WidePoint’s Subsidiary ORC Receives $3 Million Order for its SmartCard/Common Access Card Management Console
U.S. Navy to deploy solution
PR Newswire — August 24, 2010
WASHINGTON, Aug. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — WidePoint Corporation (NYSE Amex: WYY), a specialist in wireless mobility management and cybersecurity solutions, today announced that WidePoint’s Operational Research Consultants, Inc. (ORC) subsidiary received a $3 million order from its reselling partner, Conquest Security of Gaithersburg, MD in support of a deployed cybersecurity solution for a Department of the Navy mobile environment.
Mobile cybersecurity solutions are used in circumstances where the endpoints (i.e. servers, desktops, laptops, mobile devices) are not fixed to a single IP address and are able to roam across various networks. These solutions are widely used in situations where they provide secure remote access to critical system applications for mobile workforces. The ORC SmartCard/Common Access Card (CAC) Management Console allows the application owner to manage the authentication and access with a high level of assurance as to the identity of the endpoints, in addition to leveraging the strong identity of the individual attempting secure access to the application, without having to know the physical location from which the request is being made.
WidePoint CTO, Daniel E. Turissini commented, “Communities of interest concerned with privacy and security can no longer be defined by location. WidePoint’s cybersecurity solutions address secure access to multi-level resources and message traffic based on endpoint and individual identity, roles, and privileges. ORC’s SmartCard/CAC Management Console met the rigors of Navy operational testing and configuration control approval. We are pleased it has been chosen to be integrated as a cost effective, value added security solution, leveraging and complementing existing defense network security solutions.”
“We have had a long standing relationship with ORC,” commented Conquest Security’s Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, Mark Williamson. “Their solution set complements our holistic approach to information security emphasizing good systems management, automated security controls, continuous testing, and education. It is our understanding that this order represents approximately 20% of the Navy’s need and is a fraction of the overall market opportunity and we are pleased to be a partner and value added reseller of ORC’s cybersecurity solution set.”
