FIDO Alliance Wins SC Media’s 2019 Editor’s Choice Award

Our time at RSAC 2019 was especially rewarding this year as we were announced the winner of the SC Media’s 2019 Editor’s Choice Award. The SC Awards are recognized throughout the cybersecurity industry as the crowning achievement for IT security professionals and products.

2018 was a landmark year for the FIDO Alliance in our mission to move the world towards cryptographically secure, standards-backed authentication mechanisms such as on-device biometrics and FIDO Security Keys. Being named the winner of this award validates the impact FIDO standards have in helping solving the world’s password problem.

Each year, hundreds of applications are reviewed and narrowed down to a select group of finalists that represent the best solutions and services to protect today’s businesses from an ever-changing landscape of security threats.

The individuals, programs and teams selected as winners are run through a rigorous judging process that includes testimonials, industry assessments and additional research. Winners in the Professional Award categories (such as the Editor’s Choice Award) were hand-picked by a panel of judges for their outstanding service, qualifications and advancements to the cybersecurity industry.
