In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

• ReliaQuest is rewriting the rules of security by advancing the traditional Managed Services offering beyond managing hardware and software. The company's proven, individualized processes for engineering, detecting and responding to cyber threats provides complete visibility and control of an organization’s data. No two businesses are alike, which is why ReliaQuest transforms organizations into proprietary security platforms, uniquely architected to address the IT security challenges of their businesses. ReliaQuest helps customers normalize their IT security spends while improving data access, visibility and analysis.

• ReliaQuest’s culture of continuous training and development helps the company and its customers stay on the cutting edge of the security industry. By continuously exploring opportunities to automate and streamline more monotonous processes, ReliaQuest enables its team members to stay challenged and grow with the organization. As one example, the ReliaQuest Cyber Simulator replicates real-world events in a scalable, on-demand environment, enabling the most current and comprehensive training and development in the industry.

• ReliaQuest does the work that others aren’t willing to do, making security possible regardless of the challenge. ReliaQuest develops customized content to detect cyber threats based on each client's business needs, rather than relying on standard content provided by tool manufacturers. ReliaQuest parses, correlates and analyzes even the largest data sets, regardless of source, in order to reduce the “noise” in enterprise organizations' security programs.
