Vigilar Adds Legra Systems’ Switching Suite to its Best-Of-Breed Wireless LAN Solutions
ATLANTA, March 22, 2004 – Vigilar, Inc. today announced a partnership with secure wireless LAN solution provider Legra Systems that will deliver Vigilar’s enterprise customers a wireless solution that provides centralized security and management capabilities and is most like a wired LAN.
Vigilar, an information security solutions provider dedicated to the delivery of privacy and risk management solutions, will incorporate Legra’s Wireless LAN Switching Solution into the best-of-breed WLANs it designs for companies in the finance, healthcare, and retail industries. The Legra Wireless LAN Switching Solution is comprised of the LS2012 WLAN switch, LR Radio access points and LM6000 Network Manager. The solution features layers of built-in security, including wire-speed encryption, and was the first wireless LAN switch to be Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance.
“The Legra Wireless LAN Switching Solution offers our customers a platform on which to scale their wireless infrastructure,” said Joseph Dell, Vigilar’s chief technology officer. “With security centralized in the Legra switch, the Legra WLAN solution enables customers to use WPA to secure their wireless infrastructures from the client through to the switch. Because it was architected with Legra’s CryptoFlex chip, it eliminates the possibility of any performance drags, due to security, seen in traditional wireless products. Legra offers high performance and centralized management in a single product.”
With this agreement, Vigilar also becomes a member of the Legra Systems Partner Program, which helps build their partners’ sales pipeline with heavy up-front investments in marketing campaigns and customer incentives. “Vigilar counts some of the marquee names in networking security – Check Point, Nokia, RSA Security – among its partners. For them to add us to their leading group of vendor partners is an honor and highlights Legra’s commitment to wireless security,” said Legra Vice President of Sales Chris Metaxas. “We’re looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Vigilar.”
