25 March 2008

nuBridges, Inc., an eBusiness software and services provider for thousands of manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, utilities and financial services firms worldwide, has certified its file transfer and data protection software products for i5/OS V6R1, the latest operating system release for IBM’s System i servers.

A veteran provider of leading secure file transfer and data protection products to the System i marketplace and five-year IBM business partner, nuBridges obtained an early release version of i5/OS V6R1 in 2007 to begin development and testing. nuBridges’ solutions are ready to help companies connect, protect and comply the moment they implement the new i5/OS.

“Businesses transitioning to an updated operating system release can experience security breaches or application failures if their security solutions don’t work immediately, exposing them to risk and damages,” said Gary Palgon, vice president of Product Management for nuBridges. “We have pre-certified our software products on the i5/OS V6R1 platform so that customers transitioning to the new operating system have secure connections and uninterrupted data protection starting day one.”

The new i5/ OS V6R1, released on March 21, 2008, offers enhanced flexibility, scalability, efficiency and security for IBM’s popular and dependable System i server line.

nuBridges has thousands of customers on the platform including many who use nuBridges encryption and key management products to comply with important mandates such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

“i5/OS V6R1 includes new OS-level security features,” said Palgon. “Coupled with nuBridges’ connectivity and encryption solutions, our customers can protect sensitive data at rest, and transfer data inside or outside the firewall with end-to-end control, security and visibility. It’s a perfect combination.”
