Lastline Wins Gold in Two Categories at the 12th Annual 2017 IT World Awards

Company’s leadership in advanced malware protection acknowledged with top honors for Security Software and Hot Technology.

REDWOOD CITY, CA – May 23, 2017 Lastline Inc., the leader in advanced malware protection, today announced that Network Products Guide, a leading technology research and advisory guide, has named Lastline® Enterprise the winner of the Gold Award in two categories in the 12th Annual 2017 IT World Awards®: Best IT Products and Services: Security Software, and Hot Technology and Products Suitable for USA. These industry and peer recognitions from Network Products Guide are among the industry’s premier information technology awards honoring achievements and recognitions in every facet of the IT industry.

“The IT World Awards recognition validates our position as the provider of market-leading advanced malware detection,” said Bert Rankin, Lastline CMO. “These awards acknowledge our innovation and effectiveness that enable enterprises to prevent malware-based data breaches by detecting and defeating today’s most damaging and costly threats, including those that too often remain undetected by other malware detection solutions. We are honored to receive these awards.”

Lastline Enterprise’s behavior-based technology uses a unique isolation and inspection environment to detect every action that advanced malware makes, while signature-based sandboxes and other “advanced” products only see a small portion of the malware’s intended behaviors, or miss it altogether. There isn’t a file-based or network-based behavior that evasive malware can execute that Lastline can’t see.

Lastline Enterprise is widely acknowledged as the industry’s most effective advanced malware protection solution as evaluated by third-party testing agencies and as recognized by numerous awards. NSS Labs’ 2016 Breach Detection Systems Test recognized Lastline as the only breach detection offering they have ever tested to achieve 100-percent detection effectiveness with zero false positives. And the 2016 Forrester Wave report recognized Lastline as providing the strongest automated malware analysis solution in the market.

An annual achievements and recognition awards program with active participation from a broad spectrum of industry voices, the coveted annual IT World Awards recognition program encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance, products and services, hot technologies, and many other aspects of information technology.
