Savvius Vigil™ Named Most Innovative Security Product of 2016
Info Security Product Guide® 2016 Awards recognize the need for network forensic investigation technology as part of standard security protocol
WALNUT CREEK, Calif - March 2, 2016 – Savvius™, Inc., a leader in packet intelligence solutions for network performance management and security investigations, today announced that its network security appliance, Savvius Vigil™, has received two awards: a Gold award for the Most Innovative Security Product and a Bronze award for advanced technology, both from Info Security Products Guide® at the 2016 Global Excellence Awards® held in San Francisco on February 29, 2016.
These awards recognize that since most cyber attacks are not discovered until months after a security breach has occurred, making network traffic data available is a new and critical capability that is vital for effective security investigations.
Savvius Vigil is the first security appliance to make network forensics possible in investigations of security breaches that occurred moments, weeks, even months before the intrusion was detected. Rather than fallible log files, network packets enable faster troubleshooting, problem isolation, incident mitigation, and reduced overall recovery times. Traffic between related nodes is captured for five minutes before and after a triggered event, enabling Vigil to store critical network data that is typically missed by competing solutions.
Patent-pending technology leverages existing security systems and employs sophisticated analytics to enable Savvius Vigil to efficiently store network traffic data relevant to hundreds of alerts per day.
"Receiving the Gold award for product innovation together with the Bronze award for 'Companies with Tomorrow's Technology Today' validates the need for Savvius Vigil in every company's security strategy," said Larry Zulch, president and CEO of Savvius. "With the recent release of Vigil 2.0, these industry accolades are a great endorsement of a product that delivers tangible and valuable benefits for post-breach investigations."
Savvius is currently exhibiting Vigil and its award-winning Omnipeek® network analytics software at the 2016 RSA Conference, booth #2244, in the South Hall of the Moscone Center, San Francisco. The Savvius booth will also host guest speakers from Gigamon, Cisco, Ixia, and Blink Digital Security, who will be presenting the latest trends in network forensics and breach investigations.
