BlackRidge Transport Access Control Implemented by Network Runners to Further Protect Their Business from Cyberattacks

Network Runners Achieves Zero Trust Network Access for Remote Users with BlackRidge TAC Endpoints

RENO, Nev. – Aug. 19, 2019BlackRidge Technology International, Inc. (OTCQB: BRTI), a leading provider of next-generation cyber defense solutions, is providing its Transport Access Control software to Network Runners, Inc., a leading technology consulting firm to commercial firms and the federal government.

Already a BlackRidge solutions provider, Network Runners has implemented the same BlackRidge TAC gateway and endpoint software that it provides to its clients, adding an additional layer of security for their remote user access. Zero trust network access cloaks all external facing resources – Web and VPN – ensuring they are visible only to identified and authorized users.

“Network Runners’ first priority is supporting its clients’ missions and providing them an excellent cyber security posture is critical. Integration of BlackRidge TAC with its zero trust architecture principles into the security stack will significantly enhance the security of our clients,” said Manoj Bhatia, president and co-founder of Network Runners, Inc. “We know that legacy perimeter security approaches aren’t sufficient, so it’s natural to not only provide BlackRidge’s solutions to our customers, but to apply them to our own security practices as well.” 

As part of the partnership, BlackRidge Technology and Network Runners will co-exhibit at the Department of Defense Intelligence Information System (DoDIIS) Worldwide Conference in Tampa, Florida, Aug. 19-21. Representatives from both organizations will be on hand at Booth #1142 to demonstrate the full capabilities of BlackRidge’s Transport Access Control.
