Solera Networks Named Finalist in 2010 SC Magazine Awards for Best Computer Forensics Solution

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - December 9, 2009) - Solera Networks, a leader in the rapidly growing network forensics market, has been named a finalist in the 2010 SC Awards program in the category of "Best Computer Forensics Solution." Solera DS Network Forensics Appliances were named as a premier solution in the Readers Trust Award competition, which honors best-in-class security products and services.

The honor of being selected as a finalist comes shortly after the company just announced unprecedented growth in 2009. This growth is due to rapidly becoming one of the most recommended and requested network forensics solutions by organizations demanding high-performing, scalable and reliable security for complex high-speed networks.

"Solera DS Network Forensics Appliances are among today's most respected security products as chosen by our panel," said SC Magazine Editor-in-Chief Illena Armstrong. "Security is a key challenge for IT organizations and businesses worldwide and our readers recognize that companies like Solera Networks are helping them meet their security challenges."

To help security professionals actively identify the full context, including source and scope of a security incident within any network, Solera Networks recently unveiled Solera OS 4.0, the latest version of its flagship product that provides comprehensive active network forensics solutions for instant response when a security incident occurs.

"It is an honor to be recognized as a leading network forensics solution by SC Magazine and the industry," said Peter Schlampp, VP of Marketing and Product Management at Solera Networks. "With network forensics becoming one of the fastest growing segments within the security ecosystem, recognition in this category is a strong statement of our ability to deliver what customers need for swift and intelligent incident response, especially on today's ultra-fast 10Gb networks."

The Solera DS Network Forensics Appliance was selected from more than 600 entries submitted in more than 31 technology categories.

As the industry's preeminent awards program, the annual SC Awards has recognized security's key contributors and outstanding products for more than a decade. The SC Awards are designed to honor the professionals, companies and products that help fend off the myriad security threats confronted in today's corporate world. Individuals, brands and solutions recognized in the program address not only the security challenges prominent today, but also the emerging threat landscape of tomorrow.

Winners of this year's SC Awards will be announced at a gala dinner and award ceremony to be held in San Francisco on Tuesday, March 2, 2010.
