Blue Ridge Networks Receives 2019 IoT Platforms Leadership Award from IoT Evolution

Chantilly, VA – March 10, 2020 – Blue Ridge Networks announced today that LinkGuard has received a 2019 IoT Platforms Leadership Award from IoT Evolution magazine, the leading publication covering IoT technologies. This award honors the organizations and platforms that enable the widespread deployment of cyber-secure IoT devices, networks and services.  

LinkGuard facilitates secure and segmented connectivity for organizations, taking proven cybersecurity technology, developed and battle-tested in the most rigorous environments, and applying it to critical assets that need robust security. Using a zero-trust overlay, LinkGuard isolates and contains networks and critical infrastructure and makes them impregnable to cyber-attacks.  Furthermore, LinkGuard enables remote access to these secure enclaves without compromising security and user experience.  Because LinkGuard utilizes a standalone hardware root of trust platform, it is flexible enough to work with any existing network or infrastructure and is immune to moves, adds, changes, and deletes, which typically plague other solutions.  

“We are honored to be recognized by IoT Evolution with this prestigious award,” said Srini Mirmira, President of Blue Ridge Networks. “LinkGuard was recognized as a leading platform for IoT security because it provides protection where traditional methods, such as VPNs and Firewalls, fail. By providing an industry-vetted and time-tested network segmentation and data protection system, LinkGuard has proven to be critical asset for industrial control systems, Building Automation Systems and SCADA Networks.”  

“The solutions selected for the IoT Evolution IoT Platforms Leadership Award reflect innovation driving the fast-growing Internet of Things marketplace. It is my honor to congratulate Blue Ridge Networks for their innovative work and contribution to this rapidly evolving industry,” said Carl Ford, CEO of Crossfire Media, a co-publisher of IoT Evolution Magazine. 

“It is my pleasure to recognize LinkGuard, an innovative solution that earned Blue Ridge Networks the 2019 IoT Evolution IoT Platforms Leadership Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “I look forward to seeing more innovation from Blue Ridge Networks in the future.”
