NSFOCUS Wins Microsoft Mitigation Bypass Bounty Award For Fourth Consecutive Year.
NSFOCUS Security Labs Researcher Zhang Yunhai Is Recognized For Exceptional Security Contribution; Consecutive Win Streak Sets New Milestone
Santa Clara, Ca. June 22, 2016 – NSFOCUS, a global network and application security provider, today announced that it has received the prestigious Microsoft Mitigation Bounty Award for the fourth consecutive year. NSFOCUS is the only company to have received this honor four times in a row, demonstrating the company’s commitment to comprehensive and innovative threat research and analysis.
The Microsoft Mitigation Bounty Award is part of a broader initiative by Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) aimed at providing a way to harness the collective intelligence and capabilities of security researchers to help further protect customers. Launched in 2013, the program gives talented researchers around the world an opportunity to report truly novel exploitation techniques against protections built into the latest version of Microsoft operating systems. The program is designed to help Microsoft improve security by leaps, instead of capturing one vulnerability at a time.
“We are honored to receive this award from Microsoft for the fourth consecutive year and are pleased to see our threat intelligence researchers receive the recognition they deserve”, said Allan Thompson, COO of NSFOCUS IB. “Keeping pace with today’s cyber-threat landscape requires a deep understanding of threat actors, vectors and the latest vulnerabilities for critical assets. This award demonstrates the extensive research and analysis that informs all of our cloud, network and application security products, proving the value of our solutions for our enterprise customers.”
Modern cyber attacks are more frequent, complex and destructive than ever and they often result in loss of revenue and theft of vital data. NSFOCUS is taking a unique approach to helping customers defend themselves by providing an advanced network security platform using the latest threat intelligence to accurately detect malicious behavior. The company has combined this approach with a flexible deployment model that offers customers on-premises appliances, virtual software appliances and cloud-delivered security services. These diverse and flexible offerings make it easy for customers to gain access to advanced security to protect their valued assets.
The NSFOCUS network and cloud security platform includes DDoS protection solutions (ADS/NTA/ADSM and Cloud DPS), web application security products (WAF and WVSS) and next generation IPS (NGIPS). These products can be deployed separately, but also work in tandem to provide comprehensive, end-to-end threat protection from a single source.
