NEC to Integrate and Deliver Blackridge’s Identity-Based Cybersecurity for a Broad Range of Applications Including Smart Cities; The Companies Will Exhibit Together at Govware 2019 in Singapore
BlackRidge Technology International Inc., a leading provider of next-generation cyber defense solutions, and NEC Asia Pacific (NEC) have signed a reseller agreement to deliver BlackRidge’s cybersecurity solutions for private and public sector applications. At GovWare 2019, held October 1-3 at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre, the companies will be demonstrating cyber protection for smart city applications using the BlackRidge TAC Identity Device in NEC’s booth.
“BlackRidge Technology’s approach to ‘zero-trust’ through enforcement of identity across network boundaries is ideally suited for various Smart City applications, including the protection of critical infrastructure such as CCTV networks equipped with advanced video analytics,” said Vivian Tay, Senior Vice President, NEC Asia Pacific.
GovWare 2019, held together with Singapore International Cyber Week, brings together global thought leaders, policymakers and innovators to discuss key cybersecurity trends, challenges and solutions. During the show, BlackRidge and NEC will demonstrate how BlackRidge’s TAC Identity Device ensures secure and trusted connections between IP video cameras and NEC’s NeoFace facial recognition application.
On day two of GovWare, John Walsh, chief strategy and technology officer at BlackRidge, will present an overview of zero trust security in the Advanced Identity Management and the Zero Trust Environment in Perimeter Security and Access Management track. The session, “With Great Connectivity Comes Great Responsibility,” will take place from 2:20-3:00 p.m. SST on October 2 in Auditorium, Hall 406, Level 4. Walsh will also speak on a panel at the CXO Plenary, an invitation-only event of up to 180 top C-suite decision makers from public and private sectors to exchange views on key strategic developments and trends in cybersecurity.
“This partnership with NEC demonstrates our commitment to global market expansion and the move into a broader range of security applications including Smart Cities,” said Rolf Lumpe, vice president of business development at BlackRidge Technology. “BlackRidge is committed to delivering on the zero trust model for both public and private applications.”
