OPAQ Shortlisted for Best Emerging Technology in 2018 SC Awards

We received some exciting news last week. The OPAQ Cloud was named an Excellence Award finalist in the Best Emerging Technology category for the 2018 SC Awards, an annual competition that recognizes the top solutions in the cybersecurity industry.

This is the second major accolade our technology has received in the past two weeks. The OPAQ Cloud was recently named best (Platinum) Network Security solution in the 2017 GSN Homeland Security Awards for cybersecurity excellence.

Making this list is very gratifying. The SC Awards are widely regarded as the gold standard in cybersecurity. The winners will be announced at the SC Awards ceremony on April 17 in San Francisco, in conjunction with the RSA Conference, the industry’s largest gathering.

According to Illena Armstrong, VP, Editorial for SC Media, “OPAQ Networks has demonstrated unique innovation in its approach to protecting companies from the onslaught of malicious attacks and other threats. Their solution represents some of the most effective security technology on the market today.”

The OPAQ Cloud is a security-as-a-service platform that integrates a private network backbone with built-in enterprise-grade security capabilities from the world’s leading technology providers and our own intellectual property.

Our vision was to create a solution that makes advanced cybersecurity protection accessible to midsize companies that lack the resources and staff to knit together and manage multiple products themselves. With the OPAQ Cloud there’s no hardware or software to buy, install and manage.

Since many midsize companies lack in-house security expertise, the OPAQ Cloud is available from managed service providers who can remotely monitor and protect their networks.
