SkyRecon StormShield Called "An Impressive Security Tool" in eWeek Review

Dover, MA (PressExposure) November 20, 2008 -- SkyRecon Systems (, the premier provider of integrated, proactive endpoint security solutions, today announced that its StormShield Security Suite received a superb review in the popular trade publication eWeek. The review, written by Matthew Sarrel, CISSP, opened by stating, “SkyRecon's StormShield endpoint protection solution is remarkably flexible when compared to other centrally managed endpoint protection solutions available today.”

The review also calls out SkyRecon StormShield’s “unrivaled” endpoint security policy management and enforcement, the inclusion of “top-notch” anti-malware software that “works like a charm,” and StormShield’s “ability to test for multiple conditions and then apply sophisticated remediation techniques,” saying this makes SkyRecon StormShield “almost infinitely extensible.” SkyRecon StormShield is compared favorably to the “big guys” such as McAfee, Symantec, and Trend Micro.

"This review is the perfect affirmation of our decision years ago to design and build our unique, kernel-based StormShield client framework which enables StormShield to provide multiple, collaborative endpoint protection layers, increasing the breadth and depth of security while keeping the client footprint small and enabling them to be dynamically controlled through risk-based policies," said Ravy Truchot, SkyRecon CEO. "We are always striving to provide the highest level of business-enabling security and control for our customers, giving them the tools to improve their overall security posture in ways that support their business operations; the eWeek review shows that we are achieving that."
