M86 Security Wins 2010 Tech & Learning Award of Excellence

M86 Web Filter and Reporter Honored in Best New Product Category in Publication's 28th Annual Award Program Recognizing Outstanding Education Technology Products

ORANGE, CA--(Marketwire - November 10, 2010) -  M86 Security, the global expert in real-time Web and email threat protection, is proud to announce it has been honored by Tech & Learning magazine with a prestigious Award of Excellence in the publication's 28th annual awards program aimed at saluting outstanding education technology products. The M86 Web Filter and Reporter, a new solution introduced by M86 earlier this year, was recognized by the judges in the best "new product" category for breaking ground and innovation in the edtech market.

The M86 Web Filter and Reporter (WFR) offers a cost-effective means for securing the network and mitigating the risks of malware, spam, cyberbullying, anonymous proxies as well as Web 2.0 applications through one single appliance.

"Now that the use of technology in schools is no longer a novelty but a reality, it's no longer about the promise of what a product can do; it's about the proof," said Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director for NewBay Media's Tech & Learning Group. "This year's Award of Excellence products were tested by Ed Tech experts from the New York City Department of Education and the University of Michigan, our top T&L advisors, and more. These companies can be proud that their products were selected as winners by this prestigious team of judges."

"M86 has a long history of partnering with schools who use our tools to meet the needs of not only their staff, but their student and parent communities to ensure a collaborative, yet safe computing environment," said William Kilmer, Chief Marketing Officer, M86 Security. "Schools are among the most prolific users of technology today, but they also face some of the most concerning challenges, including the safe use of social networks and other best practices that can help set the foundation for smart and productive use of the Internet. We are honored that our M86 Web Filter and Reporter has been recognized among the elite in technology for the education market and we look forward to continuing to innovate and serving K-12 leaders and educators." 

Tech & Learning's Awards of Excellence program has been recognizing outstanding Ed Tech curriculum products for nearly three decades. This year's winners were selected by a panel of more than 30 educators, who tested more than 140 entries. Among the high-quality offerings being honored are products addressing management, safety, communication, differentiated learning, assessment, and other key areas in education. Detailed descriptions and judges' comments will be featured in the December 2010 Awards Issue of Tech & Learning.
