Corero First Line of Defense Receives Two Info Security Global Excellence Awards

Company’s DDoS Defense System Recognized in “Security Products and Solutions for Medium Enterprises” and “Security Products for Finance and Banking” Categories

Hudson, MA – March 6, 2014 – Corero Network Security (LSE: CNS), a leading provider of First Line of Defense® security solutions, today announced that its DDoS Defense technology for the Enterprise was selected for two 2014 Info Security Global Excellence Awards. The Corero First Line of Defense solution received silver in the “Security Products and Solutions for Medium Enterprises” category and bronze in “Security Products for Finance and Banking.” The Info Security Global Excellence Awards recognize the IT and security vendors that are helping set the bar higher in all areas of security and technology.

The Corero DDoS Defense System is an organization’s First Line of Defense against a continuously evolving spectrum of DDoS attacks and cyber threats that have the potential to impact any Internet connected business. The purpose-built solution prevents attacks from impacting the network and disrupting business operations by detecting, analyzing and mitigating malicious traffic before it reaches traditional IT security infrastructure devices. Preventing access to the network by untrusted and unwanted traffic leaves enterprise networks at a reduced risk of having their Web presence taken down or compromised. It provides organizations with critical visibility while allowing their entire IT infrastructure to operate more efficiently, and as a result, delivers improved performance, efficiency and effectiveness for customers’ defense-in-depth security technologies.

“With the increasing complexity and sophistication of today’s cyber attacks, organizations cannot afford to take a reactive approach to security. They must proactively implement the most effective solutions that will continuously safeguard their networks from unwanted threats and of course, stay within a finite budget,” said Ashley Stephenson, CEO, Corero Network Security. “We are proud to be recognized for our leadership and delivery of solutions that work around the clock to protect organizations against DDoS attacks and other cyber threats. We look forward to continuing to drive the industry forward, with products and services that enhance defense-in-depth security architectures to address the dynamic and evolving cybersecurity risks facing every organization that depends on the Internet.”

Complementary to on-demand cloud based DDoS protection and existing firewall technologies, the Corero First Line of Defense solution for the Enterprise is a comprehensive always-on solution for intelligent, real-time protection against cyber-attacks.
