Paris, August 2008 – Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) today announced that its OmniAccess 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian was named as a bronze medal winner of the “2008 Editor’s Best Awards” in the Security category by Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro magazine.

“The 2008 Editor’s Best Awards utilize our editors’ product knowledge and subject matter expertise to identify exceptional products that benefit the Windows IT Pro and SQL Server Magazine reader communities,” said Jeff Lewis, group publisher. “Our editors selected winners based on the product’s strategic importance to the market, its competitive advantages and its value to the customer.” “Our editors are tough, in-the-trenches critics,” Lewis continued. “They demand solid value and performance from the products they select. Editor’s Best Award winners can feel proud that the products and services they developed have earned the respect and recognition of the Windows IT Pro and SQL Server Magazineeditorial staff.”

Alcatel-Lucent’s OmniAccess 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian (NLG), invented by Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs and commercialized by Alcatel-Lucent Ventures, offers enterprises unprecedented visibility, control and security for remote laptops regardless of power status. Nonstop Laptop Guardian is a 3G-based PCMCIA card with its own battery, memory, processor, OS, and software – a “mini computer” operating within the laptop. In case of theft, IT departments can back up and delete laptop data, dramatically reducing company risk and liability, while also offering simplified and speedy routine upgrades and backups by allowing IT departments unassisted 24x7 access to remote laptops.

According to Michel Emelianoff, Vice President for Alcatel-Lucent’s Enterprise security solutions at Alcatel-Lucent, “The OmniAccess 3500 NLG leverages 3G 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.”
