WALTHAM, Mass. -- Colubris Networks, a global provider of intelligent Wi-Fi wireless networking devices for operators of large public and enterprise networks, is teaming with RSA Security (NASDAQ: RSAS) to create a robust Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) security solution for enterprises.

The integrated solution combines Colubris Networks' award-winning CN1050 and CN1054 Wi-Fi access devices - the first 802.11 intelligent access points in the industry with embedded VPN data encryption technology - with RSA SecurID(R) two-factor authentication software and RSA Keon(R) digital certificate management software. As a result, RSA Security's customers worldwide that use RSA SecurID to authenticate their VPN users can now leverage this common approach to authenticate and secure their wireless users as well. This enables enterprises to dramatically reduce deployment costs, provide a simple and seamless user experience and consistently adhere to the highest security standards in the industry.

RSA Secured(R) certification ensures the companies' mutual customers that RSA Security and Colubris Networks products interoperate to deliver reliable, robust security solutions. More than 400 organizations worldwide deploy Colubris Networks equipment, including Telecom Italia, NTT-ME, McGill University, Bangkok International Airport, the Resort Municipality of Whistler, and three of the world's largest hotel chains.

"We are extremely pleased with the addition of Colubris Networks, a leader in the field of secure wireless networking, to our RSA Secured Partner Program," said Stuart Cohen, director of partner development at RSA Security. "With the unprecedented growth in wireless networking, companies must maintain secure access to vital information and applications. The strategic partnership between Colubris Networks and RSA Security means that customers can reap the benefits of our integrated solution when deploying WLANs, while reducing the risk of exposing mission-critical data and resources to unauthorized access."
