Absolute Software picked up the award for its Computrace software, which allows businesses to centrally track devices, remotely delete data and help recover stolen computers.

Now entering its third decade, the SC Awards Europe honour professionals working to secure enterprises – and the vendor and channel communities that deliver these innovative security technologies.

Dave Everitt, general manager EMEA at Absolute Software said, “Computrace has been hugely successful with our customers and this is reflected in the award at this years ceremony. It’s also good to get some recognition for all the hard work that our team has put in this year.”

“Businesses are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of data security and, with the introduction of the ICO fines this year, it’s essential that they have the systems in place to properly protect their sensitive information. We will continue to help businesses comply with the new rules and tackle the security challenges of tomorrow,” continued Everitt.
