http://www.verniernetworks.com - Vernier NetworksÂ®, developer of the industryÂs only clientless network access management products that enable enterprises to assure business continuity; announced that its enterprise network security solution, EdgeWall, has captured eWEEKÂs Fifth Annual Excellence Award in the ÂNetwork Data-stream ProtectionÂ category and was selected from among hundreds of entries.
ÂWe are honored to receive the eWEEK Excellence Award as it is further validation of the clientless approach we have taken to network access management and endpoint integrity,Â said Simon Khalaf, president and CEO of Vernier Networks. ÂOrganizations that have adopted EdgeWall have immediately increased their internal network security without increasing their overall systems management cost.Â
Deployed at the edge of the network, VernierÂs EdgeWall enables companies to dynamically increase enterprise network security as threat levels increase by screening users and devices, restricting access, inspecting traffic for worms and viruses and enforcing access policy.
"The opportunities created by new technology, and by customers' interest in new ways of using those tools to do business, are confronting new challenges of security and manageability,Â said eWEEK editor-in-chief Eric Lundquist. ÂWe take pride in offering eWEEK's readers recommendations for products that respond to these complex and dynamic demands."
The eWEEK Excellence Awards program honors the best, most innovative enterprise products and services that were announced in 2004 and released by the end of the first quarter of 2005. The judges, a panel of experts including eWEEK Labs analysts and eWEEK corporate partners, concluded that VernierÂs EdgeWall Âstood tall as the winner in a formidable field of entriesÂ because of its Âpowerful combination of user, traffic and endpoint controls.Â
Winners will be honored at a special ceremony on April 26, 2005 at The Westin Copley Place in Boston. All of the winning products in this yearÂs program were announced in a special report appearing in the April 11 issue of eWEEK and at http://www.eweek.com.
