SAN FRANCISCO and TEL AVIV, Israel,-- Guardicore, a leader in internal data center and cloud security, today announced that SC Magazine, the cybersecurity source, awarded a five-star rating to the Guardicore Centra Security Platform. For the third year in a row, Guardicore Centra earned a perfect overall score of five out of five stars and received high praise from SC Labs where reviewers once again noted that the Centra Security Platform had no weaknesses, citing "competitive advantages in visibility, micro-segmentation, breach detection and response."* 

Guardicore was also recently recognized as an Industry Innovator in the Virtualization and Cloud-based Security categories as part of the 2019 SC Media Reboot special coverage issue. Innovators are recognized for showcasing outstanding leadership and providing superior security products to the cybersecurity industry. Recognition by SC Magazine as an innovator for the third  year in a row demonstrates continued technological advances designed to protect the critical core of any organization.

"We are honored to, once again, be recognized for Guardicore's unique capabilities in virtualization and cloud security by SC Magazine," said Pavel Gurvich, CEO and co-founder of Guardicore. "We are grateful to SC Magazine for the Innovator and Five-Star acknowledgement of our solution's ability to simplify security management and apply micro-segmentation in data centers and clouds."

Delivering a solution that truly simplifies the management and enforcement of micro-segmented networks, according to SC Innovators, Guardicore's flagship product, the Centra Security Platform, provides the simplest and most intuitive way to apply micro-segmentation controls to reduce the attack surface and detect and control breaches within east-west traffic. Guardicore Centra covers virtually any environment, from legacy systems, hybrid environments or containerized applications, supporting requirements for both current and future-state data center and cloud architectures. This differentiation was also called out in the 2019 SC Labs review where the ability to have "micro-segmentation put policies onto Guardicore's most important offering in our opinion," enabling enforcement  of "policies across all data centers and clouds with agents like a massive distributed enforcement layer controlled from one centralized point."*
