(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) London, UK - AlgoSec, the market leader for Network Security Policy Management, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named AlgoSec, a Gold winner of the 2013 Global Excellence Awards in Best Deployments and Case Studies in EMEA. The security industry celebrated its 9th Annual 2013 Global Excellence Awards in San Francisco by honoring excellence in every facet of the industry including products, people behind the successes and best companies.
More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2013 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners. Winners were announced during the awards dinner and presentation on February 27, 2013 in San Francisco attended by the finalists, judges and industry peers.
By providing security and operations teams with visibility and control of network environments through the intelligent automation of firewall policy management, the AlgoSec Security Management Suite easily meets the award criteria for cutting-edge technology. AlgoSec's solution automates firewall operations and change management, simplifies auditing and compliance, and delivers a tighter security policy across all leading traditional and next-generation firewalls, routers, VPNs, proxies and related security devices.
AlgoSec's innovation in network security policy management technology was well-illustrated in their customer case study submitted for this award. After implementing the AlgoSec Suite, BT had total control over the rule implementation process. BT was able to:
- Immediately track down rogue connectivity
- Gain instant visibility of high risk situations in the firewall policy
- Provide audit reports with the push of a button
Additionally, the AlgoSec Security Management Suite enabled BT engineers, who previously utilized manual processes to demonstrate compliance to auditors, to spend much less time on managing the firewall rule implementation process and focus more energy on improving the security of BT's infrastructure.
"Our ultimate goal is to deliver superior business value to our customers, so we're delighted to be a Gold winner for Info Security Products Guide for the 2013 Best Deployment and Case Studies in EMEA," said Nimmy Reichenberg, Vice President of Marketing, AlgoSec. "Successfully automating policy management to improve both security and business agility in a demanding organization such as BT is no easy feat, and we are dedicated to ensure the satisfaction of every single customer."
