Network Products Guide Honors Masergy’s Global DataGuard With Product Innovation Award for Behavioral-Based Security Suite

Architecture-Based Enterprise UTM++ Selected a Winner in Security Solution Category

Dallas, Texas, July 13, 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++™ security suite a winner of the 2009 Product Innovation Award for Security in both the hardware and software categories. The Enterprise UTM++ is the cornerstone of the company’s ground-breaking family of security products. It delivers a comprehensive suite of fully integrated, industrial-strength security applications that can be managed from a single console.

“Innovation is clearly an important factor to greater success and has the most impact on staying competitive,” said Rake Narang, editor-in-chief of Network Products Guide. “This annually venerated award recognized and honors vendors from all over the world who offer innovating and ground-breaking products that raise the bar in all areas of information technology.”

“Product innovation is inherent in our strategy for meeting customers’ current and future needs,” stated Scott Paly, co-founder and chief executive officer for Global DataGuard. “Our intelligent, adaptive Enterprise UTM architecture includes ‘future-proof’ technology that utilizes patented network behavior analysis to uncover sophisticated assaults and developing threats before they compromise critical network resources. With this product suite, we are committed to championing the industry’s ‘call-to-action’ for a cost-effective, simple-to-install unified security platform that can withstand collective attacks from today’s cybercriminals.”

An end-to-end security system, the Enterprise UTM++ has at its foundation 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 not only catch an attack in progress, but to discover reconnaissance activity and other precursors to the attack and manage it proactively, before it can harm vital network assets. Further, a learned intelligence capability allows the system to adapt and customize itself to the unique requirements of any network over time.

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. 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 website.
