WidePoint Enterprise Solutions
The challenges brought on by the growth and evolution of mobile devices and how we use them, along with the security threats that go with them, have prompted many organizations to consider managed services for mobility, telecom, and cybersecurity. For decades, WidePoint has been helping enterprises do just that, reducing costs, improving efficiency, optimizing services, and protecting users, networks, and data.
“We believe that businesses don’t have to be burdened with higher costs and increasing security risks that can distract from achieving business goals, or worse, be costly and cause irreparable damage. WidePoint has the experience, knowledge, tools, and solutions to ensure our customers have the freedom to focus on success,” says Key Executive Jeffrey O. Nyweide
Mobile Security: Whether in-house or outsourced, you go through great pain to secure your business and intellectual property within elaborate and high-cost data centers. Why expose vulnerability by deploying mobile programs without equivalent levels of security?
While mobile devices are revolutionizing the way business is being conducted throughout the world, they also have the potential to put your enterprise at risk—a risk that can be mitigated with the right security policies and monitoring/enforcement measures.Whether you are looking to enhance the security of your mobile devices, or build an entire mobile infrastructure, WidePoint’s solutions will protect your corporate assets and ensure secure mobile access at minimal incremental cost. Its solutions are scalable and flexible to enable increased protection consistent with the growth of your mobile enterprise, leveraging a mature infrastructure employed by Federal agencies and Fortune 500 organizations.
PIVotal ID™: WidePoint’s ORC is a certified provider of Federal PIV credentials, PIV-I credentials, GSA ACES credentials, DoD ECA credentials and the Transportation Worker Identity Credential (TWIC). We received the Non-Federal Issuer designation in March 2012. This certification expanded our credential portfolio to cover the full spectrum of user communities across the Civilian Federal and DoD domains.
Identity Management: A trusted digital identity is critical in today’s information age. In government as in business, knowing whom you’re dealing with is essential when using any form of electronic communications. Businesses need identity assurance for commercial enterprises such as e-Commerce, online banking and trading, Internet-based enterprise solutions for process automation, or digital form signing.
WidePoint has operational experience in all facets of identity proofing, credential issuing, and public key technology. It brings a unique approach because WidePoint always starts from an organizational perspective, understanding key drivers, compliance requirements, internal needs, and the complete IT ecosystem. Because of this, its solutions deliver exactly what you need, and are designed to seamlessly work within existing systems and grow and adapt as technology and business needs evolve.
