AppGuard® for AFCEA Members on CauseNetwork Preferred Price and $5 Donation to AFCEA Educational Foundation STEM Program


CHANTILLY, VA. (February 9, 2015) Blue Ridge Networks, an established provider of cybersecurity solutions, announced their partnership with the AFCEA Educational Foundation to distribute AppGuard, their award winning endpoint protection, thru CauseNetwork to AFCEA members. AFCEA members can purchase AppGuard through www.ShopForStem.org at a preferred price of $19.95 (regularly $29.95) for each license. In addition, Blue Ridge will donate $5.00 to the AFCEA Educational Foundation STEM scholarship program for each license purchased.
The rash of recent successful cybersecurity exploits has demonstrated that traditional approaches to cybersecurity protection are no longer enough to keep up with the escalation of advanced threats. AppGuard brings innovation and value to an industry served by many AFCEA International corporate members that are looking for new solutions to address critical cybersecurity threats to our businesses and our nation.
“AppGuard is a suite of seamlessly integrated Isolation and Containment, Application Control, Memory Guard, and other patented advanced technologies that prevents first-stage attacks.” explained John Higginbotham, CEO of Blue Ridge. “It delivers a comprehensive new approach to defeat malware, targeted attacks, phishing attacks, zero-day threats, and many other advanced threats before they can launch and do damage without requiring detection, scanning, signatures, or updates. AppGuard is designed to provide “futureproof” protection by preventing exploits even from undetected and unknown threats.”
“We’re delighted to be able to offer this kind of solution to our audience because for many of them – this is their business” said Dr. Vince Patton, Executive Director of AFCEA Educational Foundation. “Helping to highlight technologies and opportunities is part of what we strive to provide to our members. We’re grateful to Blue Ridge for making AppGuard available to our members at a special price and for the generous donation to our scholarship program. Everyone wins here.”
