Every year we announce the winners of the ‘Cloud Architect of the Year’ election. This year a new category have been added to the election: best Cloud Security Architect. Below you will find more information about the categories and the winners of 2019.

Category 1: Cloud Security Architect

The cloud provides a whole new spectrum of security paradigms and new concerns arise. The (cloud) security architect is the one who is on top of this technology and works with his team to apply the appropriate level of technical controls on cloud.

Category 2: Cloud Architect

The best Cloud Architect combines business knowledge with the ability to apply detailed knowledge of cloud technologies. He/she develops and maintains high-level and solution designs which realize maximum business benefits.
