Corero’s First Line of Defense Solutions Win Multiple Awards from Network Products Guide

Corero Honored as Best IT Product and Service for Finance, Banking and Insurance Industries

HUDSON, MA, May 20, 2013 – Corero Network Security (LN: CNS), a leading provider of network security solutions to defend against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) and other unwanted traffic at the perimeter, announced today that Network Products Guide has named Corero’s First Line of Defense solution the “Best IT Products and Services for Finance, Banking and Insurance.”  The company also was awarded with the “Best IT Products and Services for Medium-Sized Enterprises.”

“We are pleased to be recognized by Network Products Guide as it reaffirms our position as the leading provider of IT Security Products and Services for enterprises in finance, banking and insurance,” said Corero CEO Ashley Stephenson.  “A recent Corero-sponsored third party survey, found that more than two-thirds of banks suffered at least one DDoS attack in the last 12 months. This award is a testament to Corero’s commitment to protecting customers’ networks against these types of malicious attacks.”

These industry and peer recognitions from Network Products Guide, the industry’s leading technology research and advisory guide, are the world's premier information technology awards honoring achievements and recognitions in every facet of the IT industry.

“Now in its 8th year, the Network Products Guide Hot Companies and Best Awards recognize excellence in every facet of the network security industry,” said Rake Narang, editor-in-chief of Info Security Products Guide. “Corero is an industry innovator that has set the bar high with its First Line of Defense technology. Combating DDoS attacks, zero-day exploits and other unwanted traffic at the perimeter which is being bypassed by traditional technologies, Corero was selected as the best security product for enterprises in finance, banking and insurance based on its ability to block these malicious attacks and prevent critical business disruptions.”

The Corero First Line of Defense stops DDoS, zero-day, server targeted and other malicious attack activity that easily bypasses traditional defenses, including firewalls, by filtering and removing attack traffic before it hits the network.  As a result, legitimate customer traffic is not slowed down or blocked. This provides critical visibility while allowing the entire IT infrastructure to operate more efficiently, optimizing the performance of existing security devices, network applications and servers and ensures business continuity.
