GuestGate™ Wins 'Innovation of the Year' Award for Advances in Secure Web Access

INTELLINET NETWORK SOLUTIONS Product Selected as Area's Biggest Technological Breakthrough in 2007

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - November 15, 2007) - INTELLINET NETWORK SOLUTIONS, provider of the industry's broadest selection of active and passive networking products, has received another significant award for its breakthrough technology in the market of secure Internet access across multiple vertical applications and industries. The company's GuestGate™ Internet Access Device has been named "Innovation of the Year" by the Tampa Bay area's most prominent technology industry association, Tampa Bay Technology Forum (TBTF). The award was presented at TBTF's fourth annual technology industry awards event November 8. GuestGate enables businesses, organizations and facilities of all sizes to cost-effectively provide customers and other visitors secure Web access without compromising on-premise networks or leaving visitor systems vulnerable to intrusion from other guest systems.

"Being selected for 'Innovation of the Year' reflects our commitment to technological advancement on behalf of the reseller channel," commented Michael Thiel of INTELLINET NETWORK SOLUTIONS. "We're continuously looking for ways to help our partners become more successful, to deliver better technological solutions and exceptional business results with respect to all our core competencies."

INTELLINET NETWORK SOLUTIONS™ has exclusively served independent resellers and solution providers since its inception, leveraging its vast experience in overseas production, design and distribution of top-quality IT products. All products include a unique lifetime warranty, plus technical support, brand support, attractive packaging and point-of-sale materials.

The Internet Access Solution Across All Vertical Markets

"We designed and developed GuestGate to address a distinct and pervasive business need," Thiel pointed out. "People today want convenient, free Internet access wherever they go. With GuestGate, any business can now provide this service without relying on IT personnel spending countless hours setting up secure accounts for guest users or reconfiguring the network to accommodate them."

GuestGate can be found today in conference rooms, lobbies and other waiting areas of corporations as well as in education and training facilities, financial institutions, food and beverage operations, government agencies, doctors' offices and hospitals, hotels, retailers, law firms, manufacturing environments, transportation terminals, and even police stations.

GuestGate is fully compatible with wireless access points and automatically adjusts the host network to accommodate guest computers' Internet settings, eliminating the need for time-consuming configuration of visitors' laptops. The INTELLINET NETWORK SOLUTIONS patent-pending Layer 3 client isolation feature restricts connections between guest computers, and HNP™ (Host Network Protection) technology regulates or restricts user access to the host network.
