Our Security Suite is the ideal security solution for any government agency
Tampa, FL (PRWEB) February 10, 2009
Ceelox, a veteran-owned small business headquartered in Tampa, Florida, received their GSA schedule contract # GS-35F-0187V. Ceelox products have been available on the GSA Advantage! for over 6 months but now they are available through Ceelox directly.
Ceelox products authenticate computer users with fingerprints and protect data with government grade encryption. Ceelox's tools can assist federal agencies in complying with Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Directive 06-16 - Protection of Sensitive Agency Information.
Ceelox is a strategic alliance partner with The Ashcroft Group LLC, run by former U.S. Senator and U.S. Attorney General, John D. Ashcroft. "The demand for secure solutions continues to grow in civilian and defense markets," Ashcroft said. "Adding biometrics to government networks can help improve the trust among sharing partners."
"Biometrics plays a critical role in protecting government agencies from threats by locking down and controlling access to the computer networks and systems vital to national security," Gerry Euston, CEO, said.
"Passwords are the weakest form of access authentication, period. Increasing password complexity and requiring more frequent changes does little to increase security, but adds significant password administration and IT helpdesk costs. Biometrics, on the other hand, offers the strongest form of real-time identity access management available today and substantially reduces costs" said Euston.
The Ceelox Security Suite™ addresses the three most critical IT security needs; identity access management, data encryption and email security. Ceelox Vault™ is the encryption solution available for desktops or on portable USB flash drives. New Vault Stick drives are available with or without fingerprint scanners. "Our Security Suite is the ideal security solution for any government agency," Euston said.
Ceelox's GSA Schedule award is a Multiple Award Schedule contract for Schedule 70 (the procurement of IT products, services and solutions). The contract is good for five years.
