1st September 2015 - Ludlow, UK. Idappcom the specialist network security assessment and Snort rules vendor has been named as a finalist in the 2015 BCS & Computing UK IT Industry Awards for its advanced penetration testing tool, Traffic IQ v2.2.0.
The BCS & Computing Awards are a widely recognised national platform for the entire IT industry to celebrate best practice, innovation and excellence. Idappcom/Traffic IQ (TIQ) has been included as a finalist in the Security Innovation category following a rigorous selection process by a panel of independent IT experts.
Traffic IQ uses captured traffic files to test whether firewalls and intrusion detection/prevention systems in corporate networks are correctly configured to block the latest malicious exploits used by hackers to gain access to secure areas of the network. Firewalls and IPS sensors are designed to prevent known exploit traffic for reaching the target servers.
TIQ's innovative penetration testing software provides CSO's and security consultants with invaluable information highlighting any sensor in the network that is not operating as it should so that its rules can be quickly updated before an actual breach occurs.
Ray Bryant, Idappcom's CEO commented "Clearly we are delighted with this industry recognition, which puts TIQ at the forefront of the security testing sector, where we always believed it belongs. It is great to know that our peers feel the same way."
Paul Fletcher, Group CEO, BCS, the Charted Institute for IT said "As the Chartered Institute for IT I would like to congratulate this year's finalists. They showcase not only the innovation and professionalism of those working in IT, but also demonstrate the importance of IT in delivering economic and societal benefits."
Editor of Computing, Stuart Sumner added "I would like to congratulate the finalists. The UK IT Industry Awards are rigorously judged by a panel of peers and experts and to be announced as a finalist really is a great achievement."
Winners of each category will be announced at a prestigious award ceremony in London on 18th of November.
