The IT company SecurEnvoy has been announced as one of the winners of the 2014 Queen's Award for Enterprise.

Queen's Award for Enterprise is a business award across the commonwealth and rest of the world and this year it was held and presented on 21st April, Queen Elizabeth II's birthday. SecurEnvoy will received the award, in the "International Trade" category, for its invention of tokenless two-factor authentication.

"We feel hugely honoured to receive the 2014 Queen's Award for Enterprise from the Queen," comments 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 are all the more pleased to be able to see Queen Elizabeth at the award ceremony again this year."

The success of SecurEnvoy is attested by the London-based company's world-wide sales network, which now covers every continent. Queen Elizabeth presented the award to the company's founders, Steve Watts and Andy Kemshall.

The company's products SecurAccess, SecurCloud, SecurICE, SecurMail and SecurPassword are now 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.
