Security Today Announces The Govies Government Security Award Winners for 2017

Dallas, Texas, March 28, 2017 - Security Today magazine, the only integrated product and technology magazine reaching the entire security market and, the preeminent editorial website for the security industry, announced the 2017 winners in The Govies Government Security Awards competition today. The awards honor outstanding government security products in a variety of categories.

1105 Media launched its government security awards program in 2009. In 2011, this successful program became known as The Govies. The tradition of honoring outstanding government security products continues this year with the program taking on the name of 1105 Media's newly relaunched Security Today magazine (formerly Security Products). Participation in the program has been especially strong this year as government security continues to be an ongoing concern. Platinum and Gold designations within award categories will be announced during the ISC West Expo, which will be held April 5-7 at Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

1105 Media's Security Today, and GovSec branded media offer important information to the government security market through a vast portfolio of products.

"The Govies is an amazing product recognition program whereby companies in the security industry can highlight their technology and solutions that work flawlessly within the government vertical," said Ralph C. Jensen, editor in chief of Security Today magazine and "We received 28% more entries this year, which also corresponds with the need to provide better security options not only at the federal level but also at the state and municipal level of government. I believe these products and solutions only prove that the government relies heavily on the technology advances in the private sector."

In addition to being honored at ISC West, the winners will be featured on and highlighted in a future issue of Security Today magazine. The magazine is distributed to more than 65,000* subscribers monthly as well as at numerous trade events, including ISC West.
