Optery has been honored for its outstanding contributions to cybersecurity in the following categories:

  • Attack Surface Management

  • Digital Footprint Management

  • Employee Privacy Protection 

Optery’s recognition in these categories highlights the company’s commitment to effectively managing exposed executive and employee PII—commonly leveraged in social engineering, credential theft, and initial access attempts—and to protecting businesses and their people from a variety of other PII-based threats, such as identity theft, doxing, and harassment, thus ensuring a safer and more private work environment.

“Today’s enterprise attack surfaces extend well beyond the traditional boundaries, encompassing exposed PII found across the vast array of data brokers online,” said Paul Mander, GM at Optery for Business. “Effectively managing these digital footprints and protecting employee privacy are therefore critical for comprehensive organizational security. We are grateful for Optery’s recognition in these pivotal categories.”

“We congratulate Optery on being recognized as an award winner in the Attack Surface Management, Digital Footprint Management, and Employee Privacy Protection categories of the 2024 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards,” said Holger Schulze, CEO of Cybersecurity Insiders and founder of the 600,000-member Information Security Community on LinkedIn, which organizes the 9th annual Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. “With over 600 entries across more than 300 categories, the awards are highly competitive. Optery’s achievement reflects outstanding commitment to the core principles of excellence, innovation, and leadership in cybersecurity.”
