MENLO PARK, CALIF - March 2, 2016 – – Menlo Security, a pioneer of cloud-based isolation that eliminates malware from Web and email, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, an industry leading information security research and advisory guide, has named Menlo Security a gold winner of the 2016 Global Excellence Awards® in the Startup of the Year Category. 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 and 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 Feb. 29, 2016 in San Francisco attended by the finalists, judges and industry peers.
Current prevention systems are failing to mitigate cyber threats because they attempt to distinguish good content from bad. The Menlo Security Isolation Platform takes a different approach and executes all Web content in the cloud, away from the endpoint, without the need for endpoint software. This unique, patent-pending approach completely eliminates malware without impacting the user’s native browsing experience.
“With so many organizations facing challenges with Web and email security, there is a real need for a different approach to prevention,” said Kowsik Guruswamy, CTO of Menlo Security. “This industry honor illustrates the growing impact of Menlo Security’s unique approach to solving the malware problem.”
