Protecting the network, and the services behind it, is crucial to the security strategy of all organizations. One of Cryptzone’s core beliefs is that organizations need to limit the entitlements of all users to more effectively control access and limit the damage that can be done in the event of a breach.

The US Patent and Trademark Office recently issued Cryptzone U.S. Patent 9,148,408 B1 for its “systems and methods for protecting network devices.” The new patent demonstrates Cryptzone’s unique ability to determine, identify and secure user access to a network and the applications and services behind it. The patent is related to the core mechanism used in our AppGate technology and describes the way it uses a central policy server (controller) to create user-specific tokens that define network resource entitlement, enforced across a set of distributed gateways. Cryptzone’s AppGate solution delivers the ability to dynamically manage access and entitlements to reduce risk and maximize operational efficiency.

Cryptzone has invested heavily in world-class research that enables us to uniquely identify and protect microsegments within the network. The US Patent and Trademark Office has recognized the innovations that Cryptzone is bringing to market. Our differentiating technology creates a ‘segment of one’ between a user and a single resource on a network, providing highly granular, intelligent and secure access control.
