Ericom Selected as SC Media 2020 Trust Award Finalist
Ericom Shield Cloud-Based Zero Trust Browser Isolation Service Protects Enterprises from Web-Based Malware and Phishing Attacks
New York, NY (November 29, 2019)– Ericom Software, a leader in secure web and application access solutions, today announced that Ericom Shield has been recognized as a Trust Award finalist in the Best UTM Security Solutions category for the 2020 SC Awards. The finalists and winners for the Trust Awards are chosen by an expert panel of judges with extensive knowledge and experience in the cybersecurity industry. Winners will be announced at the SC Awards ceremony on February 25, 2020 in San Francisco.
Ericom Shield prevents ransomware and advanced web threats from reaching user endpoints by executing active web content in a remote, isolated container. An interactive media stream representing the website is sent to the endpoint browser, providing a safe, seamless user experience. Whether users browse to a malicious site on their own or by clicking a URL embedded in a phishing email or a malicious PDF document, they are safe since no web content is ever executed directly on their device. For additional phishing protection, websites launched from URLs in emails can be rendered in read-only mode to prevent users from entering credentials. Attached files are sanitized before being transmitted to endpoints, ensuring that malware within downloads cannot infect users’ devices.
“Every new year brings with it an unpredictable mix of adversity and opportunity for information security professionals,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “In 2019, we watched as software supply chain attacks grew bigger and bolder, DNS hijacking campaigns threatened the very integrity of the internet, and targeted ransomware attacks disrupted the operations of cities, school districts and organizations in the health care, industrial and transportation sectors. Through it all, this year’s SC Awards finalists found ways to break boundaries, overcome challenges and contribute fresh new ideas to the world of cybersecurity.”.
Now in its 23rd year, SC Awards is recognized as the industry gold standard of accomplishment for cybersecurity professionals, products and services. With the awards, SC Media recognizes the achievements of cybersecurity professionals in the field, the innovations happening in the vendor and service provider communities, and the vigilant work of government, commercial and nonprofit entities. Vendors and service providers who offer a product and/or service for the commercial, government, educational, nonprofit or other industries are eligible for the SC Awards’ Trust Award category.
“We live in a world where hackers are exceptionally creative and aggressive in developing new approaches to breach enterprise networks. Ericom’s innovative isolation-based solution defeats attacks launched through the primary vectors cybercriminals target – web and email,” said David Canellos, President and CEO of Ericom Software. “SC Media’s recognition of our product validates our team’s dedicated efforts and confirms the impact we are having on the security of our customers.”
“Trust Awards nominees go through a rigorous and exacting evaluation process headed by a panel of more than 60 judges and the SC Labs product reviews team," added Armstrong of SC Media. "Earning a spot among our finalists is an impressive feat that places Ericom in rarefied air.”
