Chariton Valley Commits To Protecting All Customers From Growing Cybersecurity Threats With Calix ProtectIQ Home Network Security

Calix | July 15, 2022

Calix, Inc. (NYSE: CALX) announced today that Chariton Valley Telephone Corporation (Chariton Valley) expects to double its customer connections after providing ProtectIQ® home network security to all customers at no cost. Chariton Valley leverages the full power of Calix Revenue EDGE to transform its value proposition and improve the customer experience. In May, the 70-year-old broadband service provider (BSP) launched ProtectIQ, part of Calix Revenue EDGE Suites, as it continues to roll out GigaSpire® BLAST systems across its Midwestern communities. In a climate of increased cybersecurity concerns, Chariton Valley has equipped all GigaSpire BLAST customers with effortless access to robust home network security. In doing so, the BSP increases customer loyalty across rural regions and nearby cities in north-central and northeast Missouri. Many Chariton Valley customers have sophisticated internet habits—half identify as gamers and almost 40 percent work from home. By evolving its value proposition, the innovative BSP has also fortified itself against billion-dollar market cap competition in Palmyra and Hannibal. In its first two months of offering ProtectIQ to all customers, Chariton Valley blocked more than 48,000 web threats, intrusions, malware, and viruses from entering home networks—proving the immediate value of its investments. The comprehensive Revenue EDGE platform enables BSPs of all sizes to easily and quickly launch differentiating turnkey, managed offerings. Chariton Valley continues to evolve its value proposition and strengthen its growing customer connections by: Transforming its business to help communities thrive for decades. Chariton Valley is on track to complete a historic five-year, $42 million fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) buildout in its member service territory, and another $40 million in expansion opportunities next year by leveraging the secure broadband access network platform, Calix Intelligent Access EDGE™. In May, it began rolling out turnkey, managed offerings in EDGE Suites, starting with ProtectIQ, recently recognized by the cybersecurity industry as “Best in Anti-Phishing, Network Security & Management,” at no cost to its customers. As a result, Chariton Valley blocked thousands of web threats in only two months—further proving the value of its investment in the region. Creating internet experiences that grow with customers’ needs. After the successful rollout of ProtectIQ, Chariton Valley is now taking a targeted approach to introduce its second EDGE Suite, the advanced parental controls in ExperienceIQ®. Calix-partnered BSPs have seen a 178 percent increase in people using ExperienceIQ since the beginning of the year. Both ProtectIQ and ExperienceIQ are accessed through the BSP’s branded subscriber-facing mobile app, built on CommandIQ®, giving customers more control over their home networks. Leveraging data and insights to offer services that meet each customer’s unique needs. Using the insights and analytics in Calix Marketing Cloud (Marketing Cloud), even a small BSP like Chariton Valley can successfully leverage data for segmenting and targeting. For example, Chariton Valley uses Marketing Cloud to uncover which of its customers are most likely to need the advanced parental controls of ExperienceIQ. Now their marketing team can quickly identify the right people for the new service. This enables Chariton Valley to get maximum ROI from every dollar invested in marketing. “As a member-owned organization, the customer experience informs everything we do,” said Kirby J. Underberg, president and chief executive officer at Chariton Valley. “Chariton Valley is committed to the region’s future—the investment we made building a secure fiber network will benefit people living in north-central and northeast Missouri for the next three decades. However, we also understand that we are responsible for protecting our customers from the increasing threat of digital dangers that come along with the positive generational impact of secure, fast Wi-Fi. By adding critical services like home network security and advanced parental controls, we will continue to invest in our customers by providing superior internet experiences long after the latest deals from our competitors expire.” Along with ProtectIQ and ExperienceIQ, EDGE Suites also includes connected home camera security systems (Arlo Secure). Additionally, Calix is launching two new managed offerings this summer: social media monitoring (Bark) and connected device protection (Servify Care). “Chariton Valley’s incredible first two months offering ProtectIQ to all customers underlines why today’s successful broadband business must be about more than just fast Wi-Fi, ProtectIQ has helped BSPs of all sizes block millions of digital threats in 2022. The Missouri-based market leader competes against a billion-dollar market cap company and wins because it leverages the full power of the Revenue EDGE platform to easily and quickly launch turnkey, managed offerings like ProtectIQ that improve the customer experience. We look forward to supporting Chariton Valley’s continued growth as they evolve their value proposition to reflect their commitment to protecting customers in north-central and northeast Missouri.” Matt Collins, executive vice president of commercial operations and chief marketing officer at Calix About Calix Calix, Inc.

Xage Recognized in 2022 Gartner® Innovation Insight for Cyber-Physical Systems Protection Platforms

Xage | August 20, 2022

Xage, the zero trust real-world security company, was recently cited as a Representative Vendor among CPS Protection Platforms in Gartner 2022 Innovation Insight for Cyber-Physical Systems Protection Platforms report. The company was also named in Gartner 2022 Market Guide for Operational Technology Security. “As organizations connect operational or mission-critical systems, or deploy automation and digital transformation technology, they create cyber-physical systems (CPS) that security and risk management leaders must accommodate. Enter cyber-physical systems protection platforms — new solutions for a new security reality,” said Gartner analysts Katell Thielemann. “The changing technology and threat landscape is forcing security and risk management leaders to think about security differently when it comes to CPS. A new discipline of CPS asset-centric security is evolving, anchored by a new set of CPS protection platform vendors.” Asset-centric security allows operators to move beyond the old network-centric security model – aiming to keep hackers off the network – to a modern security architecture that protects access to each asset individually regardless of who has network-level presence. In fact, Gartner predicts that through 2025, 70% of companies will deploy CPS protection platforms as the first step in their asset-centric journey. “An asset-centric approach to access management – implementing strong credentials, password rotation, multi-factor authentication (MFA) and asset-by-asset access control – is critical to protect assets from attack. “Xage has seen in our customer deployments how an asset-centric security approach enables strong zero trust protection which can be achieved without ripping and replacing existing systems and infrastructure.” Duncan Greatwood, CEO of Xage Xage helps operators protect their assets using an identity-centric, asset-centric zero trust architecture. Xage’s capabilities include identity-based access management and privilege enforcement, zero trust remote access, multi-layer multi-factor authentication (MFA), and dynamic data security that protects sensitive operational data. About Xage Xage is the first and only zero trust real-world security company. The Xage Fabric accelerates and simplifies the way enterprises secure, manage and transform digital operations across OT, IT, and cloud. Xage solutions include Identity & Access Management (IAM), remote access, and dynamic data security, all powered by the Xage Fabric.

Laminar Named a Sample Vendor for Data Security Posture Management in 2022 Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Data Security

Laminar | August 24, 2022

Laminar, a public cloud data security provider, today announced that it has been named by Gartner as a Sample Vendor for Data Security Posture Management (DSPM) in the Hype Cycle for Data Security, 2022. In addition to referencing Laminar, the Hype Cycle also gives DSPM a benefit rating of “transformational,” the highest benefit rating possible. Laminar is a cloud data security platform that delivers autonomous, agentless, and continuous data security for everything that you build and run in the cloud. Laminar provides autonomous discovery and classification for all data across AWS, Azure, GCP, and Snowflake into a cloud data catalog, prioritization of data assets by our proprietary risk model, an agentless and asynchronous approach to DSPM to reduce the exposure surface without impacting performance, and continuous monitoring to detect data leaks in real time. “We have consistently heard from our customers that the visibility provided by the Laminar platform is transformational and we are thrilled to see Gartner classify DSPM as such in this Hype Cycle report. “We are thrilled that Gartner and the market are recognizing the need for DSPM. We believe that this recognition validates our view that organizations must move to a data-centric security approach that enables data democratization, safely.” Amit Shaked, co-founder and CEO, Laminar According to Gartner, “Organizations face challenges mitigating data security and privacy risks as data rapidly proliferates across multi-cloud and hybrid IT architectures. Identifying meaningful data risk is impossible to solve without combining metrics from data sensitivity, data lineage, infrastructure configurations that create data risks and access risk into a common view. This is an urgent problem that is encouraging rapid growth in the availability and maturation of this technology.” As Gartner explained, “DSPM provides visibility of inconsistent security posture by analyzing a data map of user access to various datasets for identifying business risks. DSPM accelerates assessments of how data security posture can be enforced through complementary data security controls to reduce business risks despite the speed, complexity, dynamics and scale of hybrid IT and multi-cloud deployments.” The drivers of DSPM adoption according to Gartner include: Need to create a data map of user access against specific datasets has been a complex process in the past because traditional data security and IAM products are siloed in the way they operate. Need to map and track the evolution and data lineage across structured and unstructured formats, and across all potential data locations and shadow data, is critical to achieve consistent analysis. This is an emerging driver that is currently in evolution. The growth of regulations that require a data risk assessment has created the need for tools that can assess DSG policies. Need to protect data against exposure (e.g., cloud misconfigurations, excessive access privileges or data residency risks that arise due to geographic locations and access pathways to data). Combination of data observability features, such as real-time visibility into data flows, risk and compliance with data security controls, with the objective to identify security gaps and undue exposure. This recognition comes on the heels of growing business momentum at Laminar. The company recently doubled its total amount of funding raised in six months to a total of $67 million. Additionally, Laminar was recognized by Fortress Cyber Security Awards and the Global InfoSec awards, and was named a TAG Cyber Distinguished Vendor.
