TAMPA, Fla. – October 14, 2020 – A-LIGN, a fast-growing security and compliance firm that offers a single-provider approach combining industry-leading expertise and innovative technology, has been named the winner of the “SMB CyberSecurity Solution of the Year” award. The CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program is produced by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market.

In today’s rapidly evolving threat landscape, SMBs face difficult trade-offs trying to keep up with increasing regulatory and privacy requirements. Under pressure to balance limited time and resources, finding a partner who can get them through the compliance process quickly, easily and accurately is critical. A-LIGN ensures SMBs successfully demonstrate trust and respect to their stakeholders by providing breadth and depth of experience, innovative technology through the A-SCEND compliance management platform, and a personal touch that’s impossible to find when dealing with large factory-like accounting firms.

“A-LIGN is transforming compliance for SMBs by aligning their business, security and compliance goals while mitigating cybersecurity risks,” says Scott Price, Chief Executive Officer. “We’re honored to be chosen as the SMB CyberSecurity Solution of the Year. This proves our continuous commitment to exceeding client expectations and why we continue to hold a 96% client satisfaction rating, one that’s unparalleled within our industry and unmatched with our competitors.”

A-LIGN is proud to partner with 2,500 clients in 30 countries on more than 10,000 assessments. SMBs choose to work with A-LIGN due to their agility, 24-hour response time and the use of A-LIGN’s proprietary compliance management platform, A-SCEND, helping to reduce the time and resources needed to prepare for an assessment.

The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security and Email Security. This year’s program attracted more than 3,750 nominations from 20 different countries throughout the world.

“When it comes to achieving compliance, SMBs often struggle with resources, time and experience. Having a partner that invests in innovative technology and offers world-class support is not standard in the compliance industry, and A-LIGN is tackling this challenge head-on,” said James Johnson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “We want to recognize A-LIGN for taking an innovative approach and building a technology platform that empowers SMBs to achieve compliance, and we congratulate
A-LIGN for breaking through the cybersecurity and compliance landscape to take home our ‘SMB CyberSecurity Solution of the Year’ award.”
