Ashburn, VA (Oct. 28, 2021) – ID Technologies, LLC, a mission-driven integrated solution provider to the federal government backed by The Acacia Group, today announced that its Archon endpoint security platform is an Industry Innovator Award Winner at the 2021 Government Innovation Awards from GCN, FCW and Washington Technology. The awards celebrate government IT’s disruptors, innovators, and emerging leaders in reimagining public sector IT. This is the second consecutive year ID Technologies and Archon have received this award.
Designed by ID Technologies, The Archon Solution Suite demonstrates how the company is solving highly complex problems for its federal and commercial clients through commercial innovation. Archon provides a uniquely secure way for mobile and remote users to access sensitive or classified data from anywhere.
Customers value Archon because it removes barriers to the many challenges they face when deploying technologies at scale that have to be compliant with the NSA’s Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC) standards. It provides a compliant solution for secure connections and data at rest, a seamless user experience through a laptop that runs all current applications, and a zero-trust, zero-configuration operating environment. Archon allows personnel to work efficiently from anywhere while protecting against operating system vulnerabilities, configuration errors, errant or malicious code, traffic sniffing, location tracing, and other threats.
Chris Oliver, CEO of ID Technologies, said, “We are honored that, for the second year in a row, Archon has been recognized by Washington Technology as an Industry Innovator. It’s fantastic recognition for a team dedicated to the drive to bring more innovative solutions to remote working challenges. Their dedication is delivering tangible results. The Archon product suite is now being deployed at scale by our national security customers, and we continue to innovate by adding powerful proven capabilities that improve Archon’s performance.”
Earlier this year, the team at Attila Security joined ID Technologies’ Archon division. With Attila Security’s data protection capabilities, Archon is evolving to become a uniquely comprehensive and certifiable turnkey remote working solution that addresses a broader range of complex and sensitive federal and commercial use cases.
Dylan Conner, CTO of ID Technologies, said, “At Archon, we bring the most relevant innovations to market as quickly as possible to help solve our customer’s cyber issues. It’s so amazing to receive this recognition for two years in a row! We have a great team here and the customer mission drives the innovation.”
Gavin Long, Co-founder and Partner with The Acacia Group, ID Technologies’ lead sponsor, said: “Archon is a flagship example of the type of innovation that lies at the heart of Acacia’s investment approach across our portfolio. The Archon team has created a transformational capability that is changing the way people work and collaborate in advancing the national security mission. We’re delighted to again have this opportunity to celebrate what they have achieved.”
From the disconnected battlefield to the end-user connecting to sensitive networks from home, the Archon product suite is applying military grade security at commodity scale. In this critical time, the Archon Solution Suite provides not only a work from home solution, but also greater productivity for those tactical mission users, and greater security for mission sensitive systems.
