The security industry celebrated its 2013 Global Excellence Awards in San Francisco by honoring excellence in every facet of the industry including products, people behind the successes and best companies.

More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2013 Global Excellence Awards finalists and winners. Winners were announced during the awards dinner and presentation on February 27, 2013 in San Francisco attended by the finalists, judges and industry peers.

USB Smart Card Reader

The industry's first USB smart card and common access card (CAC) reader specifically designed for today's demanding government applications, the Belkin Smart Card Reader offers the broadest range of smart card compatibility, including Class A, B, C (5v, 3v and 1.8v). The Smart Card Reader features a compact, tamper-resistant design for easy one-handed card insertion that is ideal for government data security use.

Secure Audio and Microphone Four-port Switch

The Belkin Secure Audio and Microphone Switch is designed for government and other environments requiring the use of secure Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) communications. It offers users centralized control over audio ports, and is designed to reduce the possibility of analog cross-talk of audio signals between computers running at different security levels. Supporting both stereo audio and microphone analog signals, the switch allows users to securely share headsets, speakers and microphones between computers or IP phones.

"Info Security Products Guide's recognition is further validation of the excellence we strive to achieve with our products," said Ben Thacker, global vice president, Business Division, Belkin International. "It represents our steadfast commitment to understanding the challenges our government customers face, and innovating quality products to address these challenges and deliver high-value solutions."
