SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Hillstone Networks, a leading provider of network security solutions, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry’s leading information security research and advisory guide, has named the company a finalist for the 12th Annual 2016 Global Excellence Awards. Hillstone Networks is nominated in the “Firewalls” category for its Intelligent Next Generation Firewall (iNGFW) solution that continuously monitors the network for anomalous network behavior and security breaches. Winners will be honored in San Francisco on February 29, 2016 during the annual awards dinner and presentation.
“Enterprise security teams today face an unrelenting challenge of keeping their networks safe from attacks,” says Tim Liu, Hillstone Networks Chief Technology Officer. “Our Intelligent Next Generation Firewall solution aids in that quest with a continuous threat defense that not only provides continuous network monitoring, but also offers critical, contextual information about potential threats, empowering security administrators to quickly target and remediate threats before it’s too late. To be nominated for a 2016 Global Excellence Award is an honor and is validation of our efforts to provide enterprises with unparalleled network protection.”
Based on machine learning technologies such as statistical clustering and vector analysis, the iNGFW targets breaches and detects anomalous network behavior. It allows security administrators to discover and mitigate malicious security events within minutes of an attack. The platform also includes rich forensic tools that continuously assess the state of the network and help determine the root cause of attacks. The Hillstone software provides an ongoing Network Risk Index that provides instant situational awareness, giving administrators real-time visibility into network and application integrity.
The Global Excellence Awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, groundbreaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies. The annual awards ceremony is held in conjunction with the start of the RSA Security Conference.
