Blue Lane Passes Microsoft Interop TestBlue Lane Passes Microsoft Interop Test
Blue Lane Technologies successfully runs and evaluates protocol test cases at Microsoft's Enterprise Engineering Center
August 21, 2007
REDMOND, Wash., and CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Microsoft Corp. today announced that Blue Lane Technologies Inc. was able to successfully observe, evaluate and process a wide variety of key Microsoft® protocols such as SMB, SMB2, Kerberos Authentication and Content Indexing at Microsoft’s Enterprise Engineering Center (EEC) facilities. Microsoft’s EEC, established in Redmond, Wash., in 2002, hosted Blue Lane, and the companies jointly conducted a series of tests designed to help partners, internal business groups and customers interoperate with Microsoft protocols.
Blue Lane Technologies provides solutions that help optimize business operations with their inline patch proxy for enterprise servers. Its solution eliminates the need to hastily install patches on enterprise servers. Hundreds of servers located behind a Blue Lane appliance can have their protocol traffic patched, requiring no code or configuration changes to servers, thereby maximizing server stability and uptime. Blue Lane Technologies has licensed the Microsoft Communications Protocol Program (MCPP) protocols associated with the Proxy/Firewall Task.
In a battery of more than 3,000 tests, Blue Lane’s solution was able to demonstrate its knowledge of various Microsoft protocols and prove its ability to accurately process them and ensure that the network server traffic was acceptable with no false positives.
“We are very pleased with the openness and cooperation of Microsoft in both inviting us into their labs and subjecting our solution to some of the most rigorous testing offered by any vendor for third-party solutions,” said Allwyn Sequeira, senior vice president at Blue Lane. “Microsoft has clearly demonstrated its strategic interest in improving server security and promoting interoperability with third-party solutions. They are to be commended for this effort, which sets an admirable example for others to follow.”
