 With EpiForce, logical security zones can span across physical and virtual environments, and systems can belong
 to one or more zones. Inclusion in a logical security zone is persistent and does not cease when a system is
 physically relocated or a virtual machine is moved, providing organizations the flexibility to locate systems
 where warranted by business demands. Logical security zones can be virtually unlimited in size,
 a contrast to the constraints of available ports on a switch or a firewall in traditional
 network segments.

 Logical security zones are centrally administered through one or
 more Epiforce Administration Consoles, enabling zones and security
 policies for an entire network to be modified with only a few
 mouse clicks. Administration can be delegated and workflow
 enabled for approving and committing policy changes.

 Logical security zones may be created, moved or modified without the
 need to physically reconfigure the network. EpiForce controls access to members                              Logical security zones enable layered security

Policy-Based Encryption of Data in Motion
 Policy-based encryption of data in motion offers a superior alternative to the rigid encryption approaches common in link encryptors,
 network firewalls and personal firewalls. Policy-based encryption of data in motion secures communications between servers and/or
 clients based on policies configured by the security administrator.

 Apani EpiForce takes a unique two-pronged approach to encryption – delivering an efficient, low-overhead encryption mechanism and
 enabling security administrators to selectively deploy encryption policy at the port level. This approach allows EpiForce to strike an optimal
 balance between communications security and application performance, while reducing overall bandwidth requirements due to encryption.
 Policy-based encryption of data in motion offers a superior alternative to the rigid, all-or-nothing encryption approaches common today. It
 secures communications between users, virtual machines, physical servers and clients based on policies set by the security administrator.

                                        Policy-based encryption offers efficient and selective encryption at the port level.
