TippingPoint reaches finals of Homeland Security Awards

TippingPoint : 15 October, 2009  (Company News)
Data packet filtering system for extracting malicious code nominated for Homeland Security Award
TippingPoint has announced that Government Security News (GSN) has selected the TippingPoint Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) as a finalist for the Homeland Security Awards competition. A panel of independent judges evaluated hundreds of entries and selected TippingPoint as a finalist in the IPS/IDS category.

The Homeland Security Awards were developed to honour vendors in IT and physical security who have researched, developed and supplied innovative security solutions during the past year, as well as government officials at federal, state and local levels who have created and executed effective security programs.

"We received an extraordinary number of entries," said Adrian Courtenay, a managing director of World Business Media, LLC, the owner of GSN: Government Security News. 'We have carefully reviewed each entry and are now very pleased to announce an exceptionally strong field of finalists."

The TippingPoint IPS monitors data packets passing through the network and determines whether they are legitimate or malicious. Legitimate data packets pass through uninterrupted. However, malicious content is filtered based upon the actions dictated by the organization and can be blocked immediately. This instantaneous form of protection is the most effective means of preventing attacks from ever reaching their targets.

"Government entities are being targeted for cyber attacks at an alarming rate. We have spent the last several years customizing and honing our filter sets for a number of organizations in this space," said James Collinge, director of product management for TippingPoint. "It is an honor to be named as a finalist for this award and to have these efforts recognized by GSN and the judges on the award committee."

Winners will be announced at a gala dinner at the Roosevelt Hotel in midtown Manhattan on Tuesday, October 27, 2009.
