Intelligent Waves (IW), a leading IT integrator that delivers mission-focused multi-domain operational expertise and innovation to the Government through high-impact technology solutions, is proud to announce we have won the Editor’s Choice as the Best Cloud Workload Protection solution from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine. 

“Intelligent Waves is thrilled to receive one of the most prestigious and coveted cybersecurity awards in the world from Cyber Defense Magazine during their 10th anniversary as an independent cybersecurity news and information provider.  We knew the competition would be tough, and with top judges who are leading infosec experts from around the globe, we couldn’t be more pleased,” said John Hammes, Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer for Intelligent Waves.

“Intelligent Waves’ Phantom Cyber-Defense Solution embodies three major features we judges look for to become winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats today, providing a cost-effective solution, and innovating in unexpected ways that can help stop the next breach” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.

IW’s Phantom Next Generation solution provides the ability for organizations to access foreign points of presence to conduct remote open-source information gathering and research while at the same time protecting organizations and individuals from exposure to foreign intelligence. Additionally, the unclassified but secure, cloud-based capability enables telework because it does not require access to a classified facility or network.

Government organizations can take advantage of a distributed, globally remote workforce in this way. Phantom takes advantage of all the capabilities of the GRAYPATH network to provide a low probability of detection, intercept, and exploitation of application traffic and obfuscate the user’s location. The Phantom platform matches the user’s digital signature with the intended point of presence. In addition, the user’s true IP, location, and data usage are obfuscated. At the same time, user-generated traffic is made to appear to originate from a remote point of presence (PoP) or interface server. In this way, the internet researcher can effectively “hide within the noise” of normal IP traffic.
