SonicWall President and CEO Bill Conner has been recognized a 2022 SC Media Excellence Award finalist in the Best Security Executive of the Year. Now in its 25th year, the SC Awards are cybersecurity’s most prestigious and competitive program. Finalists are recognized for outstanding solutions, organizations, and people driving innovation and success in information security.
“Thank you to SC Magazine for this honor and congratulations to the many deserving nominees and finalists. This is truly a company award and is a reflection of the support and trust that our dedicated team of security professionals have helped to earn among our partners, distributors and end customers,” said SonicWall CEO and President Bill Conner. “SonicWall has over 30 years of success delivering world-class security solutions, and that success is due largely to our first-class partner community. We are excited for SonicWall’s continued growth, propelled by more than 17,000 channel partners worldwide.”
Entries for the SC Awards were judged by a world-class panel of industry leaders, from sectors including healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, consulting, and education, among others.
“Bill Conner and other Excellence award finalists reflect astonishing levels of innovation across the information security industry, and underscore vendor resilience and responsiveness to a rapidly evolving threat landscape,” said Jill Aitoro, Senior Vice President of Content Strategy at CyberRisk Alliance, the SC Magazine parent company. “We are so proud to recognize leading products, people and companies through a trusted program that continues to attract both new entrants and industry mainstays that come back year after year.”
The 2022 SC Awards were the most competitive to date, with a record 800 entries received across 38 categories — a 21% increase over 2021. This year, SC Awards expanded its recognition program to include several new award categories that reflect the shifting dynamics and emerging industry trends. The expanded Excellence Award categories opened participation to startups, as well as the investors and financial partners supporting their success.
Winners will be announced during SC Awards week, scheduled to begin August 22, 2022. A ‘Meet the Winners’ networking reception celebration will take place during InfoSec World 2022, Sept. 27, in Orlando, Fla.
