HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IronClad Encryption Corporation (the “Company” or “IronClad”) (OTCQB: IRNC), a next-generation cyber defense company that secures digital assets and communications across a wide range of industries and technologies, today announced that Layer 3 Communications, an engineering firm providing complex network services and products, has entered into a partnership agreement to incorporate IronClad Encryption's ICEMicro context-free and natively secure Docker Containers into solutions for its customers. In addition, IronClad will include Layer 3 Communications’ products and services into IronClad’s solutions for their own customers.
The addition of IronClad’s technology enhances the value of Layer 3’s secure managed networks. Layer 3 Communications provides a broad range of consulting and management services for companies building and utilizing data, voice and video networks. The company's services include network audits, network analyses, network design, network security, project management, staging and implementation, installation and support planning. Layer 3 Communications also integrates local and wide area networks, so its customers can take advantage of internet access, virtual private networks, remote access, network security and firewalls.
"Network security is a top priority for Layer 3 and our customers," said Rodney Turner, President and CEO of Layer 3 Communications. "IronClad’s ICEMicro Docker Container is a truly unique product that enables us to create a new suite of ultra-secure and highly differentiated products for our customers. ICEMicro is robust, massively scalable, and the foundation for our next-generation of ultra-secure services and products."
"We're delighted to be working with Layer 3 on its new network security offering," said JD McGraw, President and CEO of IronClad Encryption. "Using our ICEMicro technology, Layer 3 will be able to improve and expand the use of their network security services and products with no performance penalty."
IronClad Encryption's ICEMicro Docker Container secures communications between and among software, devices, network equipment and networks. It can also secure data communications among disparate data centers, clouds, and hybrid environments.
ICEMicro is a ready-to-use container technology that natively secures data communications among any number of Docker containers. Docker containers have become increasingly popular among software developers who want their applications or platforms to run, without modification, in any Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) or Platform as a Service (PaaS) environment including Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure. Managed service providers (MSPs) can use the technology to fortify existing services or as the basis for new services.
Layer 3's new ICEMicro-enabled security service is expected to be available in the second quarter of 2018.

About IronClad Encryption Corporation:
IronClad Encryption Corporation is a next-generation cyber defense company that secures digital assets and communications across a wide range of industries and technologies. IronClad Encryption-powered solutions utilize our patented Dynamic Encryption and Perpetual Authentication technologies to make all known key-based encryption technologies virtually impossible to compromise. Dynamic Encryption Technology eliminates vulnerabilities caused by exposure of any single encryption key by continuously changing encryption keys and keeping the keys synchronized in a fault-tolerant manner. Perpetual Authentication Technology uses multiple virtual channels for encryption so that in the event one channel is compromised, the other channels maintain encryption integrity. Together, these technologies not only eliminate the single point of failure problem created by having keys exposed through brute force, side channel, or other types of attack, but do so with very low latency and system performance overhead. Developers, MSPs, MSSPs, and IT organizations can now easily and effectively integrate ultra-secure authentication and encryption measures across essentially all mediums. This includes the latest processors and operating systems, legacy hardware and software, within or between networks, and on compartmentalized data or entire databases. At rest or in-motion, IronClad Encryption ensures data remains safe, secure and uncompromised.
