San Bruno, CA (PRWEB) October 5, 2006
IronPort Systems announced today that Info Security Products Guide, a Silicon Valley Communications publication and the world’s leading publication on security-related products and technologies, has honored Ambika Gadre, IronPort Senior Director of Product Management, with the Shaping Info Security 2006 Industry Award. This prestigious industry award recognizes individuals and teams worldwide that have made the most positive impact on security technology in today’s highly sophisticated environment.
“A successful global security vendor innovates and outperforms in a dynamic industry only according to the talent of its people,” said Rick Justice, Chief Technology Editor with Info Security Products Guide. “We are proud to honor Ambika Gadre with this year’s Shaping Info Security 2006 award and to acknowledge her remarkable, timely contribution to both enterprise Web security and the users of security products and services worldwide.”
Ambika Gadre has had extensive experience leading product marketing and management teams at both hardware and software companies. At IronPort, customers approached Gadre and her team to tackle the spyware problem. Though it took significant investment to develop both a Layer 4 (L4) traffic monitor and a full application layer proxy (integrated into a single product), this approach is critical to fully address today’s issues and anticipate malware evolutions to come. In a world where malware is becoming increasingly sophisticated, multiple forms of malware are now being combined to create “blended threats” that increase the potency of overall attacks. Systems limited in approach are missing the goal and cannot provide complete protection from insidious Web-based threats.

IronPort is applying the same technology that made it the industry leader in stopping spam, to Web security. The IronPort S-Series, the industry's fastest Web security appliance, was developed because of the increased demand from enterprises to stop and combat spyware (one of the most significant corporate security issues today). Although a major threat, fewer than 10 percent of corporations have deployed perimeter spyware defenses. The speed, variety and maliciousness of spyware and other Web-based malware attacks have all highlighted the importance of a robust, secure platform to protect the enterprise network perimeter from such threats. The IronPort S-Series appliances combine a high-performance security platform with IronPort's exclusive Web Reputation technology and IronPort's breakthrough Dynamic Vectoring and Streaming™ (DVS) engine, a new scanning technology that enables fully integrated, rapid signature-based filtering.
