These industry and peer awards from Network Products Guide are the world’s premier information technology awards honoring achievements and recognitions in every facet of the IT industry.

EdgeWave’s deployment at the 2014 US Tennis Open at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, N.Y. is a finalist for the Best Deployments and Case Studies category by securing web traffic at the highest attended annual sporting event in the world. EdgeWave partnered with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) to provide an open yet secure wi-fi network to the 750,000+ fans, media and athletes in attendance, and ensure all web traffic met with the USTA’s policy requirements. “EdgeWave built us a powerful and nonintrusive solution that allows us to effectively control internet usage policies without the need to touch every single device that comes on board,” said USTA CIO Larry Bonfante.

EdgeWave provides Military-Grade data protection through processes that have been battle-proven to defend complex networks against sophisticated cyber attacks. Called EdgeWave EPIC™ (Enhanced Precision Integrated Cyber Capabilities™ ), this unique cyber defense capability combines experienced U.S. Military cyber security veterans with advanced technology to precisely identify attacks, help eliminate threats and help stop data breaches. EdgeWave EPIC is deployed through ePrism Email Security, iPrism Web Gateway, EPIC Next Generation Firewall™ and new EPIC Security Assurance Service™ to provide adaptive, layered defense against advanced cyber threats.

“Stopping data breaches is of paramount importance and traditional approaches aren’t working. EdgeWave provides Military-Grade cyber security to protect against advanced threats in a platform that is almost effortless to implement and use,” said Mike Walls, Managing Director, Security Operations & Analysis, EdgeWave. “This recognition validates our dedication, and we thank Info Security Products Guide for acknowledging our hard work.” Prior to joining EdgeWave, Mr. Walls (CAPT, U.S. Navy ret.) was responsible for U.S. Navy cyber readiness, ensuring the security of over 300 ships, 4,000 aircraft and 400,000 servicemen – the world’s largest intranet.
