This partnership further manifests our unconditional commitment to meet our customer's network security needs and expectations also in the largest and most critical service offerings", said Ilkka Hiidenheimo, CEO of Stonesoft Corporation.

The first order related to the partnership has already been delivered to the Algerian Ministry of Healthcare in June 2008. The order, at the value of more than EUR 700,000 was related to the second phase of a project through which the Ministry of Healthcare will modernise its network. "This important project allows the interconnection of more than 550 remote sites around the national territory", highlights Moussa Benhamadi.

I believe Algerian companies will truly benefit from our cooperation with Algeria Telecom and that this will also further strengthen our position with respect to other countries in this market."
