BlackRidge brings on Alliance Technology Group as strategic channel partner

14 Apr 2016

BlackRidge Technology has announced it has a new channel partner, Alliance Technology Group, the national solutions integrator delivering best in class security, cloud, and infrastructure solutions. Under the new partnership, Alliance Technology Group has integrated BlackRidge identity-based network security with its 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,” says Mike Miracle, BlackRidge Technology SVP marketing and strategy.

“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,” he says.

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 authorised 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,” says Josh Williams, Alliance Technology Group VP security.

“BlackRidge does so by leveraging the investment in existing access and authorisation 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," he says.

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.
