Preventsys Wins Network World’s “Best of the Tests” Award
Testers impressed with elastic configurability, ability to use existing policy standards and create

CARLSBAD, Calif. – March 1, 2005 - Preventsys Inc., a pioneer in enterprise security management, today announced that its Policy & Regulatory Compliance system (previously named Network Audit and Policy Assurance system) has won the Network World “Best of the Tests” award in the security management category. With a near perfect score, Preventsys received one of the highest scores ever in a Network World test − a 4.9 out of a possible five points. Editors Christine Burns and Keith Shaw noted that “you can’t do much better than this.”
The Network World Lab Alliance gave Preventsys high marks in all categories for its elastic configurability with third-party security tools, its ability to utilize existing policy standards and to easily create new standards and regulatory controls specific to individual networks. Additionally, the Policy & Regulatory Compliance system’s abundance of reporting options and its expanding remediation measures impressed testers. Winners in each of ten categories were unveiled in the Feb. 28 issue of Network World.
“We are ecstatic that our Policy & Regulatory Compliance system has been recognized as the best product in Network World’s security management category. This award validates Preventsys’ commitment to building proactive products that allow IT auditors, executives and non-technical managers to understand IT security and its impact on regulatory compliance,” said Tom Rowley, chief executive officer of Preventsys. “Using the Policy & Regulatory Compliance system, organizations can prove that they are complying with the exact controls and requirements they've established with their auditors − not just report against static vendor templates on small parts of the infrastructure. Preventsys helps demonstrate regulatory compliance on a measurable, repeatable and objective basis across IT systems.”
The Preventsys Policy & Regulatory Compliance system tracks improvement over time, demonstrating compliance with regulations like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act on a regular basis - not just during an annual third-party audit. Working as a modular part of the Preventsys’ Enterprise Security Management system, this enterprise-class application gives automated feedback on security policy violations, threat risk and remediation success – continually alerting the IT department to what is out of compliance and what must be done about it.
Network World’s sixth annual Signature Series Best Products Issue highlights the best new products, services and practices in networking and the best new ideas on buying, building and managing networks. Network World selected the 42 products that registered the best performances in its hands-on testing program last year for its “Best of the Tests” finalist list, then whittled the list down to ten winners. In all, Network World tested and reported on a total of 260 enterprise products in 2004. Preventsys’ feature in the Best Products Issue can be found at
