Cyber Defense Magazine honors EncrypTight and 3-Series Lockable Patch Cables

PITTSBURGH--()--Black Box Corporation (NASDAQ:BBOX) announced today that Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine, has named two Black Box networking products winners in its 2014 Cyber Defense awards. The awards recognize the best and most innovative products related to IT security.

Black Box’s EncrypTight was named the Most Innovative End-to-End Security Solution. The company's 3-Series Lockable Patch Cables were named the Best Physical Security Solution.

EncrypTight is a family of multi-site, multi-layer WAN encryption appliances that preserve network services while protecting data without requiring time-consuming VPN tunnels. EncrypTight operates transparently and is easily integrated into existing networks. It also provides seamless scalability for 3-Mbps networks up to 10-Gigabit networks.

3-Series is a family of high-performance GigaTrue and GigaBase CAT6A, CAT6, and CAT5e patch cables that can be optionally locked into place for the same price as non-locking cables. The cables can be used for everyday network connections. When security is needed, users can lock down network ports by inserting the optional Locking Pin into the patented LockPORT boot. 3-Series cables are guaranteed for life.
