RIDGELAND, Miss. – Bomgar Corporation, the worldwide leader in secure, appliance-based remote support, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry’s leading information security research and advisory guide, has named it a winner of the 2010 Tomorrow’s Technology Today Award.  This prestigious award recognizes security vendors with advanced,  ground-breaking technologies and solutions that are setting the bar for information security. Bomgar’s appliance-based remote access solution was selected for its positive impact on security in today’s highly sophisticated and blended attacks environment.

As the industry’s only remote support solution to achieve the Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Level 2 certification,  Bomgar’s one-of-a-kind appliance-based delivery model meets stringent requirements set by the National Institute of Standards and Technology for both hardware and software. The Bomgar Appliance centralizes all data and audit logs on-premise, avoiding the security risks inherent in SaaS-based alternatives that pass sensitive data through a third-party server.  Bomgar also integrates with identity management solutions, such as LDAP and Active Directory, ensuring only authorized users have access to remote systems. For these reasons, enterprises in security-conscious and heavily regulated industries—including retail,  healthcare and financial services—are turning to Bomgar to remotely support employees and customers around the world.

“Threats have no boundaries and security awareness is the key to a proactive approach,” says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief, Info Security Products Guide. “Probably nothing differentiates any product or solution more than the superior technologies that make them suitable for today’s needs while proactively being ready for tomorrow too.”

Verizon recently reported that 34 percent of data breaches by hacking occur through remote access and control systems; the second biggest attack pathway for hackers,”  said Nathan McNeill, vice president, product strategy, Bomgar.  “Many of our customers are under regulations, such as SOX, PCI and HIPAA, and they simply can’t afford to expose themselves to these types of security risks.  Bomgar is committed to helping enterprises protect themselves by providing the most secure remote support solution on the market, and we’re honored to be recognized by Info Security Products Guide.”
