The Bristol Group and Trispen Technologies have signed an agreement whereby Bristol will distribute Trispen's IP-Granite products. Bristol will make the products available to its extensive partner network in Germany and several European countries. The IP-Granite product suite provides authenticated and secured communication for intranets and Internets. Estimates vary but the consensus is that the market for VPN products is set to explode. According to TechnologyEvaluation.com, the worldwide market for VPN products is expected to exceed $10 billion by the year 2003. The Cahners In-Stat Group believes that the VPN market reached more than $2,6 billion in 1999, and will be worth more than $32 billion by 2003. "We are very excited about the added market penetration that this partnership will give us into the European marketplace," says Jaco Botha, CEO of Trispen Technologies. "We set out to find a quality partner with considerable market reach, technical and marketing expertise, who is excited about IP-Granite. In Bristol we have found such a partner." IP-Granite provides a comprehensive suite of products that allow customers to build secure virtual private networks (VPNs) based on the Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) standard.
