V-One Corp., a leader in network and Internet security technologies, announced contracts with Perot Systems Corp., making the Dallas computer services company both a customer and distributor.
Perot Systems began testing V-One's SmartGate, which enables secure access to internal back-office systems information, for its own internal applications months before offering it to its customers.
Perot relies on SmartGate on an extranet system, securing communications with external partners and vendors. Also, employees working at major financial institutions get secure access to sensitive product, pricing, and other proprietary information.
"Perot Systems likes to resell products we use ourselves," said Richard Karon, network engineering specialist with Perot Systems. "The integrated approach, scalability and ease of deployment of V-One's SmartGate are of great benefit to us and will be to our customers."
