SAN FRANCISCO -- The Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) commitment to open architecture continues to create more value for enterprises as new companies join the OmniAccess 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian (NLG) partner ecosystem.

Invented by Bell Labs and incubated by Alcatel-Lucent Ventures, the OmniAccess 3500 NLG leverages 3G networks to allow enterprises to overcome the "mobile blind spot" by managing their laptops anywhere, any time, even when the laptop is turned off. Secure, always-on, fully-integrated third party applications and features offer enterprises a choice of best-of-breed solutions along with visibility and control.

  • Phoenix Technologies provides encryption and recovery and authentication services for the OmniAccess 3500 through its FailSafe theft deterrence and SecureCore Pre-Boot Authentication (PBA) services.

  • Sierra Wireless was selected by Alcatel-Lucent to provide the modems for the OmniAccess 3500 NLG CDMA cards, which are currently sold by Sprint under the Sprint Secure Laptop Guardian solution. The NLG is currently available to enterprises through Sprint as the SprintSecure Laptop Guardian. Sprint was the first carrier in the United States to make the service generally available. Sierra is also providing HSPA modems for the new OmniAccess 3500 NLG HSPA solution.

  • Utimaco Safeware AG is integrating its SafeGuard Enterprise data security solution with OmniAccess 3500 NLG to enable policy configuration and administration for device and data protection, as well as pre-boot authentication.

  • QuickSec VPN software from SafeNet has been integrated into the OmniAccess 3500 to enable optimized always-on VPN security features and seamless roaming regardless of connection type.

"Our demonstrated commitment to openness allows multiple patch management, backup/restore and equipment vendors to integrate their applications into the OmniAccess 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian to better meet specialized business needs," said Michel Emelianoff, Vice President of Alcatel-Lucent's Enterprise security activities. "Today and tomorrow, IT departments are benefiting from these types of partnerships to secure the evolving mobile workforce."
