ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lookingglass Cyber Solutions, the industry leader in Over-The-Horizon Cyber Threat Suppression, announced that ScoutVision was recognized as a finalist in the Government Security News (GSN) Homeland Security Awards in the Best Intelligence Data Fusion and Collaborative Analysis Solution category.
The GSN Homeland Security Awards honor federal, state and local government agencies that have created and implemented effective programs and initiatives in addition to vendors in IT security and physical security who have researched, developed and produced innovative security products and solutions during the past year. The timely and effective use of global threat intelligence is emerging as a major investment for government and commercial enterprises. Lookingglass’ introduction of ScoutVision arms these organizations with the ability to actively and proactively apply security resources to high priority threats while filtering out the noise.
“Organizations are now realizing that some of their most critical and potentially damaging vulnerabilities lie outside the traditional enterprise, and in order to keep their own systems safe, it is critical to examine the safety of third-party networks as well,” said Derek Gabbard, Chief Executive Officer of Lookingglass Cyber Solutions. “Rather than being tied to the antiquated ‘stop any and all security events’ mindset, Lookingglass’ ScoutVision can rapidly determine the relevance of those threats and more effectively focus resources, thereby adopting a new cyber security risk approach that tightly aligns customers’ business needs with operational realities. This award recognition highlights ScoutVision’s innovative ability to deliver this level of intelligence to the industry.”
Lookingglass’ customers find value in ScoutVision’s innovative continuous monitoring and analytical capabilities. This product alerts them to the presence of threats within networks that are relevant to customers, improving their real time monitoring of relevant networks compared to traditional solutions used previously. ScoutVision aggregates and analyzes a myriad of cyber intelligence sources to identify global threats as soon as they emerge.
The winners for the GSN Homeland Security Awards will be announced at the GSN Awards dinner on Thursday, November 29, 2012 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. For more information, please visit: http://www.gsnmagazine.com/hsa2012/ceremony
