eSecure Distribution, exclusive South African distributor of DBAM’s Precision range of WAN Optimisation Controllers, has appointed Exbandnet as its first Solutions Partner.  Exbandnet owns and markets hip – Hospitality IP, South Africa’s most advanced hotel and conference HSIA and VoIP service provider.

DBAM Systems is a UK-based company at the forefront of developing ground-breaking bandwidth control and management products.
eSecure GM John Hindley has a two-pronged approach to marketing and supporting the products in South Africa – an Open Channel and an Accredited Channel. He is actively evaluating a number of SA firms that are keen to join this channel programme.
The Open Channel, will market only the EP60 to the small and medium-sized enterprise market. The DBAM EP60, with a throughput of 4MB, offers Traffic Controller, WAN Acceleration, Load Balancer, Traffic Analysis, Firewall/Advanced Security in a single device.
The Accredited Channel—comprising approved partners, preferred partners and solutions partners—will market and support the higher throughput units, with throughputs up to 1GB. Full training on the products will be available for these partners from eSecure’s Midrand offices.
The EP range is designed to optimise and accelerate WAN/Internet applications thereby significantly increasing service performance. This is a complex task but the EP devices achieve this is a logical and user friendly manner – for example the EP60 comes preset with rules that govern, prioritisation, load balancing, least cost routing etc.
Hindley says that the EP60 is a real ‘out of the box’ 90:90 rule solution. “Its profiles will suit 90% of businesses, 90% of the time – so a great start. What is really impressive thereafter, is the amount of fine-tuning that can be carried out – if required – in order to hit as close to the 100:100 rule as possible.”
Aimed at small and medium businesses and branch offices, the idea behind the EP60 is first to remove as much of the complexity as possible. To this end, the product provides a five-minute first-time installation which lets the user choose the type of business it is, eg average, security conscious, and automatically creates a business profile to suit that business type. Thereafter it can be fine tuned as much as the enterprise needs.
The device is shipped with business profiles that match 90% of requirements 90% of the time.
The EP60 recently won the Gold Award from Europe’s foremost independent network testing facility, Broadband Testing, and is a ‘Blue Ocean’ product installed for less than R20 000. For competitors to provide the same five technologies would require m/ultiple devices and cost in the region of R50 000 to R70 000.
The EP 60’s corporate siblings – the EP600 / EP6000 and EP60 000 – easily handle from between 2MB for enterprise traffic to 1GB at carrier class.
Hindley says that, with the arrival of DBAM’s EP range on the bandwidth-stressed South African market, the quality of the internet experience and traffic between branch offices for enterprises is set to dramatically improve.
“Network optimisation tools help enterprises manage business access to the Web. Staff wasting time browsing the web, using webmail and instant messaging, often with viruses in tow, can now be monitored and governed. Music and video downloads dominate bandwidth usage, and can now be prevented, or provided low priority status, ensuring critical business functions receive bandwidth.
“Other persistent problems needing vigilance include illegal file sharing, posting sensitive information on messages boards, spyware accessing confidential information and Pop-Up adverts reduce productivity. All of these can be controlled or eliminated with tools from the EP range.”
DBAM’s EP tools optimise and accelerate WAN usage by creating rules that govern bandwidth. Criteria, assigned to the rules, can be any number of values in the seven-layer OSI stack, from Ethernet ports to MAC address, IP addresses or even the Layer 7 protocol or attachments. In a corporate environment the EP600 gives full report facilities for effective network management.
The DBAM EP product range brings a fresh and cost-effective approach to network security. The products are very comprehensive and offer incredible value. Indeed each of the EP products is an all-in-one traffic and user management, optimisation and security device that has no obvious peers.
