The 10 Coolest Network Security Products Of 2016 (So Far)
Fireglass Threat Isolation Platform
Launching from stealth in February after landing $20 million in Series A funding, Tel Aviv-based Fireglass offers an enterprise network security solution designed to isolate Web activity from the network, assuming all of it is bad. The Fireglass Threat Isolation Platform, available on premise or as-a-service, acts as an "air gap" between potential attacks from Web, email and documents, and the endpoint and Web applications, according to the company. This isolation approach is different from Secure Web Gateways, the company said, which for the most part rely on signatures to separate good traffic and Web activity from bad. CEO Guy Guzner, the former head of security products at Check Point Software Technologies, said the startup will focus its go-to-market strategy on the channel.
