SecurEnvoy is one of the winners of the 2014 Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, the most significant and prestigious business award across the commonwealth and the rest of the world.
SecurEnvoy received the award, in the ‘International Trade’ category, for its invention of tokenless two-factor authentication (2FA) and the company’s world-wide sales network, which now covers every continent. Queen Elizabeth herself presented the award on her Birthday, the 21st April, to the company’s founders Steve Watts and Andy Kemshall.
Founded in 2003, SecurEnvoy has offices in the UK, Germany and the USA and has established a world-wide network of international resellers. The company’s products SecurAccess, SecurCloud, SecurICE, SecurMail and SecurPassword are exported to North and South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania. SecurEnvoy pursues channel sales of its solutions, which gives customers the advantage of being able to work directly with local partners. As a result, the technical and sales infrastructure is continually expanding to support an increasing number of languages and cultures across the world.
Award for International Trade
It is for these international sales activities that SecurEnvoy was given the 2014 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the “International Trade” category. Nominations for each category are decided by an independent jury, which then submits its recommendations to the advisory committee of the Prime Minister. The committee conveys its final recommendations to the Queen, who personally approves the winners.
In addition to the award, winners like SecurEnvoy can also expect an invitation to a special reception at Buckingham Palace in July. SecurEnvoy’s products will be able to display the Queen’s Award emblem with immediate effect for the next five years as a symbol of quality and success.
“We feel hugely honoured to receive the 2014 Queen’s Award for Enterprise from the Queen,” commented Steve Watts, Co-Founder and Sales & Marketing Director of SecurEnvoy. “For years we have focused on the expansion and globalisation of our sales network. It’s great that the resulting success of our products has been acknowledged and has even resulted in an award from such a prestigious body. After having already won the Queen’s Award for Innovation in 2011 and having been able to meet the Queen then, we were all the more pleased to be able to see Queen Elizabeth at the award ceremony again this year.”
