Another year, another set of awards for Coviant Software and Diplomat MFT.
Coviant Software recently announced that we earned five Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, including four gold and one silver, for our products and also our leadership. These acknowledgements mean a lot to us because we strive to be the value leader in secure, managed file transfer (MFT) software, and so when we are recognized for being flat-out good, that’s icing on the celebratory cake. And, yes, we’re going to boast a bit.
Thing is, MFT often gets overlooked. It’s not considered sexy. But if you are responsible for moving a lot of sensitive information between different locations and organizations, while having regulators breathing down your neck, MFT is the tool you need. And we think that makes it pretty darned sexy.
The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards program is run annually and it covers a broad range of security product categories and company sizes with those categories. Coviant Software competes in the 10-49 employee range, and our Diplomat MFT platform and earned the following honors within the secure file transfer product category:
Cybersecurity Industry Solution – Financial Services
Cybersecurity Industry Solution – Healthcare
Cybersecurity Industry Solution – Manufacturing
Cybersecurity Product – Secure File Transfer
Our CEO, Gregory Hoffer, also took home gold and was namedCybersecurity Executive of the Year.
We’re seeing a lot of interest in MFT lately, thanks to the sudden need of many organizations having to manage collaboration between remote teams, the increasingly stringent data security regulations, and the movement of personally identifiable information (PII) across national boundaries. There are a lot of ways to go about transferring this information. Some organizations think they can get away with some of the do-it-yourself tools that are widely available but the risks are too great when you consider the consequences of getting it wrong.
The Ponemon Institute’s annual Cost of a Data Breach Report says the average total cost of a data breach is $3.86 million. That’s steep enough, butfines under the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) have exceeded $50 million. In fact, the top five fines to date under GDPR include:
Google — $56.6M
H&M — $41M
Telecom Italia Mobile — $31.5M
British Airways — $26M
Marriott International — $23.8M
It’s clear that secure data management, including secure, managed file transfer, is an important aspect of any information security strategy. And while being recognized as tops in our niche is great, it’s even better when our customers tell us they think we’re tops.
