Wontok SafeCentral Named Finalists for Info Security Products Guide’s Global Excellence Awards

SafeCentral receives recognition in Anti-malware and Security Products and Solutions for Finance and Banking categories

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – January 24, 2013 – Wontok, a global cloud and endpoint security company, today announced that Wontok SafeCentral has been named a finalist for the 2013 Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards in two categories, Anti-Malware and Security Products and Solutions for Finance and Banking. Wontok SafeCentral is a secure session technology that renders malware inoperable on client PCs and employee owned devices (regardless of who is accessing the network or how the endpoint is connected to the enterprise or institution). As a complementary layer of protection that strengthens antivirus, firewall and encryption security, SafeCentral adds depth to security defenses and keeps sensitive data secured when transferring information or transacting online. The annual Global Excellence Awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.

SafeCentral takes a different approach to security than most solutions used today. While traditional security technologies are dependent on definition updates and react to new threats, SafeCentral takes a more proactive, preventative approach. SafeCentral locks out data-stealing malware while allowing secure access to local and online applications. It includes patented technology that blocks malware agents from functioning as intended, protecting data-in-use such as authentication credentials, web session tokens, online account numbers, viewed financial data and other information that is accessed on the endpoint, presented on the screen and processed by endpoint applications and web sessions.

“We appreciate the recognition for SafeCentral, which is protecting thousands of people and organizations around the world from the increasing volume and variety of online threats with a unique approach to security,” said Adam Tegg, CEO of Wontok. “Deploying the right security solutions has never been more important, with financial institutions constantly under attack, healthcare organizations moving more to cloud and mobile technology, and enterprises increasingly expanding. We believe SafeCentral is a key component in any security strategy and recognition from Info Security Products Guide further validates our commitment to our technology, and our customers and their security needs.”

In addition to securing the desktop and browser, Wontok SafeCentral also protects VPN and VDI clients. The solution is easy to implement with minimum work required by IT. SafeCentral is a one-time install, lightweight application that offers additional protection for data-in-use against keyloggers, screen scrapers, DNS redirection, banking Trojans and man-in-the-browser attacks.
