Bomgar, the worldwide leader in secure, appliance-based remote support solutions, today announced that Info Security Products Guide, the industry’s leading information security research and advisory guide, has named its remote support appliance the winner of the 2011 Global Excellence Awards in the Access category. More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2011 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners. Winners were announced during the awards dinner and presentation on February 16, 2011 in San Francisco attended by the finalists and judges.
Due to Bomgar’s unique appliance-based design, customers keep all of their remote support session video recordings, data and audit logs on-premise, eliminating the security risks of SaaS-based remote access tools that pass sensitive data through a third-party server. Bomgar also integrates with identity management solutions, such as LDAP, Active Directory and RADIUS, to ensure only authorized users can remotely access computers, devices and unattended systems. The only remote support solution to achieve the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Level 2 certification, Bomgar meets the stringent requirements set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology for both hardware and software. For enterprises handling highly secure data and facing strict compliance regulations, such as SOX, HIPAA and PCI-DSS, Bomgar is the number one choice to remotely support employees and customers around the world.
“This award further recognizes our commitment to building the most secure remote support solution on the market, and we’re thankful to Info Security Products Guide,” said Nathan McNeill, co-founder and VP of product strategy at Bomgar. “To reduce the risk of security breaches, solutions that allow access into all of your employees’ or customers’ systems must be among the most secure technology in any company. This industry honor is an endorsement to the fact that Bomgar is ahead of the curve when it comes to products that can provide the highest security in remote access.”
