BlackRidge develops, markets and supports a family of security products that provide a next generation cyber security solution for protecting enterprise networks and cloud services. With our military proven and patented technology, network devices and server resources located in enterprise datacenters, clinics, hospitals, and cloud systems, are better protected, less expensive to protect, and less vulnerable to compromise from cyber-attacks.
Our identity-based approach to network and cloud security offers superior performance compared to legacy network security approaches, reduces the total cost of ownership for organizations by eliminating malicious and unwanted traffic from networks and systems, and it supports legacy devices and systems that cannot be updated. By integrating with existing identity systems for policy, BlackRidge separates security policy from network addresses and topology, and automates policy administration, making it ideal for legacy and new systems, dynamic cloud environments.
BlackRidge Transport Access Control (TAC) is a fundamental invention that addresses a security gap in how the Internet operates: the inability to authenticate network traffic sources. Without authentication, unidentified and unauthorized users and devices can scan, probe and access networks and cloud services. This security gap is exploited in all cyber-attacks through the process of network scanning and reconnaissance, and it has been further exposed and magnified by cloud services, mobile connectivity, and the Internet of Things (IoT).
BlackRidge products were originally funded by the US DoD, and have been certified by the DoD, and tested and implemented by the Department of Energy, intelligence agencies, major IT vendors such as IBM and Ciena, and by major financial institutions.
