Zero Trust is doomed to forever be a moving target that organizations will only be able to sufficiently achieve with heightened awareness, agility, and, perhaps most importantly, an operating culture that is human-centered, progress-oriented, and not totally insufferable. These are things that cannot simply be purchased from the free market, despite what you might read on industry websites. These solutions literally must be architected, hence the A in ZTA.

In 2020 the world was rocked with multiple events that had never been seen before. One of these was the largest cyber security breach of the twenty-first century, SolarWinds. This breach created a snowball effect of supply chain problems that impacted thousands of organizations.
ZKX Solutions has successfully wrapped up two major technology exercises this fall: Cyber ANTX U.S. Army’s Project Convergence 22. During both exercises, ZKX Solutions put its market-disrupting cybersecurity software, the ZKX Engine, to the test and successfully met all mission execution criteria and stretch goals.
Since 1999 the Common Access Card (CAC) has been the norm for service members. The CAC has been the standard for so long that the industry has now created technology that far surpasses the CAC. The industry is moving from a net-centric to a data-centric approach. This shift is part of the call to “Kill the CAC.”
ZKX Solutions has been selected to participate in Project Convergence 22 Technology Gateway this fall. ZKX Solutions will be testing and demonstrating our market-disrupting cybersecurity software, the ZKX Engine. The ZKX Engine is a patent-pending, next-gen multi-factor authentication (MFA) software suite that enables seamless migration to Zero Trust networks.
ZKX Solutions has been selected to participate in the upcoming Advanced Naval Technology Exercise (ANTX). ZKX will be demonstrating our market-disrupting cybersecurity software, the ZKX Engine. The ZKX Engine is a patent-pending, next-gen multi-factor authentication (MFA) software suite that enables seamless migration to Zero Trust networks by enabling the most critical component: authentication.
In January 2022, the Executive Office of the President: Office of Management and Budget released a memorandum for executive departments and agencies. This memo is aligned with the executive order detailing the U.S. government’s shift to a Zero Trust enterprise. As President Biden stated in EO 14028, “Incremental improvements will not give us the security we need; instead, the Federal Government needs to make bold changes and significant investments to defend the vital institutions that underpin the American way of life.”
The Zero Trust security model requires a revolutionary shift from traditional authentication methods that have been in use for decades. While the DoD has mandated migration to zero-trust networks, most organizations are still unclear on how to get started. This briefing outlines why the road to zero trust networks logically starts with the ZKX MFA authentication engine.
ZKX Solutions is proud to announce that it has officially launched as an independent business unit of REDCOM Laboratories, Inc. ZKX Solutions is focused on developing the next generation of cyber defense technology designed to be more secure, dynamic, and flexible than conventional multi-factor authentication products.
What exactly does zero trust mean, and how do you get your organization there? For the uninitiated, “zero-trust” is not just a marketing buzzword or a meaningless veil constructed to cover a business’ empty and unfulfilled promises. “Zero-trust”, as a term, is a technical qualifier – meaning that the subject with which the adjective “zero-trust” adheres to the principles, guidelines, and functional specifications defined within the foundational NIST text designed to address what makes a network architecture a ZTA.
The first release of ZKX’s market-disrupting cybersecurity authentication software is ready for field exercises and laboratory testing. The ZKX software will provide government and military organizations with the authentication technology required to migrate their existing IT infrastructures to Zero Trust networks.
The Zero-Trust Architecture (ZTA) is not in itself a specific technology. Instead, it is a cutting-edge operational philosophy that security architects utilize to preserve the networks of today. Zero-Trust is, in its essence, a “never trust, always verify, and assume breach” thought process for modern cybersecurity.
