Apani is the preeminent provider of identity-aware network solutions for large enterprises, protecting an organisation’s internal network and business-critical data from intruders.
Apani EpiForce, the company’s flagship product, allows an organisation to create an identity-aware network that protects data and network communications by isolating users, servers, clients and mission-critical data into security zones, regardless of system platform or physical location. EpiForce uses the identity of the user to control access to security zones and selectively encrypt traffic between users and machines on the network.
EpiForce provides flexibility and efficiency not available with traditional network security solutions. Based on software, EpiForce is a distributed, centrally-managed solution that is transparent to users, applications and infrastructure – making it quicker to deploy and less costly to manage than any hardware-centric solution. Policy enforced by EpiForce is persistent, enabling protected resources to be relocated without compromising security.
Working to provide an evolutionary improvement in efficiency, flexibility, manageability and total costs of ownership, Apani technology is used by many of the largest companies in the world.
Based in Southern California, with European offices in London, England, Apani was founded in 2003 and is privately held. More information about the company may be found at www.apani.com.
