Masergy’s Global DataGuard Receives ‘Tomorrows Technology Today’ Awards for Innovative, Network Behavioral Analysis-based Enterprised UTM Products

Ground-Breaking Network Access and Policy Management Solution Honored in Three Categories

Dallas, Texas, July 14, 2008 – Global DataGuard, the premier provider of network behavioral analysis-based (NBA) Enterprise Unified Threat Management for small and medium business to large enterprise environments today announced that Info Security Products Guide, a worldwide expert in the information security industry, has recognized the company’s patent-pending Network Security Zones™ (NSZ) solution with 2008Tomorrow’s Technology Todayawards in three distinct categories: Unified Security, Network Security Solution and Security Risk Management.

Editors of the Info Security Products Guide publication continuously research and analyze products and technology from more than 750 vendors worldwide. With theTomorrow’s Technology Todayawards, they recognize an elite group of vendors who set the standard for innovation in the information security arena. The NSZ system was recognized in multiple categories for its unique ability to prevent data leakage and help customers achieve regulatory compliance across multiple vertical markets without costly, complex and time-consuming network rearchitecture, host agents or additional equipment.

“Our Network Security Zones solution is the first behavioral-based network access and policy management system that’s purpose-built. It enables network zones or access policies to be set for critical assets, ensuring continuous monitoring of secure relationships between specific network resources and users for specified time intervals,” stated Dean A. Trumbull, vice president and chief operating officer for Global DataGuard. “This robust capability is an inherent component within our Enterprise UTM product portfolio, enabling Global DataGuard to provide customers with the most cost-effective, adaptive and predictive security products that can be customized to fit their unique business requirements.”

Defined Boundaries for Uncompromised Network Security
The Network Security Zones module helps businesses to securely and effectively manage and monitor access to information and applications across multiple systems and disciplines, while delivering unimpeded online services to their employees, customers and suppliers. This unique capability allows organizations to define what an individual can access within the network, at what time and from which location. Any violation of established boundaries will generate an unauthorized access alert. The NSZ system is an easy-to-use and cost-effective alternative to other cumbersome, expensive NAC and Identity and Access Management solutions on the market today. It works with drag-and-drop simplicity and is administered through an easy-to-use Security Dashboard, giving customers an instant business intelligence view of their company’s corporate security posture.

NSZ features are fully integrated at the architectural level with all of Global DataGuard’s industry proven, enterprise-class applications and are powered by a patented network behavioral analysis and correlation engine. This architecture consists of integrated security layers that adaptively learn and enhance its security capabilities on a continuous basis. The result is early warning of threats other solutions cannot see, far fewer false positives, and the ability to manage a company’s total information security environment with one console. This distinctive approach enables businesses to realize far better performance and service at a substantially reduced cost of ownership – up to 60% over other standalone products or loosely integrated security offerings. Further, it ensures that customers can efficiently achieve and maintain ongoing regulatory compliance with PCI, SOX, HIPAA, NERC CIP, NCUA and FISMA standards.

Pricing and Availability
Available immediately, the Network Security Zones Module is priced at $25,000 in the U.S. This network access and policy management system can also be leased with turnkey managed services for $2,500 per month. The NSZ is a fully integrated, plug-n-play component within the Global DataGuard Enterprise UTM++ solution, and custom configurations can be designed and priced based on an organization’s unique network requirements.
