The Security Industry’s Coveted Global Excellence Awards Winners and Finalists Honored in San Francisco on February 29, 2016

CALABASAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 1, 2016-- Ixia (Nasdaq: XXIA), a leading provider of network testing, visibility, and security solutions, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named ThreatARMOR the Gold winner of the 2016 Global Excellence Awards® in Security Products and Solutions for Medium Enterprises.

The security industry celebrated its 12th Annual 2016 Global Excellence Awards in San Francisco by honoring excellence in every facet of the industry including products, people behind the successes and best companies.

More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2016 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners. Winners were announced during the awards dinner and presentation on February 29, 2016 in San Francisco attended by the finalists, judges, and industry peers.

Ixia’s ThreatARMOR is a new front line of defense for enterprise networks, enabling customers to reduce the ever-increasing size of their global network attack surface, while decreasing the volume of security alerts generated and freeing IT resources to focus on critical issues.

A network attack surface is the sum of every access avenue an individual can use to gain access to an enterprise network. Enterprise security tools inspect all traffic, including that which should not be on the network in the first place, such as traffic from known malicious IPs, hijacked IPs, and unassigned or unused IP space/addresses. ThreatARMOR blocks this known bad traffic, reducing the burden on the existing security infrastructure. Ixia’s ThreatARMOR is an easy and fast way to reduce a network attack surface.

The enterprise security perimeter has expanded to address new classes of attack, advancing breeds of hackers, and an evolving regulatory landscape. As attacks increase in complexity and sophistication, security vendors respond with powerful inspection and prevention security products. ThreatARMOR eliminates unwanted traffic before it can impact an existing enterprise security infrastructure, which saves customers time and the cost of reviewing the flood of unnecessary notifications generated by powerful security systems.

“ThreatARMOR is the culmination of over a decade of experience in application and threat intelligence and reflects Ixia’s commitment to developing innovative solutions with compelling customer value,” said Bethany Mayer, president and CEO of Ixia. “Info Security Products Guide’s recognition further validates that ThreatARMOR is the best-of-the-best and delivers a new level of visibility and security for enterprises.”
