TAMPA Fla., April 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- OPSWAT, the leader in Critical Infrastructure Protection, is proud to announce that MetaAccess NAC has been recognized as a Trust Award finalist in the Network Access Control product category for the 2021 SC Awards. MetaAccess NAC provides Endpoint Protection and Secure Access for traditional networks as well as remote and cloud access.
Organizations continue to be faced with the ever-increasing onslaught of unknown devices accessing their critical infrastructure. Employee, customer, contractor, guest, and supplier devices are all potential threat vectors representing a challenge to implement network security policies without inhibiting business productivity. MetaAccess NAC helps customers ensure that every network connection and endpoint device is visible, allowed, or blocked appropriately in real-time – reducing threats and security incidents significantly.
"We are honored to receive such a prestigious industry recognition from SC Media," said Benny Czarny, CEO and Founder of OPSWAT. "With security attacks increasing, especially with emerging threats from Work from Home (WFH) environments, OPSWAT MetaAccess NAC combines our simplified access control architecture, remotely managed support services, and customer-centric business philosophy to enable IT peace of mind and user productivity for our customers."
Now in its 24th year, SC Awards is recognized as the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity organizations, products and people. With the awards, SC Media recognizes the achievements of cybersecurity professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities.
"The judges considered a record number of candidates for the Trust Awards this year but recognized those that introduced new functionality either through enhancements to existing products or through new offerings to better respond to increasingly sophisticated threats," said Jill Aitoro, editor in chief of SC Media and editorial director at CyberRisk Alliance.
This is just one of many milestones and recognitions that OPSWAT has received this year. Just recently, it announced a $125 million growth investment from Brighton Park Capital to support global expansion, R&D innovation and strategic acquisitions as well as its successful completion of Common Criteria Certification.
