Leader in Zero Trust Access Control Recognized as "Best Network Security" Product for Federal Government Agencies

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - November 11, 2010) - Xceedium Inc., the leader in Zero Trust Access Control solutions, today announced that Government Security News (GSN) has named it the "Best Network Security" product in its 2010 Homeland Security Awards.

The GSN awards honor federal, state and local government officials, agencies and departments that are responsible for developing and implementing successful security programs. The awards also honor leading vendors of IT and physical security products that provide the best products and solutions used in homeland security and defense.

"Award applicants undergo a careful evaluation of product efficiency and reliability," said Jacob Goodwin, editor in chief of Government Security News. "Xceedium's GateKeeper was chosen as the clear winner of the 'Best Network Security' category based on its potential to substantially impact the way federal agencies secure and audit privileged access to critical systems."

The Xceedium GateKeeper is the only solution on the market today that allows government agencies and enterprises to enforce access control on vendors, contractors and privileged IT users inside and outside of the network. The product contains users so that they only have access to the IT resources that they require; and creates an actionable audit trail for proof of compliance with security mandates like FISMA, NERC, FIPS, PCI and HIPAA, among others. Highly regulated and security conscious organizations have identified the Xceedium GateKeeper as a must-have product to meet their evolving privileged access control needs.

"This award further validates Xceedium's ongoing success in the federal market," said Glenn C. Hazard, Xceedium's chief executive officer and chairman. "We're honored to be included in a roundup of some of the best technologies securing government agencies, chosen by a publication that provides a rich source of information from innovative thought leaders in the industry."
