SpectorSoft Selected as Winner of Best of Interop 2014 Award in the Security Category

Interop Las Vegas Recognizes SpectorSoft for Advancing the Business Technology Market

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/08/14 -- Today SpectorSoft announced its selection as the winner of Best of Interop 2014 award in the Security category, recognizing SpectorSoft innovation and technological advancements. The Best of Interop winners were announced on Tuesday, April 1 at 5:30 pm in the Interop Theater on the Expo Floor during Interop Las Vegas, held from March 31 - April 4 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.

"The honor of having our Spector 360 Recon be selected for a Best of Interop award confirms the need for an internal security solution that balances corporate security concerns with employee privacy considerations," said Jason Judge, CEO, SpectorSoft. "Spector 360 Recon alerts organizations when it detects suspicious employee activities, but to protect employee privacy, only authorized personnel can view and act on the intelligence."

SpectorSoft showcased Spector 360 Recon at Interop Las Vegas, the industry's premier technology event designed to inform and inspire the IT community. The Best of Interop Judging Committee, comprised of 16 award-winning IT editors and analysts, reviewed nearly 130 entries and shortlisted submissions based on their significant technical impact and potential to move business technology forward.

"This was one of the best classes of Interop awards candidates that we've seen in the Security category in many years, but Spector 360 Recon really stuck out as the most innovative," said Tim Wilson, editor-in-chief of Dark Reading, who has been a Best of Interop judge for eight years. "Thanks to WikiLeaks and Edward Snowden, there is real concern among enterprises about data leaks -- but because of the crossover between work and home computing, there is also real concern about employee privacy. Spector 360 Recon addresses both of those issues."

"We want to congratulate SpectorSoft and all Best of Interop winners for their forward-thinking approaches to improving business efficiency through tech," said Interop General Manager Jennifer Jessup. "With so many competitive entries, our judges did much deliberating before naming category winners at the event. We were excited for attendees to be able to interact with these products and services at the expo."

Best of Interop judges selected winners within the following nine categories:

  • Cloud
  • Data Center
  • Management
  • Mobility
  • Networking
  • Performance
  • SDN
  • Security
  • Storage

In addition to these specific category areas, there were special awards chosen onsite including: an overall Best of Interop Grand Prize, Best Startup Company and an Audience Choice Award named during the keynote on Wednesday, April 2.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization).
