--  Unique Ecosystem of Leading Security Vendors Provides Customers Access
    to a Total Solution for Layered Security
--  A10 Networks, Aladdin, Belden, Extreme Networks, FireScope, Extricom,

AirTight® Networks, the leading provider of wireless intrusion prevention systems, today announced the launch of the AirTight Networks Referral Partner Program at Interop 2007 in Las Vegas. The program strategically aligns security companies with complementary technologies as referral partners, providing customers with access to a total solution for a layered security deployment.

"We work closely with our customers to understand their overall security challenges and strategy," said David Canavan, vice president, OEM sales and business development at AirTight. By aligning with these leading vendors, AirTight has created a unique ecosystem of companies which can help customers quickly put together a security solution with products covering areas AirTight does not and which complement our products to provide the most complete protection for their networks."

Members of the AirTight Networks Security Referral Partner Program include A10 Networks, Aladdin, Arc Sight, Belden, Extreme Networks, Extricom, FireScope, LVL7 (a wholly owned subsidiary of Broadcom Corporation), NextHop and WildPackets.

"It's clear that wireless and wireless security are growing necessities for Aladdin customers," said Phil Pavay, vice president of global business development at Aladdin Knowledge Systems. "The AirTight referral program allows Aladdin to quickly bring AirTight into a sales situation to fill the wireless component alongside our innovative offerings. This stands as a clear benefit for both customers and program members, bringing together many of the industry's technology leaders and maximizing security for organizations."

"Belden is the brand customers count on to provide the best product performance and expert care and advice -- whenever and wherever they need to transmit a signal," said Bill Miller, Director of Marketing, Adjacent and New Technologies at Belden. "To complete a solution, we bring our customers only those vendors who meet our strict standards for performance and reliability. We believe our reference relationship with AirTight adds value and a layer of security our customers need."

"Our customers appreciate the convenience and insight they gain when Extreme Networks brings industry-leading solution partners like AirTight to the table for enterprise wireless deployments. Unlike closed, monolithic products from other vendors, Extreme's open approach gives customers choice and control," said Suresh Gopalakrishnan, VP and General Manager of Emerging Products Group at Extreme.

"Security threats to businesses are becoming increasingly more organized and sophisticated," said Mark Lynd, President of FireScope. "The best way to combat this is for vendors to organize and combine our unique attributes to deliver better value and security to our clients. This alliance represents a massive step forward."
