The Technology of the Year Awards is InfoWorld’s annual flagship article — a showcase for the best enterprise tech as determined by our expert contributors and staffers.

No wonder. As Fahmida Rashid reported last week in “Why 2017 will be the worst year ever for security,” successful attacks continue to increase at an alarming rate — and, more ominously, many breaches go unreported. The costs of those attacks, some due to stealthy APTs (advanced persistent threats) initiated years ago, may never fully be known.
