After five months of evaluation and three phases of judging by NetworkWorld Asia editors and 100 CIOs and IT heads of end-user organizations across Asia Pacific & Japan (APJ), the security solutions offered by CA Technologies emerged as these experts’ top choice to meet the governance, compliance, and risk requirements of today.
“We are thrilled to once again receive the NWA Information Management Award, reaffirming CA’s regional leadership in the security management sphere. For the third year, industry influencers and thought leaders have recognized our vision of security as a core business function instead of a back-room afterthought,” said Vic Mankotia, vice president, Security & API Management, Asia Pacific & Japan, CA Technologies. “In today’s application economy, security is more important than ever, not just to protect, but also to deliver frictionless and positive customer experience and contribute to business growth.”
CA Technologies, along with the rest of the finalists, were chosen based on the following criteria:
- Reputation of vendor in the marketplace;
- Features and USPs of the vendor’s solutions/tools;
- Widespread acceptance of technology and/or brand;
- Users’ feedback on the solutions/deployments;
- Contributing factors such as durability, scalability and quality of service.
“For three out of four years, CA Technologies has been the vendor of choice among the region’s top IT leaders for the Governance, Risk and Compliance category of this award. This is a strong endorsement of the company’s comprehensive and unique security portfolio that breaks through as not just an IT function, but as a business enabler,” said Victor Ng, South East Asia Bureau Chief for NetworkWorld Asia.
About NWA Information Management Awards
The NWA Information Management Awards, inaugurated in 2012, aims to recognize Asia's leaders in Information Security, Storage and Data Management for the huge advances made in these fields over the last few years.
It is the only regional Editors' Choice Awards for this mature but growing niche area, backed by Questex Media Asia – publisher of Network World Asia, Networks Asia, Security Asia and Storage Asia – and its team of experienced editors with deep and broad industry knowledge, as well as conference producers, marketers and panel of CIO advisers with deep insights in Information Management.
Editors researched and shortlisted 2-3 finalists for some 30 awards categories. The list of finalists was then put up for online voting. 100 regional CIOs and IT heads were invited to vote, and the finalist with the most votes in each category emerged as the award winner.
