Global awards for startups
Founder and organiser of the awards Rose Ross said, “Our goal in our first year was to create a truly global award for enterprise tech startups with prizes that would actually help them grow their businesses. The Tech Trailblazers has proved itself as the enterprise tech world’s independent award dedicated to discovering the hottest new enterprise tech innovations from around the world.”
- SaaSID won the Cloud Trailblazer section. The company, based in Basingstoke, tackles the challenges of cloud adoption, specialising in authentication, management and auditing products.
- The Sustainable IT award went to Sheffield’s Iceotope for its provision of liquid-cooled servers that offer full time, cheaper cooling for cloud services deployments.
- Irish firm Ventisys Technology walked away with the Security Trailblazers prize. The company’s flagship product is Oudles Vault which protects laptop data and documents using 256-bit encryption.
“Exciting new technologies are being developed all over the world by fledgling companies that need only the recognition and resources to succeed. We look forward to watching our winners flourish in 2013 and welcoming even more entrants to the awards next year,” said Ross.
