Engate Technology Corporation, a leading supplier of next generation network profiling connection management security solutions, today announced that the editors of Technology Marketing Corporation‘s INTERNET TELEPHONY® magazine have named Engate‘s threat preemption solution as a recipient of the 2006 Product of the Year Award.

Engate‘s Network Profiling Connection Management technology can be extensible to other protocols, such as Instant Messaging and Internet Telephony, delivering the best safeguard for today‘s and tomorrow‘s threats.
"Internet Telephony magazine is proud to bestow Engate with a 2006 Product of the Year Award.

"We're honored to be selected by Internet Telephony magazine as it continues to validate the innovation and value that Engate delivers to OEM vendors, service providers and enterprises worldwide", said Wil Cochran, CEO, Engate. "Engate is impenetrable to threats because its proprietary technology uses source information that cannot be forged, resulting in a permanent solution to these threats. As a first line of defense, Engate MailSentinel™ eliminates over 99 percent of incoming spam at the connection level - saving bandwidth, conserving network resources and yielding the highest level of security in the market."
Differentiate with Proprietary Network Profiling Technology
The company’s flagship product, Engate MailSentinel™, transcends today's reputation and content security solutions by delivering preemptive protocol level protection against all email threats. Unlike today's reputation solutions that require secondary filters to achieve better accuracy rates, Engate delivers unmatched security by thoroughly profiling the entire spamming network, analyzing every IP within the network, establishing efficient rules to block malicious email at the connection level, and permanently stopping threats closer to the source.
While Engate uniquely functions at 99.97% accuracy without capturing, storing or reading email content, Engate MailSentinel™ adds incremental value to content filters and application layer security products by radically reducing the volume of unwanted traffic prior to their receipt at the destination mail systems. Once email is determined to be legitimate, Engate directs legitimate mail to the mail transfer agent, and if desired, filtering for objectionable content. The result is drastically smaller volumes of email that require application layer filtering, as well as a reduced load on the email infrastructure, setting a new benchmark for customer satisfaction. Engate has filed 8 patents on its technology.
