NASHUA, NH, August 21, 2008 – Ezenia! Inc. (OTCBB: EZEN.OB), a leading market provider of real-time collaboration solutions for corporate and government networks and eBusiness, today announced the company’s acceptance into Hewlett-Packard’s prestigious Developer and Solution Partner Program (DSPP).
Under the terms of the appointment, HP’s network of DSPP program resellers can now access the Ezenia reseller program for real-time secure collaboration solution, which is particularly well-suited to HP’s carrier grade servers. Ezenia’s product information will be included in the DSPP program catalog later this year.
“We are excited about our partnership with HP and believe our clients in the federal, state, local governments and the commercial market segment will benefit from this partnership. All of these sectors are seeking secure and sophisticated collaboration solutions and services,” said Gene Wolf, Ezenia! Executive Vice President of Operations.
“Most importantly, Ezenia’s government customers which require 100% uptime on their networks are already inclined to purchase carrier-class, fault tolerant servers. Knowing our scalable and reliable collaboration solution will work seamlessly on HP’s fault-tolerant, carrier grade servers should prove to be a win-win for Ezenia, HP, and all our customers,” Wolf concluded.
