In 3 bullets, summarize why this company deserves recognition:
Fireglass allows users to click with confidence from any device by eliminating malware and phishing from web and email without an endpoint agent.
Fireglass isolation technology executes and renders all web sessions remotely and only a 100%-safe visual stream is delivered to users’ browsers. By creating an “air-gap” between users and the web and preventing any code or content from ever reaching users’ browsers, Fireglass eliminates the entire web attack vector.
Unlike traditional security solutions (e.g. Firewalls, Web Gateways, Sandboxes), which need to detect threats in order to blocks them, the Fireglass Threat Isolation Platform takes a more conservative approach and assumes all content is malicious. Delivered as a managed cloud service or on-premise, Fireglass provides a seamless user experience and does not require any endpoint installation, which makes it ideal for large scale deployments.
Fireglass Email Isolation eliminates the risk of phishing often delivered in emails. Fireglass isolates from phishing sites and blocks users from submitting corporate passwords to non-corporate websites as well as prevents employees from typing credentials and sharing sensitive information such as credit cards numbers and SSN in phishing websites or sites not white-listed. Email attachments can be viewed remotely through Fireglass which eliminates malicious active content (e.g. macros, scripts) delivered via weaponized documents from infecting users.
In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
Fireglass is revolutionizing cybersecurity by offering a future-proof security solution that prevents malware and phishing from ever reaching the corporate network, and finally puts enterprises ahead of attackers, permanently. Fireglass is the only effective defense against not only known threats but also unknown threats leveraging zero-day exploits (e.g. Flash, Java, and browser vulnerabilities).
Fireglass Threat Isolation platform seamlessly integrates into enterprises’ security architectures to enable safe access to any web sites, even uncategorized and risky ones, while at the same time minimizes false positive and negative alerts, which significantly reduces the overwhelming operational overhead and complexity security teams are faced with today.
Fireglass deserves recognition because our threat isolation technology changes the paradigm to threat prevention and efficiently blocks cyber-attacks in a market that is being breached on a daily basis and desperately needs an effective security solution. Coming out of stealth in February 2016, Fireglass announced $20M Series A funding and was then recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor of 2016, demonstrating the broad support and adoption of Fireglass technology by investors, analysts and customers.
