SAN FRANCISCO (BUSINESSWIRE) MAY – Punch Digital Strategies, Inc. is proud to announce we have won the award for “Most Innovative Go-To-Market Agency for Cybersecurity Startups” from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine.

“We are honored to receive this award as recognition of the work we have been doing behind the scenes powering some of the most innovative companies in cybersecurity today. We have the privilege to help our clients shape their message, define their brand and create the tools to aggressively go to market and drive growth. This award acknowledges that our work continues to make an impact for our clients, and on the industry as a whole.” Stated Brian Tillman, Punch Principal & Co-Founder.

“What’s unique about Punch is how we work with clients. We’re an extension of the team. We know the audience and the challenges they face, and we find creative ways to solve them – whether it’s through evolving the brand, website, or design of the product itself. It’s an honor to be recognized for our role in helping clients grow.” Added Joe DePalma, Punch Principal & Co-Founder.

“Punch embodies three major features we judges look for when identifying the go-to-market agency leader: understanding of the market, ability to create a message and user experience that resonates, and proven ability to deliver results time and time again for their clients” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
