Award highlights innovative, cutting-edge, and forward-thinking security solutions

Alexandria, VA (24 September 2020)ASIS International, the world's largest membership organization for security management professionals, celebrates INTRUSION Shield, the recipient of its 2020 Innovative Product Award (IPA)—being recognized at this week’s Global Security Exchange Plus (GSX+) virtual experience.

The ASIS International IPA competition recognizes the security industry’s most innovative new products, services, and technology solutions. These peer-distinguished solutions address critical industry trends and reflect the best of the innovation shaping the security industry. INTRUSION Shield follows in the footsteps of 2019 Judge’s Choice recipient, Ouster’s OS-1-64 Lidar.

INTRUSION Shield is a combination of plug-and-play hardware, software, global data, and AI services that provide organizations with the most robust defense possible. This security-as-a-service blocks traffic and Internet flow, halting malicious behavior based on metrics that other intrusion protection products don’t have the ability to see or characterize.

“We are honored to receive the Innovative Product Award, as it validates our belief that INTRUSION Shield will truly change the landscape of cybersecurity,” said Jack B. Blount, President and CEO, INTRUSION. “Businesses are under attack every second of every day by cybercriminals. The ability to protect businesses, small to large, as well as our government is both necessary and critical to keep our economy running smoothly. Stopping cybercrime has unfortunately become mandatory to the future growth of our economies.”

At GSX+, INTRUSION is recognized for its winning product alongside other innovative product submissions from AXIS Communications, Bosch Security Systems, HID Global, and Security & Safety Things.
