ASIS Accolades, a highly respected awards competition from ASIS International, recognizes new ventures that are destined to become security mainstays. At today's Networking Luncheon, ASIS President Dave Davis, CPP, will announce the ten winners of the Accolades "Security's Best" awards.
This summer, exhibitors were invited to submit products and services introduced within the past year. In their submissions, companies were asked to describe a problem with existing security technologies, then tell how their new product or service solved the problem or addressed a void. The entries included an analysis of the innovative features of the product or service to help the judges in their deliberations.
A team of judges represented end users as well as experts in physical and information security evaluated the entries. The judges will also single out at least one product for a Judge's Choice Award.
People's Choice. Remember, you have until 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday to make your selection for the People's Choice Award. Just stop by the booth where your top choice is on display and cast your ballot. After all the votes have been tallied, the winner will be announced at the Wednesday's General Session.
