BlackRidge to Present on Assuring Zero Trust Networks Spanning Physical, Virtual and Cloud Environments at Cisco Live 2019

BlackRidge Transport Access Control integrates with Cisco Identity Services Engine and Cisco DUO to extend identity-based security across networks

RENO, NV – June 05, 2019 – BlackRidge Technology International, Inc. (OTCQB: BRTI), a leading provider of next-generation cyber defense solutions, announced today that the company will present a session on how to properly assure a zero trust network that spans physical, virtual, and cloud computing resources in the Security Village at Cisco Live, Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, in San Diego, CA, June 9-13, 2019. As a member of the Cisco Solutions Partner Program, BlackRidge has collaborated with Cisco to leverage the Cisco pxGrid (Platform Exchange Grid) framework to extend the reach of Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) to cloud environments and beyond.

Doug Johnson, Vice President, Strategic Alliances at BlackRidge Technology, will present a session in the Security Village Theater discussing how leveraging Cisco ISE, and DUO Security (a Cisco Company) using BlackRidge Transport Access Control (TAC) can assure a zero trust network that spans physical, virtual, and cloud computing resources. Johnson will outline how BlackRidge TAC extends these complementary Cisco technologies to provide identity-based security across networks that you do not have total control over but must utilize to deliver your immediate and long-term business needs.

“The zero trust model is a philosophy that evolved from years of enterprises getting burned by the assumption that anyone operating from within the security perimeter should be inherently trusted, and as computing resources increasingly span physical, virtual and cloud environments, assuring identity has become increasingly critical,” said Bob Graham, BlackRidge Chairman and CEO. “In today’s climate of advanced threats and increasingly sophisticated threat actors, our collaboration with Cisco recognizes this need for identity-based solutions within environments that are hard to control but vital to business success.”

BlackRidge will demonstrate cybersecurity solutions integration in the Cisco Live Security Village throughout the convention. Johnson will present his seminar, “From Zero to Hero With Trust on Your Side,” in the Security Village Theater on Tuesday, June 11 at 1:15 p.m. PT. Cisco Live, Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, will be held across three venues – the San Diego Convention Center, Marriott Marquis San Diego, and Hilton Bayfront San Diego, June 9-13, 2019.
