Tidings Aker is qualified as Intel® Software Premier Elite Partner

Published on 26 April 2012
Earlier this year, Aker joined the Intel® Software Partner Program, Virtual Community initiative for independent software vendors. Through a benefit plan that includes everything from planning tools to technological resources, the project allows participants to align their product development with the technologies and Intel platforms.
The program divides its members into three categories: Intel® Software Registered Partner Intel® Software Premier Partner and Intel® Software Premier Elite Partner. The classification is based on the points that the company adds to carry out the activities encompassed by the project and the marks awarded to its software, evaluated for Intel.
Recently, Aker was qualified as Intel® Software Premier Elite Partner, the highest category of the Program. To reach this level, the participant must obtain a minimum of 100 points of qualification and complete at least one Software Assessment with a result that meets or exceeds the average grade stipulated by the program.
A Intel avalia individualmente as funcionalidades dos softwares e a elas são atribuídas notas de 00 a 2,0, sendo que é necessário alcançar a partir de 1,2 ponto para garantir aprovação. Nesse processo, os programas são monitorados para a análise do uso dos processadores e das novas tecnologias Intel®. No caso da Aker, foram avaliados o filtro web e o filtro de mensagem instantânea do Aker Firewall e do Aker Web Gateway. Tais funcionalidades obtiveram respectivamente as notas 1,24 e 1,98, sendo esta última pontuação uma das melhores do Programa no Brasil.
A parceria entre Aker e Intel® está, no entanto, apenas no início. O Aker Control Center e o Aker Secure Mail Gateway, além de outras funcionalidades do Aker Firewall e o Aker Web Gateway, já estão na fila para serem testados pela Intel. O objetivo é crescer cada vez mais no Programa e os resultados mostram que a empresa está no caminho certo.
"The qualification of Aker as Intel® Software Premier Elite Partner is a recognition of proof for their work and gives the certainty of being in walking in the right direction in terms of technological development. In a more specific view, this partnership allows better use of hardware resources, thus more effective integration of our software with our appliances. In practice, this is reversed in direct benefit to the Aker customers who rely on more robust and stable solutions, "said Wolmer Godoi, Chief Technology Officer of Aker Security Solutions.
