RSA Conference, San Francisco: Thales, leader in information systems and communications security,has announced that Info Security Products Guide, the industry’s leading information security research and advisory guide, has named the Thales Datacryptor line of network encryption solutions Gold Winner of the 2013 Global Excellence Awards in the Best Encryption category. The prestigious global excellence awards recognize Thales as a global leader in the security industry with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions.

 

More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2013 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners. Winners were announced during an awards dinner and presentation on February 27, 2013 in San Francisco attended by finalists, judges and industry peers.

The Thales Datacryptor network encryption product family has provided network security to enterprise and government organizations for more than 20 years. Datacryptor solutions provide secure, efficient, and scalable data transport for a variety of Layer 2 point-to-point and multipoint applications as well as Layer 3 IP. These tamper-resistant devices protect data confidentiality using the strongest commercial and government encryption algorithms with sophisticated key lifecycle management and storage techniques, while offering significantly lower latency than software encryption capabilities embedded in common network devices such as switches and routers. Datacryptor solutions make it possible for organizations to utilize the most cost-effective data transport medium available, while also meeting or exceeding business and regulatory requirements for data privacy and confidentiality. Specifically designed to ease maintenance and minimize cost of ownership, Datacryptor products are certified to the highest levels, including FIPS, Common Criteria, the UK government CAPS (CESG Assisted Products Service) standards, NATO and the U.S. Defense Information Systems Agency’s Unified Capabilities Approved Products List (DISA UC APL).

Cindy Provin, president, Thales e-Security, Inc., says: “Encryption is taking center stage as a critical part of an organization’s IT security strategy, in order to mitigate the risk of data breaches and cyber-attacks and to protect an organization’s brand reputation, as disclosed in our latest 2012 Global Encryption Trends Study conducted by the Ponemon Institute. We are proud to be recognized as an industry leader with the Thales Datacryptor solution winning the Best Encryption Gold Award in the Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards. Thales has been at the forefront of security technology for more than 40 years and this recognition further demonstrates our commitment to delivering innovative and high quality security solutions that enable our customers to protect their most valuable assets and business processes.
