ISS (Intelligent Security Systems) has been named one of the small group of winners of this year’s “E-Awards” by the US Department of Commerce.

Originally created by President John F. Kennedy via executive order in 1961 as part of an effort to honor America’s leading exporters, the “E-Award” (“E-for-Export”) is the highest recognition an individual or entity can receive for making significant contributions to the expansion of US exports.

During this year’s awards ceremony, a total of 64 US companies and organizations from 32 states were presented with the President’s “E” and “E- Star Awards.”

Recognition for the second time

This is the second time that ISS has been recognized with an “E-Award” as the honor was previously presented to the New Jersey-headquartered business in 2020 and the company now holds “E-Star” status.   

The Awards were presented by the Hon. Gina Raimondo, US Secretary of Commerce, in the name and by the authority of the President of the United States.

In her letter citation to ISS, Sec. Raimondo stated: “ISS has demonstrated a sustained commitment to export expansion.

“The company’s innovative development of new products and redesign of existing products was also notable.

“ISS’ achievements have undoubtedly contributed to national expansion efforts that support the US economy and create American jobs.”

Giving confidence and credibility

“Winning first the “E-Award” and now an “E-Star Award” have meant a great deal to ISS,” said Richard Burns, ISS Chairman and Aluisio Figueiredo, CEO in a joint statement.

“The recognition has given us confidence and credibility in highly competitive foreign markets.

“We’re showing the world that a highly innovative, emerging New Jersey-based software company can compete and win against the biggest and the best around the globe.”
