AEP, Lockdown Partner

Lockdown Networks and AEP Networks announced they have entered into a technology licensing, co-development and marketing partnership

SEATTLE -- Lockdown Networks® and AEP Networks today announced they have entered into a technology licensing, co-development and marketing partnership which will integrate Lockdown’s flagship Network Access Control (NAC) solution, Lockdown Enforcer™, into AEP’s Policy Networking security solutions.

Under the terms of the agreement, Lockdown and AEP will enhance Lockdown’s iNAC™ integration capability to enable use of the Lockdown Enforcer technology to provide endpoint health-check, quarantine and remediation capabilities that work with the AEP Netilla Security Platform (NSP) SSL VPN. The resulting product offering will enable AEP’s installed base of SSL VPN customers to enhance existing secure remote access implementations while solving branch, conference room, guest and partner access “pain points” in a consistent fashion. The joint solution will be available through AEP channel partners.

With seamless security integration from the network through application layers, the joint AEP Networks-Lockdown Networks solution will overcome one of the trickiest security challenges companies face today: providing a uniform approach to ensuring policy-based access, from the edge to the core, throughout the enterprise, regardless of the technology (i.e., remote access via SSL VPN, branch office access via IPSec VPN, guest or conference room access via wireless or wired LAN).

Today, companies work with multiple vendors to deploy point-security solutions that address individual layers of the network stack. This creates time-consuming and arduous implementation and management overhead. By integrating the layers of security, AEP Networks customers will have a one-source shop for total network security.

“The integration of Lockdown’s NAC technology with AEP application access solutions is a natural idea, and delivers exactly what the market has been clamoring for – an integrated approach to addressing enterprise network security needs,” said Brett Helsel, CEO at Lockdown Networks. “We believe AEP’s strong global distribution, sales and support network and excellent portfolio of products adds major value to customers looking for enterprise-class network access control solutions.”
