Security Products magazine, the only integrated product and technology magazine reaching the entire security market, announced Platinum and Gold winners in The Govies 2014 Government Security award competition yesterday at a ceremony on the show floor of GovSec, 1105 Media’s premier government security conference and expo. The awards honor outstanding government security products in a variety of categories. GovSec is being held May 13-14 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C.

Last month, the judges narrowed down the 2014 submissions to those achieving top status. Top entries earned the opportunity to display their products in The Govies Booth (#2529) at GovSec.
