Q2 Holdings Inc. (NYSE: QTWO), a leading provider of digital transformation solutions for banking and lending, has been named an honoree of a 2021 CSO50 Award from IDG’s CSO. Q2 will accept its award at the CSO50 Conference + Awards on November 16-18, 2021. This is the second year in a row that Q2 has won this prestigious award. The CSO50 Awards recognizes 50 organizations for security projects and initiatives that demonstrate outstanding business value and thought leadership.
In 2020, Q2 replaced its existing networking hardware and needed a more robust solution to connect its centralized applications to remote data sources. Q2 partnered with Trustgrid, a zero trust connectivity platform that enables organizations to build distributed networks between business partners, consumers, and other agencies. Trustgrid provides cloud-native software-defined networking, which enables application providers to centralize management, automate security, and increase network availability from the cloud to the data center.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled to be recognized as a CSO50 award winner for our work with Trustgrid,” said Lou Senko, chief availability officer at Q2. “Because of Trustgrid’s ability to extend our security posture across our entire external network their automated operations and managed services were the superior choice. Since implementation, Trustgrid has helped Q2 heighten our security, shorten deployment times and simplify day-to-day support of over 1,000 network connections.”
“The disruptive events of 2020 – combined with sophisticated and far-reaching attacks like SolarWinds – brought new challenges and costs to organizations, their security leaders, and business outcomes,” said Amy Bennett, executive editor of CSO. “Our annual CSO50 Awards recognize security teams that bring innovation and thought leadership to solving for the many risks their organizations continue to face. This year’s class of CSO50 winners represent an elite group of risk and security thought leaders, and we are pleased to give them the recognition they deserve.”
