Apani Showcases EpiForce VM at VMworld 2008

Company Executive to Speak About Considerations for Protecting Mixed Networks of Virtual and Physical Servers

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - September 15, 2008) - Apani®, the preeminent provider of cross-platform server isolation solutions for large enterprises, today announced that it will participate in VMworld 2008 taking place September 15-18, 2008 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev. Apani will showcase EpiForce® VM, the industry's first single platform for protecting virtual and physical networks. In addition, Apani's Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Ryan Malone, will speak on Tuesday, September 16, 2008 at 9:30 a.m. His presentation is titled, "Deploying Security in a Mixed Physical/Virtual Data Center" and will take place in the Solutions Exchange Theater.

Now in its fifth year, VMworld 2008 is the leading industry event for all IT professionals looking for actionable ideas, innovative products and best practices for virtualizing an enterprise. The event is sponsored by VMware and is attended by industry thought leaders worldwide.

In his address, Malone will share insights that will help organizations to reliably protect mixed virtual/physical data centers. Attendees will take away tips, recommendations and best practices for selecting a solution that is easy to use and cost-effective to implement and manage. The presentation will introduce an alternative to the silo approach that is currently taken to securing most data centers today.

A well-respected industry-veteran with over 15 years of marketing and business development expertise, Malone was instrumental in the recent launch of EpiForce VM, the industry's first software-based enterprise security solution for mixed networks containing both physical and virtual servers, from a single platform. EpiForce VM is part of Apani's comprehensive enterprise security solutions suite and leverages the latest platform of the company's flagship product EpiForce 2.5.

EpiForce is a software-based alternative to using network firewalls and VLANs for enterprise level security inside the corporate network. EpiForce eliminates much of the costs associated with securing the corporate network, while introducing a significantly higher level of flexibility and efficiency to security administrators. EpiForce delivers cross-platform server isolation through logical security zoning and policy-based encryption of data in motion.

Apani recently announced a virtual appliance free trial version of EpiForce VM. The trial can be accessed on the Apani website at Apani will be taking registrations for the downloadable free trial at VMworld 2008 in their booth #553.
