LIFARS’ GARGAMEL Selected as SC Media 2021 Trust Award Finalist

SC Trust Awards

New York, NY – April 23, 2021 – LIFARS LLC, a leader in cybersecurity services, including incident response, digital forensics, ransomware mitigation and cyber resiliency, today announced that GARGAMEL, LIFARS’ tool for acquiring forensic evidence from remote Windows and Linux machines, has been recognized as a Trust Award finalist in the 2021 SC Awards’ Best Computer Forensic Solution category. Finalists are recognized for outstanding products and solutions impacting the cybersecurity industry. Winners will be announced online during Awards Week beginning Monday, May 3, 2021.

“The last year tested security professionals perhaps more than any time in history,” said Jill Aitoro, editor in chief of SC Media and editorial director at CyberRisk Alliance. “A pandemic forced a fast transition to remote working and inspired a wave of new, sophisticated attacks, and the impact of a supply chain breach reverberated across the public and private sector. The ability for organizations big and small to turn to security partners to help address this mountain of unexpected risk was and remains critical. This year’s SC Awards finalists, all of which faced many of the same unprecedented challenges, proved their commitment to both customers and the community at large.”

Now in its 24th year, the SC Awards are recognized as the industry’s gold standard for recognizing the accomplishments of cybersecurity organizations, products, and people. With the awards, SC Media recognizes the achievements of cybersecurity professionals, innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities.

“We are proud to be recognized by the SC Awards,” said Ondrej Krehel, chief executive officer and founder of LIFARS. “LIFARS looks forward to GARGAMEL continuing to effectively acquire forensic evidence, mitigate threats and support system administrators.”

“While the world will remember 2020 as the year of the pandemic and working from home, other threats did not diminish. In fact, phishing and ransomware experienced a banner year. LIAFRS and our other finalists for Trust Awards provided to companies the tools and services needed to respond to the unrelenting threat landscape, even as security teams scrambled to adapt internal security policies,” said Aitoro
