San Jose, CA (PressExposure) May 19, 2009 -- Engate Technology Corporation, a leading supplier of proactive botnet, phish, virus and email security solutions, today announced that Network Products Guide, the industryâs leading publication on information technologies and solutions has named Engateâs Reputation Network Profiling technology a winner of the 2009 Product Innovation Award. This annually venerated award honors vendors from all over the world with innovative and ground-breaking products.
"We congratulate Engate as this award underscores their success in helping OEM partners, service providers and enterprises around the world to secure their networks, or their customerâs networks, from dangerous messaging abuse," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief of Network Products Guide. "Organizations are faced with a deluge of botnet-based attacks used by criminals to propagate malicious threats, spam, phish, viruses and fraud scams. This recognition is a testament to Engateâs innovation in stopping known and unknown threats before they launch."
âNetwork Products Guideâs recognition of Engate further validates our security solutions as excellence-in-class and ahead of the curve,â said Wil Cochran, CEO, Engate Technology. âProduct innovation is key to our continued commitment in meeting our customerâs needs and helping them proactively protect their privacy and IT assets from todayâs dangerous and rapidly evolving botnet threats."
Proactive Security Solutions for Enterprises and Service Providers Engateâs security appliances and hosted security service proactively protect organizations from botnet threats, phish, viruses, spam and blended web/email attacks. Engate leverages its proprietary reputation network profiling technology to assess entire networks including all illicit and legitimate hosts in the subnet. Using this in-depth analysis, Engate preemptively stops illicit hosts that are distributing threats. Moreover, Engate detects clean/new hosts that are compromised and proactively stops these threats at the connection level, before it reaches the gateway and has a chance to damage IT resources, steal intellectual property, propagate threats, and disrupt business productivity.
Next Generation Reputation Network Profiling Technology for OEM Partners With more than six years of operational experience collecting and analyzing data on global networks, Engateâs reputation network profiling technology empowers strategic OEM partners to take advantage of the permanent reputation of over 400 million âgood and badâ IPâs in Engateâs 16,000 rules database â known as GlobalRulesâ¢. By profiling entire networks beyond infected hosts, Engate has built a repository of intelligence on potential and unknown hosts that may become infected.
This unique intelligence on unknown threats is a critical component to enhancing an OEM partnerâs security portfolio today -- as well as in the future â particularly as unknown threats continue to rise due to the growth of botnets. When compared to reactive, first generation reputation products that track only 4-5 million âbadâ IPs that constantly change their reputations, Engate gives OEM partners an advantage over competitors that do not offer a proactive approach on unknown senders.
