Partnership network enables full IT security integration

Alcatel-Lucent : 09 April, 2008  (Company News)
OmiAccess 2500 continues to provide extended IT security management through extended vendor alliances enabling improved integration.
The Alcatel-Lucent commitment to open architecture continues to create more value for enterprises as new companies join the OmniAccess 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian (NLG) partner network. Invented by Bell Labs and incubated by Alcatel-Lucent Ventures, the OmniAccess 3500 NLG makes use of 3G networks to allow enterprises to overcome the "mobile blind spot" by managing their laptops anywhere, anytime, and even when the laptop is turned off. Secure, always-on, fully-integrated third party applications and features offer enterprises a choice of best-of-breed solutions along with visibility and control.

- Phoenix Technologies provides encryption and recovery and authentication services for the OmniAccess 3500 through its FailSafe theft deterrence and SecureCore Pre-Boot Authentication (PBA) services.
- Sierra Wireless was selected by Alcatel-Lucent to provide the modems for the OmniAccess 3500 NLG CDMA cards, which are currently sold by Sprint under the Sprint Secure Laptop Guardian solution. The NLG is currently available to enterprises through Sprint as the SprintSecure Laptop Guardian. Sprint was the first carrier in the United States to make the service generally available. Sierra is also providing HSPA modems for the new OmniAccess 3500 NLG HSPA solution.
- Utimaco Safeware AG is integrating its SafeGuard Enterprise data security solution with OmniAccess 3500 NLG to enable policy configuration and administration for device and data protection, as well as pre-boot authentication.
- QuickSec VPN software from SafeNet has been integrated into the OmniAccess 3500 to enable optimised always-on VPN security features and seamless roaming regardless of connection type.

"Our demonstrated commitment to openness allows multiple patch management, backup/restore and equipment vendors to integrate their applications into the OmniAccess 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian to better meet specialised business needs," said Michel Emelianoff, vice president of Alcatel-Lucent's Enterprise security activities. "Today and tomorrow, IT departments are benefiting from these types of partnerships to secure the evolving mobile workforce."

Key benefits provided by the Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess 3500 NLG and its partner network include: 100% patch management enabling delivery of software updates to laptops even when turned off; "remote kill" deletion of encryption keys and certificates to secure lost or stolen laptops; off hours backup and restore even for laptops that are turned off; 24/7 asset and configuration management control over all device configurations; two-factor authentication eliminating the need for additional authentication devices by using the NLG as a remotely controlled SmartCard; and laptop location information to locate lost or stolen laptops or apply policies based on laptop location.

By working with its partners across its enterprise portfolio, Alcatel-Lucent provides customers with a rich, reliable set of certified solution options. Depending upon the relationship, partners may also undertake joint marketing, reselling and development projects with Alcatel-Lucent.
