Corero’s First Line of Defense Selected as Gold and Bronze Winner in 2013 Golden Bridge Awards

Company’s DDoS and Cyber Threat Prevention Solution Recognized in “Innovations in Information Technology and Security” Categories

Hudson, MA – October 14, 2013 – Corero Network Security (LN: CNS), a leading provider of First Line of Defense® solutions for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and cyber threat protection, announced today that its First Line of Defense solution was selected for two 2013 Golden Bridge Awards, winning gold in the “Innovations for Medium Enterprises” category and bronze for “Innovations in Network Security.” The Golden Bridge awards recognize the best in organizational performance, innovations, products and services from every major industry in the world.

The Corero First Line of Defense prevents DDoS, zero-day and other malicious attack activity that can easily bypass traditional defenses from hitting the network by filtering and removing that attack traffic. As a result, legitimate traffic is not slowed down or blocked. The solution provides critical visibility while allowing the entire IT infrastructure to operate more efficiently; ultimately optimizing the performance of existing security devices, network applications and servers.

“As the cyber threat landscape continues to evolve, it is essential that organizations implement security solutions that protect their networks against malicious traffic that could impact critical business functions,” said Ashley Stephenson, CEO, Corero Network Security. “Corero’s First Line of Defense is utilized by companies around the world to defend their networks against today’s DDoS and targeted attacks, and this recognition is a testament to the value our technology delivers.”

By redefining the network perimeter, Corero’s First Line of Defense offers comprehensive protection in front of the firewall, defending against the broad spectrum of attack types. Complementary to Internet service providers, cloud protection providers and traditional firewall technologies, First Line of Defense is a comprehensive fail safe solution for intelligent, real-time protection against cyber-attacks.
