AEP Systems Signs Distributors In Europe and Israel

Dublin, Ireland October 28, 2004 AEP Systems, the high-speed security company, expands the sale of its Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) VPN into Europe and Israel by partnering with RanTek and Trekdata Technologies, value added distributors of network and security products. AEP SureWare A-Gate has seen continued interest from distributors around the world, proving to be an attractive product for channel distribution.

In the last quarter, AEP Systems signed partnerships with distributors and resellers in the US, Europe and the Middle East. The success of AEP SureWare A-Gate s channel sales is due to SureWare A-Gate s simple and cost-effective pricing model and because it offers an effective SSL VPN solution for businesses of all sizes.

Our aggressive pricing structure makes SureWare A-Gate a channel-friendly product. The one-time purchase price does away with confusing pricing structures, such as extra user and feature fees, said Helen Kenny, VP of Marketing at AEP Systems. SureWare A-Gate is the only SSL VPN on the market with a truly cost-effective pricing model, making it an attractive solution for both small businesses and large enterprises.

AEP SureWare A-Gate is an SSL VPN hardware appliance that provides secure and authenticated remote access to a company s internal applications. SureWare A-Gate has a rich feature set that meets the needs of businesses with anywhere from 50 to thousands of remote users. RanTek and Trekdata will actively promote and distribute SureWare A-Gate and will provide support services to customers.

SureWare A-Gate is an excellent addition to RanTek s product offering, said Rene Pedersen, Sales Director at RanTek in Denmark. We evaluate products very carefully and only choose to distribute them if they are of high technical quality. We are delighted to bring SureWare A-Gate onboard because it offers solid technology, a scalable solution for small and medium-sized businesses and large enterprises, and because it is competitively priced.

The Israeli market is highly aware of IT security issues and sees SSL VPN technology as an attractive way to secure data, especially for small businesses that need to provide remote access to employees who work from home or who are on the road, said Rikardo Resnik, CEO of Trekdata in Israel. Partnering with AEP Systems fits our strategy to align with top security manufacturers. SureWare A-Gate provides the most complete and affordable SSL VPN solution for our customers.

It s key to have partners in place who know their local markets and have reputations for providing quality service, said Kenny. RanTek is well known for quick responses, prompt deliveries and professional, long-term relationships. Trekdata works with more than 500 resellers and over 150 of them buy from Trekdata each month.
