Getting on the GSA Schedule has been a key Ceelox goal
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) June 11, 2008
Ceelox, Biometric Security Software made Simple, announced today that their solutions have been added to the GSA Schedule. "Protecting our government is paramount," says John D. Ashcroft. The former U.S. Attorney General in the Bush administration, Ashcroft is a strategic alliance partner with Ceelox Inc., an industry leader in biometric software and encryption solutions.
Ceelox offers a Security Suite™ of biometric tools designed to address the three most critical security needs; identity access management, data and file encryption and email security. Biometric software controls computer and data access with live fingerprint identification. "Biometrics plays a critical role in protecting government agencies," he says, "by locking down and controlling access to the computer networks and systems vital to national security"
Now, Envoy Data Corporation -- a premier distributor, integrator and aggregator for IT products in network security and government since 1993 - adds Ceelox software to products they offer the U.S. government. Envoy offers their products to the federal government on the Government Service Administration (GSA) Schedule. The Schedule provides 11 million commercial products and services government agencies can order directly from approved GSA Schedule contractors. GSA Schedule placement brings the two companies together in a new and exciting opportunity. It allows government agencies to purchase biometric fingerprint identification and unbroken data encryption.
"Getting on the GSA Schedule has been a key Ceelox goal," said Gerry Euston, CEO of Ceelox, recently. "We are thrilled to expand our strong relationship with Envoy Data."
"Passwords are the weakest form of access authentication, period. Increasing password complexity and requiring more frequent replacement does little to increase security. Biometrics, on the other hand, offers the strongest form of real-time identity access management available today," said Euston. "Our Security Suite is the ideal security solution for any government agency."
John Guerrero, President of Envoy Data, echoed Euston's theme: "We are pleased that Ceelox has selected Envoy Data to represent their products on the GSA Schedule. Ceelox's innovative products meet the needs of our government clients and are a great fit for our continued efforts to bring biometric security solutions to market."
Ceelox Security Suite™ offers:
- Elimination of exposure inherent in password and token access
- Protection of sensitive data against theft, loss and misuse
- Government grade AES 256 and/or FIPS 140-2 data encryption
The GSA offers several different contracts and forms of purchase for government agencies, including a credit card.
