“This report is a seminal contribution to the field of enterprise security. We were happy to provide our expertise to the new report and excited to be named one of 2017 TAG Cyber’s Distinguished Vendors.” --Barry Field, CEO of Cryptzone.
Waltham, Mass. (PRWEB) October 13, 2016
Cryptzone, a provider of dynamic, context-aware network security software, today announced the joint release of the first-annual 2017 TAG Cyber Security Annual—Practical Handbook and Reference Guide for the Working Cyber Security Professional. The company is part of an industry collective of 48 of the nation’s foremost cyber security vendors participating in the report, published by The Amoroso Group (TAG Cyber) following in-depth industry research and analysis. 2017 TAG Cyber Security Annual also named Cryptzone as the only Distinguished Vendor in the VPN/Secure Access Providers category.
The report details a new urgency for how America’s commercial, financial and utility sectors respond to escalating and increasingly complex cyber attacks. It includes a comprehensive analysis of the cyber security industry with specific insights from C-level executives and thought leaders. Dr. Edward G. Amoroso, former chief security officer of AT&T and author of six books on cyber security, spearheaded writing and researching the report.
“This report is a seminal contribution to the field of enterprise security. We were happy to provide our expertise to the new report and excited to be named one of 2017 TAG Cyber’s Distinguished Vendors,” said Barry Field, CEO of Cryptzone. “Cryptzone’s approach to ‘segment of one’ protection is highly consistent with Dr. Amoroso’s concept of reloading the enterprise with superior tools and protecting customers against today’s sophisticated cybercriminals.”
The report highlights Cryptzone’s approach, noting that, “The market for VPN/Secure Access is healthy and growing, but will shift from gateways at the enterprise perimeter to ‘per app’ VPNs that are embedded invisibly into mobile access to cloud workloads. CISO teams should look for creative vendor implementations of this concept, such as the Cryptzone approach of a so-called ‘segment of one,’ which is essentially a virtual private session between a client and an application.”
Cryptzone recently announced the newest version of AppGate, the company’s ‘segment of one’ Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) solution. AppGate provides a way for organizations to easily and incrementally deploy a Software-Defined Perimeter solution, with customers going into production in as little as a few weeks. For larger enterprises, AppGate provides enterprise-class features such as high availability, linear scalability, and a distributed architecture.
“Cryptzone’s end-to-end protection for cloud access exemplifies the type of strong controls that will be required for cloud computing,” explained Dr. Amoroso.
The 2017 TAG Cyber Security Annual has been written for information security and technology professionals in all industries with a special focus on U.S. infrastructure companies, including energy, telecommunications, manufacturing, health care and utilities. The report will be available at no cost to all users as a free download on Cryptzone’s website and TAG Cyber’s website.
The handbook is centered around a revolutionary new approach to cyber security that calls on tech leaders of the largest and most important American enterprises to explode existing infrastructure to disperse data across multiple platforms, offload sensitive information into secure cloud-based solutions, and reload systems, policies and personnel to better position them to effectively defend against cyber attacks that are not only likely, but occurring at an increasing rate.
It includes three volumes:
- Volume 1: TAG Cyber Security Fifty Controls details the fifty primary control areas required for CISO teams to be effective in this new era of cyber security. These areas include traditional controls such as firewall platforms and two-factor authentication along with non-traditional controls, such as security recruiting and security R&D. For each control area, an extensive list of supporting vendors is included to help jumpstart local source selection.
- Volume 2: Interviews with Distinguished Vendor Principals includes in-depth conversations with the thought leaders and distinguished vendor principals. It offers a brief digest of the expert guidance and cyber security insights offered by these industry authorities during the research stages of this report.
- Volume 3: TAG Cyber Security Vendor Listings serves as a reference guide to the cyber security industry. This compressive review includes nearly 1,400 vendors this year, with an additional 500 vendors to be incorporated into the 2018 report.
