Jericho Systems Joins F5’s Technology Alliance Partner Program

Jericho Systems partners with F5 to benefit customers with a combined solution that enhances scalability, availability, and security
Dallas, TX –Jericho Systems, the leading provider of Attribute Based Access Control (ABAC) technology, announced today that it has joined F5 Networks’ Technology Alliance Partner program. Through the partnership, customers benefit from a combined solution that maximizes the value of deploying the companies’ products together.

“Jericho Systems is focused on providing next generation privacy and security solutions for Defense, Intelligence Community, Financial, and Healthcare industries,” said Vijay Subramanium, Director of Integration and Delivery for Jericho Systems. “Our customers value our commitment to address complex information sharing problems. Leveraging our EnterSpace Technology® with F5® BIG-IP® Local Traffic Manager™ (LTM®), we deliver an optimized user experience, at a lower cost, with additional flexibility, and increased performance for our customers.”

Legacy access control systems such as Role Based Access Control (RBAC) and Access Control Lists (ACLs) have proven insufficient for securely handling information sharing, especially in federated environments and across organizational network domain boundaries and enclaves. These legacy security models do not scale to support today’s requirements in our interconnected world. While F5 customers benefit from leveraging these legacy systems with BIG-IP LTM to deepen secure access capabilities, these customers still do not have the advanced functionality to parse documents, encrypt or redact sensitive information, and re-label the documents to demonstrate compliance with certain statutory, regulatory, and policy requirements for protecting privacy and securing sensitive information. By adding Jericho Systems’ EnterSpace®, these customers can now extend BIG-IP LTM’s powerful SSL offload and iRules® capabilities to operate as an Authentication Gateway Service (AGS) and a Policy Enforcement Point (PEP) with EnterSpace next generation ABAC with Data Labeling and Data Segmentation (DLDS™).

This adds to BIG-IP LTM the ability to tag and label data segments within documents as well as protecting sensitive information within these segments, in real-time, for each transaction request. Context-aware policies allow customers to redact (remove), mask (encrypt), and anonymize (substitute) data before it is delivered by BIG-IP LTM to the requesting party. Data Segmentation is a crucial component for enabling defense in depth for data at rest and in motion. This provides the customer an Authentication and Authorization Service (AAS) that incorporates privacy protecting fine-grained content filtering/security trimming access control for enterprise cloud and mobile services.

The key differentiator for organizations using the joint solution is the cost-effective ability to efficiently manage the flow and security of information within the enterprise and with external partners. Combining EnterSpace and BIG-IP LTM enables the customer to leverage existing IT infrastructures while preserving organizational autonomy to enhance secure information sharing within the organization and with its partners. The combined F5 and Jericho solution builds upon existing authentication and authorization mechanisms and enables organizations to demonstrate compliance for privacy and security requirements. As a result, customers benefit by leveraging the combined strength of F5’s and Jericho Systems’ proven, defense-grade technology for high-availability, high-performance, fine-grained access control and data-level security.
“Jericho Systems’ participation in our Technology Alliance Program provides a substantial framework for collaboration, yielding compelling security and access benefits,” said Ron Carovano, Manager, Business Development at F5 Networks. “Through a dynamic partner ecosystem, solution capabilities can be extended with industry leaders in adjacent markets, driving interoperability and optimized performance for joint customers.”
