OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwire - February 11, 2010) - Secure Passage today announced that Info Security Products Guide, the world's leading publication on security-related products and technologies, has named FireMon eVolution a finalist for the 2010 Global Product Excellence Awards in the Policy Management Solutions category. These prestigious awards recognize security and IT vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products and solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others across all technological industries.

In response to the growing demand for innovative firewall management, Secure Passage launched FireMon eVolution (5.0) in July 2009. FireMon eVolution is the industry's first firewall management solution to provide a comprehensive and integrated set of features, including three industry firsts: rule lifecycle documentation, traffic flow analysis, and a Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance reporting framework. The launch was a driving force behind Secure Passage's elevated sales in 2009, and it catapulted the company above its competitors as the preferred provider of firewall and network device policy management solutions.

"We are proud to be recognized as an industry leader whose product has been named a finalist by Info Security Products Guide," said Jody Brazil, president and CTO of Secure Passage. "Behind this success is our relentless drive to stay customer-focused. We believe this recognition from Info Security Products Guide is a clear validation of the fact that our products and services are delivering on our goal to solve the challenges of our existing and new customers."

The 2010 Global Product Excellence Award winners will be honored on March 18, 2010, at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco.
