All of this year's entrants truly leverage the latest technologies and computing models to provide solutions that effectively align with business needs
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) June 18, 2008
Lumension Security™, Inc., a leading global security management company, today announced that its Sanctuary 4.2 endpoint security suite has been named the winner in eWeek's Eighth Annual Excellence Awards Program, in the Security category. Sanctuary is recognized for its deep and powerful endpoint protection solution that utilizes whitelists and strong lock-down controls to ensure only IT-sanctioned applications are running on employee computers.
"All of this year's entrants truly leverage the latest technologies and computing models to provide solutions that effectively align with business needs," said Debra Donston, eWEEK editor. "The eWEEK Excellence Awards judges were duly impressed."
"We are honored to be recognized by eWeek for our innovations and continued excellence in this area of data protection and endpoint security," said Mike Wittig, president and CTO at Lumension Security. "This recognition is a testament to the mounting sentiment among IT administrators across all industries that traditional, reactive solutions no longer provide the most effective protection against today's sophisticated threats. At Lumension, we're driving the next-generation security model by combining powerful whitelisting technology with data protection solution for optimal security at a lower cost while enabling business productivity."
According to eWEEK, "The security strategy that many experts now see as the best option for protecting corporate systems is the lock-down approach--where no code or application can run that hasn't been given explicit permission to run. This is the approach that is taken by Lumension Security's Sanctuary 4.2. Sanctuary is a deep and powerful endpoint protection solution that utilizes whitelists and strong lock-down controls to ensure only IT-sanctioned apps are running on employee computers."

This year's nominees were judged based on the following criteria: Innovation; Practical integration of emerging technologies; Suitability to task; Cost effectiveness; Potential for helping companies create business efficiencies; Manageability; Potential for helping companies develop competitive advantage; and Secureability.
