RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - December 22, 2009) - AlgoSec®, the leading provider of firewall operations and security risk management solutions, today announced that its two flagship solutions AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer and AlgoSec FireFlow® together received SC Magazine's "Best of 2009" honor as one of the industry's leading policy management solutions. The recognition follows the products' recent five-star rating and "SC Recommended" designation in SC Magazine's Policy Management Group Test.

SC Magazine's Policy Management Group Test looked at seven products used to enforce network, security, software, hardware, and encryption configuration policies across the enterprise. Management, enforcement, auditing and reporting on various security and network systems configurations were among the core criteria requirements of each product, while documentation, ease of use, features and functionality, reporting, alerting and support were among the categories SC Magazine used to evaluate each product.

AlgoSec received high marks in all categories with its depth features, ease of use, performance, and support each notching individual five-star ratings. Noting the joint AlgoSec solution as a feature-rich, full-service offering, SC Magazine called out AlgoSec's high level of functionality as well as its broad level of integration with leading devices.

Its wide-ranging integration capabilities were recently broadened even further with the release of the AlgoSec Firewall Analyzer® 5.3 featuring the new AlgoSec Extension Framework and out-of-the-box support for eight more security devices.

"This recognition as one of SC Magazine's 'Best of 2009' is testament not only to the tireless efforts of our internal teams, but to the cooperative and open relationship we have with our customers and partners, each of whom has played in integral role in shaping the AlgoSec solutions into what they are today," said said Yuval Baron, co-founder and CEO of AlgoSec. "We share this honor with them and continue to pledge our ongoing commitment to delivering the most innovative technologies for policy management, compliance and other vital areas of firewall operations and security risk management."
