Richard Huison, Gallagher.

Gallagher has been named Security Software Manufacturer of the Year at the prestigious Security & Fire Excellence Awards 2020 in the United Kingdom.

The award recognizes Gallagher’s outstanding innovation and commitment to high physical, integration, and cyber security standards. Their world-class site management software, Command Centre, and the Proximity and Contact Tracing Report were recognized as standout software solutions that secured Gallagher the award.

Gallagher’s Security Portal for Online Training also achieved industry recognition as a finalist in the Security Training Initiative of the Year category.

Gallagher’s UK Regional Manager, Richard Huison, said the award and nominations for Gallagher across multiple categories was testament to the team’s ability to innovate on many fronts.

“It’s great to receive this award and be recognized as a leader in the market for world-class security solutions,” Huison said. “Our team continues to go the extra mile to deliver innovative products that really help organizations. Our Proximity and Contact Tracing Report, which was delivered in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, is a fantastic example of this.”

Identifying its inherent need during the pandemic, Gallagher made its Proximity and Contact Tracing utility available to customers free of charge, following its well-timed launch in May 2020.

Global general manager for Gallagher, Mark Junge, said despite the upheaval brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, Gallagher has continued to increase its rate of investment to provide innovative solutions for customers.

“We’re all very proud of what the Gallagher team continues to achieve despite the disruptive nature of this year,” Junge said. “We place incredible importance on producing forward-thinking solutions of the highest quality, which continue to position us as at the forefront of security solutions worldwide.”
