We have already inked a number of deals through this relationship, and it's a privilege to work with a global leader in Unified Communications. Together, we are truly unifying enterprise telephony networks with services and solutions that baseline, optimize and secure multi-vendor telephony environments.

Under the new sales and marketing agreement, Nortel and certified Nortel resellers will market and sell the SecureLogix® ETM® System and related voice security assessment and monitoring services as part of Nortel's new Voice Security Services offering. On May 6, 2008, Nortel and SecureLogix announced that Spring Independent School District in Houston, Texas was their most recent joint-customer win under the new services relationship.

Nortel Voice Security Services combine patented technology from SecureLogix with Nortel voice and security expertise to help enterprise customers secure multi-vendor, multi-technology voice networks. These services include assessment of costly voice service theft and misuse across the enterprise, inefficient phone service configuration and resource utilization, and underlying voice network vulnerabilities that threaten the security of voice and data networks. Nortel resolves these issues through 'best practices' consulting and implementation of the SecureLogix ETM System.

The ETM System is a comprehensive voice network security and management platform, enabling customers to protect critical voice and data network resources from telephony-based attack and abuse, optimize their telecom resources and expenditures, and simplify voice network management. The PBX-independent ETM System unifies the security and management of distributed, multi-vendor voice environments. The ETM System is fully functional in today's TDM PBX environment, and supports migration to Voice-Over-IP (VoIP)/Unified Communications.

"The role that voice networks play in ensuring corporate and data security is emerging as a focus area for CIOs," said Rod Wallace, general manager for Security Services and Solutions at Nortel. "SecureLogix is recognized as one of the pioneers in the voice security market, and this relationship helps Nortel to offer a unified, 360-degree means to view and mitigate threats across corporate voice networks. Additionally, our customers can migrate to Unified Communications with the full confidence that Nortel will optimize their build-out with regard to cost and performance, while providing the necessary protections to ensure the reliability, confidentiality, and security of their business critical voice communications."

"SecureLogix is more than pleased with the customer interest and revenue opportunities that the Nortel relationship is already providing," added Joe O'Donnell, SecureLogix vice president of Worldwide Business Development. "We have already inked a number of deals through this relationship, and it's a privilege to work with a global leader in Unified Communications. Together, we are truly unifying enterprise telephony networks with services and solutions that baseline, optimize and secure multi-vendor telephony environments."

"This relationship was spurred by our customers," added SecureLogix President Lee Sutterfield. "Organizations are becoming more aware of the threats to their telephony systems and the critical need for dedicated voice network security and management solutions, particularly as they consider migration to VoIP/Unified Communications. Our expanding relationship with Nortel validates and heightens this awareness. Without comprehensive voice security technologies to ensure voice availability, quality of service, and confidentiality, broad deployment of VoIP and Unified Communications will not be realized."

ETM® System

The state-of-the-art ETM System is the world's first real-time media voice firewall, offering centralized visibility and control over all voice network access and usage through automated security policy enforcement. The system protects enterprise telecom and data networks from telephony-borne threats such as denial-of-service, toll fraud, service abuse, harassing calls, unmonitored Internet use over phone lines, information theft and data leakage, phone-based identity theft and 'vishing' attacks, modem line backdoors into the corporate LAN, voice/fax spam, and other unauthorized phone traffic and usage.

The ETM System's voice usage and performance management applications allow the enterprise to optimize telecom resources and service use to significantly reduce phone bills and other voice network operational costs through centralized, IP-PBX-independent call accounting, resource utilization reporting, call recording, and performance/QoS alerting and management capabilities for the enterprise. The system's patented voice security and management capabilities support both TDM and VoIP, enabling the world's first unified voice security and management technology spanning legacy and VoIP communications and infrastructure.
