On October 1st, Ackcent was recognized for outstanding growth in MSSP business by the BlackBerry Cylance Partner Program. BlackBerry partners around the globe gathered in London last Tuesday to attend the second annual Partner of the Year Awards for global ISVs and EMEA channel partners. Winners were selected due to their commitment, impact within the marketplace and utilization of Blackberry´s technologies. The Blackberry Partner of the Year Award is a flagship security conference taking place on a yearly basis.
Ackcent and Duo Security joined forces to share meaningful expertise in cybersecurity to our clients. Another edition of our Cyberlunch was held in Madrid, where we discussed Multifactor Authentication (MFA) over food and wine. Together with Duo experts and clients, we shared our experience and insights on how Duo helps us in our daily procedures and compliance with regulations such as PCI-DSS. Duo Security is an MFA solution based on Zero Trust principle by only trusting on users using 2FA before granting access to systems, gaining visibility over devices, ensuring device trustworthiness, enforcing access policies and enabling secure access to all applications from a central point.
Last week saw another edition of Europe’s largest cybersecurity event Infosecurity Europe , which Ackcent once again attended with a group of clients, together with some 20.000 professionals working in the sector. We took advantage of the opportunity to call in at a number of different stands representing the diverse providers and companies that have a presence in Infosecurity, as well as taking part in meetings with our strategic partners and talking with them about the latest solutions and developments in cybersecurity, including the ones highlighted below: Mosher Lerner, SVP Product Strategy Manager at Checkmarx , a leading SAST solution for S-SDLC code revision and implementation, presented new Software Composition Analysis (SCA) functions for identifying, evaluating and remedying the code security vulnerabilities of the open software used by developers.
