Intrusion, Inc.

PLANO, TX / ACCESSWIRE / March 9, 2023 / Intrusion, Inc. (NASDAQ:INTZ) announced its partnership with NetFoundry, creator of the world's most used open source zero trust networking platform, to build a leading Zero Trust Network Access Solution. Intrusion Shield Endpoint helps businesses protect vital data - using zero trust architecture.

"The newly released Federal Cybersecurity Strategy reinforces the Zero Trust Approach and makes it clear that the technology industry must begin to take more responsibility for protecting the public from cybercriminals, and other threat actors," said Tony Scott, CEO of Intrusion. "The continued vitality of the United States economy and its valuable businesses, institutions, and public services will increasingly depend on a much more secure digital infrastructure. The tech industry must take a lead and help shift the burden of poor cybersecurity from the individual to the builders and operators of our technology infrastructure who have the right skills, long-term economic incentives, and the scale to do so. Intrusion is proud to partner with NetFoundry to help accelerate this transformation."

"Intrusion was far ahead of the new Federal Cybersecurity Strategy," said Michael Kochanik, co-founder and CRO of NetFoundry. "We have been working together for some time to integrate NetFoundry's zero trust networking into Intrusion Shield Endpoint, giving immediate benefit to customers."

NetFoundry, the creator of OpenZiti, and provider of CloudZiti. OpenZiti is the world's most used open source zero trust networking platform, and CloudZiti provides Ziti as NaaS, with hosted global network fabrics. Ziti enables developers to embed zero trust networking inside solutions, such as individual apps, APIs, browsers, proxies, and IoT, so that zero trust overlays are integrated into the app, everywhere the app goes, rather than being dependent on underlying networks or clouds.

Intrusion Shield Endpoint uses a peer-to-peer (P2P) encrypted network overlay that allows users to securely access defined network endpoints via an approved physical device, credentials, and security certificate. The solution adds further protection by blocking all unwanted inbound and outbound communications on each endpoint using the Intrusion Global Threat Engine.

About NetFoundry

NetFoundry transforms secure networking into a developer platform, in the same manner in which cloud transformed compute into a platform. Organizations use the NaaS (CloudZiti) and open source (OpenZiti) options for secure, reliable connectivity for any use case, including APIs, IoT and remote management. With Ziti, network security is no longer dependent on underlying networks, infrastructure and configuration.
