HERNDON, Va., March 16, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foreground Security, a cyber security consulting, training and services firm, today announced that RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE:EMC), has recognized Foreground's leadership in providing managed security services and other support to the companies' joint clients by presenting Foreground with RSA's "Regional Partner of the Year" award during RSA's Partner Council conference.

RSA's prestigious Partner Council Awards honor firms among the elite of its channel partner program. This recognition underscores Foreground's superior performance integrating RSA's advanced security solutions within comprehensive security programs. Foreground designs and manages to protect customers' sensitive data in both the public and private sectors. Combined with RSA's proven security offerings, Foreground's unique knowledge of clients' industries and security requirements help organizations field proactive defenses against adaptive, persistent cyber risks.

"This award is a tremendous honor, given the security experts and capabilities in RSA's network of channel partners. Even more importantly, this recognition validates our company's commitment to providing clients with the best security technologies available, in an integrated approach that maximizes returns on their existing security investments," said David Amsler, Foreground Security Founder and Chief Information Officer. "No security tool or technology can stop threats in a vacuum. Therefore, it is crucial to have experts and a strategic plan that serve as the foundation for deploying the latest technologies and practices matching cyber attackers' relentless and creative nature. We are proud that customers and partners like RSA believe Foreground stands apart in tailoring security programs to this philosophy as a service provider."

"RSA channel partners are the key to RSA's growth and strategic direction," said Tom Weldon, RSA's Senior Director of Partner Sales.
