Align Wins Best Cybersecurity Provider in Hedgeweek US Awards

Align Recognized as Best Cybersecurity Provider in 
Hedgeweek US Awards

NEW YORK, NY – October 26, 2021 – Align, the premier global provider of technology infrastructure solutions and Managed IT Services, today announced that it has been voted as “Best Cybersecurity Provider” in the 2021 Hedgeweek US Awards. This recognition is based on an online peer-review survey in which investors, hedge fund managers and service providers are invited to nominate a “best-in-class” in a variety of categories.


Over the past 18 months, Align Managed Services and its dedicated Cybersecurity Advisory team have ensured that their clients were able to operate their firms seamlessly and securely while addressing the compliance, operational and security challenges associated with the pandemic and subsequent industry shifts.

“To meet client demand, Align is continually evolving its services to account for industry changes. As a result of this dedication to innovation, Align was the first firm to offer a built-in Cybersecurity Advisory team as part of a Managed IT Services offering,” said John Araneo, Managing Director, Cybersecurity & General Counsel. “The Align Cybersecurity team really pioneered the concept of providing model cybersecurity programs that are appropriately scaled for investment advisers.”


As cybersecurity controls continue to evolve and adapt to everchanging threat vectors, regulatory regimes, technologies, prevailing security standards and more, it has never been more critical to approach cybersecurity from the ground up by focusing and investing more in the underlying IT infrastructure.
