Certes Networks and Digiware Partner to Provide High Performance Network Encryption throughout Latin America


Newly announced partnership matches industry leading security solution with the region’s recognized managed security provider leader

Pittsburgh, PA, December 06, 2011- Certes Networks, the leader in multi-layer encryption solutions for high performance networks, announced today that it has partnered with Columbia's Digiware to provide high performance managed network encryption solutions throughout the Latin America region.

Digiware, which has specialized in information security solutions for more than fifteen years, was recently awarded Frost & Sullivan's Andean Region 2011 Growth Leadership Award in the Managed Security Services Market. This partnership will add Certes Networks' TrustNet solution, recently nominated as a finalist for SC Magazine's 2011 IPsec VPN Product of the Year, to Digiware's managed services portfolio.

"Many of our customers who are seeking network security solutions are concerned about the potential tradeoffs that IPsec encryption solutions typically impose", said Andres Galindo, Business Development and Strategic Alliances Director for Digiware. "The addition of Certes Networks TrustNet solution will allow us to meet the security and compliance needs of our customers without compromising their network's performance or reliability."

Certes Networks' innovative policy and key management solution and multi-layer, wire-speed encryption appliances can secure any network as a transparent overlay. 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 secure cloud networking at their own pace.

"Our partnership with Digiware is a great match of both focus and philosophy," said Thomas Gill, CEO of Certes Networks. "While we are excited about the prospects of this partnership we believe the real winners will be our shared customers in the region who will benefit from Digiware's industry recognized service delivery capability."

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 for clients looking to secure traffic at Layer 2, Layer 3 and Layer 4 across their networks or cloud infrastructures.
