SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2015) - Vectra® Networks, the leader in real-time detection of in-progress cyber-attacks, today announced it has won the Gold Award in the 7th annual Golden Bridge Awards program in the Security Software Innovations awards category.

The coveted annual Golden Bridge Awards program encompasses the world's best in organizational performance, innovations, products and services, executives and management teams, women in business and the professions, innovations, case studies, product management, public relations and marketing campaigns, and customer satisfaction programs from every major industry in the world.

"We are honored to be recognized with the Gold Award for security software innovation," said Mike Banic, Vectra vice president of marketing. "The S-series sensors released earlier this year extend our security software's ability to automatically detect cyber attacks within networks at far-flung remote locations or on internal segments."

More than 40 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2015 Golden Bridge Awards winners. The winners were honored during an awards dinner and presentation earlier this week, attended by the finalists, industry leaders and judges.

Vectra Networks' advanced persistent threat (APT) defense software picks up where perimeter security leaves off by providing deep, continuous analysis of both internal and Internet-bound network traffic to automatically detect all phases of a breach as attackers attempt to spy, spread, and steal within a network.
