Woburn, MA, USA – August 8, 2008

Cyberoam, the industry leading identity-based Unified Threat Management range of appliances from Elitecore Technologies, announced today that Network Products Guide, a Silicon Valley Communications publication and a world leading publication on technologies and solutions has named Cyberoam, a winner of the 2008 Best Products and Services Award. This respected annual award honors products and services that represent the rapidly changing needs and interests of the end-users of technology worldwide. As part of the tech-industry’s leading global awards program, this year’s Best Products and Services were nominated from all over the world.

Cyberoam UTM appliances are unique in offering identity-based security that protect organizations from external as well as insider threats. They enable organizations to apply access policies based on the username, allowing them to create policies based on the user’s work profile and hierarchy. At the same time, Cyberoam reports display the user name, allowing organizations to see “Who is Doing What” not just in static IP environments, but also in dynamic scenarios like DHCP, Wi-Fi and in organizations like healthcare, customer care, educational institutions, where the user to PC ratio is more than 1, allowing them to take instant corrective action.

“Increased end-user awareness and ongoing advances in technology are helping shape better products and services.” says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief, Network Products Guide. “Cyberoam is bringing improvements through significant R&D on Layer 8 – the human layer – enabling it to deliver greater granularity and visibility into network usage and patterns. Further, it matches the granularity with high performance through the optimized use of multi-core processors in its appliances. Easy to deploy and manage with a web-based GUI, the appliances offer ease in operation and support.

“These awards go to the best technology products every year and we are honored that Cyberoam has gained the Network Products Guide Reader Trust,” says Harish Chib, Vice-President – New Business Development, Cyberoam. “Insider threats are contributing to over 50 % of all threats to the organization, originating from ignorant or malicious activity by insiders. Through Cyberoam’s user identity-based content filtering aided by the full range of security features, we offer complete visibility into and control over insiders, delivering protection against insider threats. Such identity-based controls enable organizations to meet the requirements of regulatory compliances too without separate investment. We are committed to meeting our customer needs by providing them with the best products and services.”
