Leading Security-Solutions Provider Selects Xceedium GateKeeper to Meet Their Clients Increasing Access Control & Audit Needs

KANSAS CITY, MO and JERSEY CITY, NJ--(Marketwire - August 25, 2010) -  Xceedium Inc., the leader in Zero Trust Access Control, and FishNet Security, the nation's leading provider of information security solutions, today announced a strategic partnership agreement that will allow FishNet to offer their clients the Xceedium GateKeeper. The Xceedium GateKeeper is a Zero Trust Access Control system that integrates easily into existing network and security infrastructure and allows organizations to meet security and compliance needs by controlling and auditing privileged access to critical IT infrastructure and regulated data.

Kansas City, Missouri-based FishNet Security specializes in providing corporations and government agencies with enterprise-class security solutions tailored to meet their unique security needs. Under the terms of the agreement between the companies, FishNet Security will resell the Xceedium GateKeeper across North America and provide turnkey installation, deployment, and integration services. The two companies have already partnered to implement the Xceedium GateKeeper solution within several major corporations to date. This initial set of customers is using the product to control and audit privileged access to IT infrastructure and regulated data by vendors, contractors and administrators. The solution has allowed them to address the business imperative of providing broad access to employees and partners while also meeting compliance and security risk management requirements for audit-quality logging and proof of controls.

"Our agreement with Xceedium lets us provide our customers with a unique all-in-one solution for access control and audit, which allows us to address the increasing security and compliance demands we are seeing in the marketplace," said Gordon Shevlin, FishNet Security Executive Vice President of Vendor Relations. "We have already partnered on several enterprise projects and deployments, including installations at a number of Fortune 500 companies. We are pleased to formalize what we know will continue to be a very strategic and mutually rewarding partnership."

Zimmet, Executive Vice President, Global Sales of Xceedium, Inc. "FishNet Security serves numerous customers in the regulated industries, including energy, financial services, healthcare, and retail where the need for a Zero Trust Access Control solution is critical to meeting their regulatory compliance mandates.
