Cyber Operations Inc., based in Pelham, received a patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office this month for its ACL Manager, an advanced network security software solution.

Cyber Operations CEO, Philip Ruggieri said in a press release that the technology brings a powerful solution to the company&8217;s customers.

&8220;Around the world, companies and governments have placed their mission-critical operations on the net. This move has increased the risk of unauthorized network access,&8221; Ruggieri said. &8220;Our patented software helps to close network exposures and reduce business risk.&8221;

The ACL Manager is designed as a cost-effective security for companies, universities and government agencies.

The technology is embedded in the company&8217;s family of network security products and strengthens and streamlines the method by which network gateways and routers manage and control external access to private networks.

Kevin Etheridge, inventor of the software and chief technology officer for Cyber Operations, said the program brings various networks together so customers have a broad look at how secure their systems are.

The software has even been used by the U.S. Department of Defense for global network protection.

Cyber Operations Inc. provides comprehensive security solutions to companies and governmental agencies through its integration of large-scale network security and biometric and access control technologies.
