MADISON, Ala., April 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- EdgeFrontier®, Intergraph®'s proven middleware solution for technology and data integration, today won a coveted Gold "Govies" Government Security award at the 2012 Government Security Conference & Expo (GovSec) now underway in Washington, D.C.
EdgeFrontier took a top ranking award for the IT Software/Hardware division. Security Products magazine presents the "Govies" Government Security Awards annually to honor outstanding government products in a variety of categories.
Touted as the "ultimate Swiss army knife for creating interfaces," EdgeFrontier integrates various types of data, events, and control functions from diverse sources, enabling business and government agencies to use their information in a quick, efficient, and easy to understand way.
"The intelligent convergence of data into real-time information is key to gaining visual insight into complex and sensitive situations," said Patrick Esposito, Director of Business Development, Intergraph. "Most businesses today collect and utilize data from multiple sources that incorporate their own processes. EdgeFrontier overcomes those boundaries to produce understandable and usable results."
EdgeFrontier provides the technology to integrate data quickly and efficiently leading to time and cost savings, bandwidth savings, interoperability, and operational efficiencies for businesses and government infrastructures.
"Winning a Gold Govies award is certainly an honor and helps validate the many operational and cost advantages EdgeFrontier offers our business and government customers over our competitors' offerings," said Gen. Jack Pellicci (RET.), Intergraph Government Solutions president and CEO.
The EdgeFrontier Govies award will be on display at GovSec in booth #2725 along with the other 2012 Govies award winners. Exclusive EdgeFrontier demonstrations will be available at Intergraph Government Solutions booth #2825 throughout the conference week.
The 2012 Government Security Conference & Expo is being held April 2-4 in Washington, D.C.
