London, UK – 09 October 2015 – AlienVault, the leading provider of Unified Security Management™ solutions and crowd-sourced threat intelligence, has won the industry award for Best Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Solution in the 2015 Computing Security Awards, which took place at the Hotel Russell in London last night.
The winners were decided democratically by nominations from the wider technology community. AlienVault’s USM platform was declared the best APT solution, beating runners-up including WatchGuard’s APT Blocker.
AlienVault’s USM provides a way for organisations with limited security staff and budget to address compliance and threat management needs. With all of the essential security controls built in, along with continuous threat intelligence updates from AlienVault Labs and the Open Threat Exchange (OTX), USM provides unparalleled security visibility for rapid threat detection and incident response.
