CARY, N.C. -- Stonewall Networks (, a leading provider of network security policy management software, announced today that it has signed a distribution agreement with CipherOptics, the leader in Protecting Data in MotionÔ. Under the terms of the agreement CipherOptics will be integrating Stonewall Networks’ Cornerstone product for use with its security gateways.

Stonewall’s Cornerstone product brings comprehensive security management to multi-vendor networks. The Cornerstone Security Policy Manager provides centralized, consistent and reliable application of security policies to all managed security devices. Cornerstone enables network-wide policy enforcement, not just device-level enforcement. Without such software, each network security device operates autonomously, leaving a network vulnerable to attacks. The Cornerstone Security Management Platform reduces the overall deployment time, operations cost and complexity that would otherwise be associated with this level of comprehensive security.

CipherOptics security gateways Protect Data In Motion over IP and Ethernet networks by providing full-duplex, wire-speed protection—all with virtually no latency—providing protection for all business-critical information in transit, whether it’s data, voice or video conferencing. They combine the best-in-breed in security and speed: robust AES or 3DES encryption with unparalleled performance. It eliminates costly processing bottlenecks in the network while affordably maximizing the efficiency of existing network resources.

“We are very happy to have established a relationship with CipherOptics especially because of their leadership position in their market,” says James Hinderliter, CEO of Stonewall Networks. “Working with CipherOptics gives us the opportunity to give our Cornerstone product widespread distribution.”

“CipherOptics’ vision is enterprise-wide data protection that is transparent to the network,” said Ron Willis, president and CEO, CipherOptics. “Stonewall’s policy management solution is an important part of realizing that vision. We’re excited to be working with Stonewall on delivering the next generation of data protection solutions.”
