DENVER – October 21, 2009 – Secure64 Software Corporation announced today that the U.S. Department of the Interior has purchased the company’s Secure64 DNS Signer product to meet the December 2009 OMB mandate requiring all federal agencies to add DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) to the DNS. The Domain Name System (DNS) is responsible for translating host names to IP addresses (and vice versa) and is critical for the normal operation of Internet-connected systems. The Department of Interior is the latest in a growing list of government agencies to select the Secure64 DNS Signer.
According to William Corrington, CTO for the Department of Interior, “DOI required a solution able to sign for the entire department, including all component bureaus and offices, so scalability was a factor in our decision. Even more importantly, we needed an automated product with the highest level of security to prevent signature forging. We selected Secure64 DNS Signer because it met all of our requirements and successfully completed a pilot deployment in three days.”
“The Department of the Interior has a lead role in preparedness for natural disasters, such as floods, wildfires, and earthquakes, in addition to managing the natural resources of the United States. The resiliency of their Internet communications is critical to meet these missions and the department has taken a leadership role in deploying an efficient and reliable IT architecture,” said Steve Goodbarn, CEO and Director of Secure64. “We are proud to be part of these efforts and to enable reliable, timely, and cost-effective deployment of DNSSEC.”
As part of its cyber security strategy, the United States Office of Management and Budget issued an OMB mandate that all federal agencies must implement DNSSEC by December 2009. For more information about DNSSEC, Secure64 DNS Signer and Secure64 DNS Authority, visit www.secure64.com.
