Global Dataguard Named A Finalist In Cloud Security For 2012 Global Excellence Awards

Info Security Products Guide Highlights Unified Cloud Security Advancement

Addison, Texas, January 4, 2012 – Global DataGuard, the premier provider of network behavior analysis-based (NBA) Unified Enterprise Security™ (UES) and Unified Enterprise Cloud Security™ (UECS), today announced that Info Security Products Guide has named its VMware-enabled All-n-One Security Module™ (ASM) a finalist in the Cloud Security category for the 2012 Global Excellence Awards. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, groundbreaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of technology.

The ASM is the first hardware appliance of its kind that integrates a comprehensive set of VMware-enabled security applications – network behavior analysis, IDS/IPS, vulnerability scanning, prioritized threat management, security and event log management, and network access and policy monitoring – into a single virtual server. The ASM is supported by a complete managed security service infrastructure that includes a unified console and a built-in ticketing system. It can be provisioned to secure public, private, and hybrid cloud environments as well as physical LAN/WAN environments and is capable of unifying security for multi-locational networks.
“Global DataGuard is one of the few solutions providers today who can deliver an intelligent, adaptive, unified security architecture that spans on-premise, virtualized and cloud/on-premise network environments – enabling our customers to achieve and maintain compliance across their entire network ecosystem,” stated Scott Paly, co-founder and chief executive officer for Global DataGuard. “While other security vendors are only now implementing a unified security strategy as part of a commercially available security solution, Global DataGuard is delivering a ubiquitous, architecture-based security platform that uses enhanced network behavior analysis as the enabling technology to help customers withstand the increasingly sophisticated, combined attacks associated with today’s cybercriminals.”

Adaptive, Predictive, Proven
Within a virtualized environment, Global DataGuard’s scalable, unified enterprise security offering allows industrial-strength, VMware-enabled security applications to share and correlate massive amounts of data over long periods of time across multiple security subsystems, so customers have visibility into reconnaissance activity and are able to take preventive steps to defend against new zero-day vulnerabilities, evolving hacker tools, brute-force attacks, and advanced persistent threats (APTs).
All Global DataGuard products are backed by 24/7 Managed Security and Professional Services that can help any organization effectively outsource network security requirements at a cost that is typically less than one full-time employee. With unified administration, monitoring and reporting and an integrated network security ticketing system, Global DataGuard’s holistic approach to security provides for the earliest warnings of threats, dramatically reduces false positives, and enables unparalleled management of a company’s total information security environment. The company also offers to customers the CloudCheck Certification Program™, a vendor-neutral service that enables businesses to ensure their cloud or premise-based/private cloud networks meet stringent government and industry standards pertaining to the confidentiality, integrity and security of sensitive customer data.
