MOUNT LAUREL, NJ – April 18, 2018 – NetQuest Corporation, a leading manufacturer of cyber surveillance solutions, today received a 2018 InfoSec Award from by Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM).

As one of the industry’s leading electronic information security media outlets, CDM evaluated more than 3,000 companies for their innovative endeavors and came away with 500 finalists and 200 winners. NetQuest was recognized as a “Hot Company” in the category of Threat Intelligence.

“Congratulations to NetQuest Corporation, a company that made great strides in adding big data analytics to help cyber intelligence agents scan long-haul transport networks for signs of cyber threats,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine. “We scoured the globe and found nearly 3,000 companies who create and offer the most respected InfoSec products and services. NetQuest’s efforts to expand access and monitoring capabilities shows a visionary approach to threat intelligence and that will enable a more concerted response to the rising tide of cyberattacks.”

While the threat of cyber attacks increases, long-haul optical networks are undergoing sweeping changes as traffic volume skyrockets over intercontinental submarine and emerging 5G mobile networks. NetQuest has demonstrated leadership in the search for cyber threats by introducing advanced capabilities through automation, network orchestration, all-optical switching, big data and analytics to its line of Interceptor and Alpine Patrol monitoring and access platforms.
