Napera Networks Expands Operations in Asia and Signs New Distribution Partnerships in Japan and Malaysia

Asian Expansion Comes as Napera Launches New Version of Its Network Access Control Solution That Integrates Additional Security Features and Japanese Localization

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - November 17, 2008) - Napera Networks (www.napera.com), the only company providing network access control (NAC) solutions designed for small and medium-sized enterprises, is expanding operations throughout the Asia region. The company today announced two new distribution partnerships in Japan and Malaysia, with JTS (www.jts-japan.co.jp) and 3ntity Berhad (http://www.3ntity.com) respectively. Through these alliances, Napera will roll-out its partner program in these regions, working with local value added resellers, system integrators, and other partners to provide network security products and services to the area's businesses.

Napera's premier product is the Napera N24, a network access control solution that includes a network appliance and integrated Web-based management service. Napera provides a single solution that combines computer health, identity enforcement, and guest access, which works seamlessly across wired and wireless networking environments.

Coinciding with these partnerships, Napera is releasing a new version of its solution that integrates additional security features, including a built-in network firewall, DHCP server and remote access VPN. This allows smaller companies to deploy a single solution to control network access for all users, whether they are working remotely or on the local area network, saving time and money.

The Napera N24 solution also now features a localized Japanese user interface. When an end-user's browser is set to Japanese, he or she will automatically be presented with the Napera portal pages in Japanese. The new UI also features simplified icons and updated messages for health and remediation. Other languages will follow in future releases.

Napera is delivering on an aggressive product roadmap to provide partners with a complete portfolio of complimentary network security products and services.
