This year, CMC Cyber Security has 3 award-winning products: CMDD - malware prevention and centralized management solution for enterprises, which won the "2019 Award for High-quality Information Security Product"; CryptoShield - anti-data encryption software, which won the "2019 Award for Excellent New Security Product", and CMC Security Operation Center (CMC SOC), which won the award for "Prominent Information Security Service in 2019".

Launched and operated from the end of 2017, CMC NextGen SOC - the new-generation security operation center of CMC can monitor, detect and automatically respond to all information security incidents, using advanced technology combining AI - Machine Learning and Automation, enabling early detection of abnormal signs.
With the topic of "Enhancing national network safety and cyber security in a digital age", Vietnam Information Security Day 2019 brought together many domestic and international network security experts to discuss cyber security development as well as solutions to improve Vietnam's information security capacity. The highlight of the event was when leaders of the Government, National Committee of e-Government and leaders of large information security enterprises together press the button to launch the Information Security Monitoring System for e-Government. At the seminar on improving Vietnam's information security capacity, chaired by Mr. Nguyen Huy Dung - Director General of Information Security Department (Ministry of Information & Communications), Mr. Ta Hoang Linh (Deputy General Director of CMC TS, General Director of CMC Cyber Security) said that, currently, the number of entities working on information security products in Vietnam is not much. However, each has their own different strength, so it is necessary for Vietnam to form an alliance for malware prevention and information security towards the common goal of the country. In the afternoon seminars, cyber security experts of CMC also gave presentations on topics of "Platforms to ensure multi-layered information security for e-Government system" (by Mr. Nguyen Minh Thanh - Product Development Expert of CMC Cyber Sercurity) and "Ensuring the safety of data and personal information in cyberspace" (by Mr. Nguyen Tuan Anh - Expert of CMC TS).
