CyberArmor firewall wins award
InfoExpress' enterprise firewall suite, CyberArmor, was awarded a NetworkComputing 2001 Well-Connected Award in the desktop firewall category. CyberArmor's centralized security policy management was recognized by NetworkComputing. The solution has the capability to select an active policy by differentiating whether a user is on the corporate network, when a remote VPN session is active or when a user is surfing the Internet. All winners and finalists are highlighted in the May 14 issue of Network Computing and also on Network Computing Online. CyberArmor addresses risks posed by allowing remote systems to connect to a network, especially over static IP high-speed Internet connections. CyberArmor puts security in an administrator's hands rather than a user's, allowing an administrator to create and enforce security policies on a remote system.
