Aruba Networks and Ipelium Selected By Galderma for Global Wireless LAN Makeover
Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARUN), a global leader in wireless LANs and secure mobility solutions, today announced that Galderma has selected Aruba as its global standard for wireless LANs. Galderma, a joint venture between Nestle and L'Oreal, is an international pharmaceutical company exclusively dedicated to dermatology. Deployments have been completed at Galderma's French Corporate Services, UK office, production sites, and central data center in Switzerland by Ipelium, Aruba certified solutions provider with strong expertise in security and mobility technologies. Aruba was selected for the project based on its robust wireless LANs, ease of use, remote access capability for remote offices and teleworkers, and end-to-end security.
"Our offices and production sites are geographically dispersed, and prior to Aruba, concerns about the integrity of this far-flung network lead us to enforce a 'no wireless' policy everywhere," said Marc Tournier, Security and Compliance Manager at Galderma. "Faced with strong demand for wireless access and greater mobility, we sought a mobility solution that would protect the integrity of our data. We also wanted a solution that could be managed with minimal IT overhead yet was flexible enough to meet the different needs of our field offices and logistics facilities. Aruba offered solutions on all counts, and in conjunction with Aruba partner, Ipelium, we've now deployed wireless networks across France, the U.S., U.K., Canada and the central data center in Switzerland."
Aruba's secure mobility solutions deliver networks to users by integrating adaptive wireless LANs, identity-based security, and remote networking into a cohesive, high-performance system. Adaptive wireless LANs deliver robust connectivity to roaming users in need of high-speed data, toll-quality voice, and streaming video applications. Identity-based security associates policies with users instead of network hardware, delivering follow-me security that enhances mobility regardless of how or where the network is accessed. Aruba's Remote Access Point (RAP) technology securely networks remote sites and road warriors, and does away with the client management and administrative burdens typical of VPNs.
"RAP will be integral to our disaster recovery and business continuity strategy," continued Tournier. "Should an incident occur that leads to a disruption in service, RAP technology will simply and securely get our systems back on-line again."
"Aruba's solutions offer the most complete and innovative set of wireless LAN functionality on the market, and make the concept of a mobile enterprise a reality," stated Denis Confuron, Associate Director at Ipelium. "This project involved rolling out a solution to Galderma sites worldwide. Our extensive security and mobility expertise, in conjunction with great support from Aruba, allowed us to rise to the challenge. Aruba is a very good partner, and we look forward to working with them as Galderma expands their network in the months ahead."
