Best Network Security Enterprise Firewall – Winner
Best Privileged Access Management Solution – Finalist
Cryptzone’s approach to security is unique, disrupting traditional models of network access control to better mitigate threats from the outside and within.
The GSN 2015 Homeland Security Awards Program was organized to honor the distinguished vendors of IT Security and Physical Security products and solutions and the dedicated federal, state, county and municipal government agencies, whose combined efforts keep our nation secure.
The homeland security field has been the scene of an unprecedented proliferation of brilliant security technologies in IT and physical security, including a dramatic convergence of technologies between the two fields. Working in tandem with technology vendors, government agencies at all levels have introduced increasingly effective strategies for dealing with the threats to our security, whether domestic or foreign in origin.
Now in its 7th year, the GSN Homeland Security Awards Program is widely considered to be one of the most prestigious awards programs covering the broad Homeland Security field.
AppGate – A ‘Segment of One’ for Secure, Granular and Efficient Access Control
AppGate is an integrated security gateway that provides application and service-specific authentication and authorization for controlling access inside and from outside the perimeter. A context-aware architecture enables access to be granted based on user-specific variables, including location, device and role. Firewall rules aren’t written once and saved forever, but are created and enforced in real time when access is requested. This simplifies the user access problem and eliminates over-entitled network access. Drawing on user context, AppGate dynamically creates a secure, encrypted network ‘segment of one’ that’s tailored for each user session. And AppGate provides exhaustive forensic evidence of access to systems and documents for compliance auditors.
