Specialty Systems and Quipa Sign Reseller Agreement
By Rahul Arora, TMCnet Contributor
Specialty Systems, Inc. (SSI), a systems integrator in the military, law enforcement and commercial markets, recently signed a Reseller Partnership agreement with Quipa US, a software company delivering a new and revolutionary approach to secure network connectivity.
The partnership will help the companies accelerate the introduction of QuipaLoop, a solution that secures access to services anywhere on the network and protects data in transit across the network through Quipa's Secure Connection Broker (SCB) technology.
QuipaLoop delivers a simple and secure agile networking solution that aggregates and shares services between any number of sites without complex network bridging, new infrastructure or specialist hardware. QuipaLoop challenges the traditional idea that the best way for ICT to support a business is through the construction of an immovable business perimeter, circling an impenetrable company network.
"Increasingly we hear the cry for a simple solution that will help our corporate and government customers securely connect and collaborate despite the differences in their networks, devices, and physical locations," said Emil Kaunitz, CEO at Specialty Systems. "QuipaLoop upends the traditional model of an immovable physical perimeter circling an impenetrable organizational network -- to address our customers' reality that their operational perimeter exists wherever their people and their business devices may be. Even further, Quipa accomplishes this with authentication technology that eliminates the weaknesses that are increasingly widespread in today's VPN solutions."
The solution helps to protect business reputation and information and still meet the challenges of providing solutions that support their business’s information needs and agility, keeping it safe from security threats and managing infrastructure and costs.
"Specialty Systems has a deep and long reputation for their knowledge of systems technology and the integrity of their well-crafted solutions, especially in the military," said Tom Gensch, president of Quipa US. "We look forward to leveraging their expertise to integrate the increased security and flexibility of QuipaLoop into their systems design – be that for collaboration between architects, engineers, and builders who frequently work on mobile devices, to facilitating the access for third-party contractors working at government or corporate sites, to streamlining the secure connections between municipal police departments and state law enforcement bureaus – in each case ensuring that the users have secure access to only the services required."
