“In today’s era of digital transformation, large amounts of critical data move in and out of organizations as CIOs modernize their IT architecture to take full advantage of cloud and mobile technologies,” says Forcepoint Asia Pacific vice president George Chang.

“However, traditional security approaches are not able to keep pace with the technological advances and organizations are finding it difficult to protect their digital ‘crown jewels’.

“Our partners are helping to address the accelerated demand for human-centric cybersecurity as more and more organizations worldwide recognize the critical importance of securing humans and data in today’s sophisticated threat landscape.”

Forcepoint global channel sales vice president Oni Chakravartti says, “The awards reinforce the success our partners are enjoying in the marketplace due to the increased demand for human-centric cybersecurity.

“This, in turn, demonstrate customers’ acceptance of Forcepoint’s unique human-centric approach to cybersecurity and the security efficacy that can be achieved in understanding user behaviors on a network – delivering near real-time risk mitigation.”

“Our partners are integral to the Forcepoint business, and we’re committed to their success and are focused on helping customers gain a critical advantage with our behaviour- centric security solutions.”
