AEP Netilla Security Platform Release 5.4 SSL VPN Now Shipping

SOMERSET, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 4, 2006 -- AEP Networks, the leader in policy-based networking, today announced general availability of its latest Secure Sockets Layer Virtual Private Network (SSL VPN) platform. The AEP Netilla Security Platform (NSP) is now shipping with Release 5.4, which includes significant scalability and performance improvements, major administrative upgrades, and other new features such as:

--  Load balancing for failover and scalability: The new AEP Netilla
    Security Platform Load Balancer (NSP-LB) appliance provides scalability and
    high availability for an NSP SSL VPN cluster. The NSP-LB platform is
    available in two models -- the entry-level Active-Active Failover (NSP-LBF)
    and the Active-Active Cluster (NSP-LBC) for larger deployments with up to
    15,000 concurrent users.
--  Citrix® Presentation Server policy and resource control: NSP
    administrators can control Citrix resource usage such as universal
    printing, audio resources, clipboard usage, drive mapping, and serial port
    redirection for greater security and performance management.
--  Seamless integration with PowerTerm® WebConnect from Ericom
    Software: This integration effort provides improved secure remote access to
    applications residing on Windows Terminal Servers and legacy host systems,
    offering the market a robust, secure and affordable alternative to Citrix
    Presentation Server and Citrix Access Gateway.
--  Native support for Microsoft IE7: Customers may upgrade to IE7 and
    take advantage of its new security and ease of use features. Seamless
    support of IE7 is particularly important since many users' browsers will be
    automatically updated to IE7 via the Windows XP Automatic Update mode.
    
The NSP 5.4, including the NSP-LB appliances, is available now via AEP channel partners worldwide.
