Castra Named as Finalist in 2 SC Awards Categories

Castra’s combination of advanced analytics, threat intelligence, and human expertise is earning critical recognition.

Durham, North Carolina — May 2022 — Castra Managed Services has been nominated as one of SC Magazine’s Top 5 "Best Managed Detection and Response Services" and "Best Managed Security Service" as part of the publication’s SC Awards campaign for this year.  

For 25 years, SC Awards have recognized the solutions, organizations, and individuals that push the cybersecurity industry forward. The award committee grants two types of awards to its entrants: Trust awards for security product and service providers, and Excellence awards for top companies, leaders, and investors innovating in the tech startup community. 

The final nomination is scheduled to take place in August, with SC Magazine selecting a single nominee for each of more than thirty different categories, including Leadership, Data Security, Incident Response and more.  

The Managed Detection and Response category focuses on organizations that deliver human cybersecurity expertise to customers without requiring them to onboard new employees, while the Best Managed Security Service category recognizes vendors that deliver turnkey security solutions with co-located or entirely remote technology. 

"We are humbled at being included as a two-time finalist, and we know that our process and people are what got us here." said Grant Leonard, Castra co-founder, "Castra's combination of technology and glass box approach presents clear value to enterprise leaders, and we're excited about the opportunity to showcase our abilities." 

“Reaching the finalist stage two years in a row, especially given the quality and funding levels of our competitors,” said Tony Simone, co-founder, “shows validation for our model and approach which breaks the mold of most typical MDRs. The entire Castra team and I eagerly await the winner’s announcement in August.” 

SC Awards week begins on August 22nd and culminates on September 27th with a winner’s reception at the InfoSec World Conference in Orlando, Florida.
