WidePoint Launches Secure Cloud Service For Privileged User Access

MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- WidePoint Corporation (NYSE Mkt: WYY), a leading provider of secure, cloud-based, enterprise-wide solutions and services in mobile communications management and identity management solutions, announces that it has combined the best privilege access management product and a high-performance network-attached hardware security module (HSM) to provide a fully compliant solution that controls access, monitors, and records the activities of privileged users across hybrid cloud environments.

"Xceedium is excited about our collaboration with WidePoint," said Glenn C. Hazard, Xceedium CEO & Chairman. "An HSPD-12 ready solution that allows an existing customer base to leverage their HSM investment is key to the broad adoption of strong privileged user management necessary for the protection of our nation's critical infrastructure."

This solution allows for easily defined and enforced security policies for sensitive systems across traditional data centers, virtualized infrastructure, and public and private clouds with FIPS-compliant key management. This protection has become particularly important in the wake of the NSA/Edward Snowden breach, the latest and most public demonstration of the severe risk privileged users pose and the massive damage they can cause without the appropriate controls in place. As a managed service or turn-key operation, WidePoint's PIVotal IDâ„¢ Privileged Management Portal (PMP) vaults and manages credentials, federates identities, and protects systems regardless of where they're located, helping to reduce risk, ensure compliance, and lower administrative overhead based on an organization's desired level of assurance.

"We are happy to add our newest partner, Xceedium, to the WidePoint solution environment," said Steven L. Komar, WidePoint CEO & Chairman. "The PIVotal ID PMP marks another milestone consistent with our strategic investment in technology development and our goal of providing best-in-class Managed Mobility Services and Solutions."
