STERLING, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vercara, a leading provider of cloud-based services that secure the online experience, clinched four wins at the Global InfoSec Awards during the 2023 RSA Conference. Granted by Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine, the awards recognize information security innovators around the globe who offer unique and compelling value propositions for their products and services.
“It is an honor to be recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine, and these four coveted awards are a testament to the hard work of our dedicated, collaborative and experienced teams,” said Colin Doherty, CEO of Vercara. “Staying ahead of evolving threats is a more difficult task than ever, especially amidst accelerating digitization and increasingly complex IT infrastructures. We are committed to delivering flexible, adaptable and scalable solutions that enable our customers to focus on their business while we focus on keeping their customer interactions uninterrupted and secure.”
Vercara, formerly Neustar Security Services, and its time- and pressure-tested services, achieved the following:
- Vercara won the award for Best Solution: Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP). Vercara is trusted by the world’s top brands to safeguard their online presence. Its mission-critical security portfolio delivers the industry’s best performance and includes best-in-class DNS, application and network security that protects against risks and downtime.
- UltraDDoS Protect won the award for Best Solution: Managed Detection and Response (MDR) Service Provider. UltraDDoS Protect is one of the largest, dedicated cloud-based, on-demand DDoS mitigation services in the world. It gets rid of malicious Internet traffic and defuses the kinds of large, complex headline-making attacks that threaten operational stability.
- UltraDDR won the award for Cutting Edge: Network Detection and Response. Ultra DDR is a recursive DNS-based protection service aimed at combatting network breaches, ransomware attacks, phishing and supply chain compromise, while enforcing enterprise acceptable use policies for its users.

Miliefsky, publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
