Secure government and military networks without adding friction
Governments around the world are facing elevated cyber threats on multiple fronts, including:
- Intellectual property theft
- Ransomware attacks
- Damaging attacks against critical infrastructure
- Influence campaigns designed to undermine public trust
ZKX is uniquely positioned to help government agencies and military organizations secure their networks without adding friction to administrators or users. If your organization is vulnerable to a Manning, a Snowden, or a Teixeira attack, you need ZKX.
Our software has been rigorously tested and proven with both the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy in the following cyber exercises:
Proven with the U.S. Navy at Cyber ANTX 2022
As a part of the marked success of the ZKX Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Engine at Cyber ANTX 2022, ZKX Solutions was awarded exposure to a Commercial Solutions Opening (CSO), a certification that legally declares ZKX as “competed” in the eyes of the U.S. Government. This qualification enables ZKX to be acquired by any U.S. government entity without the need for ZKX products to be re-competed on the open market.
Proven with the U.S. Army at Project Convergence 2022
ZKX is currently being validated under U.S. Cyber Command and the U.S. Army Authority-to-Operate (ATO) validation process as a part of its participation in Cyber Quest 2023. This validation clears ZKX software to operate on military network systems and architectures.
Securing Critical Infrastructure
Defending the systems and assets that constitute “critical infrastructure” is vital to our national security. In March 2023, The White House issued a comprehensive document outlining the National Cybersecurity Strategy, making it clear that the U.S. government will be placing renewed emphasis on combating cyber threats and protecting our critical assets. To do so, we need to shift the burden of responsibility from end users and small entities to government agencies and large enterprises where it belongs. ZKX makes this easy:
- ZKX is compatible with any network, from the edge to the cloud.
- ZKX adapts seamlessly to the policies already in place.
Begin your migration to Zero Trust
The Zero Trust Architecture (ZTA) is a novel method of network construction designed to eliminate the overall concept of “trust” from the network. This is in stark contrast to the current model, where security is simply relegated to the network’s perimeter.
- ZKX was built to form the foundation of a Zero Trust Architecture by focusing on the two most critical pillars of the zero-trust model: authentication of the user and authentication of the device.
- ZKX is unique in that it authenticates the user and device simultaneously without storing or transmitting any secret information.
- ZKX supports dynamic policy enforcement, a requirement for actualizing a true ZTA.
Render Cyberattacks Impossible
The SolarWinds breach. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) data breach. And countless others. Had ZKX been implemented in these scenarios, these infamous cyber-attacks would have been impossible. Here’s how:
- ZKX MFA is continual, so an adversary would have to successfully cheat a series of authentication challenges with every lateral step they attempt on the network.
- A single compromised credential is not enough information for an adversary to compromise the ZKX authentication transaction.
- ZKX authentication does not rely on the storage of secret authenticating information anywhere in the network. Sensitive authenticating data, such as usernames and passwords, are never stored and thus cannot be stolen.
