Company Wins Cyber Defense Award at RSA® 2020

SAN JOSE, Calif.– February 24, 2020 – Untangle® Inc., a leader in comprehensive network security for small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) and distributed enterprises, today announced it has won a Cyber Defense Award for “Most Innovative – Small to Medium Size Business (SMB) – Cybersecurity” from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine.

Untangle was recognized for its overall innovation to take the complexity out of network security, saving SMBs time, money and frustration. The Untangle Network Security Framework provides customers everything they need in a single, modular platform that fits the evolving needs of an organization without the headaches of multiple point solutions. This includes Untangle’s award-winning NG Firewall and recently launched SD-WAN Router.

“We are very proud to be honored for our continued work in the SMB cybersecurity space,” said Heather Paunet, VP of product management at Untangle. “SMBs are now, more than ever, reassessing their investments into IT security and this recognition directly reflects our commitment to bring the highest level of innovation and solutions to market.”

The Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Award program is in its eighth year, honoring companies who believe they have a unique and compelling value proposition for their product or service. Judges include CISSP, FMDHS, CEH, certified security professionals who vote based on their independent reviews of the products/services which have been submitted.

“With cybercrime heading into the tens of billions of records stolen and potentially trillions of dollars in damages, we are proud to recognize Untangle as an award-winning innovator that offers a new approach to defeat these criminals,” said Pierlugi Paganini, editor-in-chief, Cyber Defense Magazine. “Untangle embodies three major features the judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today, providing a cost-effective solution and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach.”
