They key to mitigating cybercrimes is disrupting and dismantling the actors perpetrating such offenses. The next great fight is set to take part in the cyber domain. The goal is to disrupt these attacks and the entities initiating them before they can even get started. With the increase of federal resources allocated to this initiative, we have proven successful in frustrating threat efforts by malicious actors, foreign governments, and criminals.
Protection of these critical infrastructure assets — such as emergency services, government facilities, energy, nuclear plants, and transportation — is necessary for national security, public safety, and economic growth. The first step is having those with critical infrastructure equipped with the right cybersecurity resources to secure networks and disrupt threat actors without sacrificing the user experience.
The password gets a bad rap. Sure – most of it might be warranted, but the password is simply guilty by association. The true culprit of the weak security threshold passwords are perceived to have is the insufficient technological process that underlies traditional password-based authentication – the insecure symmetric method of the classic password.
Here at ZKX Solutions, prospective customers or business partners often ask us how we go about structuring a good defensive cyber security posture. In this article, we disucuss the importance of three categories that fully encompass a good defensive cybersecurity posture: policy, technology, and culture.
People often link security and encryption together. While they go hand in hand, they are in fact two entirely different concepts. Security is all about protecting data and information, and encryption is just one of the means of accomplishing this.
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.”
