Blue Ridge Regional Jail Authority Locks Down on Web Security


The Blue Ridge Regional Jail Authority (BRRJA) has transferred its
website to a new environment hosted by Richmond, Virginia based
e-government specialists, Virginia Interactive (VI). The new hosting
environment offers security that far exceeds what was previously
utilized by the BRRJA. This is a first-time partnership between the two

Formed in 1994, and located in Lynchburg, Virginia, the primary mission
of the Blue Ridge Regional Jail Authority is to support the criminal
justice system by operating its centers in a manner that produces a safe
and secure environment for the public, staff, and inmates.

"After an impressive presentation to our staff by (Virginia Interactive
president) Travis Sarkees, and an informational meeting with members of
his staff, it took very little time to determine that VI was the host we
wanted," said Tim Trent, an administrator with BRRJA. "VI's knowledge
and security measures are second to none. Our website migration was
seamless and fast. We look forward to a long-term relationship with
Virginia Interactive."

The Virginia Interactive-hosted website for Blue Ridge Regional Jail
Authority is live, and can be accessed at
