Pittsburgh, PA, August 4, 2011 - Certes Networks, the leader in multi-layer encryption solutions for high performance networks, announced today that it has signed an agreement with Channel Systems specializing in network security technology and solutions. Channel Systems is known for delivering leading-edge network, security, compliance and risk management products and services to corporate, government and education markets in the United States.

"While increased network security is becoming a priority in virtually all markets, many companies are turning to trusted VARS and Distributors to meet their security needs," Thomas Gill, CEO of Certes Networks. "Our partnership with Channel Systems gives our industry leading security solution broader coverage into the market while providing their customers with the most trusted advanced security solutions."

"We are extremely excited to announce our partnership with Certes Networks," said Rick Geary, President of Channel Systems.

Certes Networks' innovative policy and key management solution and their 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.
