ALU to OEM LANShield

ConSentry announced an OEM agreement with Alcatel-Lucent for its LANShield Switch and LANShield Controller platforms

MILPITAS, Calif. -- ConSentry Networks, a leading provider of secure LAN solutions, today announced a multi-year worldwide Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) agreement with Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) for its award-winning LANShield™ Switch and LANShield Controller platforms as well as its InSight™ Command Center. Under the terms of the agreement, Alcatel-Lucent will market the ConSentry products under the OmniAccess SafeGuard brand across the global Alcatel-Lucent enterprise market beginning in March 2007.

Supporting both pre-admission and post-admission controls, the ConSentry LANShield family provides enterprises with a proven and affordable solution for controlling access to resources and applications on the LAN. Since introducing its Controller platform in September 2005 and Switch platform in May 2006, ConSentry has deployed LANShield systems capable of controlling more than a half-million end users. With today’s agreement, ConSentry adds the power and breadth of the Alcatel-Lucent sales, service, and support teams to capitalize on that strong momentum and extend its leadership position.

“The ConSentry platform is unique in its ability to provide both comprehensive threat control and identity-based access control, including the ability to provide per-application enforcement. We believe the all-in-one platform provides strong differentiation for security managers looking to increase overall security and improve visibility in a simple, cost-effective way,” said Tom Burns, head of Alcatel-Lucent enterprise solutions activities.
