I played around with this a lot over the past few months, it's pretty good, reminds me of Vunetrix in a lot of ways, just more applicable to what we do in our industry.

Unfortunately for me, it's extremely unlikely many of our DOD or Enterprise clients would be ok with the full time external connections to me, or anyone else.

Looks like a good solution for general commercial use though, as smaller clients don't have as many of those kinds of concerns, as long as it's done right.

Hi Michael -

Thanks for your comments and feedback. We've done well with large enterprises (2 of the top 5 healthcare orgs, 5 out of the top 20 technology companies, 25% of Ivy League schools, etc) - some use our On Premises version which does not require any external internet connection, and with some we are fully InfoSec compliant as a cloud offering because we only use an outbound only port and have a host of external pen tests and audits to share. Unlike a cloud-based surveillance or access control solution we are only looking at metadata, and do not require 2 way communications. Feel free to reach out to discuss more.

Hey John, thanks for clarifying, that's very helpful. I did a deep dive on your product, so I trust what you're saying is accurate. My comment about DOD and Enterprise adoption of this technology was geared more toward their risk appetite for new technology, rather than the software's security capabilities. Big organizations take longer to steer than smaller, more agile, and less critical customers.
