Infosec Europe is now well underway, and last night was the annual EU Security Blogger Awards, where InfoSecurity Magazine:

…recognise[s] the best blogs in the industry as first nominated by peers and then judged by a panel of (mostly) respected industry experts.

Malwarebytes Labs was announced as winner of the Best Cybersecurity Vendor Blog. We previously won best corporate security blog in 2015 and 2016, and we were delighted to see we had several other nominations this year:

  • Best commercial Twitter account (@Malwarebytes)
  • Most educational blog for user awareness
  • Security hall of fame (for our own Jérôme Segura)
  • Grand Prix for best overall blog

It’s excellent to be recognised alongside such legendary security pros as Graham Cluley, Mikko Hyppönen, and Troy Hunt, as well as fellow security companies Tripwire, Sophos, Bitdefender, and many others. Without further ado, let’s see who won in the various categories.
