API Technologies’ ION Networks™ to Highlight Solutions for Secure Remote Vendor Access at the International Avaya® Users Group

General Manager Henry Gold to Present on Panel Discussing Ways Avaya Users can Optimize, Improve, and Ensure Voice Operations

ORLANDO, FL  –   June 8, 2015 – API Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ATNY),  a leading provider of high performance RF, microwave, millimeterwave, power, and security solutions, will showcase its ION Networks™ line of purpose-built products for secure remote device management to allow third-party vendor access at the International Avaya User Group (IAUG™) CONVERGE2015, June 14-18 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.

Henry Gold, General Manager of the ION Networks business group will also present on the panel titled “Optimize, Improve, Ensure: Solutions to Run your Operations more Effectively,” during the user group breakout session on Tuesday, June 16.

“The ION purpose-built products allow permitted third parties, such as voice vendors like Avaya, access to enterprise unified communications systems while preventing cross-domain intrusions,” said Mr. Gold. “The ION solution addresses key enterprise security requirements necessary to protect against the insider threat by granting vendors granular, traceable access to only the systems they require.”

Products to be highlighted during CONVERGE2015 include the ION SA5600-SAL, a plug-and-play  security appliance with an embedded Avaya Secure Access Link (SAL) Gateway that provides IP and secure dial-up connectivity to Avaya and heritage Nortel systems. It allows technicians, service providers, and support services to conduct remote troubleshooting and maintenance of critical systems while protecting enterprise security. The ION SA5600-SAL is Avaya Services Certified and sold through the Avaya DevConnect Select Product Program (SPP). 

“Our SAL Gateway appliance is an ideal solution for organizations that may have limited technical resources but still want a strong security posture. The SAL Gateway is easy to install and highly cost effective,” added Mr. Gold.

The ION SA5600-SAL is pre-configured with the SAL Gateway, and its plug-and play properties enable it to be installed in under 10 minutes.  It supports up to 400 managed devices and eliminates the need for a dedicated server, a RedHat® license, and a skilled engineer with Linux® knowledge.
