ROHNERT PARK, CA--(Marketwire - March 1, 2010) -  Red Condor today announced that Network Products Guide has named Red Condor's Message Assurance Gateway (MAG) network appliance as winner of the 2010 Product Innovation Awards in the anti-spam hardware solution category. This annual venerated award recognizes and honors vendors, large and small, from all over the world with innovative and ground-breaking products that are bringing essential and incremental changes and are setting the bar higher for others in all areas of information technology. Network Products Guide is the industry's leading IT research and advisory guide. This is the second consecutive year that Red Condor has been recognized for innovation by the Guide.

Red Condor's MAG appliances are fully managed systems that provide enterprise-level email security for small and medium-sized businesses, enterprises, Internet Service Providers and telecom companies. The appliances do not require ongoing filter tuning or administration and are supported by Red Condor's Zero Minute Defense Network, which gathers real-time knowledge from its worldwide sensor network to rapidly create new detection and protection rules. These rules are then pushed out continuously to the MAG appliances. The devices are available with Red Condor's Vx Technology™, which provides resiliency and redundancy leveraging in-the-cloud computing for load sharing, disaster recovery and failover, and TLS Encryption, which automatically encrypts every inbound and outbound email. 

"Innovation is not just about new products alone," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief at Network Products Guide. "To succeed, companies need to see innovation not as a one-time errand, but as something that has to be continuously evolving and improved upon over and over again. This requires putting greater focus on customer needs and making innovation the center of company's way of developing better solutions. Innovative products such as Red Condor's MAG appliances are changing the way companies fight against spam, virus and phishing attacks while improving email security and management."

"For Red Condor, innovation is what differentiates our technology from the dozens of me-too anti-spam and anti-virus solutions on the market," said Dr. Tom Steding, chief executive officer of Red Condor. "Network Products Guide's recognition of our MAG appliances further validates our products as excellence-in-class and that we are staying ahead of the curve. Despite winning this award last year, to continue to combat the scammers, we simply cannot sit back and admire what we have done. We have to keep innovating, and it will ultimately be this commitment that will allow us beat the cyber criminals and meet our customer needs."
