CALGARY, Alberta, Feb. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Wedge Networks, the leader in high performance network-based Web security solutions, announced today that the Wedge BeSecure AntiMalware Gateway Series was named the winner in the Annual Info Security Products Guide 2011 Global Excellence Awards, in the category of Best Network Security Product. This prestigious global award recognizes Wedge Networks for its groundbreaking wire-speed full inspection security platform.
"With the increased threat of attacks from viruses, Trojans, worms and spyware, traditional desktop-based anti-virus software does not provide enough protection, particularly in environments with high traffic, high bandwidth networks," said Hongwen Zhang, President and CEO of Wedge Networks. "It is an honor to be recognized in this distinguished industry awards program and it further demonstrates our leadership in providing multi-layer protection to help organizations stay ahead of these threats."
The Wedge Networks BeSecure appliance provides complete network protection, ensuring clean content is delivered to all endpoints including desktops, laptops, mobile devices and servers for large enterprises, ISPs, fixed and mobile operators worldwide. It prevents these attacks by intercepting Web traffic at the application network layer, scanning the traffic at multi gigabit speeds and blocking malicious attacks.
Utilizing the patented WedgeOS, the BeSecure appliance scans complete objects in real-time, accesses and employs full signature databases, heuristic analysis and Deep Content Inspection to provide increased security protection to a market that previously lacked security options. This nomination further recognizes Wedge's unique ability to deploy accurate protection in complex networks dealing with massive traffic volumes.
