M86 Security Named a GSN Homeland Security Award Finalist

M86 Secure Web Gateway Recognized in "Best Anti-Malware" Solution Category

ORANGE, CA--(Marketwire - October 21, 2010) - M86 Security, the global expert in real-time Web and email threat protection, today announced that its Secure Web Gateway (SWG) solution has been selected as a finalist by GSN: Government Security News in the publication's second annual homeland security awards program. M86 Security's SWG was named as a finalist in the "best anti-malware" product category.

Businesses and government agencies continue to turn to M86 Security in the battle against today's Web-based threats. The M86 Secure Web Gateway protects organizations against Web attacks by utilizing patented, real-time code analysis technologies. Unlike competitors that rely on matching malicious code to a known signature or URL to a database of categories, the M86 Secure Web Gateway is unique in its ability to analyze code embedded within Web content. It understands its intentions in real-time regardless of the URL source or reputation, even when the code is obfuscated. In addition, its Dynamic Web Repair technology strips out the malware to deliver the safe Web content to the user, ensuring continued productivity.

"In the last year, the U.S. government has stepped up its efforts in the fight against cybercrime for good reason," said William Kilmer, chief marketing officer at M86 Security. "Many of today's threats are concerning to government agencies and their IT departments and they realize that a reactive approach is no longer feasible in today's dynamic and ever-evolving threat landscape. We are honored to be recognized by GSN for our efforts in helping government agencies defend their networks against cyber-attacks and look forward to continuing to work with many of today's leading U.S. agencies on this important effort." 

The GSN Homeland Security Awards were created by GSN: Government Security News to salute dedicated officials and their agencies and departments at federal, state and local levels of government who have created effective and cost-efficient security programs. They were also created to salute the outstanding vendors of IT and physical security products who have introduced the innovative technologies and products that protect our nation and its people 24/7. The winners will be presented their awards at a gala awards dinner on the evening of Monday, November 8, at the JW Marriott Hotel in downtown Washington, D.C.
