to Provide High Availability and Enhanced Performance for Microsoft Rights Management Services
Seattle, WA & Milpitas, CA – December 1, 2014: Synergy Advisors today announced that it has joined the Array Networks Technology Partner Program to integrate high availability, performance and enhanced security into its broad portfolio of compliance and information protection services.
Synergy’s end-to-end solutions for Microsoft Rights Management Services (RMS) provide information protection for sensitive documents, emails and files and prevent unauthorized use. For businesses leveraging Synergy RMS solutions, protection is persistent; remaining with sensitive information no matter where it goes or how it is transported.
To ensure the highest-levels of availability and performance for its solutions and business customers, Synergy has built high availability into its reference architecture for RMS services (cross-premises and in the cloud) using Array APV Series application delivery controllers. Deploying Array, Synergy and its customers are assured that RMS service will always be accessible and that users will not be prevented from accessing the business-critical information for which they are authorized.
Array APV Series application delivery controllers (ADC) ensure that requests to the RMS servers/and the RMS Connector Servers are load-balanced and highly available, even across geographic regions. Additionally, where there is a need to access protected documents and emails from beyond the corporate network, Array ADCs allow RMS servers to be accessed over the Internet via secure SSL connections. Within broader Synergy information protection deployments, Array ADCs also load balance Microsoft Active Directory federated services (ADFS) for ensuring information security across the cloud and Internet.
“We are pleased that Synergy Advisors compliance and information protection solutions have proven interoperable with Array Networks load balancing and high availability product,” stated Mr Cristian Mora, President and CEO of Synergy Advisors. “We are striving to give our customers the best possible solution; this means superior security, but it also means ensuring that access to applications is uninterrupted. Through our partnership with Array, we are now able to implement best practices that deliver superior levels of security, availability and performance.”
“Array Networks is committed to ensuring our leading application delivery networking solutions support the broadest possible portfolio of Microsoft applications, solutions and services,” said Mr Rich Siegel, Vice President of Sales and Business Development for Array Networks. “We are equally committed to solutions and partnerships that increase our ability to secure business critical applications. Partnering with the team at Synergy has allowed Array to bolster its offerings on both fronts.”
