Product Innovation Award For Secure Web Gateway
Black Box has announced that one of its most exciting new products, Optinet, has received a 2010 Product Innovation Award from Network Products Guide.

This distinguished annual award recognizes and honors vendors, large and small, from all over the world with innovative and ground-breaking products that are bringing essential and incremental changes and are setting the bar higher for others in all areas of information technology.

Optinet is an advanced secure Web gateway appliance that optimizes an organization's Internet connection. It can be used to prioritize business-critical traffic and de-emphasize or even eliminate non-critical traffic. It enables bandwidth allocation at the corporate department or user level and provides detailed reports on usage, ensuring the best use of available bandwidth. Benefits include: the allocation of more bandwidth to mission-critical sites and hosted applications; limiting non-critical traffic use by specific sites, users, or groups; and deep-packet inspection, which enables management of HTTPS traffic, too. Plus, Optinet blocks dangerous anonymous proxies.

"The 2010 Product Innovation Award from Network Products Guide confirms our commitment to developing new and innovative solutions to solve our customers' technology challenges," said Terry Blakemore, President and CEO of Black Box. "US companies lose billions of dollars in productivity because of inappropriate Internet use by their employees at work. Optinet is a one-box solution that can help them recoup those dollars."

"Innovation is not just about new products alone," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief at Network Products Guide. "To succeed, companies need to see innovation not as a one-time errand, but as something that has to be continuously evolved and improved upon over and over again. This requires putting greater focus on customer needs and making innovation the center of a company's way of developing better solutions. Innovative products such as Optinet are bringing improvements in Internet filtering and bandwidth management."
