Specialty Systems, Inc. and Quipa US Partner to Deliver New Security Solution

Introducing QuipaLoop -- a More Agile and Secure Solution for Connectivity Across Networks and Devices

TOMS RIVER, NJ and OAKBROOK TERRACE, IL--(Marketwire - Dec 19, 2012) - Specialty Systems, Inc. (SSI), a leading systems integrator in the military, law enforcement, and commercial markets, and Quipa US, a software company delivering a new and revolutionary approach to secure network connectivity, today announced a Reseller Partnership to facilitate and accelerate the introduction of QuipaLoop into the markets that SSI currently serves. In particular, SSI will explore how to leverage the QuipaLoop solution in critical systems that require high availability without compromising data confidentiality and integrity.

Using technology developed in Australia and patented globally, QuipaLoop is a unique approach to network connectivity that is more agile and secure than traditional VPN technologies. It secures access to services anywhere on the network and protects data in transit across the network through Quipa's Secure Connection Broker (SCB) technology -- a proprietary, secure networking capability that segments the network into "loops" of trusted devices. Unlike a physical network, the loop is a non-addressable virtual overlay that is secured by trusted devices which self-authenticate. QuipaLoop can operate across one or many physical networks and is easily deployed on mobile devices as well as computers. QuipaLoop eliminates the security weaknesses that result from spoof-able certificate authorities common to SSL VPN or discoverable directories of IP addresses used to manage IPsec solutions.

"Increasingly we hear the cry for a simple solution that will help our corporate and government customers securely connect and collaborate despite the differences in their networks, devices, and physical locations," said Emil Kaunitz, CEO of Specialty Systems. "QuipaLoop upends the traditional model of an immovable physical perimeter circling an impenetrable organizational network -- to address our customers' reality that their operational perimeter exists wherever their people and their business devices may be. Even further, Quipa accomplishes this with authentication technology that eliminates the weaknesses that are increasingly widespread in today's VPN solutions."

"Specialty Systems has a deep and long reputation for their knowledge of systems technology and the integrity of their well-crafted solutions, especially in the military," said Tom Gensch, President, Quipa US. "We look forward to leveraging their expertise to integrate the increased security and flexibility of QuipaLoop into their systems design -- be that for collaboration between architects, engineers, and builders who frequently work on mobile devices, to facilitating the access for third-party contractors working at government or corporate sites, to streamlining the secure connections between municipal police departments and state law enforcement bureaus -- in each case ensuring that the users have secure access to only the services required."
