Techworld award nomination for StoneGate

Stonesoft Networks : 27 May, 2008  (New Product)
Network intrusion prevention and detection technology from Stonesoft nominated in product of the year category by Techworld
Stonesoft is continuing its run of product success with a nomination for a coveted Techworld award. StoneGate with IPS has been nominated in the category; Techworld 2008 IPS/IDS Product of the Year.

The product that has been put forward for the award, StoneGate IPS/IDS (Intrusion Prevention/Detection System), defends networks by enabling comprehensive, multi-dimensional network security, providing intelligent defence throughout the enterprise network. Launched in May 2007 (for IPS 4.0 software) and January of this year for IPS hardware appliances, the StoneGate IPS protects vulnerable applications and operating systems from network threats against client and server vulnerabilities in the Intranet and DMZ (Demilitarized Zone). StoneGate IPS uses multiple analysis techniques to identify and prevent network traffic abuse, including DoC (Denial of Service) attacks and communications from unwanted applications such as Peer-to-Peer and streaming media.

StoneGate IPS, firewall, and VPN are designed to work together. The remote upgrade feature and centralised IPS configuration, along with incident handling, backup and restore functions lighten the IT administrator's daily routines. Dynamic blacklists to firewall and IPS can be used to quarantine hosts or networks that have been detected to contain worms or otherwise harmful traffic.

Ashish Patel, sales director for UK and Ireland commented: "It's fantastic that Stonesoft has been recognised for the shortlist for the Techworld awards this year. StoneGate IPS is a well crafted product that proves our commitment to developing high quality and innovative technology and it is a great endorsement for the team and our continued investment and leadership in the network security area. All businesses nowadays rely heavily on network security in order to remain competitive and function on a day-to-day basis. Stonesoft allows businesses to manage risks, eliminate threats and keep information flowing securely."

The winners are to be announced at a gala dinner on Wednesday 11th June 2008 at Indig02 at the 02.
