NEW YORK, April 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Genpact (NYSE: G), a global professional services firm focused on delivering digital transformation, is a recipient of the 2019 CSO50 Award from CSO, the premier content and community resource for chief security officers and other decision-makers, published by IDG.
This prestigious honor is awarded to a select group of organizations that have led security initiatives which have created outstanding business value and thought leadership for their companies. This is the third consecutive year Genpact has been recognized for its best-in-class security practices by the CSO50 Awards.
The dynamic nature of the cloud, coupled with the complexity of having multiple cloud service providers and a large volume of cloud workloads, poses significant challenges to organizations in enforcing security and compliance requirements. Genpact received this year's award for its Cloud Security Automation initiative, which automates and integrates security for the cloud by re-engineering the foundational cloud architecture, significantly reducing risk due to misconfigurations and errors caused by administrators. In 2018, Genpact received the CSO50 Award for its Cyber Defense Center transformation initiative that took an innovative approach to revamping technology and processes for its cyber situational awareness, security intelligence, and response capabilities.
"Genpact is driving transformation for our clients through digitally-led, domain-enabled solutions – and having a robust and secure cloud foundation for our digital solutions is core to this mission," said Vidya Srinivasan, global infrastructure and IT leader, Genpact. "This award is a testament to our continued focus on cybersecurity when servicing and driving innovation for our clients."
"This year's class of CSO50 award winners, like Genpact, raise the bar on security innovation," said Amy Bennett, executive editor, CSO. "While delivering business value and demonstrating thought leadership are the metrics on which they are measured, the greater value is in the peer-to-peer sharing of ideas across a range of industries, across company sizes, for-profit and not-for-profit, public and private. The magic really happens on the stage at the CSO50 conference when these projects are brought to life in presentations and panel discussions. It is an honor to give them the recognition they deserve."
The panel of judges included security leaders, industry experts, and academics. Genpact accepted its award at the at the CSO50 Conference held on April 8-10, 2019 at the Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.
