Agilicus has successfully qualified to sell its innovative Zero Trust solution, Agilicus AnyX, directly to the Government of Canada. This will help us bolster Canada’s cybersecurity ecosystem and help agencies defend against cyber attacks.
- Organizations can no longer depend on conventional perimeter-based defense to protect their critical systems.
- Through the Pathway to Commercialization program, Agilicus is now eligible for direct purchases from any government department up to $8 million per contract and without further competition for three years.
- The future is bright for cybersecurity innovation in Canada
IT networks have grown in size and complexity to meet organizations’ needs with newly evolved technologies, such as hybrid cloud infrastructures.
Unfortunately, cyber threats have kept pace with these changes and often take advantage of the security gaps following these hasty transformations. As users, information, and services are dispersed across various locations, there are no longer defined perimeters around organizations’ resources.
Organizations can no longer depend on conventional perimeter-based defense to protect their critical systems.
Zero Trust: The Standard for Strong Cybersecurity
Clearly, a Zero Trust approach is more important now than ever before. This was solidified with the release of ITSM.10.008 in March 2023, a publication that provides a description of Zero Trust Network Architecture security concepts and how organizations can benefit from implementing this framework to safeguard their assets.
That’s why I’m excited to share that Agilicus has successfully qualified to sell its innovative Zero Trust solution directly to the Government of Canada.
Through the Pathway to Commercialization program, Agilicus is now eligible for direct purchases from any government department up to $8 million per contract and without further competition for three years.
Obviously, as one of only a handful of teams that started this process, I am immensely proud of our team and the federal government’s recognition of our innovative approach to Zero Trust Network Access.
We’re on a mission to protect Canada’s critical infrastructure from cyber threats. We empower teams with precise controls and easy-to-implement security features to manage any resource, user, or device, simply and effectively. And your internal and external employees will get seamless access to the resources they need using a unified single sign-on experience.
Because in the end, organizations shouldn’t be forced to choose between enabling their people, securing critical systems, or reducing the cost of cyber security. With Agilicus, adopting modern, cloud-native security quickly and effectively isn’t just a reality – it’s the standard.
So it’s really exciting to see the Government of Canada go all-in on supporting innovation for Canada’s cybersecurity industry.
Agilicus is all-in too. And we can’t wait to get started.
