BULVERDE, Texas, October 3, 2019— VirtuCrypt, a Futurex company, today announced that its cloud-based hardened enterprise security platform was named Enterprise Encryption Solution of the Year for 2019 by CyberSecurity Breakthrough. This is the second award from CyberSecurity Breakthrough, who named Futurex the Overall Encryption Solution Provider of the Year in 2018. This year’s program attracted more than 3,500 nominations from around the world.
With more than 80% of businesses experiencing a cybersecurity incident this past year, sensitive financial and customer information is at great risk, according to the latest report from Forrester Consulting. Companies with high security requirements, especially those in financial services, retail, and Internet of Things (IoT) device manufacturing, are turning to VirtuCrypt for their cryptographic security needs in the cloud.
“We are honored to be recognized for our enterprise encryption cloud hardware security module and key management solutions,” said Ryan Smith, vice president of global business development at Futurex. “It’s a great testament to our company’s commitment to building best-in-class cryptographic infrastructures and solutions for top-tier organizations.”
The migration to the cloud is continuing at a rapid pace across enterprises in all industries.

Eighty three percent of enterprise workloads will be in the cloud by 2020, according to a recent LogicMonitor cloud study.
Enterprises with stringent data security requirements, such as financial institutions, retailers, and IoT device manufacturers, need advanced data security. VirtuCrypt meets their cryptographic security needs in the cloud, offering Futurex’s Hardened Enterprise Security Platform, with added cloud-based features including offsite disaster recovery and redundancy; hosted core cryptographic infrastructures; secure data storage, processing, and validation; all from within a TR-39 and PCI PIN-certified secure facilities.
