HANOVER, Md., Dec. 07, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hexis Cyber Solutions, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The KEYW Holding Corporation (NASDAQ:KEYW), and a provider of advanced cybersecurity solutions for commercial companies and government agencies, announced today that it has been named one of the IT industry’s leading tech innovators by CRN®. The 2015 CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize standout companies that have brought to market hardware, software or services that have substantially impacted the industry. In compiling the Tech Innovator list, a panel of CRN editors evaluated 200 products across 19 categories based on a number of factors, including technical advances, unique features and ability to empower solution providers to solve end-users’ IT challenges. Hexis Cyber Solutions’ flagship product, HawkEye G, took the top honor in the Security category.
“As a 100-percent channel driven company, Hexis Cyber Solutions is honored to have been recognized by CRN as part of the 2015 CRN Tech Innovator Awards,” said Katherine Russ-Hotfelter, Director, Channel Marketing, Hexis Cyber Solutions. “Our mission is to provide a strategic and effective security solution that can easily integrate into customers’ existing infrastructure. As such, our Next Generation Endpoint Detection and Response platform HawkEye G will continue to serve the growing needs of customers.”
As security teams continue to get inundated with advanced threats and deal with false positives and ghost alerts generated by legacy, perimeter-based security devices, the need for an advanced, integrated cyber defense solution is needed now more than ever. HawkEye G is a Next Generation Endpoint Detection and Response platform that provides threat detection, verification, and automated response capabilities. With newly expanded platform coverage across Microsoft’s Windows 10 and Red Hat Linux and CentOS environments for increased endpoint security, HawkEye G can detect and respond to cyber threats at machine speed without compromising critical corporate data or interrupting end-user productivity. HawkEye G’s ThreatSync™ unified threat scoring model fuses threat alerts and applies behavioral analytics that measure how successfully the adversary is meeting its objectives in exploiting and taking control of the endpoint; as a result, security teams are able to cut through the noise and make intelligent and strategic decisions for better overall network security.
“Patriot Technologies has been partnering with Hexis Cyber Solutions since 2013; since the inception of our relationship, we’ve helped our end-user customers to deploy a solution that expertly combats advanced persistent threats and commodity malware,” said Dewayne Adams, CTO, Patriot Technologies. “Our partnership, directly led by HawkEye G’s advanced cybersecurity platform capabilities, supports a multi-disciplined approach for achieving a higher standard of cybersecurity.”
“In this rapidly evolving tech marketplace, it’s critical that vendors are bringing products to the channel that help solution providers quickly deliver value to their customers,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “The products chosen for this year’s Tech Innovator Awards are solving difficult IT problems, reducing complexity or otherwise contributing to the growth of enterprises worldwide.”
