For 20 years, the SC Awards organized by the SC Magazine have recognized the gold standard of excellence among developers of cybersecurity solutions.

The SC Awards 2017 ceremony will be held February 14, 2017 in San Francisco. The five finalists in the Best UTM Security Solution category are already known, with Russia's Entensys being amongst them.

An expert in content analysis, protection from web threats and email security, Entensys Corporation was awarded for its outstanding leadership and superior security product. "Frankly speaking, we did not expect that our product UserGate UTM will be included in the top five in this category in less than a year after its release. This is even more satisfying, as the voting took place in the very distant Silicon Valley," Entensys CEO Dmitry Kurashev said in the press release.

Among dozens of solutions, the jury considered the company's product as one of the best for combining a wide range of features and demonstrating an innovative approach to security issues, according to the Vice-President of SC Media.

According to the rules of the SC Awards 2017, nominees had to offer a complete and versatile solution, covering various branches of data security, such as malware protection, content filtering, protection against attacks and intrusions, anti-spam and a firewall. "Entensys solutions are widely used in the largest Russian companies and now they are actively starting to be introduced abroad. We hope that this recognition will allow Entensys to strengthen its position in Russia and continue its sales on the international market," said Sergey Hodakov, the head of the information security direction of the Skolkovo Foundation IT cluster. Skolkovo Foundation is a non-profit organization created on the initiative of the Russian President in September 2010. Since this time, Entensys has been developing a new platform capable of providing effective traffic analysis at high speeds. In 2013, this platform served as the basis for UserGate Web Filter, a solution for telecom operators and universities. The award-winning UserGate UTM, a comprehensive online security solution for businesses of any size, was released in 2016.
