Narus Wins Award for Best Real-Time Dynamic Network Analysis and Forensics Solution

GSN's Homeland Security Award Honors Company That Leads Industry in Fighting Cyber Crime

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - November 9, 2010) -  Narus, the leader in real-time traffic intelligence for protecting governments, service providers and enterprises against cyber threats and the risks of doing business in cyber space, announced today that it has won the Government Security News (GSN) 2010 Homeland Security Award for Best Real-Time Dynamic Network Analysis and Forensics. The award program salutes dedicated government officials who have created effective security programs. It also recognizes vendors of IT that have introduced innovative security technologies and products that protect the United States, its infrastructure and its citizens.

"Narus has consistently proven its innovative technology and commitment to supporting the rapidly evolving cyber security needs of its customers," said Adrian Courtenay, managing partner at GSN. "We're proud to honor Narus as one of our Homeland Security Award winners -- a network of individuals and organizations dedicated to ensuring the safety of the United States."

As a leading technology and software company, Narus enables service providers, government organizations, critical infrastructure, and major corporations to manage and protect their large distributed IP networks against cyber threats through its real-time traffic intelligence technology and patented analytics -- all found in Narus' flagship product, NarusInsight. Using NarusInsight, network and security operators obtain real-time situational awareness of the traffic traversing their networks by seeing and understanding the changing behavior or "dynamic DNA" of the network. They can then use the information to act quickly to mitigate malicious attacks and optimize network assets. NarusInsight is a complement to traditional signature-based approaches such as firewalls, malware protection and IPS/IDS systems, and is part of a "holistic" multi-layered approach to protecting valuable network assets and information residing on those networks.

"We're honored to receive recognition from such a well-respected publication as Government Security News. The award offers us an opportunity to highlight our vision of a new model to address cyber security needs," said Greg Oslan, CEO of Narus. "Technology, of course, is a necessary first step in achieving this model. Yet, that alone is not sufficient. The next step is to encourage the industry to come together as a whole -- as an ecosystem -- to address gaps in technology, train new cyber warriors, and develop processes that are critical to overcoming cyber crime."

Winners of the Homeland Security Awards were announced November 8, 2010 at a gala hosted by GSN and attended by the government's and industry's most visible and influential leaders.
