Spikes Security and WidePoint Partner to Provide Advanced Data Security to Government and Enterprise Organizations

WidePoint, a Trusted Federal Markets Solutions Provider, Integrates Its Certificate-on-Device™ Digital Certificates Offering With Isla Malware Isolation System; Integration of Malware Isolation and Identity & Access Management Strengthens Data Security, Helps Thwart Exploits and Exfiltrations

LOS GATOS, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 29, 2016) - Spikes Security™, the isolation security company, today announces its partnership with WidePoint (NYSE MKT: WYY), a leading provider of managed mobility services and identity management solutions, and the integration of Spikes Security's Isla Malware Isolation System with WidePoint Certificate-on-Device digital certificates solution. WidePoint's identity management (IDM) solutions have been awarded crucial Federal Government certifications, and are driving government-based PKI implementations. WidePoint is a highly trusted managed services provider for both government and commercial enterprises.

WidePoint chose Spikes Security's Isla for its advanced, market-proven performance in defending against browser-borne malware and for its flexible on-premise and cloud deployment strategy.

"Federal customers and heavily regulated industries are frequently targeted by bad actors, which is why we've chosen Spikes Security," said Steve L. Komar, WidePoint chairman and CEO. "Isla's browser-borne malware isolation delivers both the responsive experience that end users want and the leading-edge security to protect data and operations. The integration of advanced malware isolation with WidePoint Certificate-on-Device offers an important new level of protection to guard against today's most malicious threats."

WidePoint targets Federal markets and highly-regulated industries that require strong authentication with the flexible on-premise and private cloud IDM deployment strategies supported by Spikes Security. Such engagements typically prohibit outsourcing to third parties such as public cloud providers.

"WidePoint is our first North American partnership that spans such a strategic scope and depth of innovation," said Spikes Security President and CEO Michael Mansouri. "Their award-winning data security solutions and trusted managed services combine to make them invaluable to leading Federal markets customers with the highest standards and security requirements."

WidePoint also joined Spikes Security's new Transform Partner Program, which enables resellers to offer their customers a solution that far exceeds the web protection possible from traditional detection-based security technologies.

Spikes Security's Isla family of web malware isolation appliances is designed to provide complete protection against malware delivered through web browsers. Isla eliminates this significant attack vector by processing all web content on secure appliances deployed outside the network, where content remains in hardware-isolated VMs created for each user session. Isla features an extremely low-latency and natural user experience to endpoint devices inside the secure network. It continuously transforms all web content -- audio, video, text, and graphics -- into a benign, malware-free format. No original web content is ever delivered to endpoint devices.
