)-- PC Pitstop, the makers of PC Matic Pro, today announced that Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine, has honored PC Matic Pro in its 2018 Cyber Defense Global Awards. PC Matic Pro was named the editor's choice for its anti-malware capabilities.
This is Cyber Defense Magazine’s sixth year of honoring cyber defense and information security innovators. The judges are CISSP, FMDHS, CEH, certified security professionals who voted based on their independent review of the company submitted materials on the website of each submission. CDM has a flexible philosophy to find more innovative players with new and unique technologies, than the one with the most market share or money in the bank.
“Cyber Defense Magazine spent six months searching the globe to find the most innovative and cutting edge cyber security companies for our Cyber Defense 2018 Global Awards,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher, Cyber Defense Magazine. “PC Pitstop won this award for Editor’s Choice Anti-Malware because it is an innovator on a mission to help stop breaches and get one step ahead of the next threat, proactively.”
“We are thrilled to be recognized in this year's Cyber Defense Global Awards,” said Rob Cheng, founder, and CEO of PC Pitstop. “This award demonstrates the value and innovation that PC Pitstop brings to our customers and further solidifies the importance of our proactive approach to malware detection."
PC Pitstop received the award for driving innovation in malware detection through two patent-pending technologies integrated into their security solution, PC Matic Pro. First, the globally automated whitelist technology, designed to only allow known-trusted programs to execute, and second, the malicious scripting block which effectively thwarts fileless malware attacks.
