AEP Netilla Security Platform Re-Certified for ICSA Labs SSL-TLS Certification

SOMERSET, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 8, 2007 -- AEP Networks, the leader in policy-based networking, announced that its AEP Netilla Security Platform (NSP) SSL VPN has recently achieved re-certification for SSL-TLS VPN functionality from ICSA Labs, an independent division of Cybertrust.

To attain SSL-TLS VPN certification, the NSP satisfied 100 percent of ICSA Labs' criteria and passed a rigorous mix of security, performance and administrative tests, including: cryptography; administrative authentication and control; session control/clean-up; logging; and user authentication and access control.

ICSA Labs certification is based upon an industry-accepted set of criteria determined by a consortium of SSL-TLS VPN vendors, end users and ICSA Labs' certification specialists. The NSP is one of only two SSL VPNs certified against the latest version (Version 2.1) of ICSA Labs SSL-TLS certification criteria.

"Our NSP SSL VPN has passed the stringent testing process, continuing to satisfy all the requirements of ICSA Labs," commented Reginald P. Best, EVP/GM of AEP Networks' Application Security Business.
