We are delighted to reveal that Keith Bloodworth, CEO & founder of CNL Software, was selected as the third most influential leader in the security tech design, development & integration category. His nomination speaks volumes of what he has brought to the industry, “Keith Bloodworth is best known as a founder of Axis Communications and as an industry visionary always looking at ways to make security capable of doing more with less. He has invested more than three decades of his life and made huge financial commitments into pushing security out of the basement and into the top floor of organizations. Most recently he is the creator of CNL Software, which is at the forefront of physical security development, with users of his software technology ranging from the US government to airports to fortune 500 companies.”

The process consisted of two stages. First, IFSEC invited nominations from the IFSEC Global audience and beyond. Then, a panel of judges, drawn from across the industries and barred from featuring in the list themselves, assigned points to each nomination based on the persuasiveness of the nomination, their research into the nominee and their own knowledge of the nominee’s contributions to their field.
