SAN DIEGO, March 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- EdgeWave® Inc., a leading provider in cybersecurity, today announced that the company has been recognized in three categories by the 2019 InfoSec Awards, hosted by Cyber Defense Magazine. The awards recognize EdgeWave's innovative product line that helps companies better secure their organization.
"With cybercrime continuing to gain momentum, surpassing global drug crime last year and projected to reach over $1 trillion in theft and damages in 2019, we are proud to see EdgeWave as an award-winning innovator, offering a new approach to defeat these criminals," said Pierlugi Paganini, editor-in-chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.
For the second year in a row, EdgeWave received recognition as the Market Leader in Anti-Phishing for their ThreatTest product, an automated inbox detection and response solution that uses machine learning and expert human review to quickly catch, analyze and resolve suspicious emails. This unique, patent-pending approach dramatically reduces targeted attacks, while also significantly lowering dwell times and costs spent by IT investigating and recovering from email incidents.
EdgeWave has also been named a Hot Company in Email Security and Management for their email security platform that provides complete predelivery protection, postdelivery detection and email incident response. By covering all three elements, EdgeWave follows the defense-in-depth approach, applies it to email security and protects organizations from the latest email threats.
Lastly, EdgeWave won Best Product Deep Sea Phishing for their postdelivery detection solution, the world's first fully managed, postdelivery anti-phishing solution. At its core is ThreatTest. The key to ThreatTest's "deep sea phishing" detection capabilities is its in-depth Threat Detection Center email analysis. Suspicious emails don't go to IT — they go to EdgeWave's Threat Detection Center and run a gauntlet of advanced threat filtering engines and machine learning and, most importantly, by expert human analysts.
"We are excited to be recognized for our product innovation and market-leading solutions, especially ThreatTest," Steve Kelley, CEO at EdgeWave, said. "Customers are clearly seeing the value of ThreatTest. Not only is it protecting organizations from targeted, social engineering attacks, it is saving IT teams time and resources."
