TELUS Selects Automated Policy-Based Compliance Management Solution from Intelliden.

Intelliden Introduces Industry's Most Advanced and Scalable Compliance Management Solution for Complex, Multi-vendor Network Environments

MENLO PARK, Calif. -- Intelliden, Inc., a leading provider of Intelligent Networking solutions that enable organizations to control, manage and scale their networks, announced today that TELUS is the first telecommunications service provider to select its new automated Policy-Based Compliance Management solution for increasingly complex, large-scale heterogeneous network environments. TELUS, an $8.5-billion Canadian telecommunications service provider, will use the system together with the widely-deployed Intelliden R-Series platform. Combined, the technologies will make TELUS the first firm in the world able to automatically detect and correct out-of-compliance network conditions, giving it a new level of control and predictability in complex networks.

"Network compliance for IP services is an industry challenge. The distributed nature of IP Networks has created new problems for providers to resolve, and the automation of that function is key to sustainable success," said Ibrahim Gedeon, chief technology officer of TELUS. "Using Intelliden Policy-Based Compliance Management Solution together with the Intelliden R-Series platform will allow TELUS to automate compliance verification and correction of our mission critical IP networks and services. The Intelliden solutions will ensure the highest quality of service and availability for our customers, while improving operational efficiency and network security."

"TELUS is again demonstrating its long-standing commitment to providing its clients the most reliable communications network possible," said Alan Black, president and CEO of Intelliden. "Our partnership meeting the challenge of increasing network complexity will help prevent network failures that can directly impact business profitability. Intelliden's Policy-Based Compliance Management solution uniquely meets this market need by enabling network operators to manage network compliance against a virtually unlimited number of pre-defined policies and network devices. Our solution encompasses policy definition, automatic detection and reporting of out-of-compliance conditions. Further, unlike script-based compliance solutions, the Intelliden solution automates detection and correction of out-of-compliance conditions across either homogenous or multi-vendor networks."

The Intelliden Policy-Based Compliance Management solution dynamically automates many of the most challenging processes associated with managing large scale, multi-vendor network environments. The integrated solution combines the functions of policy definition, policy validation, violation reporting, and violation resolution into a single, smoothly operating application. The advanced solution utilizes a declarative approach with an easy-to-use graphical interface that speeds up and simplifies the creation of new compliance policies, eliminating the need for time-consuming, custom scripting. The automation of end-to-end network compliance lowers the cost of compliance, reduces network security threats, and, most importantly, provides organizations with superior levels of control over their network.

The Intelliden Policy-Based Compliance Management solution has many unique and advanced features:

* Patented 'modeling approach' - Intelliden's solution incorporates a patented methodology for transforming multi-vendor device configurations into a standardized network representation combined with powerful workflow engine and use friendly platform for dynamic network device management.

* Dynamic Compliance Management - The solution provides unparalleled flexibility for current and future compliance management regardless of network size and complexity. Most traditional compliance solutions use hard-coded scripts that need to be written or revised when new services or network devices are added.

* Exception Management - At times, temporary policy violations are necessary in a dynamic network, for example, to deploy new devices, or to roll out new configurations prior to revising the configuration policy. The Intelliden solution enables the user to temporarily operate in violation of network policy and return the network to a compliant state at a designated time. A compliance management solution must be able to support these approved violations in order to accurately reflect the compliance status of the network.

* Sophisticated Reporting - Intelliden Compliance Management Solution generates reports with various levels of detail depending on the need of the end-user. Information can be presented a various aggregation levels to provide executive level dashboards as well as reports containing detailed configuration information. Detailed historical compliance information is available to analyze compliance trends.

* Future-Proof Capabilities - Intelliden uses its in-depth and dynamic knowledge of logical and physical device capabilities to provide the user with unmatched flexibility to define unlimited numbers of policies on any of these capabilities and in context of these capabilities. Since no scripts or hard-coded logic are used to define policies and corrective actions, the solution can easily support new compliance scenarios as requirements change with the introduction of new devices and services.

In addition to unique features, Intelliden Policy-Based Compliance Management solutions offer standard capabilities, such as role-based permissions, ad-hoc reports, standard regulatory reports, support for complex policies, automatic audits, multi-level workflows, advanced scheduling of reports and audits, etc. All Intelliden solutions are built on the most advanced service oriented architecture for greater flexibility and easier integration with business processes.
