Redwood City, Calif. – April 20, 2015 – ThreatStream® (RSA booth #S2727), the leading provider of an enterprise-class threat intelligence platform, announced today that Cyber Defense Magazine, an information security magazine, has named ThreatStream winner of the Cutting Edge award in the Enterprise Security Solutions category.  The magazine selected ThreatStream and its Optic™ platform as a winner after many months of review and judging by leading independent information security experts. 

“We’re thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that’s why ThreatStream has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine.  Some of the best INFOSEC defenses come from these kinds of forward-thinking players who think outside of the box,” said Pierluigi Paganini, editor-in-chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.
