Miller Systems Unveils New Web Presence for Acopia Networks

Reinforces Brand Identity, Defines New Markets, Provides Secure Access to Proprietary Content

Boston - September 22, 2003

Miller Systems, one of Boston’s premier technology consulting firms specializing in web engineering and IT consulting, today announced a new web presence for Acopia Networks, Inc., a developer of unique Adaptive Resource Networking products. Miller Systems worked with the Acopia Networks’ marketing team to help launch the company from stealth mode by creating a web presence that reflected the company’s updated brand identity and defined a new market opportunity. Acopia leveraged Miller Systems’ industry expertise, award-winning approach to design and information architecture and its new, powerful dataDriver Secure Portal tool for secure, affordable, third party access to proprietary content, files, and links.

“Having worked with Miller Systems in the past, I was delighted to have the opportunity to work with Seth and his team again,” said Brendon Howe, Vice President Marketing and Business Development, Acopia Networks, Inc. “Miller Systems’ street level market expertise, consultative methodology and common sense approach ensured the success of the overall project from the very beginning.”

Founded in January 2002, Acopia Networks is pioneering a new class of product, the Adaptive Resource Switch, which integrates technologies such as L4-7, server switching, file switching, and web service switching to deliver a unique on-demand network infrastructure. This solution empowers enterprises to "conserve, control, and adapt" their existing global IT infrastructures. The result is a dramatic reduction in storage and server capital expenditures as well as significant savings in operational costs. With an updated brand identity planned and new opportunities arising in the market, Acopia Networks required an online presence that reinforced brand-level messages and reflected the specific needs of its target constituents. In addition, Acopia’s new online presence includes thoughtful information architecture, well-branded design elements and fast, easy and secure access to proprietary content, files, and links for qualified customers, prospects and system integration partners seeking to work with Acopia to deploy their revolutionary solutions.

Using Miller Systems’ dataDriver Secure Portal, Acopia is able to provide partners, customers, and other trusted third parties with access to proprietary information like software updates, documentation, and release notes, using a rules- based, easily configured security policy. Miller Systems’ affordable, browser-based solution allows Acopia to keep this critical content organized, and makes the process of updating extremely simple and quick. dataDriver Secure Portal requires no system administration expertise or ACL management in the web server.

“Acopia was the perfect candidate for Secure Portal,” said Seth Miller, Founder, President and CEO of Miller Systems, Inc. “As an emerging startup, Acopia’s content and document management needs for their customers and partners are relatively lightweight today; an enterprise portal framework would be overkill. Secure Portal is a perfect springboard for a growing company like Acopia that needs to move in real-time to support these critical third parties with content and other digital assets. As Acopia grows and adds mission critical systems, we look forward to supporting them as their needs evolve.”
