The Xceedium GateKeeper is the only solution on the market today that allows enterprises to enforce access control on vendors, contractors and IT administrators whether inside or outside of the network; to contain users so that they have access to only the resources they need; and to create an audit trail for proof of compliance with the security mandates of HIPAA, PCI and FISMA, among others.
