McLean, VA – February 26, 2018 – Cyren (NASDAQ: CYRN) today announced that its Cyren Email Security solution won the 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Award for Best Email Security.
One of the industry’s most coveted award programs, the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards recognize products, companies and individuals that demonstrate innovation, excellence and leadership in information security. Winners are selected based on the strength of their nomination and the popular vote.
