BlackRidge to Present Cybersecurity Integration to Extend Security Policies to Cloud Environments at Cisco Live 2018

BlackRidge Transport Access Control Integrates with Cisco Identity Services Engine Leveraging Cisco pxGrid

RENO, NV – June 04, 2018 – 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 the integration of cybersecurity solutions in the Security Village at Cisco Live, Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, in Orlando, FL, June 10-14, 2018. As a member of 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 to cloud environments and beyond.

Doug Johnson, BlackRidge Senior Director of Solution Engineering, will present a session in the Security Village Theater discussing how BlackRidge Transport Access Control (TAC) utilizes Cisco pxGrid to extend Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) security policies to cloud environments and enforce identity-based access control. He will also explain how BlackRidge TAC uses its patented First Packet Authentication™ to secure networks on the first packet, effectively cloaking server and cloud workloads from unidentified or unauthorized users.

“The collaboration with Cisco highlights the benefits of using BlackRidge Transport Access Control to extend security controls from Cisco Identity Services Engine to cloud environments,” said Bob Graham, BlackRidge Chairman and CEO. “The veracity of today’s advanced threats and cyber-attacks requires the integration and automation of cyber defenses to provide consistent policy management and enforcement across hybrid cloud and IT environments.”

BlackRidge will demonstrate cybersecurity solutions integration in the Cisco Live Security Village throughout the convention. Johnson will present his seminar on Extending Cisco Identity Services Engine Policies to the Cloud and Beyond in the Security Village Theater on Wednesday, June 13, at 11:10 a.m. ET. Cisco Live, Cisco’s annual IT and communications conference, will be held in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, June 10-14, 2018.
