Enea’s Qosmos ixEngine Wins Gold in the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards

Enea is pleased to announce that Qosmos ixEngine®, the most widely deployed traffic classification engine in cybersecurity and networking, received the Gold award for Embedded Security in the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.

Embedded as a software component in cybersecurity products, Enea’s Qosmos ixEngine delivers the crucial traffic intelligence needed to understand network activity and identify suspicious behavior, all of which leads to faster and more effective malware detection.

Qosmos ixEngine analyzes data packets in real time up to the application level using classification technologies including Deep Packet Inspection (DPI). Security solution vendors value the engine for its extensive protocol recognition, unique security metadata and industry-leading accuracy.

This accuracy extends to the classification of fully encrypted traffic flows, providing security vendors with critical visibility as the use of encryption to mask advanced cyberattacks surges. The ability to classify encrypted flows is given a performance boost by the First Packet Advantage feature included in Qosmos ixEngine. It enables security specialists to accurately identify applications from the very first packet in a flow for the instantaneous execution of application-specific security rules.

Jean-Philippe Lion, Senior Vice President of the Enterprise Business Unit at Enea, says: “We are delighted that Enea’s Qosmos ixEngine received the Gold award for Embedded Security in the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. This recognition underscores our commitment to continuously innovate for the benefit of our customers, who must differentiate themselves in a competitive marketplace while combatting adversaries who use ever-more sophisticated techniques to evade traditional defenses.”

The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards honor individuals, products and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation and leadership in information security. Winners are determined by the strength of their nomination and the popular vote by members of the information security community.

"We congratulate Enea on winning Gold for Qosmos ixEngine in the Embedded Security category of the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards," said Holger Schulze, CEO of Cybersecurity Insiders and founder of the Information Security Community which organizes the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. "The 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards program was particularly competitive this year and winners represent the very best in innovation and excellence for cybersecurity."
