HERNDON, Va., Jan. 28, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foreground Security announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named the company's Managed Security Services and Training Services as finalists for the 10th Annual 2014 Global Excellence Awards in the "Best Security Service" and "Security Training and Educational Programs" categories. These prestigious global awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping raise the bar in all areas of security and technologies.

Recognized for excellence within the security service market, Foreground's intelligence-driven, customized Managed Security Services integrate with customers' existing security infrastructure while its analysts apply their diverse expertise to seek out suspicious behavior and initiate action to mitigate the impact of cyber threats. The company's predictive analysis engine can spot patterns and precursors before emerging attacks can do harm, allowing customers to maintain data and brand integrity, while seamlessly supporting critical functions. Foreground's Managed Security Services approach customizes support to each client's needs to identify what a threat's footprint looks like in advance and then stops suspicious activity before it leads to a damaging compromise.

"Foreground has earned a reputation for taking an active, head-on approach to improving our customers' security postures. We are proud to have Foreground Security's Managed Security Service and Training Services named finalists by Info Security Products Guide as it underscores our leadership in these markets," said David Amsler, President and CIO, Foreground Security. "Our Managed Security Services bring the industry's sharpest talent to the front lines of the threat landscape while our in-depth, immersive Training Services ensure that customers' security teams are continually prepared to defend their most sensitive assets."

Similarly known industry-wide for training excellence, Foreground's Training Services were also named a finalist in the Security Training and Educational Programs category. Because Foreground's instruction formats mirror trainees' real-life IT network experiences, clients' security professionals can leverage company-specific security information and identify issues in their environment, with visibility into actual users and their activities. Through Foreground's training, students learn how to investigate a compromise, analyze key evidence, and deploy tools, methodologies and techniques to successfully design, secure and test networks to strengthen their security posture.

Winners will be announced in San Francisco on February 24, 2014 during the annual awards dinner and presentation. For a complete listing of finalists, please visit:
