals from end-user companies, analyst and consulting communities and educators. In addition to reviewing the materials provided by entrants, the judges are encouraged to review other sources of applicable outside research and analyst reports, as well as product reviews appearing in SC Magazine.

Winners of this year's SC Awards U.S. will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in San Francisco on Feb. 25, 2014.
