June 12, 2017 – Aqua Security today announced that it was named Best Newcomer Security Company of the Year at the 2017 SC Awards Europe. The announcement was made Tuesday, 6th June at the awards presentation held at Old Billingsgate, London.
“Aqua Security has demonstrated the ability to innovate within the application industry with its container security platform, which integrates strong, automated security controls into the application development and delivery lifecycle,” said Tony Morbin, Editor in Chief, SC Media UK. “What I find particularly impressive about Aqua Security is that it is making security accessible to IT professionals outside of security – specifically, DevOps practitioners. It is so important to recognise those who raise the bar, and reward exemplars that facilitate best practice. Aqua Security is a great example of this within the industry and we are delighted to honour them as Best Newcomer Security Company for 2017.”
