New partnership helps meet strong demand for data protection and encryption in the Middle East

Pittsburgh, PA, August 10, 2011-Certes Networks, the leader in multi-layer encryption solutions for high performance networks, announced today that it has signed a partnership agreement with Oxygen Middle East, a security VAD headquartered in Dubai, UAE. Oxygen is known for delivering highly innovative and visionary security solutions that meet the growing demand in the Middle East.

"The need for scalable network security continues to grow worldwide and we continue to expand our reach into global markets through new partnerships with established regional VARs and Distributors, such as Oxygen Middle East," Thomas Gill, CEO of Certes Networks. "Oxygen provides us with a strong presence in the Middle East and is a well-established and trusted partner."

With this partnership, Certes Networks' multi-layer encryption solutions are now available as part of the Oxygen products and 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 Oxygen.

"Our partnership with Certes Networks will help organizations in the region to improve security, decrease risk, and reduce the cost of compliance with data privacy regulations. The compelling solution will be highly valued by the clients, as it requires no changes to existing network, and delivers high performance and secure connectivity to critical infrastructures in the branch office, data center or in the cloud," said Fuad Mohammed, General Manager, Oxygen ME.

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.
