nexTier Networks Expands Partner Program Across North America and EMEA

New Partnerships Drive nexTier's Turnkey Security Appliance Deeper Into U.S. Government Vertical and Throughout United Arab Emirates and India

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - October 27, 2009) - nexTier Networks, the company redefining data leak prevention (DLP) with semantic analysis, today announced it has extended its channel presence to EMEA and further expanded its channel foothold within the U.S. government vertical. The DLP expert has signed on three new partners in the channel -- a U.S. channel partner focused on the government space and two value-added distributors (VADs) in EMEA. These new partners add to nexTier's growing worldwide channel partner base to deliver the industry's turnkey, next-generation DLP security appliance.

Through the nexTier Advantage Partner Program, the new channel partners are poised to bring nexTier's unique semantic analysis-based DLP appliances to their respective markets. Pre-built and pre-configured, the Compliance Enforcer 100 and Compliance Enforcer 200 appliances were designed to solve several key problems businesses are facing with other DLP solutions -- most notably that of managing unstructured data. Using semantic analysis, Compliance Enforcer appliances offer a stronger and more effective way of securing unstructured data.

nexTier has enlisted McLean, Va.-based Government Sales Force LLC (GSF) to deepen its presence in the government vertical. With a proven track record in government sales, GSF understands the unique challenges of the market and how best to position technology to break into the public sector.

"nexTier Networks' Compliance Enforcer appliances offer a unique and powerful tool in an organization's security strategy. Security is, of course, of paramount importance to government departments and agencies," said Mark Hogan, CEO of Government Sales Force LLC. "With nexTier, we can provide a differentiated product to our customers that not only fulfills their needs, but does so in a turnkey fashion. It can be out of the box and ready to go in less than 45 minutes."

Meanwhile, as nexTier continues to build on its success in North America, it is also expanding into EMEA with Intertec Systems LLC of Dubai and its Mumbai, India-based sister concern, Intertec Software Pvt. Ltd. Combined, the two VADs are providing a comprehensive, turnkey appliance and software solution that will enable nexTier to expand its reach across the GCC Gulf Countries and Indian Markets.

"nexTier Networks has provided us with a product that will enable our VADs to better position themselves as best-of-breed DLP solution providers," said Naresh Kothari, Managing Director at Intertec Systems LLC. "The quick deployment time and ease of use of the products make them ideal for our resellers, who are often fulfilling their integration roles under strict timeframes."

"These new partnerships with Government Sales Force, Intertec Systems and Intertec Software will expand our presence in both the government vertical and the EMEA region, which will open up our solutions to even more customers and resellers," said Tarique Mustafa, CEO and founder of nexTier Networks. "Our Compliance Enforcer appliances are ideally suited to VARs, VADs, systems integrators and distributors worldwide because they tackle common DLP problems in a unique way but without adding unnecessary complexity on top of the functionality. It makes the partner's job that much easier."
