Apani Networks Teams Up with Computer Consulting Partners, Ltd. to Provide Security Solution for Securing Inside the Network Perimeter

BREA, CA and SCOTTSDALE, AZ – January 17, 2006 – Apani Networks, the leading enterprise network security software provider focused on securing inside the network perimeter, and Computer Consulting Partners, Ltd. (CCP), a leading enterprise network services provider focusing on providing security solutions for the Fortune 500, have partnered to deliver a new solution for securing data in motion and protecting data at rest.

CCP will now offer Apani EpiForce 2.0, a centralized security system, to clients needing to lock down their internal networks to reduce the risk of data theft. Customers with large, distributed deployments where sensitive data is transmitted and stored will now benefit from the availability of EpiForce 2.0 which provides a management tool for point-to-point encryption while automating the enforcement of security policies. EpiForce 2.0 can now support up to 100,000 software agents with up to two million security policy relationships, while eliminating the complex management issues through an easy to use centralized administration console.

Developed to effectively secure data inside the network perimeter, EpiForce logically segments the network into dynamic security zones. EpiForce 2.0 manages security relationships, reports on attempted unauthorized activity and provides an effective audit trail to reduce the overall cost of audit.

“We’re pleased to work with CCP as a new integration and solution partner in Apani’s Armour Reseller program,” said Michelle Tack, vice president of sales, Apani Networks. “CCP has built a solid reputation for serving customers with best-of-breed IT security solutions.
