Global DataGuard Named as Finalist in the 2012 Golden Bridge Awards for Cloud Security Innovations
ASM Recognized Once Again as Innovative Technology for Virtualized Unified Security Environments
Addison, TX (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
Global DataGuard®, the premier provider of network behavior analysis-based (NBA) Unified Enterprise Security (UES) and Unified Enterprise Cloud Security (UECS), has been recognized, for the second year in a row, as a finalist in the Annual 2012 Golden Bridge Awards for its emergent behavior-enhanced All-n-One Security Module (ASM) for public, private and hybrid cloud environments.
The coveted annual Golden Bridge Awards program with active participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, encompasses the world´s best in organizational performance, products and services, innovations, executives and management teams, women in business and the professions, case studies and successful deployments, public relations and marketing campaigns, product management, websites, blogs, white-papers, videos, advertisements, creativity, partner programs, and customer satisfaction programs from every major industry in the world.
The emergent behavior-enhanced All-n-One Security Module is a high performance virtual server built specifically for Global DataGuard´s VMware-enabled security applications — emergent behavior-enhanced Network Behavior Analysis and Correlation, Intrusion Detection and Prevention, Vulnerability Scanning and Management, prioritized Threat Management for network, global and vendor threats & vulnerabilities, Security and Event Log Management and Monitoring, and Network Access and Policy Monitoring. The ASM includes a complete managed security service infrastructure with a unified console and a built-in ticketing system. The ASM can provide unified security for SMB, SME and LME networks that encompass public, private and hybrid cloud environments as well as traditional LAN/WAN environments.
“The ASM was the first hardware appliance of its kind to enable businesses to so easily provision such a robust network security solution,” said Scott Paly, CEO of Global DataGuard. This makes the ASM a highly cost-effective and simple to use solution for any size business with mixed on-premise/cloud network environments. It reduces costs by provisioning necessary security applications from a single vendor, by using an underlying, adaptive architecture to fully integrate the multiple security applications so that a company´s IT staff doesn´t waste valuable resources trying to connect the dots between different security products and platforms (i.e., it streamlines resources and time dedicated to system configuration and administration). It also lowers hardware, power, and cooling costs by utilizing a shared virtualized infrastructure and driving higher hardware utilization rates. The ASM simplifies installation and systems can be running and available within minutes. It can be loaded with any combination of Global DataGuard´s VMware-enabled security applications — from a single module to a fully integrated security system — based on a customer´s specific business and network requirements. Security modules include: a master control unit (unified console); multiple intrusion detection and prevention sensors (IDS/IPS); network behavior analysis & correlation software; an on-demand, full vulnerability management system; a SIEM/ log and event analysis and management system; a prioritized threat manager for network, global, and vendor threats and vulnerabilities; and a behavioral-based network access and policy management system.
