CLIFTON, N.J., Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Comodo, a global innovator and developer of cybersecurity solutions and the worldwide leader in digital certificates, today announced that Comodo Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) has been selected as winner of the "APT Software of the Year" award from CyberSecurity Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.
Comodo AEP is a complete endpoint protection platform comprising multiple security technologies, including anti-virus, host-based intrusion prevention system (HIPS), web filtering, personal firewall, white/blacklisting, application control, behavior analyzer, device control, vulnerability analyzer, patching and Secure Auto-Containment. It also provides management and reporting in an integrated package that maximizes security and administration effectiveness while minimizing support burdens.
"The industry stubbornly sticks to an outdated 'default-allow' approach that permits unknown applications and files to run with unfettered access to system resources, welcoming threats with open arms," said Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo CEO. "In sharp contrast, Comodo promotes default-deny security posture, which automatically wraps unknown applications/executables in an isolated container and blocks known bad ones, with default-allow usability. We currently have more than 87 million endpoints with no endpoint infections or security breaches reported thus far. We are honored that CyberSecurity Breakthrough has recognized this innovation. It further emphasizes our commitment to offering the best of the best security to the enterprise community."
The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security and many more. This year's program attracted more than 2,000 nominations from over 12 different countries throughout the world. All nominations were evaluated by an independent panel of experts within the information security industry.
"All businesses are now faced with addressing the incoming onslaught of highly customized and sophisticated threats," said James Johnson, managing director at CyberSecurity Breakthrough. "Comodo's Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) platform impressed the judges with a combination of advanced security technologies and management tools that help companies efficiently and effectively address these ongoing threats. Congratulations to Comodo on its award win and industry recognition."
