Aladdin Inks Partnership with Blue Ridge Networks


Combined networking services and eToken strong authentication offering provide unparalleled level of security for identity and access management to government and commercial entities

CHICAGO.- Aladdin Knowledge Systems (NASDAQ: ALDN), an information security leader specializing in authentication, software DRM and content security, today announced a strategic business partnership with Chantilly, Virginia-based Blue Ridge Networks (BRN).

Through the partnership, BRN will offer its fast-growing list of government, commercial, and global customers managed secure networking services that incorporate Aladdin eToken strong authentication solutions - creating a scalable and flexible solution for unified identity and access management. The Aladdin-BRN partnership provides organizations with an unmatched solution to replace older, less-flexible identity management systems that lack integration with existing infrastructure systems. The combined solution provides ease-of-use for interoperability, remote access, user revocation and other centralized management capabilities.

“With urgent compliance mandates pressing both Federal and commercial enterprises, this partnership delivers the most secure identity and access management solution on the market today. We are proud to team with such a market leader as Aladdin, and see our partnership resulting in greater flexibility, privacy and lowered costs for our customers,” said Michael Fumai, President and CEO of Blue Ridge Networks.

Enterprises deploying the Aladdin-Blue Ridge Networks offerings will be able to offer one of the easiest-to-use and administer two-factor authentication solutions available, as well as providing an easy upgrade path to full HSPD-12 compliance. Aladdin’s proven eToken offering is being augmented by BRN’s X.509 compliant products that have been tested in some of the most demanding, mission-critical environments in the world, with a record of impenetrability. No longer do users have to make costly investments in infrastructure to deploy a comprehensive application which can scale to thousands of users. The resulting benefit to organizations is a highly secure, low-cost, integrated solution that can plug in and deliver rapid benefit.

“We are pleased to be delivering such an exciting offering with a partner like Blue Ridge Networks that is known for their very high-security networking solutions,” said Phil Pavay, vice president of global business development for Aladdin Knowledge Systems.“Deployed in some of the most sensitive areas of the government, these solutions, now complemented with the eToken technology for strong authentication, PKI, security management, and even physical access control, address a large and growing market for unified access control in government and commercial organizations. The adoption of this joint solution in the federal government is a testament to eToken innovation and Aladdin’s dedication to continuously set the standards for the ever-changing security landscape.”

Aladdin and BRN are currently collaborating on joint marketing and field sales activity, as well as new joint solutions development, which combine Aladdin eSafe and BRN’s EdgeGuard to address customers’ growing need to deploy scalable and unified gateway and endpoint content security solutions.
