Apani Networks to Present at RSA Conference 2006: Lowering the Total Cost of Ownership with an Improved Security Zoning Architecture

BREA, Calif. – January 31, 2006 – Apani Networks, the leading enterprise network security software provider focused on securing inside the network perimeter, today announced that Michelle Tack, a senior member of their executive management team, will be a featured speaker at the upcoming RSA Conference 2006 in San Jose. Ms. Tack will discuss how a software approach to security zoning and network segmentation contributes to a lower total cost of ownership for IT security enforcement. She is scheduled to speak at 9:00AM PST on Friday February 17th, 2006, as part of the general technical session.

Ms. Tack will discuss the current deperimeterization trend, the growing value of internal data and how security zones can be implemented to address this security challenge. Zoning can be implemented to help mitigate risk. With the software tools available today, this task can be accomplished cost effectively, reducing the overall cost of network ownership, even for large organizations with tight IT budgets and even tighter resources. Industry analysts suggest implementing a segmentation strategy as the first step in protecting against insider threats within the network perimeter – Tack will explain why doing this will actually free up IT resources.

Instrumental in leading the business development and distribution strategy for Apani Networks, Ms. Tack is an industry veteran with a 20-year track record of success with start-ups and high growth technology companies, combining technology, marketing and sales expertise with a strong sense of finding solid solutions to specific business problems. A graduate of McGill University in Montreal, Ms. Tack’s experience combines national and international assignments, covering a variety of technology disciplines from pure applications (Sarbanes-Oxley, government compliance, CRM and content management) to hardware-based infrastructure solutions.
