Agreement With HCL Infosystems Consolidates position as


India’s leading SSL VPN vendor



PortWise, Europe’s leading SSL VPN vendor has further cemented its global reach with the announcement of an OEM agreement with India's premier information enabling and integration company, HCL Infosystems. Under the terms of the agreement, HCL Infosystems will incorporate PortWise’s software suite – which provides totally secure access for all types of users from multiple channels and devices – into its hardware range. This announcement consolidates PortWise’s position as India’s leading SSL VPN vendor, and further demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment to develop India as a hub for its Asia-Pacific operations.


The PortWise product suite provides companies with secure remote access to corporate applications using the Internet and the latest security standards. This type of access significantly improves enterprise efficiency and productivity – without the limitations and expense associated with other access technologies—and dramatically lowers administrative requirements. The PortWise product suite, shipped as both software and security appliance, is widely recognised as the leading offering in terms of its ability to address the issues facing the next generation of SSL VPNs – scalability and policy management.

“We pride ourselves on delivering world-class information technology solutions and services to our customers, and are forever setting new standards for IT throughout the industry,” said George Paul, Vice-President Marketing, HCL Infosystems. “In keeping with that, we wanted to be the first company to introduce this pioneering technology to India. The agreement with PortWise has enabled us to enhance our product offering: we now have the ability to provide the finest security solutions to meet the diverse remote access demands of our enterprise customers across the country.”

Starting immediately, HCL InfoSystems will integrate PortWise’s primary mobile security solutions into its products: PortWise mID (mobile authentication) and PortWise mVPN (mobile secure access) and PortWise mVPN Management Server (mobile authorisation).

The HCL announcement follows an earlier agreement between PortWise and Select Technologies in June 2003. Under the terms of the agreement, Select Technologies now distributes the company’s product suite throughout India. Select Technologies is one of India’s fastest growing technology distributors, and is renowned throughout India as a provider of innovative networking, network security, and storage products and services.


“We are very happy to have HCL Infosystems join the PortWise family of OEM partners,” said Kaushik Thakkar, Co-Founder and Vice President Strategic Development for PortWise. “India remains a vast market for IT hardware and services, and HCL is a leader throughout that country. Our strategic partnership moves us one step closer to making our technology available to corporate enterprises on a global basis.”

The company was rated the number one brand in the IDC India- Dataquest Customer Satisfaction audit 2004.
