Welcome to the November edition of the Computing Security Newsletter. And let me say straight away what a great night of celebrations it was at the recent 2013 Computing Security Awards, as people from right across the industry gathered to hear who had triumphed - and would be carrying off the much coveted winners’ accolades.

The event took place at the Hotel Russell in London's Russell Square, with the awards presented by former England and Kent cricketer Chris Cowdrey and stand-up comedian Patrick Monahan.

Avecto were winners in the hotly contested ‘New Product of the Year’ category, while Wick Hill fought off all challengers to retain its ‘Security Distributor of the Year’ title. Among the first timers to triumph was NTS, which picked up the ‘Security Reseller of the Year’ award. Titania was another to impress, as it scooped both the ‘Editor's Choice’ award and the ‘Enterprise Security Product of the Year’ award. There were also two awards for GFI Software and two for Celestix, including the prestigious ‘Company of the Year’ award.

Our thanks to all of the readers whose votes made this yet another exciting and close-run event. And to our sponsors - Check Point, Celestix, Emulex, Wick Hill and Kaspersky - whose generous support is greatly appreciated.
