M86 Security Honored in SC Magazine's Innovators 2010 Issue of Top Security Companies

Company Saluted as Content Management Innovator in Security Infrastructure Category

ORANGE, CA--(Marketwire - December 13, 2010) - M86 Security, the global expert in real-time Web and email threat protection, has been recognized in the Security Infrastructure category featured in SC Magazine's Innovators 2010 special section in the publication's December issue.

The annual report looks at those companies setting benchmarks in their respective product areas. M86 was singled out for solving a "persistent and difficult problem set -- hybrid approach to delivering content management."

SC Magazine editors explain that the Security Infrastructure category "is experiencing some convergence, but more than anything else it is morphing to meet the needs of ever-increasingly regulated industries."

M86, with its Secure Web Gateway flagship product, also was recognized for its greatest strength: "innovative technology, an organization with a culture of innovation and the M86 Security Labs, one of the best in the business." The SC Magazine report notes that "M86 technology focuses on web security as a single channel of protection that uses such innovative technologies as real-time code analysis to determine the intent of the code."

"Our commitment to leading the way in real-time Web and email protection at the gateway is at the core of how we help our customers manage their content," says William Kilmer, Chief Marketing Officer, M86 Security. "Increasingly sophisticated and complex security threats are always on the horizon, so we can never sit back and be satisfied that our work is done."

SC Magazine editors note that in a crowded market space, M86's innovative marketing strategy has set it apart, according to the report, making "an important niche for themselves, global in scope and stable enough to be credible." The report points out that as "the physical product market and the cloud-based services market are important, M86 addresses both" through a "hybrid web solution that can be delivered both at an organization's headquarters using a hardware appliance, and for its outlying branches and remote workers using the cloud with no equipment installed on premises."

Criteria used by SC Labs to select the 2010 crop of innovators include taking the business of security as seriously as the technology of security; adopting an innovative approach to meeting market needs, whether through expansion or convergence; and having a "positive, pro-customer attitude."
