MINNEAPOLIS, Jan. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Barrier1™, the leader in "Intelligent Threat Management in Real Time"™, is pleased to announce that SC Magazine has selected Barrier1 as the 2013 Innovator of the Year for Perimeter Security.  This is the 2nd year in a row in which SC Magazine has awarded Barrier1 with this prestigious award.


According to Mr. Ron Johnson, Dir. of Marketing, "SC Magazine holds a Thought Leadership role for the Network Security community. The SC Mag. staff is introduced to an extraordinary number of ideas and concepts. It is not easy to win in its first year but to win for the second year in a row is an accomplishment very few companies have achieved."

According to Peter Stephenson, editor of SC Magazine," Are these players innovative? We absolutely believe that they are." In addition Mr. Stephenson states "This is the second year here for this Innovator."

Barrier1's onboard real time Intelligence Engine (AARE) ™ takes real-time information, learns, and performs analysis, and then blocks the threats it identifies in real time.  Then, Barrier1 redistributes what it has learned to its customers or community of customers within seconds, rather than months like the other network security vendors provide.  This process ensures real time protection.

Adds Johnson, "By accurately identifying these cybercriminals in real time, we are able to stop new malware, bots, and other sophisticated cyber attacks at the edge of the network.  Intelligence is a game changer in that sophisticated cyber attacks can now be stopped before they do damage."

Barrier1 has pioneered the method of Real Time Intelligence to Network Security. This industry first is unique in practice yet has proven to be more Effective, Accurate, Faster, and Affordable than any other network security appliance on the market today. In order to maintain a safe network, one must also have the ability to identify and stop never before seen events with a high degree of accuracy. This ability is no longer a request but a requirement.  Barrier1 has proven its superior approach on live networks for Education, Finance, Government, Health, Utility Companies, and others.
