Crossbeam X-Series Security Platform Wins Editors’ Choice Award From China Information World


BOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Crossbeam Systems, Inc., the leading provider of next-generation security platforms for high-performance networks, today announced that its X-Series Next Generation Security Platform has won the China Information World 2008 Editors’ Choice award in the Security Service Gateway category.

Considered one of China’s most influential technical publications, China Information World evaluates products annually based on performance, end user relevancy, user surveys and market response. The Editors’ Choice awards are given by a committee of the magazine’s editors searching for the best in technology innovation and the future leaders of the information industry in China.

“It is a great honor for Crossbeam’s X-Series to be selected for this award by the leading IT publication in China,” said Chet Gapinski, Crossbeam’s vice president of engineering. “Crossbeam has been well received in China by enterprises that demand extremely reliable, high-performance and carrier-class delivery of security services over their networks. This recognition is an important indicator of our growing presence and success in the country.”

Crossbeam has made significant inroads in China with leading partners such as Digital China and customers that comprise heads of industry, including telecommunications providers China Netcom Group Corporation, China Telecom and China Unicom; as well as State Grid Corporation of China, the world’s largest electric power transmission and distribution company; and FAW Group, one of the “Big Five” Chinese automobile manufacturers.

“We also want to offer a special thanks to our partner Beijing Huahuan Electronics, a leading telecommunications equipment manufacturer, who played a key role in helping us win this award,” added Gapinski.

Crossbeam’s X-Series is the only scalable, carrier-class network platform on the market that can virtualize multiple best-of-breed security applications on a single chassis and intelligently control traffic flows at speeds of up to 40 Gbps. A single X-Series platform can replace entire network infrastructure segments, including security appliances, load balancers, switches and network cabling.
