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.
