CHANTILLY, Va., March 7, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM) has accredited the AppGuard endpoint breach prevention system from Blue Ridge Networks with a Certificate of Networthiness (CoN). The CoN accreditation verifies that AppGuard meets strict Army and Department of Defense (DoD) standards for security, compatibility and sustainability enabling Army IT Professionals to deploy it in their IT infrastructures.
AppGuard offers the marketplace the most effective protection to prevent breaches from undetectable cybersecurity attacks. The escalation of fileless malware, phishing, targeted, and other forms of cyber attacks that can defeat conventional protection methods exposes even the most diligent enterprises to the risk of costly breaches. John Higginbotham, Blue Ridge CEO, commented, "It is costing most organizations a fortune to try to detect the undetectable with little chance of success. AppGuard effectively eliminates persistent endpoint vulnerabilities to deliver reliable, field proven breach prevention at lower costs".
American Cyber, Inc., a Blue Ridge channel partner and AppGuard reseller, assisted in accomplishing this important certification to serve USARMY and other Federal government customers. "The recent continuing escalation of damaging cyber hacks has motivated nation states to intensify their attacks against our country's vital IT infrastructures," explains Gary Winkler, President of American Cyber, Inc. "We are committed to delivering effective and affordable cybersecurity solutions like AppGuard that strengthen the Army's ability to protect the integrity and availability of their information and operations."
