Recognizing Innovation During the RSA® Conference 2017

Hillstone Networks announced today that Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine and media partner of the RSA® Conference 2017, has named the Hillstone Networks server Breach Detection System (sBDS), winner of the Editor’s Choice in Breach Detection Solutions. In addition, Hillstone Networks won The Hot Company in Data Center Security Solutions for 2017 with its Twin-Mode Firewall Solution for the Redundant Data Centers.

“We’re thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that’s why Hillstone Networks has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine. Some of the best INFOSEC defenses come from these kinds of forward thinking players who think outside of the box,” said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.

The Hillstone sBDS solution is a key component of Hillstone’s Intranet security portfolio, protecting critical assets such as servers, and leveraging Hillstone’ unique behavior-based threat detection technology to detect compromised hosts, as well as threats within the intranet. Deployed in front of critical servers, it monitors behavior and establishes a behavioral baseline. When the pattern changes, the advanced behavior detection engine alerts the other parallel engines of the event, where it is quickly pinpointed, characterized, and the IT security team is notified of the action with all of the pertinent information.

Hillstone Twin-Mode firewall failover for Redundant Data Centers addresses traditional firewall failover issues. Hillstone’s patented twin-mode failover technology automatically synchronizes firewall configurations and sessions between firewalls in redundant data centers, provides security to asymmetric flows across data centers, achieves full visibility and security into all datacenter-to-datacenter traffic across DCI links, and ensures business continuity for data center customers.

“CDM’s recognition of Hillstone as an innovative company further validates our company as an innovator in delivering a layered defense approach to network security.” Said Lingling Zhang, VP of Product Management and Marketing, at Hillstone Networks. “This industry honor is the greatest endorsement to the fact that our firewall platform and sBDS is ahead of the curve when it comes to the best-of-the-best products that can provide the most optimal security posture.“
