HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Nov 29, 2011) - Network Box has recently received multiple honors and awards for its innovative security solutions.
Network Box captured top honors in the security category from the Asia Pacific Information Communications Technology Alliance (APICTA), held in Thailand. The international awards program recognizes the best in information communications technology. The company was named in this year's MIS Asia/The Strategic 100. That issue is dedicated to the top 100 information/communication technology solutions and service providers that are selected by leading enterprise technology practitioners and experts. Network Box also won two awards from IT Pro Magazine for its Z-Scan zero day anti-virus system and S-Scan web content filtering system. Lastly, Houston-based Network Box USA, the company's American arm, was also honored by Bank News for Z-Scan (an award winning zero-day, anti-virus system), as part of the trade publication's annual Innovative Solutions Awards.
"We're thrilled to be recognized globally by these leading trade and media organizations," said Network Box USA Chief Technology Officer Pierluigi Stella. "Network Box is a global corporation that continues to make a difference in the security space with features such as Z-Scan."
Utilizing state-of-the-art in-the-cloud technology, Z-Scan can react to zero-day malware up to 4,200 times faster than traditional anti-virus systems. By adapting the same system to the never-ending fight against spam, Network Box can respond to zero-day outbreaks of certain types of spam in just a few seconds, instead of the several hours typical in the Internet security industry.
The Z-Scan system operates by continually analyzing all the threat information obtained in real time from a network of more than 200,000 traps in the cloud that are poised 24/7. The Z-Scan network includes spam-traps, virus traps, in-house submissions, customer submissions, email and http statistics, and suspect samples. The Network Box anti-spam system detects more than 99% of the spam emails that come into the spam traps (http://response.network-box.com/services).
