Global Infosec Awards Winner, Cyber Defense Magazine, 2022

NETSCOUT is proud to be recognized as Market Leader in Network Detection and Response by Cyber Defense Magazine—the industry's leading electronic information security publication—at this year’s Global Infosec Awards.

In today's climate of heightened cybersecurity awareness and the constant threat of attack, finding solutions you can trust is paramount. “In a post-COVID world where SaaS, cloud computing, and the dramatic increase in working from home on computers with less manageable poor hygiene, there’s been an exponential growth in new kinds of ransomware, business email compromise, IoT and OT exploitation, deep phishing attacks, cybercrime, and cyberterrorism. Only the most innovative and forward-thinking cybersecurity solutions will give us a fighting chance,” said Yan Ross, U.S. editor of Cyber Defense Magazine.

In selecting NETSCOUT's security solutions for one of the most prestigious and coveted cybersecurity awards in the industry, judges cited our understanding of today and tomorrow's threats, as well as our innovative and cost-effective solutions that are helping mitigate cyber risk and keeping customers one step ahead of the next breach.

Cyber Defense Magazine, celebrating its 10th anniversary as an independent cybersecurity news and information provider, presented NETSCOUT with this honor at the Global InfoSec Award ceremony held during the 2022 RSA Conference in June. NETSCOUT was singled out from more than 4,000 companies evaluated by Cyber Defense Magazine for this year’s awards.

In the face of exponential growth in cybercrime, the need for award-winning solutions such as those offered by NETSCOUT is more important than ever. We have earned a reputation as a network detection and response (NDR) leader with solutions such as Omnis Cyber Intelligence (OCI), which is designed for holistic cybersecurity that works across today’s extended digital footprint.

Deployed in any type of network environment (e.g., legacy, public cloud), NETSCOUT network sensors (CyberStream, InfiniStreamNG, or vSTREAM) continuously capture packets and, in real-time via our patented Adaptive Service Intelligence (ASI) technology, convert those packets into a robust source of layer 3-7 metadata we call ‘Smart Data.’ Then, using network statistics, behavioral analysis, and threat intelligence from our Active Threat Level Analysis System (ATLAS) or third parties, OCI can detect and investigate cyberthreats before, during, and after an attack. OCI’s ability to easily integrate into an existing cybersecurity stack enables security teams to investigate and remediate cyberthreats more quickly.

Winning the Global InfoSec Award is further validation of NETSCOUT’s commitment to fighting the good fight against cyberattackers in today’s highly complex, connected world.
