NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Semperis, the leader in identity-driven cyber resilience, today announced that Semperis Active Directory Forest Recovery (ADFR) was named the Trust Award winner in the Best Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery Solution category of the 2020 SC Awards. Winners were announced on February 25, 2020 during the 24th annual SC Awards gala in San Francisco, presented by SC Media, a CyberRisk Alliance company.
The SC Awards are recognized throughout the security industry as the gold standard of excellence in cybersecurity. Receiving this prestigious award further reinforces Semperis’s position that Active Directory (AD) protection and recovery is one of the best security investments an organization can make because if AD is corrupted, encrypted, or wiped out, the impact on an organization’s business operations can be devastating.
“Traditional AD backup tools only address recovery from IT operational issues, where AD is affected, but host servers are not. Semperis ADFR is the only solution that can recover AD even if host servers are infected or wiped out,” says Mickey Bresman, CEO at Semperis. “Winning this recognition by SC Media is a great honor and validates our mission to empower organizations worldwide to say no to ransom and blackmail demands.”
For organizations that cannot tolerate lengthy outages or degraded service, Semperis ADFR orchestrates a fully automated AD forest recovery process – avoiding human errors, reducing downtime to minutes instead of days or even weeks, and eliminating the risk of malware reinfection. Key capabilities include Anywhere Recovery, Clean Restore, and Advanced Automation.
Winners of the Trust Award were chosen by a distinguished group of leading IT security professionals from SC Media’s readership and selected by SC Media’s editorial team. Entrants were narrowed down to a select group of finalists before undergoing a rigorous final judging process to determine the winner of each category.
“Since we last celebrated our SC Awards winners in 2019, ransomware attacks have evolved to include data wiping and information leaking, the California Consumer Privacy Act officially took effect, and software supply chain attacks have grown bigger and bolder,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “As an SC Awards winner in the Trust category, Semperis has demonstrated that they will help user organizations prepare for whatever new challenges emerge in 2020 and beyond.”
The SC Award is one of multiple industry awards to honor Semperis at the RSA Conference 2020. Additional award wins include the 16th Annual Info Security PG’s 2020 Global Excellence Awards, where Semperis ADFR was named a gold winner in two categories – Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Solution and Data Center Backup and Recovery Solution. Semperis was also recognized by the CyberDefense Magazine InfoSec Awards, winning in two categories – Cutting Edge Ransomware Recovery Solution and Publisher’s Choice for its Hybrid Identity Protection Cybersecurity Conference Series.
Other recent honors include the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards in which Semperis was awarded two honors – Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery (BCDR) solution and Best Cybersecurity Conference. The Edison 2020 Best New Product Awards also honored Semperis earlier this year in the data management category.
