Segra DDoS Edge Protect is Network Security Winner

CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 31, 2023 – Today, Segra announces that its DDoS Edge Protect has won the 2023 Fortress Cyber Security Awards in the Network Security category.

“We are pleased that Segra’s DDoS Edge Protect has garnered attention as a superior network security offering,” said Kevin T. Hart, Segra CEO. “All of our security solutions provide our customers with peace of mind and a foundation for long-term success.”

Segra’s DDoS Edge Protect appliances are located at high-volume entry points on the Segra core network where attacks are most likely to occur, such as public transit connections. The appliances automatically inspect all traffic as soon as it arrives at an entry point, immediately discarding malicious packets while sending legitimate packets to their destination. During this process, other network services continue to operate without interruption, even latency-sensitive applications like voice and video.

“We are so proud to name Segra’s DDoS Edge Protect as a winner in the 2023 Fortress Cyber Security Awards program,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “As our society continues to evolve and become more reliant on networks and data, companies like Segra are critical at providing the protection and trust consumers demand.”

The industry awards program sought to identify and reward the world’s leading companies and products that are working to keep our data and electronic assets safe among a growing threat from hackers.
