SAN FRANCISCO and TEL AVIV, Israel, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GuardiCore, a leader in internal data center security and breach detection, today announced that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named the company as a Gold Security Startup of the Year and Silver Product Excellence of the Year winner in the Deception category at the 13th Annual 2017 Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards®. Recipients of these prestigious global awards were honored last night by the security industry for their innovative, ground-breaking products and solutions that are advancing the state of security technologies and the industry as a whole.
More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated, and their average scores determined the 2017 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners. Winners were announced during the awards dinner and presentation on February 13 in San Francisco attended by the finalists, judges and industry peers.
"The recognition of our innovative and dynamic deception methods and technology from Info Security Products Guide is very rewarding and validates our position as a leader in real-time breach detection and response for the data center," said Pavel Gurvich, CEO and co-founder of GuardiCore. "These awards, recognizing the company as a whole and our specific technology platform, are a direct reflection of the efforts, commitment and success of the entire GuardiCore team to deliver to customers more accurate and effective ways to stop and respond to advanced threats in the data center."
GuardiCore's flagship product, the GuardiCore Centra Security Platform, is the only security product on the market today that provides a single, scalable platform that covers five critical capabilities for effective data center security and protection: flow visualization, micro-segmentation, breach detection, automated analysis and response.
GuardiCore provides customers with un-paralleled visibility into their data center traffic, the ability to translate this visibility into fine-grained micro-segmentation security policies, and couples it with real-time breach detection and response capabilities based on innovative and dynamic deception methods and technology. All of this is accomplished without impacting server performance or traffic. The net result for GuardiCore customers is they are able to gain detailed visibility into their data center traffic, make well-informed policy decisions for micro-segmentation, and reduce the "dwell time" for active breaches to stop them before they result in data theft or other damage.
GuardiCore was also recently recognized by SC Magazine, which gave the GuardiCore Centra Security Platform a five-star rating and named it a Best Buy in its Group Test for Cloud Security Management, citing its comprehensive, reliable and easy to use platform.
