IBM and Novell Join VPNet Technologies' VPNabled Program; Ensures Interoperability of the Leading Firewall and Networking Solutions with VPNware Systems.

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 6, 1999--

VPNet Technologies, Inc. today announced the addition of IBM and Novell to the Company's VPNabled(TM) Partner Program.

As the latest partners in this program, which includes leading hardware vendors and service providers such as Hewlett-Packard, Concentric Network, and AT&T CERFnet, each company's products and services have been thoroughly tested and certified for compatibility with VPNet's IPSec-based VPNware(TM) systems. Upon certification, VPNabled partners are entitled to brand their products and services with the VPNabled logo, thereby assuring user organizations that their applications will work seamlessly over a secure VPN infrastructure.

"The addition of these powerhouse companies to our VPNabled Program adds another foundation block to the global adoption of virtual private networks," said R. Michael Allen, President and CEO at VPNet. "Along with our leading position in the VPN server market and partnering with the top network service providers, VPNet continues to certify compatibility of real-world solutions that work seamlessly with our VPNware products," Allen continued.

"VPNet's VPNware products and IBM's FirstSecure Boundary Server and Firewall technology represent a complementary high-security and highly scalable solution. The combination of the Boundary Server's leading edge firewall and content filtering capabilities paired with VPNware's IPSec-based virtual private networks will deliver proven and secure cost-effective e-business solutions," said Julie Roberson, product manager, firewall and boundary server, IBM.

"With the acceleration in e-business being driven by virtual private networks, certified compatibility with VPNet's products and VPNet's `Yes, Tested & Approved' compatibility with Novell products enhances the appeal of both companies' products to the corporate enterprise," said Carleton Watkins, director of Novell's DeveloperNet Labs.

Benefits of Being VPNabled

By becoming certified VPNabled Partners, IBM and Novell can further meet their customers' needs by enabling their applications to be used with complete security -- and without modification -- over the Internet or any other public IP network in conjunction with VPNware systems. The companies may brand their products with the VPNabled logo as proof of compatibility, assuring network service providers and user organizations that their applications will work over a secure VPN infrastructure.

VPNet tests products and services from vendors that wish to participate in the VPNabled Program for compatibility with VPNware Systems, which include hardware and software products that perform IPSec-compliant encryption, authentication, key management, compression, and other services such as network address translation.
