Silent Circle Named Winner in the 2018 Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Awards

GoSilent Firewall Awarded Most Innovative Wireless, Mobile or Portable Device Security Solution

COLUMBIA, Md.--()--Silent Circle, a pioneer in enterprise privacy, today announced its GoSilent mobile firewall has been named a winner in the 2018 Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Awards in the category of Most Innovative Wireless, Mobile or Portable Device Security. Silent Circle was selected out of a pool of nearly 3,000 companies who create and offer the most respected information security products and services. Recognized for its unique encryption in an easy-to-use portable package, GoSilent provides security and intelligence at the edge of the network.

Privacy is increasingly under threat in today’s mobile world and the practice of encrypting and obfuscating internet traffic has proven effective for enterprise organizations looking to combat the threat. As the first portable integrated VPN, Application Firewall, and Cloud Analytics solution to safeguard remote or teleworking users, GoSilent has redefined an organization’s visibility and control over their BYOD and corporate devices.

“GoSilent empowers mobile users with enterprise security in the palm of their hand, combatting the weakest link in the security lifecycle: the human,” said Gregg Smith, CEO, Silent Circle. “The extremely compact device is purpose-built for edge security, expanding the reach of our globally recognized, unparalleled encryption technology. We are proud to be recognized as the most innovative solution for the mobile worker as the world continues to push the boundary of unified secure communications.”

GoSilent removes the fear felt by most IT departments that their executives and employees are at constant risk of knowingly or unknowingly connecting to WiFi, cellular or satellite networks. The revolutionary portable Firewall/VPN encrypts all data before it reaches the internet, negating the need to worry about in-transit data loss, protecting an organization’s teleworkers, traveling executives, contractors, partners, and remote locations from anywhere they access the internet.

“As cybercrime continues to gain momentum, surpassing global drug crime last year and reaching over $600B in theft and damages, we are proud to see Silent Circle as an award-winning innovator, offering a new approach to defeat these criminals,” said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.
