iPolicy Networks and igxglobal Deliver Next Generation Security Solutions to Fortune 2000 Enterprises

FREMONT, Calif. and Rocky Hill, Conn., – Sept. 21, 2004 iPolicy Networks, inventor of the Intrusion Prevention Firewall for real-time network protection, and igxglobal, a premier Northeast region security integrator, announced today that the specialized security solutions provider has added the complete suite of iPolicy Networks’ Intrusion Prevention Firewall systems to its exclusive list of security tools and offerings. Together, the companies will offer Fortune 2000 enterprises next generation security solutions that address their high-performance, scalability and network management requirements.

“With today’s rapidly evolving threats, our enterprise customers need technology that eliminates vulnerabilities and plugs security holes in corporate networks without compromising performance, scalability, manageability, and flexibility,” said Katarina Almqvist, director, manufacturer relations of igxglobal. “Teaming up with iPolicy Networks’ single pass inspection engine and vision will now enable us to offer high-performance, adaptive intrusion prevention and firewall technology to our enterprise customers.”

Under the terms of the agreement, iPolicy Networks and igxglobal will together provide comprehensive network security solutions to igxglobal’s extensive network of Fortune 2000 enterprises primarily in the Northeastern region of the United States. As a security centric VAR since 1997, igxglobal has the expertise, team of engineering talent, and 24×7 remote management capabilities to deliver dependable data security, while serving to improve the functionality and performance of the enterprise.

iPolicy Network’s Intrusion Prevention Firewall goes beyond traditional access control and delivers a comprehensive set of firewall defense mechanisms. A key innovation of its architecture is iPolicy’s patent pending Single Pass Inspection Engine(TM) that has the ability to perform high speed layer 3-7 inspection of traffic for real-time attack prevention and enforcement of security policies. It enables iPolicy Networks to successfully block today’s increasingly sophisticated threats, with no compromise to network performance, both data throughput and latency. iPolicy Networks’ Intrusion Prevention Firewall incorporates multiple firewall defense mechanisms including stateful firewall, intrusion detection and prevention, DoS and DDoS mitigation, URL filtering, VPN, and antivirus/antispam intrinsically built into the firewall, thereby eliminating legacy firewall security holes. The Single Pass Inspection Engine enables these multiple security defense mechanisms to run concurrently, effectively safeguarding networks even at high throughput from 140 Mbps to 4 Gbps.

“While the demand for security solutions is growing, many of the conventional solutions available today are outdated, disparate and difficult to implement and manage,” said Gajraj Singh, director of channel marketing and strategic alliances at iPolicy Networks. “iPolicy Networks’ Intrusion Prevention Firewall products will provide igxglobal with next generation solutions that deliver comprehensive and scalable network security to enterprises and enterprise data centers with flexible management capabilities. Working with a strong partner like igxglobal will enable us to rapidly scale and provide better support for our growing VAR network, and bring our unique solutions to a broader base of customers.”
