Award win makes us part of an Innovation Nation

Blacklock May 31, 2022

Blacklock scooped the first trophy at the Reseller News Innovation Awards on May 25 in Auckland, recognising Blacklock’s efforts to improve automation and lower costs in the cyber security industry.

Blacklock received the Start-up Innovation Award.

The Reseller News Innovation Awards also saw awards for Partner Innovation, Tech Innovation, NZ-wide Innovation, Personal Innovation, Vendor Innovation, Distributor Innovation and Hall of Fame. The awards were presented at a 1000-seat event at Shed 10, by Britomart in Auckland, attended by a Who’s Who of tech businesses.

Reseller had revamped its awards submission criteria in 2021 and, in entering, Blacklock was required to submit a detailed, multi-page explanation of how the business has been striving to simplify, automate and increase affordability in penetration testing.

We can now boast the following benefits through Blacklock:

  • Automated vulnerability scanning for wide-ranging results - and this is combined with an expert manual pen-testing
  • One dashboard to consolidate all information assets, their vulnerabilities and reports
  • Easy streamlined payment system
  • Simple structure to organise retesting

Officially the 2021 awards, the event was postponed last year while Reseller aligned to COVID-safe conditions of entry to in-person event formats.
