PKWARE Wins 2021 Fortress Cyber Security Award and People’s Choice Stevie® Award


Business Intelligence Group and American Business Awards honor PKWARE for world-leading encryption and compliance capabilities

MILWAUKEE – June 15, 2021 – PKWARE, a global leader in automated data security, today announced it has won two awards: The Business Intelligence Group’s 2021 Fortress Cyber Security Award for PK Encryption and a special People’s Choice Stevie® Award for Favorite New Product in the 19th Annual American Business Awards® (ABAs) for its Governance, Risk & Compliance capabilities.

“We’re so grateful to be recognized by both the Business Intelligence Group and the American Business Awards,” said Spencer Kupferman, CEO of PKWARE. “In 2021, our incredible team has been honored with eight awards, which showcase our dedication in meeting the enhanced threats of today’s ever-evolving security environment. Our solution suite, PK Protect, is perfectly positioned to address a host of these evolving threats in the cyber arena and will help the user community meet compliance regulations across the globe.”

The Fortress Cybersecurity industry awards program sought to identify and reward the world’s leading companies and products that are working to keep data and electronic assets safe among a growing threat from hackers. PKWARE’s PK Encryption solution protects businesses from financial and reputational damage while adding confidence that sensitive information is secure. The solution encrypts files and databases, as well as data that is being transmitted, by converting usable data into an unreadable form and providing decryption to those with proper access to reverse the process.

Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group, stated: “As our society continues to evolve and become more reliant on networks and data, companies like PKWARE are critical at providing the protection and trust consumers demand.”

The People’s Choice Stevie Awards for Favorite New Products are a feature of the ABAs in which the general public can vote for their favorite new products and services of the year. More than 92,000 votes were cast in people’s choice categories this year. All new products and services nominated in the ABAs’ new product categories were included in people’s choice voting. PKWARE previously won two gold Stevie awards this year in the categories of Governance, Risk & Compliance Solution and International Data Protection Solution.
