NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Skyport Systems, a leading secure hyperconverged infrastructure provider for the hybrid enterprise is proud to announce its designation as a Distinguished Vendor and inclusion in the 2018 TAG Cyber Security Annual – a free handbook and reference guide for enterprise cybersecurity professionals.
Skyport was recognized for its unique take on controlling application security policies using zero-trust secure computing infrastructure. Skyport’s cloud managed, on-premise solution provides IT organizations more control and flexibility, while saving time and resources with streamlined and automated operations.
“The team at Skyport Systems is really pushing the envelope on creating ways to secure a system by directly embedding into the hardware,” said Dr. Edward Amoroso, CEO of TAG Cyber and author of the report. “The more ways an enterprise has to secure their data and infrastructure, the more advantageous a position they’ll be in going forward facing more and more technological threats.”
Dr. Amoroso hand selected leaders, including Skyport, to offer insights and assist enterprise security teams as they modernize their cyber risk program via the following three steps: Exploding the flat perimeter enterprise into distributed workloads; Offloading the resultant applications and networks onto cloud-based, software-defined infrastructure; and then Reloading protections using the best available cyber security technologies.
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to share our innovative approach to helping cloud, hybrid applications and shadow IT securely move at the speed of business,” said Art Gilliland, CEO of Skyport Systems. “If followed, the extensive work he and his team are doing to educate and empower security professionals will surely lead to better protection of Active Directory and other critical IT systems from evolving threats.”
Each year, TAG Cyber publishes a three-volume report to the community for download at no cost. The report is available at https://www.tag-cyber.com/. Volume 2 of the report also includes an informative interview with Skyport Systems CTO, Michael Beesley on why both hardware and software must be securely integrated to support optimal protections for application hosting.
