Alcatel-Lucent Nonstop Laptop Guardian selected for Information Security™ magazine and™ 2008 Readers’ Choice Awards


Revolutionary laptop security and management product receives bronze award for emerging technology

RSA Conference, San Francisco, April 2008 — Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) has again been recognized for its innovative and revolutionary laptop security, management product, the OmniAccess 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian (NLG). The NLG received industry recognition as an emerging technology in the Information Security ™ magazine 2008 Readers’ Choice Awards.

The awards are based on editors who selectthree innovative technologies that promise to address a critical security need for the enterprise or small to medium-sized business. According to the editors, “The problem of maintaining the security posture of laptops that are beyond the reach of corporate IT for days, weeks or months continues to bedevil enterprises. That’s why the impressive technology behind Alcatel-Lucent’s OmniAccess 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian is so attractive, and why it earned the bronze award.”

The OmniAccess 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian (NLG), invented by Bell Labs and incubated by Alcatel-Lucent Ventures, leverages 3G/CDMA/W-CDMA networks to allow enterprises to overcome the “mobile blind spot” by managing their laptops anywhere, any time, even when the laptop is turned off. Secure, always-on, fully-integrated third party applications and features offer enterprises a choice of best-of-breed solutions along with visibility and control.

The always-on solution includes a PCMCIA 3G card that has a processor, flash memory and a rechargeable battery that draws power from the laptop. It features strong 2nd factor authentication and single sign-on through Active Directory integration. It integrates with 3rd party disk encryption solutions – enabling an enterprise IT manager to remotely secure data when a laptop is lost or stolen and supports 3DES and AES for the embedded always on VPN.

Presented by the editors of Information Security™ magazine and™, the award selection process was extensive including in-depth discussions and interviews between TechTarget editors, security technology experts, and the TechTarget User Advisory board - which is comprised of chief security officers from major US corporations - to define the appropriate categories and criteria to encompass the most critical security technologies and functionality. TechTarget then asks more than 1,600 information security executives and managers to assess and rate products they deploy within their organizations from a listing of more than 360 products. Based on their cumulative responses the judging panel selects Gold, Silver, and Bronze award winners within the product categories.
