Certes Networks Expands Presence in Federal Government Networks with Affigent Partnership


New partnership helps meet strong demand for data protection and encryption in federal government networks

Pittsburgh, PA, August 17, 2011-Certes Networks, the leader in multi-layer encryption solutions for high performance networks, announced today that it has signed an agreement with Affigent LLC, a leading provider of technology products and solutions to federal government worldwide. Specializing in advanced information security solutions, Affigent is known for delivering seamless, scalable and secure support at every phase of the enterprise solution lifecycle.

"As the need for scalable network security continues to grow within federal agencies, Certes Networks is expanding its reach through new partnerships with key suppliers and contract holders," said Thomas Gill, CEO of Certes Networks. "Affigent provides us with a strong presence in the federal government market where they are a well-established and trusted partner."

With this partnership, Certes Networks' multi-layer encryption solutions are now available as part of the Affigent services portfolio. This offering enables security-sensitive clients to meet compliance and data protection requirements while retaining the high-quality service and support they have come to trust from Affigent.

Certes Networks' innovative policy and key management solution and multi-layer, wire-speed encryption appliances can secure any network without impacting the underlying infrastructure or application performance. This groundbreaking solution eliminates all of the tradeoffs that have traditionally accompanied network encryption, and allows organizations to follow the best practice of separating security and infrastructure management roles. The solution architecture also enables secure cloud migrations, allowing companies to adopt cloud networking at their own pace.

In order to meet the full range of deployment preferences, the Certes Networks solution will be offered both as a customer owned solution and as a managed Encryption as a Service (EaaS) offering.
