Quarri Joins F5's Technology Alliance Program to Deliver Efficient End-to-End Security of Web Browser Sessions
AUSTIN, Texas --(Business Wire)--
Technologies, a security software company that empowers
organizations to keep their most sensitive data secure, today announced
that it has joined F5
Networks' Technology Alliance Program (TAP). By partnering with F5,
the global leader in Application Delivery Networking, Quarri enables
clients to maximize the value of deploying the companies' products
together. The companies' combined solution of Quarri
Protect On Q (POQ) with F5's BIG-IP
Local Traffic Manager (LTM) will enable efficient, end-to-end
security of web sessions for their mutual customers.
"Quarri is committed to providing organizations across industries with
the strongest and most efficient protection for their critical data,"
said Bill Morrow, executive chairman and CEO of Quarri Technologies.
"Formalizing our alliance with F5 provides us the opportunity to jointly
deliver a comprehensive web application security site that includes
BIG-IP LTM, BIG-IP Application Security (News - Alert) Manager, BIG-IP Access Policy
Manager and zero-hour malware and browser data leakage controls for
mutual customers. By aligning our technology with F5 solutions, we are
delivering an enhanced user experience, enabling them to optimize their
POQ deployments for simplified enforcement and reduced overhead."
Through the TAP partnership, F5 will promote assured interoperability
and continued innovation with Quarri, and provide a framework for
ongoing collaboration. Quarri is now enabling its enterprise customers
to leverage their existing BIG-IP LTM appliances for enforcement of
their POQ deployments. Organizations that deploy BIG-IP LTM as a
front-end device for multiple independent web applications can require
the use of a protected browser without modifications to any of their
protected web applications.
"F5 welcomes Quarri to our Technology Alliance Program," said Calvin
Rowland, VP of Technology and ISV Alliances at F5 Networks (News - Alert). "Through
partnerships with technology leaders in adjacent markets, F5 customers
extend the value of their application delivery environments. Quarri
Protect On Q and F5 customers are assured of interoperability and
optimized performance when using these solutions in tandem."
F5's BIG-IP solution also allows for efficient caching of POQ session
information, minimizing the amount of traffic between the BIG-IP device
and the POQ Server. As a result, customers can substantially reduce the
load on their POQ Server, and minimize their overhead on end-user
traffic for POQ enforcement.
With Quarri's POQ on demand web information security solution,
organizations can address a variety of challenging security issues,
including external and internal attacks, and unauthorized use and
replication of confidential data. Leveraging Quarri's patented
technology, the POQ hardened browser provides zero-hour malware
protection against key logging, frame grabbing, cache mining and inbound
attacks. POQ also enables enterprises to enforce security policies that
prevent end users from copying, saving, printing or screen-capturing
browser-delivered data, preventing costly data breaches.
"Organizations using web and cloud-based applications are looking for
solutions that enable them to enforce consistent enterprise security
policies whenever and wherever these services are accessed and from
managed and unmanaged devices," said Neil MacDonald, vice president and
Gartner (News - Alert) Fellow. "Cloud access security broker platforms are emerging to
provide a comprehensive set of security policy enforcement by
interjecting security policy between users of cloud-based resources and
the cloud-based services they are consuming."
