Winners!: APEX/IFSA 2019 Awards

Galgus’ partners, VT Miltope, have won the “In-Flight Connectivity Innovation” award during the APEX Expo in Los Angeles (USA). Incorporating technologies from RazorSecure and Galgus, VT Miltope has developed wireless cabin networks that keep up with evolving cyber threats. Using machine learning, the software-based solution detects anomalies in network behavior patterns, and becomes smarter with every iteration.

Innovations across the airline passenger experience industry have been recognized at the first-ever combined awards ceremony celebrating the achievements of both APEX and IFSA members. Over 40 professionals from both associations have determined the top three finalists in each category and a separate panel of esteemed media voted on the winners.

APEX (Airline Passenger Experience Association), is a network of the world’s leading airlines, suppliers and related companies committed to elevating the level of the airline passenger experience.

VT Miltope achieved this award by merging technologies from RazorSecure and Galgus and developed wireless cabin networks that keep up with ever evolving cyber threats.

It also demonstrates that APEX and the industry recognize the pressing need for cybersecurity.”

Galgus’ Co-Founder and CEO, Jose Gonzalez, said about the award, ” It has been a long way, five years since we started working with VT Miltope, but the strategy and innovations introduced are unique and it was a question of time to reap the benefits. It’s a pleasure to work with VT Miltope’s team to achieve this”, adding: “Our Software-Defined WiFi philosophy, which separates software from hardware, is enhancing synergies between our companies, facilitating a highly productive working environment that benefits the customer, both in terms of cost effectiveness and added value to the wireless network infrastructure”.
