ASIS International Selects 2012 Accolades Winners

2012 ASIS Accolades Award winners were recognized at the ASIS International 58th Annual Seminar and Exhibits  (ASIS 2012), held Sept. 10-13 in Philadelphia. A team of judges representing end users and experts in security technologies evaluated more than 40 entries before selecting the top 10 winners.

“This year’s entries presented a unique challenge to the judges,” observed Accolades Co-Chair Ron Lander, CPP. “Continued advances in communications and database management yielded a field of products whose cross platform application and integration with existing products and services showed through. The judges were collectively excited and fascinated by the direction security product and service advances are taking.”

Co-Chair Howard Belfor, CPP, noted, “The continued growth in database management and the rapid transformation in computing power are maturing products that previously were single dimensional. It would seem that the convergence we are now witnessing is one of shared databases and interoperability on many fronts.”

All Accolades entrants displayed their entries in the Accolades Showcase in the Grand Hall. Additionally, winners were highlighted, along with other new products during the Seminar’s “What’s New on the Floor” session.
