Secure Passage Adds Technology and Channel Reseller Partners in Response to Accelerated Global Demand for Automated Security Analysis and Compliance Management Solutions

McAfee, Channel Reseller Partners Join With Secure Passage to Deliver Solutions That Reduce the Cost and Complexity of Security and Compliance

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2009) - RSA CONFERENCE -- Secure Passage, the leading provider of Automated Security Analysis and Compliance solutions for firewalls, routers and switches, today announced that it has expanded its worldwide partner network. Under the expansion, it has initiated additional relationships with McAfee and grown its channel reseller network by 55 percent. Secure Passage grew its channel and technology partner network in response to accelerated global demand for its flagship FireMon solution. FireMon lowers the cost and complexity of security and compliance by automating the configuration and change management analysis process for network security devices.

Secure Passage's new partnership with McAfee will result in integration with ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO). This initiative adds to Secure Passage's long history of support and integration with industry-leading network devices and management platforms, including McAfee Sidewinder, Juniper Netscreen, Cisco, Check Point, Cross Beam, and Nokia. Partnerships with these industry-leading security and compliance ecosystem providers ensures that FireMon will continue to support traditional network device technologies, emerging technologies such as virtual firewalls, and next generation firewalls as they change and adapt to respond to the distinct demands of cloud computing environments. FireMon integrated with these technologies to offer combined solutions that effectively manage change and configuration processes, comply with industry, government and corporate regulations, minimize risk and reinforce customers' trust by providing a higher level of confidence in security and compliance.

Over the course of the past six months, Secure Passage has increased the size of its channel reseller network by 55 percent. Accuvant, ADSI, ESI, Redstone, and Shearwater Solutions are some of the latest resellers to join the 70-partner reseller network that includes longtime members Integralis, FishNet Security, Gotham Technologies, and Forsythe. Channel sales partners extend FireMon's availability to markets around the world. Recently, Secure Passage has added reseller partners in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas. With FireMon, resellers are able to give customers automated solutions that simplify the management and analysis of firewall, router and switch security policies, rule bases and objects.


"Our vision is to arm security teams worldwide with automated processes needed to quickly prove compliance for their network and security device," stated Jody Brazil, Secure Passage founder, president and CTO. "FireMon enables organizations to identify and analyze unused rules, automatically alert IT when a change is made that renders a device noncompliant, and cost effectively proves compliance. Our partners have the ability to deliver this reality for customers globally with the commitment and support from a proven industry leader."

"Our channel sales program will significantly increase Secure Passage's market penetration by authorizing our channel partners to resell the most comprehensive security analysis and compliance software on the market," said Rob Bykowski, Secure Passage COO. "Secure Passage is a recognized and trusted brand that resellers can leverage across industries, and our world-class support ensures that partners can stay focused on meeting the needs of their customers. We've created a win-win dynamic for us and our partners to satisfy our customers' needs."

"In today's economic environment, our global customers are looking to improve security and compliance, reduce complexity and lower costs," said Luis Palacio, director of vendor relations at FishNet Security. "FireMon has always played a key role in enabling us to provide our customers with an effective security and compliance tool that simplifies security, delivers ROI and allows IT security teams to accomplish more with less."
