The report recognizes the Xceedium GateKeeper™ (, a hardened appliance that centralizes and extends control of high-risk users beyond the application layer to all critical IT resources, enabling cost-effective enforcement of policy, monitoring, tracking, recording and comprehensive reporting of all user events for auditors. Enterprise and government clients rely on the Xceedium GateKeeper to balance implementation and validation of compliance controls with the need for operational efficiency.
