BlackRidge and Alliance Technology Group to Bring Next Generation Cyber Security Solutions to Commercial and Government Markets

Companies also Integrated BlackRidge Identity-Based Security Protection into SentryWire Network Packet Capture Platform

Hanover, MD – April 12, 2016 – BlackRidge Technology announces a new channel partner, Alliance Technology Group, a national solutions integrator delivering best in class security, cloud, and infrastructure solutions. The companies also announced that Alliance Technology Group has integrated BlackRidge identity-based network security with their SentryWire product offering.

“We are pleased to be working with Alliance Technology Group to address the security challenges in deploying enterprise workloads in public and hybrid clouds for both the Commercial and Government markets,” said Mike Miracle, SVP Marketing and Strategy of BlackRidge Technology “Further, integrating BlackRidge identity-based security with their SentryWire product helps ensure that this leading packet capture platform is protected from advanced cyber and insider threats.”

BlackRidge Technology provides identity-based network security that stops cyber-attacks and protects against insider threats at the earliest possible time, on the first packet before network sessions are established. This technology provides the equivalent of secure caller ID for the network that allows only identified and authorized users or devices access to enterprise and cloud systems.

Alliance Technology Group has integrated BlackRidge Technology’s identity-based network security protection into the SentryWire next generation packet capture platform to protect SentryWire installations from insider and third party threats. SentryWire is a next-generation platform for network packet capture that is based on a unique capture and storage architecture which breaks the performance, scalability and expense barriers of existing frameworks. 

“Alliance Technology Group is excited to be working with BlackRidge because their new and unique protection technology absolutely fits the “flexible, secure and reliable” solution mission of our company,” said Josh Williams, VP Security of Alliance Technology Group. “BlackRidge does so by leveraging the investment in existing access and authorization technologies and extending identity authentication to network sessions, providing military grade security that integrates seamlessly with our solutions and at an entry-level price point."

BlackRidge Technology and Alliance Technology Group have started marketing their joint solutions to the commercial and government markets, including at a series of regional Cloud Security summits. Alliance Technology Group’s SentryWire product with BlackRidge protection inside is now available from Alliance Technology Group. BlackRidge Technology is also a sponsor of the Alliance Technology Group National Sales Event being held April 12-14, 2016.
