Ezenia! Inc. awarded contract renewals by three US intelligence organizations
Ezenia! Inc., a leading market provider of real-time collaboration solutions for corporate and government networks and eBusiness, recently received multiple awards from three intelligence organizations, totaling more than half a million dollars in licensing royalties for the company's flagship product line, InfoWorkSpace.
InfoWorkSpace was conceived following the first Gulf War, when a lead army intelligence officer (G2) realized that there must be a better way to leverage and process the pool of intelligence information across various agencies and the Combatant Commands, regardless of time zones and/or physical locations, whether in the Pentagon or on the front lines, allowing military and civilian analysts to access and assess the knowledge base for real-time strategic support. Thus, began the creation of a new application suite to expand secure communication between these analysts on and off the battlefield, maximizing the intelligence and situational awareness for the entire team to keep front-line warfighters forewarned and forearmed.
The answer came from Ezenia! Inc. in the form of InfoWorkSpace, the most secure and accredited interactive information sharing and multimedia collaboration application suite available today. Since its launch, InfoWorkSpace has supported three major intelligence organizations with more than seven servers and more than 1,000 operating licenses, allowing over 10,000 agents and intelligence analysts to securely share real-time information, search and retrieve archived data, promote situational awareness, and engage in collaboration and/or multimedia conferencing at any time.
"Since security is the watch word in the Intelligence Community, it is at Ezenia as well," stated Keith Baron, Ezenia Vice President of Customer Assistance & Field Support. "InfoWorkSpace has passed the stringent PKI/PKE testing administered at and certified by the Joint Interoperability Test Command of the Defense Information System Agency in Ft. Huachuca, AZ, making it an incumbent best solution for the intelligence user community, which explains why we have been supporting these agencies for the past five to ten years. The licensing renewals reflect the intelligence community's continued trust in Ezenia and its commitment to understanding and exceeding their secure communication needs."
"The heritage and experience from our years in supporting the intelligence and military organizations has given Ezenia a unique understanding and appreciation for the protection and compartmentalization of highly sensitive and strictly confidential information. This is reflected in the architecture and implementation of the concept of multiple security levels within our application suite," noted Michael Fitzell, Ezenia Vice President of Engineering. "It is our intention to bring the benefit of such technology into the commercial arena to ensure the protection of all digital assets from intellectual property to personal reputations."
