Masergy’s Global DataGuard Named a Finalist for 2011 Global Excellence Award in Security Compliance Category

Info Security Products Guide Applauds Unified Compliance Solution

Dallas, Texas, Decemeber 20, 2010 – 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 Unified Enterprise Security System (UTM++ 3300) a finalist in the Compliance Solution category for the 2011 Global Excellence Awards. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of technologies.

Derek Brink, Vice President and Research Fellow for Aberdeen’s IT Security Division, notes in a Research Brief on Network Behavior Analysis: Protecting by Predicting and Preventing that “organizations who utilize network behavior analysis correlate strongly with Best-in-Class performance. These users are far more likely to proactively investigate security incidents and threats, monitor privileged users, track suspicious behaviors and prevent data leaks.” Aberdeen believes this vision is consistent with the Best-in-Class view of security and compliance as a strategic sustainable program, as opposed to a series of one-time events.

“Global DataGuard is one of the few solutions providers today who can deliver an intelligent, adaptive, unified security architecture that helps customers achieve and maintain compliance by uncovering complex assaults and developing threats before they can compromise confidential data and critical network resources,” stated Scott Paly, co-founder and chief executive officer for Global DataGuard. “While other major security vendors are only beginning to implement this strategy as part of a commercially available security solution, Global DataGuard is actually delivering a ubiquitous, architecture-based security platform that uses network behavior analysis as the enabling technology to help customers withstand the increasingly sophisticated, combined attacks associated with today’s cybercriminals.”

Adaptive, Predictive, Proven
Global DataGuard’s simple-to-install, Unified Enterprise Security platform enables industrial-strength 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 and brute-force attacks. It’s also backed by 24/7 Managed Security and Professional Services that can help any organization effectively outsource network security requirements at a cost that’s 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.

This customizable security suite, together with managed security services, is available through a 30-day free product and services evaluation to qualified organizations. Companies interested in this ‘no-cost’ trial offer can request additional information by contacting Global DataGuard at 972.980.1444, x226, or by completing a request for information on the Contact Us section of the Global DataGuard web site.
