Fort Lee, NJ - Whale today announced that its Intelligent Application Gateway Express Edition was named as a "Product of the Year" recipient in the Mobile Security category in TechTarget's SeachMobileComputing.com 2005 "Products of the Year" awards.
The Intelligent Application Gateway Express Edition was chosen from among 130 new products submitted for consideration to SearchMobileComputing.com editors in four categories. The awards were judged by the editors of SeachMobileComputing.com, in conjunction with a team of users, industry experts, analysts and consultants. Judges selected the Products of the Year among mobile products introduced, upgraded and shipped between September 30, 2004 and October 1, 2005.
Whale's Express Edition provides an out-of-the-box, policy-driven anywhere access solution, ensuring that enterprises of all sizes can easily and cost effectively extend their existing application infrastructure while remaining policy compliant and ensuring the integrity of their networks. The Express Edition, which scales to 250 concurrent users, includes Whale's lauded security and access functionality comprised of its SSL VPN, application security and endpoint security components. The solution provides access to optimized modules for key business applications including widely-used portals, CRM, ERP and email applications.
"Mobility and security go together like water and oil, and one vendor defied the laws of nature and mixed the two," SearchMobileComputing.com wrote in its review of Whale. It added: "This SSL VPN brings enterprise-class policy enforcement for small to midsized businesses (SMBs). Its most compelling feature is the way it works completely on the application layer without having to resort to lower layer tunneling. Some additional features include SSL VPN resource cloaking, application firewalling, integrated authentication and authorization, and dynamic policy enforcement."
The winners were selected based on innovation, performance, ease of integration into existing environments, ease of use and manageability, functionality and value.
