Winners of the 14th annual ISPG awards are recognized cybersecurity and information technology vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products, solutions, and services that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technology. Silent Circle has dedicated its efforts to redefining secure unified communications across the globe by offering a suite of military-grade privacy innovations that work together to protect the enterprise.
Data compromise causes immeasurable harm to businesses and their trusted partners and the need for encrypting or obfuscating internet traffic has escalated rapidly in recent years. GoSilent boosts security and intelligence to go beyond the boundary of an organization’s enterprise network. As the first portable integrated VPN, IPS, Application Firewall, and Cloud Analytics solution to safeguard remote or teleworking users, GoSilent provides each user with protection and visibility into threats that target their networks, information and workforce. For the first time, the enterprise can have visibility and control over BYOD or corporate devices from wherever users are accessing the Internet across the globe. Not only is the compact device easily deployed at scale, but GoSilent also inspects all network traffic for a wide range of threats in order to detect and prevent exposure to malicious websites and reduce overall advertisement traffic significantly.
The GoSilent Edge Protection Suite provides the user with protection and visibility into threats that target their networks, information, and workforce when operating external to their networks and facilities. The suite empowers remote network access and defense solutions that offer: advanced threat protection; application visibility and control; next generation secure access; fully extensible and open platform; policy management and reporting; and granular auditing and logging.
“By pioneering next-generation encryption for sensitive communications to businesses and governments, GoSilent has emerged on the market as a one-of-a-kind solution for safeguarding privacy across borders,” Vesh Bhatt, CTO of GoSilent Products at Silent Circle. “We are extremely proud to be honored by ISPG alongside our industry peers and are confident that our technology will continue to raise the bar for secure unified communications.”
