Espion and PortWise forges Partnership

Dublin, Ireland, Thursday, 10 November, 2005. Leading security specialist, Espion, has signed an exclusive distributorship agreement with PortWise to distribute its Mobile Identity and Access Management software in Ireland.

PortWise provides a software Identity and Access Management Platform which targets the Mobile Enterprise to securely connect business with their mobile employees, business partners and end-customers.

Jim Lehane, sales director of Espion, says: “PortWise goes beyond traditional security access which is dominated by the use of passwords alone. The PortWise software platform offers a comprehensive, integrated and secure approach to connecting the Mobile Enterprise with business applications and data.

Commenting on the partnership, Kanwar Loyal, UK & Eire channel manager for PortWise, says: “In the business world today, corporate boundaries are likely to be stretched across offices in disparate geographies and many remote users, business partners and end-customers with differing requirements all relying on remote access to enterprise applications. The delivery and accessibility of these applications is the critical factor for businesses to remain efficient and competitive. PortWise provides a platform that provides a tightly coupled set of Identity and Access Management services such as end-point integrity, two-factor authentication, reduced sign-on, granular authorisation, and access compliance auditing that work seamlessly together with SSL VPN based application access.

“We believe that the combination of the PortWise product suite and Espion’s security knowledge will enable Irish corporations to get up to speed with secure mobile access very quickly.”

Using the PortWise software platform, it is possible to provide completely secure access to critical information and applications for internal users, the mobile workforce and integrated distributed partner networks — from any device in any location. PortWise 4.0 enables organisations to securely mobilise their workforce and boost productivity of employees and partners, while completely protecting the integrity of their organisation.
