ParetoLogic's finalist trophies celebrate widely different achievements. The Team of the Year category recognizes ParetoLogic's Spyware Analysis Team. With their continuing efforts to identify and destroy malware, and their commitment to sharing their knowledge with industry insiders and general users, SWAT fit the award description as 'demonstrating outstanding initiative and service delivery.' In a video interview played at the gala, Jerome Segura, SWAT's Team Lead, said one of the group's motivations was to "educate every customer and non-customer."

The Innovative Excellence award celebrates a product 'expected to revolutionize a sector, method of business, or way of life.
