21CT's LYNXeon Named SC MAGAZINE'S 2014 Excellence Award Winner for Best Emerging Technology

For the Second Time in the Same Week LYNXeon Recognized for Innovative Approach to Security Analytics

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/26/14 -- RSA Conference -- 21CT today announced that its flagship solution LYNXeon has been named a 2014 SC Magazine Excellence Award winner in the category of Best Emerging Technology for its innovative approach to security analytics. Now in its 17th year, the prestigious award acknowledges the companies with superior security products helping customers tackle today's most pressing IT challenges. In addition to being named an SC Magazine award winner, this week LYNXeon was also recognized as "Most Innovative" by the 2014 Cyber Defense Magazine Awards.

LYNXeon rewards the curiosity of security teams by providing an analytics solution designed for the way users think, look, and find. Whether completely new to analytics or a proven data scientist, LYNXeon delivers data-driven knowledge in a manner any security professional can use. The solution uses data already found in every network to discover and visualize network behaviors to pinpoint malicious activity, compliance issues, and optimization problems while filtering out the plethora of false-positives created by traditional SIEM tools.

"Security teams are contending with a myriad of complex, sophisticated network threats every day. The tactics they've used in the past just aren't enough and they are now seeking out cutting-edge technologies that not only work to find attacks before damage is done, but can deliver on their promises," said Kyle Flaherty, 21CT's vice president of marketing. "Security analytics is one of those technologies, but it has thus far been cloaked in vendor-speak or bolt-on modules to current platforms. Our goal with LYNXeon was to create a product that works and works immediately within any network environment. This honor from SC Magazine is continued validation that we are giving our users what they need from security analytics -- stronger networks."

"The Excellence Award is given to the company or individual that represents the pinnacle of achievement in IT security," said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Magazine. "It is exciting for us to be able to recognize 21CT as one of the top performers in the industry."

The 2014 Excellence Award winners were selected by a panel of esteemed security professionals from the private and public sector, hand-picked by SC Magazine's editorial team, for their experience and breadth of knowledge in the information security industry. Awards were presented at the 17th annual SC Awards U.S. held February 25, 2014 in San Francisco, in conjunction with the annual RSA Conference.
