For the second year in a row, Bradford Networks' Network Sentry has been recognized as a top product in the Reader Trust Award competition, which honors best-in-class security products and services, and is selected by a panel of readers who represent the circulation of SC Magazine. The winner will be announced at the 2013 SC Awards U.S. ceremony to be held on Feb. 26, 2013 in San Francisco.
"This award is especially meaningful to us because it is chosen by the readers of SC Magazine, end-users who face continually evolving network security challenges in the BYOD era, on a day-to-day basis," said Tom Murphy, CMO, Bradford Networks. "Our solution is designed to mitigate network security risks, which are often exacerbated by BYOD. We are therefore delighted that the depth and breadth of our solution, its manageability, ease of-use, scalability and integration capabilities with leading mobility and security technology vendors, has been recognized by our customers on the front lines."
Network Sentry continues to be honored for its ability to deliver complete network visibility and control in a BYOD environment.
