Foreground Security Named Gold Winner in Network Product Guide's 10th Annual 2015 IT World Awards

HERNDON, Va., July 7, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foreground Security, a cutting-edge security consulting firm that offers an advanced set of cyber hunting and analytics capabilities, today announced that its Virtual Security Operations Center (V-SOC) has been selected as the gold winner in the "Best IT Services" category for Network Product Guide's 10th Annual 2015 IT World Awards. These esteemed awards are the world's leading information technology awards recognizing and honoring achievement in every facet of the IT industry among all areas of security and technology.

The traditional Managed Security Services (MSS) model uses automated network security tools, such as intrusion prevention and detection systems along with security logs and events to detect attacks based on known signatures and attack vectors. Foreground's V-SOC service takes a new approach to managed security by automating much of the traditional MSS model through Foreground's patent-pending Automated Threat Intelligence Platform (ATIP) and allows Foreground's analysts to spend their time doing advanced network hunting for threats that can circumvent traditional security controls.

"We are proud to have our Virtual Security Operations Center services recognized by Network Products Guide in these awards lauding our technical innovation and value," said David Amsler, President and CIO of Foreground Security. "We believe this recognition from Network Products Guide underscores our commitment to customers and meeting the next generation of our customers' security needs."
