Scottsdale, Arizona, September 1, 2009 -- CellTrust, a leading provider of secure mobile messaging and applications, today announced it has been named as a finalist in the Arizona Technology Council's 2009 Governor's Celebration of Innovation (GCOI) awards, in partnership with the Arizona Department of Commerce. CellTrust was selected as a finalist in a category that recognizes the most innovative small companies in Arizona.
"We are pleased CellTrust has been selected as a finalist for this prestigious award," said Sean Moshir, Chairman and CEO of CellTrust. "CellTrust remains a leader in secure information technology, and this nomination solidifies our continued growth within the industry. We are currently planning for our growth in 2010 which will create many more jobs here in Arizona."
GCOI honors Arizona's technology leaders and innovators each year, and more than 1,000 guests are invited to share the evening with the nominees during the gala event.
While there are many handset manufacturers today, fewer suppliers create true multi-platform mobile software enabled to run on all handsets, due to the difficulty of developing software for multiple handsets from different manufacturers. CellTrust has broken this barrier, and is considered to be one of the few suppliers of this multi-platform technology.
"After assessing potential companies for this award, our independent panel of judges determined that CellTrust stood out as a strong candidate for innovation and leadership," said Steve Zylstra, president & CEO of The Arizona Technology Council. "CellTrust has been honored as a finalist to recognize its milestone achievements within the last year in secure information technology."
Winners will receive Arizona's highest honor for technology innovation on November 19, 2009 at the Orpheum Theatre, 200 West Washington Street in Phoenix from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. Tickets for the prestigious awards gala include the pre-award show cocktail reception, awards ceremony, strolling dinner and a VIP Backstage "Green Room" party can be purchased at http://tinyurl.com/AZGCOI.
