ATLANTA and WASHINGTON, Jan. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Gideon Technologies, the leading provider of information security solutions that automate and orchestrate enterprise IT security and risk management, announces earning the OVAL Repository Top Contributor Award for the 4th quarter of 2009. OVAL is an international, information security, community standard sponsored by the National Cyber Security Division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. This is the fourth quarter in a row that Gideon has been named a Top Contributor for making significant contributions of new or modified content to the OVAL Repository, which helps make the repository a gold standard of open information security content.

Top Contributor Awards are granted each quarter to organizations exceeding a threshold of submissions of new definitions or modifications to existing Repository content.
