Solutions by Compliance

Export Controls (ITAR and EAR)

Complying with ITAR and EAR 

ITAR, or the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, are issued by the United States government to control the export and import of defense-related articles and services on the United States Munitions List (USML). In short, the U.S. Government requires all manufacturers, exporters, and brokers of defense articles, defense services or related technical data to be ITAR compliant. The Export Administration Regulations (EAR) are issued by the United States Department of Commerce to control the export of items which are designed for a commercial purpose which could have military applications, such as computer hardware and software (Commerce Control List). 

ITAR and EAR violations can pose a huge risk for impacted companies. Defense contractors have been fined tens of millions of dollars for failing to control access to EAR and ITAR regulated data. And they can impact more than just the bottom-line – criminal penalties of 10 to 20 years in prison, depending on the regulation, are also possible. 

Secure Access to Network Applications and Resources

If your company falls under ITAR or EAR and you are providing access to product development plans, hardware specifications, source code, and other sensitive information, then you must implement security controls to ensure compliance. The rules apply to internal and external users or groups that have access to regulated content in the US and in many other countries as defined in the requirements. 

Ensure secure access to ITAR-controlled content by restricting access to network resources based on role and context. Cryptzone’s context-aware dynamic access control solution helps to tightly restrict who can access the information stored on your network, making non-authorized resources invisible and inaccessible to any users that should not have access. AppGate takes contextual attributes into consideration including the user's identity, the type of device being used, geographical location and so on, before allowing access to resources to meet strict ITAR requirements. 


AppGate is a network access security solution that reduces your attack surface by 99% while significantly lowering costs. Based on the Software-Defined Perimeter model, AppGate enforces fine-grained network permissions, automatically tailored to each unique user’s needs.
