The ThreatStream Optic™ threat intelligence platform is designed to improve the way in which enterprises and government agencies consume, use and share threat intelligence. In little more than a year since its introduction, more than 1,900 security analysts and 750 organizations are using the ThreatStream platform to track more than five million threat indicators. ThreatStream automates the arduous task of feeding threat information into an organization's existing security infrastructure, organizes and optimizes work-flows by enabling community collaboration and analysis across industries, and gives customers complete control of who they share data with, how much they share and the circumstances under which they share.

“Best Security Company of the Year is a real honor – one we will strive to earn not just this year, but every year,” said Hugh Njemanze, CEO of ThreatStream. “We thank Info Security Products Guide for this award recognition, as it is validation that we’ve tapped a very real need for comprehensive protection from cyber threats. With data breaches and threats at an all-time high, it’s more important than ever for organizations to have access to community-vetted, actionable threat intelligence that helps them understand – and defend against – the most urgent risks to the business.”

More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated, and their average scores determined the 2015 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners. Winners were announced during the awards dinner and presentation held on April 20, 2015, in San Francisco and attended by the finalists, judges and industry peers.

Last week at the RSA Conference, ThreatStream also announced the first threat intelligence iOS app for the Apple Watch, which will enable security operation center (SOC) analysts to receive and respond to threat alerts triggered by the Optic platform regardless of where they are.
