Aladdin Joins Juniper Networks J-Partner Solutions Alliance Program

Aladdin eToken Two-Factor Authentication Devices and Juniper SSL VPN Solutions Deliver Secure Remote Access to the Enterprise

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - Aladdin Knowledge Systems (NASDAQ: ALDN), an information security leader specializing in authentication, software DRM and content security, today announced that it has joined the Juniper Networks J-Partner Program to offer enterprises Aladdin's eToken two-factor authentication devices with the Juniper Networks Secure Access SSL VPN solution.

Designed to ensure organizations secure remote access to business critical networks and resources, the interoperable solution enables enterprises to deploy a flexible, secure and scalable solution with multiple secure remote access technologies, including VPN and wireless, along with digital certificate (PKI) authentication and one-time-password (OTP). In addition, the combined solution will also provide organizations a means of continuously complying with industry regulations for accessing sensitive data -- such as PCI standards, HIPAA, SAFE, and Sarbanes-Oxley -- through verification of user identity for access privileges.

"Juniper is partnering with Aladdin to deliver high-performance networking solutions that customers require," said Doug Erickson, director of worldwide alliance and channel development at Juniper Networks. "Aladdin eToken solutions in combination with Juniper's Secure Access SSL VPN solutions extend the secure remote access experience beyond endpoint devices and enables customers to securely access their networks."

Aladdin eToken smartcard devices, including eToken Pro, eToken NG-FLASH and eToken NG-OTP, are now immediately available in conjunction with select Juniper SSL VPN solutions. The Aladdin eToken OTP solutions enable secure access to the Juniper SSL VPN client via secure one-use password and username credentials. Aladdin's powerful Token Management System (TMS) is also available for full lifecycle device management of all Aladdin eToken devices.

"By partnering with Juniper Networks, we are able to offer a comprehensive secure remote access solution to the identity and access management market," said Phil Pavay, vice president of global business development at Aladdin Knowledge Systems. "Enterprise customers deploying the interoperable solution can rest assured that only authorized users are accessing their critical intellectual property and conducting secure business operation."

Aladdin will feature the interoperable solutions at Juniper's upcoming annual J-Partner Summits held April 27-29, 2008 at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas and on May 19-22 in Lisbon, Portugal.
