AEP Networks Named SC Awards Finalist in Two Categories

Nominations Acknowledge Security Technology Innovation

LONDON -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 22, 2007 --AEP Networks, the leader in policy networking, has been named a finalist in two categories of the 2007 SC Magazine Awards Europe program, demonstrating outstanding achievement in information technology (IT) security.

The AEP Net Remote for Mobile Working has been voted a finalist in the Best Security Solution for Government category.

The capacity for home and mobile working is central to the UK Government's Transformational Government agenda. AEP's Net Remote is a purpose built solution that enables Government employees to access classified data remotely using Broadband, WiFi, or dial-up. It is fully approved under the UK CAPS scheme to carry data marked up to CONFIDENTIAL.

AEP Net Remote provides a fully managed solution for remote access to sensitive data that is easy to set up and install. Once established, all devices are managed from a single management centre, with the ability to control and audit the network and security aspects separately.

The company's AEP Netilla Security Platform (NSP) was also named a finalist, in the Best Remote Access category of the competition.

The NSP SSL VPN enables secure, web-browser access to a broad range of business applications. With any PC or laptop, telecommuters, day extenders, branch office employees, business partners and a mobile sales force can quickly and securely reach virtually any resource. NSP includes features such as multiple access modes (thin client, Web, SSL tunnel) to support the broadest range of enterprise applications; comprehensive client integrity; advanced V-Realms authentication engine; device identification (the ability to authenticate remote clients/PCs); and seamless support for both Citrix and Windows Terminal Services-based environments.

Winners will be announced at an awards event to be held in London on 24 April 2007.
