FireHost, Inc. Selected as a Finalist for 2010 CODiE Awards

DALLAS, TX – The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) has announced that FireHost, a Secure Web hostingcompany, has been selected as a finalist for the prestigious CODiE Awards in the Best Security Solution category. FireHost impressed the SIIA CODiE Award judges with its unique, enterprise-grade, virtualized hosting solution. The judges recognized that FireHost’s Secure Server solution fills a true void in the market by offering a hosting environment capable of delivering security and privacy comparable to a dedicated server with cloud-like scalability at a very attractive price point for companies of all sizes.

FireHost believes every business, regardless of size, should have the tools necessary to protect its customers’ information from hackers. In particular, businesses that handle personal and sensitive data online, retailers that engage in eCommerce, and companies that handle healthcare data, such as EHR application providers will benefit from FireHost’s affordable, compliance-ready Secure Server options. Since combining a secure infrastructure approach with new virtualization technology, FireHost has proven its’ ability to protect high profile websites like The Daily Caller, and The National Breast Cancer Foundation from malicious hacker attempts.

“We’re very excited to have been recognized by such a prominent force in the software industry. We’ve seen some very accomplished and game-changing companies wear the CODiE Award badge of honor, and we hope to share that accomplishment,” said Chris Drake, founder and CEO of FireHost.

“This is the twenty-fifth year we have recognized excellence in the software, education and information industries through the CODiE Awards program,” noted Ken Wasch, President of SIIA. “In this economic climate, companies are doing even more to innovate. FireHost has demonstrated a commitment to innovation and quality that is reflected in their selection as a finalist for the CODiE Awards. I am pleased and proud to have them listed among the candidates for Best Security Solution, and I wish them the best in the final round of voting.”

One hundred eighty-eight products from 136 companies were selected as finalists from more than 785 nominations submitted by 374 companies. Nominated products underwent an intensive review by subject matter experts, analysts, journalists, and others with deep experience in the field. All finalists may now be reviewed on the CODiE Awards Website at
