Guardicore, the segmentation company disrupting the legacy firewall market, has been declared the winner of the Security Innovation of the Year in the international Cloud Computing Awards program, The Cloud Awards. The coveted annual program celebrates the world’s brightest and best in Cloud Computing across several categories.

“Accelerated digital transformation demands a new breed of security solution to secure complex cloud and distributed environments against sophisticated attacks,” said Pavel Gurvich, co-founder and CEO of Guardicore. “Today’s cybercriminal is focusing efforts on moving laterally between east-west traffic workloads and is evading legacy firewall protection. Being honored as the Security Innovation of the Year is a tremendous honor and validation that Guardicore is purpose-built for the security demands of the modern enterprise.”

The Guardicore Centra Security Platform is the simplest and most effective way to visualize and secure business applications in cloud and hybrid environments. The platform creates human-readable views of an organization’s complete infrastructure with intuitive workflows for segmentation policy creation. Its segmentation controls reduce the attack surface and detect and control breaches within east-west traffic, providing deep visibility into application dependencies, and enforcement of network, workload, user, device and process-level policies to isolate and segment critical applications and infrastructure.

Cloud Award judge Jason Ford says, “Absolutely brilliant alternative to legacy firewall solutions, and the judges were very impressed with a solution that future-proofs cloud deployments. This is the future of perimeter security.”

Hundreds of organizations entered the Cloud Awards, with entries coming from across the globe, covering the Americas, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. Guardicore was selected over competitors in the Security Innovation of the Year category, including Alert Logic, McAfee, VMware Inc, Tanium, Securonix, CyberArk, Thycotic and more.
