The E-zones architecture abolishes the status quo concept that physical location is a reliable measure for protecting organizations against risk of information leaks. E-zones empower business managers to select the right balance of network protection and connectivity for their applications and other digital assets.

E-zones have been designed and built to feature:

  • Ease of use

  • A well-defined information protection posture, balancing protection and connection

  • A set of roles defining typical user activities and access rights

  • Roles organized and defined for any business, operational, financial or risk management criteria

  • A specific level of network performance and quality of service.
The business benefits are dramatic. E-zones slashed secure partner integration time from two months to days, enabled deployment of business-critical dashboards to more than 10,000 smart phones, and facilitated collaboration by more

than 60,000 staff members.

E-zones are vital to the company's culture of innovation, increasing flexibility for interpersonal and interorganizational communications with substantially reduced friction to the creative processes essential for new products.

biggest security worry
That the "bad actors" have now gone covert, and will be (or perhaps already are) using sophisticated exploits to commit crime and information theft...some of them with the advice and assistance of their national intelligence service.

military buff
Downtime includes reading up on history, hand painting military miniatures and playing tabletop war games.

Must have: Sun Tzu's The Art of War. "Technology changes (rapidly!), but the essential principles of conflict between opponents remain unchanged over the centuries."

security hero
Benjamin Franklin, for being instrumental in establishing the country's first police force.
