Konica Minolta announced it has received the gold award in the cybersecurity category of the 2022 Merit Awards for Technology for its Managed Endpoint Detection and Response (MEDR) service. The Merit Awards is an independent awards program that recognizes global industries and the markets they serve with gold, silver and bronze-level designations.
Launched in August, Konica Minolta’s MEDR service is designed to protect supported endpoints against modern attacks and exploitation. The cloud-based service helps to secure endpoints on organizations’ IT networks by detecting unusual or potentially malicious activity and responding to neutralize any possible threats before they can cause compromise. Konica Minolta’s MEDR service leverages the highly skilled security resources within its Managed IT organization, its team of global security experts and its partnership with SentinelOne to offer a best-in-class solution that is unmatched in this space.
“We are honored to have won this award for our MEDR service,” said Gene Abramov, vice president, Security Services, Konica Minolta. “While this recognition reinforces our commitment to stay ahead of the curve in endpoint security technology, it also acknowledges our ability to deliver next-generation cybersecurity detection and response solutions that detect, protect and defend our client organizations’ endpoints against advanced malicious attacks and exploitation, with minimal impact on the endpoint itself.”
“The submissions for the 2022 Merit Awards for Technology were overwhelmingly filled with content that communicated the depth and reach technology has on our lives,” said Marie Zander, executive director, Merit Awards. “We applaud each of this year’s winners and look forward to their continued successes.”
