Proficio, a world-class managed security services provider (MSSP) delivering managed detection and response (MDR), has received eleven top honours by several industry award outlets in the first quarter of 2018.

Each awards programme highlighted Proficio's services offerings for managed cybersecurity services, Splunk services, their global expansion efforts in North America, EMEA and APAC and their security team's depth of expertise.

The eleven awards include three Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, five Info Security Product Guide 2018 Global Excellence Awards, a Cloud Computing Excellence Award and a spot on CRN's Security 100 list.

These prominent award programmes are focused on recognising companies that demonstrated excellence, innovation and leadership in the information security sector.

"It's an honor for our company to be recognised by so many prestigious organizations this quickly into 2018," stated Tim McElwee, co-founder and president of Proficio.

"These awards are an absolute testament to the passion, drive and quality work our team produces daily.

"Combatting today's advanced persistent threats requires a level of expertise and vigilance that our employees in North America, EMEA and APAC consistently demonstrate.

"This commitment to excellence is what makes Proficio a world-class organisation."

Notable achievements included securing top honours in the Info Security PG's Global Excellence Awards placing in four different categories.

Proficio was also the only cybersecurity company to be recognized with two awards in the Managed Security Services category.

It was also one of only nine companies selected for the In the Cloud Computing Excellence Awards, where it was recognised for excellence and innovation in its SOC-as-a-Service offering.

Proficio was once again awarded a placement on the Security 100 of CRN's 2018 MSP 500 list as well as San Diego Business Journal's Top Cybersecurity Organization List.

The CRN Security 100 list is designed to help partners wade through the ever-expanding security market, from the long-standing legacy vendors to the niche players, and navigate the fast-growing security vendor market.
