Permeo Introduces Full Support for Microsoft® Office Live Communications Server 2003

    DALLAS, TX (ots) - Permeo Allows Organizations to Extend Industry-Leading Collaborative Application to Remote Employees, Partners, Customers, and Other Third Parties Without Any Additional Client Side Software

    Permeo Technologies, the Application Security Gateway market leader with more than 30 percent of the Global 100 as customers, today announces support for Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2003, Microsoft's new enterprise real-time communications server. Through support of Live Communications Server, Permeo Application Security Gateway (Permeo ASG) v5 allows organizations to extend secure remote access to traveling and telecommuting employees, partners, suppliers, and other third parties. Enabling Live Communications Server to extend beyond the LAN to the WAN, Permeo ASG allows organizations to maximize the productivity benefits and return on investment from the latest and most advanced collaborative service.

    With more than 300 customers worldwide, Permeo long has been recognized for providing a flexible, high-performance application security gateway to enable secure SSL-encrypted remote application access from any public or private network. With Permeo ASG deployed in an organization's DMZ, remote employees, partners, and customers can have native access to business critical enterprise applications without requiring any client-side software and without deploying network-layer solutions, such as IPSec VPNs. For enterprises rolling out Microsoft's Live Communications Server, providing anytime anywhere access to instant messaging, white boarding, video conferencing and other collaborative capabilities, will be critical as these services often are most useful when users are distributed geographically and un-tethered from the LAN. Permeo ASG now allows SSL-encrypted secure access to all of the features of Live Communications Server without connecting either locally or with an IPSec VPN to the corporate network.

    "Microsoft Office Live Communications Server and Permeo Application Security Gateway together provide an enterprise-grade collaboration solution for secure remote access," said Taylor Collyer, director of marketing for Live Communications Server at Microsoft. "We're excited to have Permeo as a partner enabling our enterprise customers to extend native access to Live Communications Server to traveling and remote users."

    Benefits of the Permeo-enabled collaboration solution include:

    --  Secure remote access from any network, including from behind
            third-party firewalls
    --  Access control by user and/or group
    --  Native application user experience -- no "webified" or    
          limited- functionality applications
    --  No client-side software to install on the user's device
    --  No network layer connections and no open and vulnerable
          firewall ports
    --  User-friendly installation, configuration and administration
    --  Maximized ROI for Live Communications Server as no user is
          ever out-of-reach      

    "Businesses are taking great advantage of collaborative applications to drive business effectiveness while measurably reducing costs. Microsoft Office Live Communications Server 2003 has jumped to the front in providing a robust, enterprise-oriented collaborative solution that has ignited the market," commented Andrew Morbitzer, vice president of marketing with Permeo Technologies. "Permeo is excited to be a partner with Microsoft and our early customer engagements show that our solution combination will make a tremendous competitive difference for companies who need to bring together their customers, partners and employees."

    About Permeo Application Security Gateway

    Many CIOs and network security managers face a common problem today: how to enable their businesses to have access to the applications they need without undermining network security. Because traditional network security products are designed to limit access to the network, any increases in access to applications for employees, partners, and customers result in a corresponding decrease in network security. Permeo Application Gateway provides the ideal solution which allows an enterprise to extend the applications to the users who need them irrespective of what network they are on and without compromising network security.

    About Permeo Technologies

    Enabling secure access to any application through any firewall and across any network, Permeo Technologies is the world leader in Application Security Gateways with over 300 global customers and more than 30 percent of the Global 100. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Permeo was founded in June 2001 as a privately held spin-off from NEC, Inc. For more product information please contact Permeo at 866.4PERMEO, or
