Array Networks, a global leader in application delivery networking, today announced that they have bagged a defence order worth $250,000 for WAN Optimization and Access Gateways (SSL VPN) solutions. The project involves improving the network performance in remote locations, securing critical operational data and enabling VSAT deployments. Array Networks have constituted a focused team and will be working very closely with partners and technical establishments specializing in the defence sector to provide the best technology available. The company aims to derive at least 25% of their revenues from this sector in the near future.
Mr Shibu Paul, Regional Sales Director – India, ME and SEA at Array Networks said, “Our ultimate aim is to deliver fully-integrated, mission-critical applications to the defence sector by providing full access to the applications and services they normally require. We are working very closely with our partners in this area to improve the network performance in remote locations with VSAT deployments and other strategies to provide a highly connected environment.”
Defence and military forces increasingly require a reliable and secure communication infrastructure for transmitting critical applications and data to remote areas. They usually face challenges in accessing confidential data via mobile networks. The nature of work also makes it tough to securely share information across different locations and respond quickly to queries. Array Networks would address such issues related to improving network performance and enhancing the speed of communication in these areas, while ensuring the highest levels of security.
Array Networks’ ultra-secure SSL VPN based gateways with machine-based and two-factor authentication will be implemented in a few divisions to securely share applications and data. In addition, they will offer network acceleration for some of the very critical mobile installations, helping them accelerate all mobile-based activities in remote areas. Array will deploy WAN optimization, SSL VPN and secure remote access solutions to support military and civil protection forces. This would help them enhance network performance and efficiency. Array Networks will also focus on improving WAN speed to achieve faster communications.
