Re: Small Business Response to President’s Cybersecurity Executive Order

 

Dear Mr. President,

Thank you so much for your initiative with our nation’s Cybersecurity.

As a California Certified Small Business owner who offers a multi-factor authentication (MFA) product on the GSA Schedule, I have an important concern: Currently, there are no NAICS, SIC or SIN procurement codes for cybersecurity products on the GSA Schedule. This makes it difficult for government agencies and departments to find, let alone implement, the products you are mandating.

A year ago, I sent a similar letter to President Obama. NOTHING has changed. I trust that you are the man to fix this ridiculous problem. By simply adding cybersecurity procurement codes on the GSA Schedule as part of your Executive Order implementation, cybersecurity solutions will be implemented much faster. Read More→

Power LogOn – The Stepping-Stone to PKI

Power LogOn Helps Migrate Companies to PKI Adoption.

Power LogOn Complements PKIIn my many blogs, videos and whitepapers, I discuss how passwords are secure, but their management isn’t. Frequently, cybersecurity specialists believe that I’m pitting my Power LogOn solution against a PKI solution. That is not my intent. In reality, Power LogOn is a stepping-stone to PKI adoption.

This is not a contest of one technology being better than another, but rather matching the right technology to the environmental requirements. For example, what’s the difference between a Ferrari and a Jeep? Both are automobiles, they have engines, tires, seats, etc., and both will get you from point A to B on any paved road. However, you would never take your Ferrari off-roading in the Utah desert, nor would you drive a banged-up jeep to the red carpet at the Oscars. Implementation is about matching the correct vehicle to the environmental requirements. IT must also match the correct cyber authentication solution to the company’s requirements. Read More→
