Introspective Networks Joins Red Hat Business and Technology Partner Programs

Broomfield, CO, December 13, 2017 — Introspective Networks, a leader in proactive cybersecurity solutions, has joined the Red Hat, Inc. Business Partner Program and Technology Partner Program. This allows both companies to benefit from each other’s technologies and sales channels.

Introspective Networks has three products, SmokeLib, SmokeSSH and SmokeVPN, listed as certified products for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). Red Hat customers now have access to Introspective Networks’ Moving Target Defense and Streaming Encryption solutions. This allows systems to be built that utilize proactive cybersecurity through Introspective Networks’ patented technologies.

President and CEO Anthony Scott Thompson said, “This is a momentous step forward for Introspective Networks. Red Hat is the gold standard of Linux distributions and we are excited to be partnered with such an industry leader. Red Hat customers can now implement Introspective Networks’ proactive cybersecurity techniques utilizing Moving Target Defense as well as protect their data from future threats like quantum computing with Streaming Encryption. For anything that needs highly secure data transfer across shared network resources like the Internet, the solution is now here.”

“Joining both the Business Partner program and the Technology Partner programs enables Introspective Networks to provide complete solutions to new Red Hat customers and upgrade the cybersecurity solutions for existing Red Hat customers,” says James Haid, CRO.

Board member, USAF Brigadier General retired Ian Dickinson, stated, “These new certifications from Red Hat are yet another step in moving the groundbreaking research and development occurring at Introspective Networks to the mainstream capabilities worldwide customers need in communications security.”

VP of Government Sales, USAF Lt. Colonel retired Tom Cappelletti commented, “Red Hat certification complements the validation work Introspective Networks has successfully performed with the Air Force Research Lab at Rome NY to bring customers a robust technology solution to emerging threats to data security across any network.”

Current estimates of the cost of cybercrime already exceed $1 Trillion per year and the NSA has warned that quantum computing could render current encryption defenses obsolete in the next few years driving additional urgency for next-generation network and data security solutions like those developed by Introspective Networks.
