Hosted by American Security Today, the Annual ‘ASTORS’ Awards, now in its fifth year, is the preeminent U.S. Homeland Security Awards Program, highlighting the most cutting-edge and forward-thinking security solutions coming onto the market today.

“2020 has been a very challenging year for everyone due to the COVID-19 pandemic however, the 2020 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program was a huge success and many new categories were added including a section for COVID-19 Detection and Innovation,” said Michael Madsen, co-founder and publisher of American Security Today.

The program is specifically designed to honor distinguished government and vendor solutions that deliver enhanced value, benefit and intelligence to end users in a variety of government, homeland security, enterprise, and public safety vertical markets.

As the nation continues to respond to escalating threats from home and abroad, the innovative solutions being implemented to meet those threats, has led to tremendous growth in the field of Homeland Security.

“Today, the United States is increasingly focusing on protecting public spaces, as well as IT/cyber security networks and they are calling on innovative companies like AMAROK to help them do so,” according to Tammy Waitt, co-founder and editorial director of American Security Today.

FORTIFEYE was selected for the Gold ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award for Best Perimeter Protection System for its ability to protect the perimeters of commercial businesses and industrial sites by integrating electric security fencing, video surveillance, and video monitoring to create an ultimate crime prevention solution.

Our people are focused on effective, efficient safety and security for Americans, and this ASTOR award recognizes their efforts.”
