Preventing the Next Big Data Breach by Closing the Security Blind Spot Exploited by Manning and Snowden
The Cicada represents the type of technology which addresses real capability gaps not only found in federal civil agencies, but also across the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community.
Montreal, Québec (PRWEB) August 09, 2013
Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden made headlines recently when the world became aware that a significant amount of classified material had been stolen, seemingly without effort or detection. According to Ryk Edelstein, the CEO of Cicada Security Technology Inc., this was entirely preventable with an affordable technology called Cicada. The Cicada is the first commercially available product to protect a computer and data against physical threat, including attempted theft or tamper. The Cicada can even be integrated as an enabling technology with authentication, encryption or asset recovery technologies from other vendors to create a new class of physical threat aware security products.
With the growing trend towards the reduction of office space, both the public and private sectors are faced with millions of telecommuters whose computers no longer have the security afforded by an office environment. According to Dr. Thomas A. Cellucci, former Chief Commercialization Officer of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, “The Cicada represents the type of technology which addresses real capability gaps not only found in federal civil agencies, but also across the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community.”
Cicada Security Technology Inc. is a Montreal, Québec based developer of innovative security solutions engineered to protect computers, tablets and intelligent mobile devices and their data against vulnerabilities posed by theft or tamper.
