BlackRidge Technology to Protect Santa’s Nice List™ and Delivery Systems
NORTH POLE – Dec. 21, 2018 -- BlackRidge Technology International Inc. (OTCQB: BRTI), a leading provider of next-generation cyber defense solutions, has partnered with Santa Claus, the world’s leading multinational Christmas gift delivery system.
Santa’s North Pole-based data center will be protected by BlackRidge’s patented Transport Access Control (TAC) technology, which authenticates user and device identity and enforces security policy at the start of a network session. Enforcing network microsegmentation using identity is a critical component of security which grow along with the complexity of networks.
Santa implemented BlackRidge Technology’s leading next-generation cyber defense solutions to protect and secure critical data that is vital to the operations of his North Pole headquarters and its complex 24/7 global supply chain, which experiences a tremendous spike in demand on Christmas Eve. The TAC solution from BlackRidge gives Santa peace of mind, knowing that he has end-to-end security that proactively isolates the cloud services he uses, protects his servers and segments his networks.
“It’s no secret that my growing Naughty and Nice Lists are an attractive target,” said Santa. “The integrity of this data is critical to ensuring that my annual rooftop gift-giving dash is both seamless and accurate. We simply can’t have Suzy’s doll getting mixed up with Bobby’s coal.”
“As the volume and sophistication of data breaches continues to increase, and as younger and younger children demonstrate remarkable hacking skills, we felt the time had come to make absolutely certain that no naughty children could gain unauthorized access into these lists and change their results,” added Santa.
“Our partnership with Santa is a perfect fit for identity-based access controls that block unauthorized network connections,” said Bob Graham, CEO of BlackRidge Technology. “As Santa takes to the night sky on Christmas Eve, BlackRidge Technology will be right there with him, keeping his Nice List safe from hackers and other holiday Scrooges.”
With the company’s background in military-grade and patented network security technology, BlackRidge Technology was also a natural choice for securing Santa’s sleigh. TAC is well-suited to protect remote endpoints, working end-to-end across network and cloud boundaries to block scanning, discovery and access from all unidentified and unauthorized devices and systems, effectively cloaking the sleigh from anyone who might want to keep his reindeer grounded rather than face coal in their stocking.
BlackRidge Technology will do its part to help make sure Santa is protected. All you have to do is leave out those cookies for Santa and carrots for the reindeer. And be good, for goodness’ sake.
