Company Executive Addresses Delegates on the Considerations of Deploying Security in Mixed Networks of Virtual and Physical Servers

London, October 1, 2008 – Apani, the preeminent provider of cross-platform server isolation solutions for large enterprises, today announces that it will participate in VM08, the UK’s first virtualisation expo event, taking place at Earls Court, London, on October 1-2, 2008.

Apani’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Ryan Malone, will be one of the experts participating in the seminar programme, which is designed to provide delegates with an overview of solutions, tools and in particular a roadmap to implementing these into an organisation’s strategy. Malone’s presentation, “Deploying Security in a Mixed Physical/Virtual Data Centre”, will be held in the Virtualisation Management Theatre on Wednesday, 1 October 2008 between 1:50 PM - 2:20 PM.

Malone comments, “I am delighted to be visiting the UK and meeting with organisations to introduce Apani and the EpiForce VM solution. The Apani presentation will highlight the fact that although the operational and economic benefits of server virtualisation are well-documented, securing virtualised data centres may often result in a trade-off between realising these benefits and deploying strong security. It will also outline the benefits of deploying cross-platform virtual security to mixed physical and virtual data centres and offer advice on important criteria when evaluating new solutions.” Malone adds, “Apani is looking forward to meeting with VM08 delegates to discuss recommendations and best practices for selecting a solution that is easy to use and cost-effective to implement and manage. The presentation will introduce an alternative to the silo approach that is currently taken to securing most data centres today”.

Visitors to the expo can also visit the Apani stand, number 836, to discuss EpiForce VM, the industry’s first single platform for protecting virtual and physical networks. Apani® EpiForce® VM helps large companies accelerate adoption of VMware ESX Server by securing both virtual machines (VMs) and physical servers and endpoints from a single platform. It is a software-based, cross-platform server isolation solution that provides two critical security services – logical security zoning and policy-based encryption of data in motion. It offers a software-based alternative to using network firewalls and VLANs for enterprise level security inside the corporate network. EpiForce eliminates much of the costs associated with securing the corporate network, while introducing a significantly higher level of flexibility and efficiency to security administrators.

VM08, the UK's first virtualisation expo, is an Imago event designed for end user CIOs and IT departments to network with experts, learn through education sessions and share knowledge. The event runs alongside IP08, which has established itself as Europe's leading IP and Convergence event. Together the events will address key virtualisation and convergence technologies, solutions, issues and futures.

Malone, a well-respected industry-veteran with over 15 years of marketing and business development expertise, will be spending both days at the London expo. He was instrumental in the recent launch of EpiForce VM. EpiForce VM is part of Apani’s comprehensive enterprise security solutions suite and leverages the latest platform of the company’s flagship product EpiForce 2.5.

Apani recently announced a virtual appliance free trial version of EpiForce VM. The trial can be accessed from the Apani website at Apani will also be taking registrations for the downloadable free trial at VM08 on their stand 836.
