He continued, "We set out to revolutionize the way cyber threats are discovered, exposed, and mitigated and we have done just that. We are very pleased that our products and solutions have passed the U.S. government's stringent testing and are now on its Approved Products List. This is a testament to the relentless vision and hard work we've committed ourselves to create the best products in the world."
