AEP Networks Wins NJTC Innovation Award

Product Innovation and Value Keys to Winning Award

SOMERSET, NJ--(Marketwire - October 29, 2007) - AEP Networks, the leader in policy-based networking, was awarded the Information Technology Innovation award at the New Jersey Technology Council (NJTC) Technology Trends / Innovation Expo on October 25, 2007.

Innovation is the hallmark of the world's most successful companies, whether exhibited through unusual products or groundbreaking services. The NJTC recognized the most innovative products and solutions from throughout the mid-Atlantic region.

AEP Networks was recognized for its AEP Netilla Security Platform (NSP) SSL VPN with Geographic Load Balancing for Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity.

Emergencies cause disruptions and can inflict huge economic losses as organizations struggle to adjust and recover. During such times, the fact that an organization's employees are equipped to work from home (or anywhere there is an Internet browser) can significantly help business activity continue. With its low costs, application access flexibility, high security, and overall simplicity, the NSP has been used for the diverse remote access needs of AEP's customers during normal course of operations, while also satisfying the unique demands during emergency situations.

"The NJTC is proud to call AEP Networks a member and is equally thrilled to be able to congratulate the growing company on winning the Information Technology Innovation award," stated Maxine Ballen, President and CEO of the NJTC. "Secure networking is a key concern for the NJTC and we applaud the wonderful, innovative work being done by AEP Networks."

"It is an honor to be given this award," said Pat Donnellan, CEO of AEP Networks. "We've had a multitude of successful installations of our SSL VPN technology. We're making significant inroads in the disaster recovery and business continuity planning marketplace with the geographic load balancing capabilities of the NSP. This award further validates the hard work and efforts of our team."
