NEVIS NETWORKS ROLLS OUT GLOBAL CHANNEL PARTNER PROGRAM

Program Expands Reseller Opportunities to Address Growing Demand for Identity-Based Policy Enforcement Solutions

Mountain View, Calif. – June 4, 2007 – Nevis Networks, a market leader in identity-based policy enforcement solutions that secure network resources, today announced a new global channel partner program, which will scale the company’s sales, marketing, customer service and technical support capabilities. The new program—rolled out in response to strong demand for its Nevis LANenforcer family of products—provides Nevis partners with high margin and best-in-class enterprise security systems that can grow revenue opportunities through new systems integration, professional services and consulting solutions.

“As they attempt to sort out the hype surrounding ‘NAC,’ our customers are demanding solutions that can easily enforce security policies that they define to protect sensitive network resources,” said Joe Luciano, CEO, AccessIT Group, headquartered in King Of Prussia, PA. “This is why Nevis is such an attractive vendor to partner with. They’ve consolidated the key ingredients needed to secure network resources—from pre- and post-connect user access control and identity-based policy enforcement, to threat control and visibility into user activity that can be correlated on the fly—all into a single appliance. Their technology lead in the market is significant and we look forward to capitalizing on this partnership.” 

Highly Differentiated Technology
Nevis’ highly differentiated LANenforcer solutions provide enterprises with a four-fold ability to comprehensively address the dissolving network perimeter:

  • Mitigate the risk from endpoint vulnerabilities.
  • Understand who is accessing the network and provide total control over which network resources they are permitted to access.
  • Protect from zero-day malware and the broad spectrum of malicious LAN attacks.
  • Reduce the overall costs of troubleshooting, incident resolution and auditing on the network that is completely transparent to end users.
  • Integrate easily with existing network, policy and management infrastructures.

Comprehensive Discounts and Support
The new channel partner initiative includes a Certified Partner program that minimizes investments in training and resources, and a Premier Partner program, which provides maximum margin discounts. Three levels of global support are available, including access to the 24×7 Nevis Technical Assistance Center (NTAC), self-service tools, knowledgebase, product and technical documentation and other relevant information to fully support Nevis’ LANenforcer product family. In parallel, Nevis is rolling out a reseller certification program which verifies engineers across a variety of areas within networking and security. Qualified channel partners receive a number of discounts including access to Nevis Labs research services, maintenance and support, demo units, upgrades and training. Additional incentives include joint marketing activities, lead sharing, event support and Nevis pre-sales support. Technical and marketing updates are available via e-mail, quarterly mailings, and partner events. “Our new channel program will enable our worldwide partners to penetrate existing and new accounts and build new relationships that will provide significant revenue opportunities,” said Shane Buckley, COO with Nevis Networks. “We’re talking about a worldwide market opportunity forecast by Infonetics to reach $3.9B by 2008.” For additional information and details on the Nevis Networks Partner Program please call 1-650-254-2500 or e-mail partners@nevisnetworks.com.
