Spikes Security Wins 2015 Govies Award From 1105 Media

Leading Government IT Publication Security Products & Security Today Recognizes Spikes Security Browser Isolation Technology, Which Stops Browser-Borne Malware From Entering Corporate Networks

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2015) - Spikes Security, the isolation security company, today announced that the company has been selected by 1105 Media, publishers of Security Products and Security-Today.com, as winner of a 2015 Govies Government Security Award in the Intrusion Detection and Prevention Solutions category.

The Spikes Security Browser Isolation System addresses all malicious web threats, stopping zero-day attacks, malvertising attacks, transparent drive-by downloads and other complex web threats. Spikes Security's browser isolation technology was reviewed and selected for the publication's "Govies" Government Security Awards competition, which recognizes outstanding government security products in a variety of categories, based on criteria such as: Features, Innovation, User Friendliness, Interoperability, Quality, Design, Market Opportunity, Impact in the Security Industry, Technical Advances and Scalability.

Spikes Security CEO, CTO and Founder Branden Spikes noted: "It is no longer necessary for cyber security leaders to consider the best malware defense to be obsolete detection mechanisms and marginally quicker response time. We've solved the most important and challenging cyber security problem with our ability to isolate browsers from malware, and we're excited about the impact this will have on the security of our critical infrastructure, government networks, and the future adoption of web services. We are honored by 1105 Media's recognition of Spikes Security, and its recognition of the importance of this issue."

"It's exciting to have the opportunity to honor so many outstanding government security products," said Ralph C. Jensen, editor-in-chief of Security Products. "Government security is more important than ever, and ISC West is an ideal venue for companies to show off their products to the industry."

In addition to the 2015 Govies, Spikes Security has received several recent industry recognitions and awards such as a 2015 MVP Award from Computer Technology Review. Its recent study, "The Challenges of Preventing Browser-Borne Malware," conducted with the prestigious Ponemon Institute, revealed that browser-borne malware infections are increasing, while the effectiveness of long-trusted detection technologies is declining according to a sweeping survey of IT and security professionals.

Spikes Security will be demonstrating its browser security solution at the RSA Conference, Apr. 20-24 in San Francisco, Booth #S2144.
