Egenera Announces Technology Alliance with Xceedium; Complementary Solutions Improve Security, Lower Costs for Enterprise Customers.
MARLBORO,Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 23, 2004
Egenera Inc., the leader in utility computing, today announced a technology alliance with Xceedium, a world leader in SSL VPN+ secure remote access and management. Xceedium's flagship product, the Xio UAG Universal Access Gateway, has been tested by Egenera and validated for use with the Egenera(TM) BladeFrame(R) system. As a result, Xceedium has earned membership in Egenera's Accelerate Alliance Program, and Egenera has joined the Xceedium Partner Program.
Xio UAG, the extensible in-band and out-of-band Universal Access Gateway, is the world's first All-in-One SSL VPN+ Remote Access Management solution. It is a versatile and powerful network appliance offering users unprecedented flexibility and capability in accessing company systems and network devices from remote locations. Meeting the needs of system and network administrators, as well as business end-users, the product offers a comprehensive solution for controlled, remote access to and management of critical IT infrastructure from anywhere, at any time.
Xio UAG serves as a secure front end to the BladeFrame system, further centralizing access to management and giving system administrators and application-support teams both more granular and a wider spectrum of entry into the Egenera platform. The Xceedium solution immediately integrates into the BladeFrame via SSH and via Egenera PAN Manager(TM) software's out-of-band, Web-based management utility. All access is provided via 128-bit encryption. Xio UAG's SSL VPN+ technology enables Egenera customers to further strengthen remote access to, and perimeter security around, their BladeFrame systems.
"We are very pleased to be working with Egenera," said Sam Balooch, CEO, Xceedium. "Their BladeFrame system and our Xio UAG SSL VPN+ appliance are ideally suited for world-class customers running mission-critical applications across far-flung operations. Both products reduce complexity, simplify management and lower costs while optimizing security--a win-win scenario few solutions can offer. Moreover, each company is enjoying excellent traction in targeted industries, making our go-to-market strategies highly compatible."
"Both Xio UAG and the BladeFrame are third-generation technologies which surpass the capabilities of incumbent, legacy solutions," noted Vern Brownell, founder and chief technology officer, Egenera. "Our BladeFrame system remains the only commercially available platform that enables customers to implement utility computing. Likewise, Xio UAG gives multi-site enterprises a proven alternative to expensive IPSec VPN solutions for enabling secure remote access. We look forward to continued collaboration and to bringing the benefits of our respective technologies to mutual customers."
