Intercede shortlisted for Tech Innovation of the Year category at UKtech awards sponsored by PwC

Intercede recognised for outstanding success in commercialising new technologies

London, UKLeading digital identity expert Intercede today announced it has been shortlisted for the prestigious Tech Innovation of the Year Award in the annual UKtech awards.

The UKtech awards is a showcase for innovative and high performing companies in the technology sector, celebrating their success, recognising their achievements and raising the profile of the UKtech community. Born from the techMARK awards, the awards are open to companies on the main London Stock Exchange, the AIM index for fast growing tech companies and private tech companies.

“This is the fourth award we’ve been shortlisted for over the last couple of months, and it’s a real attestation for the team at Intercede to be recognised by our peers in the technology industry,” said Richard Parris, CEO, Intercede. “We’ve made some great leaps over the last year and 2015 promises to be even better, with our team working hard behind the scenes to always keep one step ahead of our competitors.”

“2014 has seen an influx of high profile digital security issues and so the demand for products has never been higher. I have no doubt that this demand will continue to increase exponentially as we see the rise of the Internet of Things. With more and more devices connecting to each other and each and every one of them prone to attack, it is vital to increase the public’s awareness of the dangers in this exciting connected world,” Parris added.

Ian Restall of the UKtech voting panel commented, “The UKtech awards provide a great opportunity for successful companies, like Intercede, who are growing rapidly, to gain the recognition they deserve for their hard work and contribution to the industry. We were overwhelmed by the number of entries we received and the competition was strong, so we had quite the task of whittling the entries down to a shortlist of six in this category.”
