Bethesda, Md., Oct. 4, 2005—KoolSpan, Inc., the leading provider of plug-and-play security solutions that bridge networks, users, and devices, today announced its flagship two-factor authentication solution, SecurEdge, will be used to secure managed solutions from Mavenspire, Inc., a KoolSpan partner. With KoolSpan, Mavenspire can use a single security product to secure Voice over IP, iSCSI replication, and wireless data streams between customer sites and its Data Center.
SecurEdge provides an ultra-secure and consistent way for end users inside and outside of the firewall to access their company’s private network. Users may connect from anywhere over wired or wireless networks, enabling IT Managers to install, configure and support one access method for a variety of networks while dramatically simplifying the end user’s experience.
“We needed a solution that provided ultra-secure communications between our Data Center and client’s networks, but allowed for the synchronization of terabytes of data without impacting performance or bandwidth, said Jeffrey M. Mims, president of Mavenspire. We chose KoolSpan’s two-factor authentication to create a simple, unified method for securing connections, including Voice over IP and iSCSI replication streams for business continuity.”
KoolSpan Chief Executive Officer Tony Fascenda said, “We are pleased to expand our reseller partnership with Mavenspire to include deployment of SecurEdge for secure data center encryption.
