AEP Networks Receives Best Security Solution for Government in SC Magazine Awards 2007

SOMERSET, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 30, 2007 -- AEP Networks, the leader in policy-based networking, announced today that its AEP Net Remote was voted Best Security Solution for Government at the annual SC Awards ceremony held on April 24 at the Hurlingham Club in London.

This award reflects on the growing contribution made by AEP Networks to securing a wide range of networks in UK Government. The company was singled out as the winner in a very strong field by the judging panel comprising senior European security experts.

The capacity for home and mobile working is central to the UK Government's Transformational Government agenda. For many Public Sector employees, industry standard remote access solutions such as AEP's Netilla Security Platform SSL VPN product are more than adequate, but for the significant numbers who handle classified data, remote access to their information has not previously been viable. The AEP Net Remote is a purpose built solution that enables Government employees to access classified data remotely using Broadband, WiFi, or even 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. AEP's leading Key Management solution has automated most of the management functions, dramatically reducing the cost of ownership against competing products.

"This award clearly underscores AEP Networks' market and thought leadership in our space," said Pat Donnellan, CEO of AEP Networks. "Government organizations achieve immediate flexibility of working through the AEP Net Remote. All employees can now work remotely, regardless of the sensitivity of the data they are working on, and at a cost previously associated only with commercial solutions. This flexibility of working will dramatically reduce infrastructure and operating costs."
