Network Products Guide Honors Innovative, Architecture-Based Security Suite

Dallas, Texas, June 15, 2009 – Global DataGuard®, the premier provider of network behavior analysis-based Enterprise Unified Threat Management for small and medium business to large enterprise environments today announced that Network Products Guide, the industry’s leading publication on information technologies and solutions, has named the Enterprise UTM++Ô security suite a winner of the 2009 Best Products and Services – Readers Trust Award for Unified Security.

This respected annual award honors products and services that represent the rapidly changing needs and interests of the end-users of technology worldwide. According to Network Products Guide, “increased end-user awareness and ongoing advances in technology are helping to shape better products and services. As part of the tech-industry’s leading global awards program, this year’s Best Products and Services were nominated from all over the world.”

“The industry’s move toward unified security is undeniable,” stated Scott Paly, co-founder and chief executive officer for Global DataGuard. “This inevitable shift from standalone products to unification of security applications across a truly integrated platform is a strategy that many analyst groups have recently validated and major security vendors are now adopting as their ‘call to action’. We are pleased that Network Products Guide has recognized our intelligent, adaptive network behavior analysis-based security architecture as one of the few ‘future-proof’ technologies that can uncover sophisticated assaults and developing threats before they compromise critical network resources.”

The Enterprise UTM++ is an end-to-end security system that unifies network security from the ground up. At its foundation is a fully integrated architecture that utilizes patented network behavior analysis as the enabling technology – so security applications can work together, sharing and correlating information across all application subsystems to provide a deeper, historical context to threats and attack reconnaissance. This unified, network behavior analysis-based approach enables the Enterprise UTM++ to adapt and customize itself to the unique requirements of any network over time. Further, it provides a learned intelligence capability that can predict behaviors and track developing threats more quickly, before they compromise network resources.

The Enterprise UTM++ integrates a comprehensive suite of industrial-strength security applications that can be purchased as part of a complete security infrastructure or added incrementally, over time, as network requirements evolve. It’s also backed by 24/7 managed or co-managed services that can help any organization cost-effectively allocate internal resources and outsource network security requirements based on a company’s peak management requirements. A customized UTM++ security suite, together with managed security services, is available through a 30-day free product and services evaluation to qualified organizations.
