Calif. company plants federal roots in Md.

Oblix Inc., a Cupertino, Calif., developer of identity-based security solutions, is opening a federal government sales office in Silver Spring, Md., the company announced Nov. 5.

The expansion reflects the company's commitment to aiding government agencies with the new cybersecurity guidelines as offered out by the Homeland Security Commission, as well as addressing concerns over security and access control of government portals.

Oblix has served both commercial and government customers since its founding in 1996, said Shelley Wilson, vice president of marketing. "Now, the federal government has become so important, we've dedicated more resources to it," she said.

The company provides enterprise identity management and Web access control solutions to its customers, Wilson said, including the Defense Department and other government agencies.

"We have a solution ... that provides an infrastructure for managing online digital identities about people," she said, noting that North Carolina uses it to create and manage digital identities for its employees and potentially for its citizens.

Oblix also provides security through single sign-on and authorization, Wilson said.
