On November 24th, 2016, during the 2nd Technological Network Security Forum organised by the National Chamber of Commerce for Electronics and Telecommunications (KIGEiT) under the Honorary Patronage of the Ministry of Energy and the Ministry of Digitalisation, redGuardian — a product of Atende Software from the Atende Capital Group — won the ′BRONZE GATE′ [′SPIŻOWA BRAMA′] award.
The distinction is dedicated to companies offering security solutions for technological networks and implementing projects solving complex aspects of ICT system security, with particular focus on SCADA system protection and data protection in technological networks. The award recommends exceptionally innovative and efficient solutions from the area of IT security and cybersecurity for technological networks.
redGuardian is a service provided ′in the cloud′. It was developed for protection against DDoS (distributed denial of service) attacks which have recently become particularly popular. This service is based on proprietary software developed by engineers at Atende Software. Its key feature is the possibility to process network packages in a very efficient manner — over 100 million per second on a single PC server. This represents approx. 100 times higher efficiency than that achieved with the use of general purpose operating systems, e.g. Linux. The solution developed by Atende Software is unique at the national scale. The company is the only entity in the domestic market providing protection services against DDoS attacks on the basis of its own solution.
Przemysław Frasunek from Atende Software received the ′BRONZE GATE′ award at the head office of PSE in Konstancin-Jeziorna.
