Device Authority and XIG Extend Partnership To Focus On Government and Public Sector Projects

Device Authority and XIG extend partnership to focus on Government and Public Sector projects

Extending their partnership from early last year, Device Authority and Crossroads Innovation Group (XIG), a Virginia-based consulting firm dedicated to emerging technologies, have further expanded their relationship to focus on securing digital transformation across Government and other Public Sector agencies.


While increasing attention has been paid to IoT security across many sectors, recent legislative activity such as White House Executive Order 14028 have resulted in significant industry focus on Government supply chain and critical infrastructure.  As many suppliers to the Public Sector seek to drive improvements and efficiencies in their supply chain security through the use of emerging technology, Device Authority and XIG’s combined expertise has proven perfectly suited to helping them to navigate this process in the most robust and secure way.


Darron Antill, CEO of Device Authority commented, “Almost two years following the White House Executive Order on CyberSecurity, it is great to see a renewed focus on the NIST framework and a Zero Trust approach to security to achieve complete device, data and operational trust.  Our work alongside XIG at the Stafford Test Bed has already delivered significant benefits for many organisations and we are looking forward to broadening this reach to support wider organisations.”


Khalil Yazdi, Chief Innovation Officer from XIG added, “The rise of global cybersecurity threats aimed at critical infrastructure, particularly exploits of poorly secured devices, spans Public Sector entities – whether at the national or local levels. Device Authority’s capabilities in managing the security lifecycle of connected devices, coupled with XIG’s strategic advisory services provides a powerful approach to arming organizations with the tools needed to mitigate direct threats and to more fully realize the benefits of emerging IoT capabilities in the delivery of essential public services.”
