Dear Reader,

These days a lot of companies describe themselves as solution providers. It is fair to say that isolated products can not solve security and safety problems but we need to remember that no solution and no project can be developed without state-of-the-art products. This is why since many years we are supporting product development in our industry with GIT SECURITY AWARD.

The award is going into the next round now and is a great opportunity for the industry to introduce products to an international audience and to test how popular their products are. If you work for a vendor of security or safety products we would like to invite you to apply for GIT SECURITY AWARD already now and submit your product entry. The registration page is open until March 31.

Best regards

Heiko Baumgartner for GIT's safety and security team
