San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2011
OpenDNS, the world’s largest and fastest-growing provider of Internet security and DNS services that deliver a safer, faster and more intelligent Internet experience to everyone, today announced it has received Certified Partner status in Aruba Networks’ ArubaEdge Partner Program.
OpenDNS Enterprise is a new inbound and outbound security service that improves and strengthens businesses’ and organizations’ defenses against an increasingly hostile Internet. The service is chosen by globally distributed enterprises, including Fortune 50 organizations, to secure networks from malware and other Internet threats.
The ArubaEdge interoperability certification demonstrates that OpenDNS and Aruba can deliver the most robust, easiest-to-deploy-and-manage security service available. The integrated solution enables Aruba customers to deploy OpenDNS Enterprise on a single Aruba network or across thousands of such networks — all managed through the OpenDNS Web-based dashboard. The integrated solution reduces the complexity and cost associated with managing Internet access, usage and security across distributed networks, devices, employees and guests.
“We’re enthusiastic about integrating OpenDNS Enterprise with Aruba Networks’ products,” said David Ulevitch, CEO of OpenDNS. “Aruba Networks is a global leader in distributed enterprise networks, and enhancing the solution with OpenDNS’ best-in-class Internet security and DNS services is a win for Aruba customers in all verticals.”
The ArubaEdge program fosters, certifies, and promotes interoperable mobility solutions from an ecosystem of technology partners such as OpenDNS. Leveraging the Aruba Mobile Virtual Enterprise (MOVE) architecture, the ecosystem of top-tier suppliers, including OpenDNS, share a forward-looking vision of secure mobility, a commitment to customer service, and a focus on device interoperability.
“Best-in-class vendors like OpenDNS are committed to interoperability and open systems because of the benefits they bring to integrators and end users,” said Michael Tennefoss, Aruba’s Head of Strategic Partnerships. “Integrators benefit from faster installations based on validated designs. End users win because support issues are more quickly rectified when vendors work together. They’re also not locked into a single source of supply, but can instead choose the best available interoperable solution. OpenDNS offers a unique and innovative security solution that resonates with users, and we’re delighted to have them in the ArubaEdge program.”
