SAN FRANCISCO -- Perfigo, Inc., an innovative provider of integrated, software-based wireless LAN (WLAN) security and management solutions, today announced its membership in the HP OpenView Solution Alliance Program as a Solution level partner.

Integrating Perfigo SecureSmart and SmartManager with HP OpenView Network Node Manager for Windows creates a unified solution for network administrators to seamlessly and securely deploy WLANs within the enterprise, and provides the ability to configure, manage, and monitor both wireless and wired networks from the same console. Perfigo SmartManager enables HP OpenView to discover wireless network nodes and map them within the overall network topology, adding wireless asset configuration and management to the HP OpenView portfolio.

"Wireless LANs have become a high priority for IT departments," said Arvin Babu, CEO of Perfigo. "More users are demanding the flexibility of wireless computing, which creates huge challenges for network administrators -- protecting the network against attacks and bandwidth pirating, ensuring unauthorized users don't gain access to corporate resources and information, and managing far-flung wireless assets. The Perfigo solution integration with HP OpenView will be a powerful tool that will help network professionals overcome these challenges, while also streamlining wireless and wired management tasks."

Perfigo SecureSmart is a software-based solution that integrates the security and management of users and devices for 802.11 WLAN deployments. SecureSmart's security services and management features combine to provide unprecedented levels of control and flexibility for securing and managing heterogeneous WLAN environments. SecureSmart combines the functions of firewall, IPSEC, virtual private network (VPN), Denial of Service (DOS) attack protection, authentication proxy, Access Point (AP) management, rogue AP detection/location, identity/role-based user management and SNMP master agent functionality into a scalable and centrally deployable solution.
