TrustWorks and Tadpole Partner To Deliver Simple, More Effective Network Security Appliance For Remote Offices Monday 4 March 2002 PDF Print New Security Appliance Enables Rapid Deployment of Secure Remote Office VPN And Delivers Fast ROI TrustWorks Systems B.V. (TWS), a provider of advanced network security management software, and Tadpole (LSE:TAD), the mobile computing and network infrastructure developer and vendor, today jointly announced a business and technology alliance aimed at providing remote, multi-location enterprises with a simplified and more effective network security management capability. Focusing on Tadpole’s portable Solarisä product range, TrustWorks Trusted Gate software will be installed on the Solaris Server appliance. When coupled with TrustWorks Trusted Global Security Manager, organisations will be able to centrally manage and easily configure network security devices at satellite locations. The centralised management function of the bundled appliance delivers a fast return on investment. It enhances network security by automatically enforcing new or updated business-critical security policies. This eliminates the time-wasting and costly practice of manual updates and ensures that only the most up-to-date security policies are employed. The TrustWorks/Tadpole appliance becomes the perfect solution for large enterprises with remote office locations to enforce dynamic security policy changes and maintain control of remote locations. "Our partnership with Tadpole is the first of many steps in providing remote offices with a highly scalable and reliable device that meets the needs of satellite offices," said Joel Silberman, vice president of business development at TrustWorks. "By establishing this relationship with Tadpole, the bundled product plugs a gap in the marketplace for an easy to manage, Solaris based security device." The appliance is highly portable. Coupled with TrustWorks' security framework, it breaks new ground in the speed of configuration and deployment of a reliable, consistent security policy. David Humphreys, director of strategic alliances for Tadpole's appliance programme, comments, "Clearly, we are delighted to partner with TrustWorks to deliver such a cost effective, reliable and much-needed industry security solution. We look forward to further integration of our complementary, value-add products." The appliance device is available for immediate delivery.
