ANX and ENX Interconnect Networks to Support Worldwide eCommerce

Interconnection of leading industry networks creates a joint user base of over 1,600 companies

FRANKFURT, PARIS, SOUTHFIELD (Mich.) – July 21, 2010 - ANX, a leading provider of networking and managed security services, and ENX Association, the governing body of the communications network of the European automotive industry, today announced the interconnection of their networks, creating a global standard for secure business-to-business (B2B) data communications. The official agreement, which certifies ANX as an ENX Service Provider, was signed on July 8 in Berlin after a successful two month pilot phase.

The interconnection of the ANX and ENX networks allows the currently more than 1,600 connected suppliers and OEMs in both North America and Europe to establish secure, private connections with any other connected business at no additional cost.  This improves the performance of eCommerce and eliminates the risk of potential business disruption caused by problems with the public Internet. 

"We are very excited to have connected the ANX and ENX networks,” said Rich Stanbaugh, president and CEO of ANXeBusiness Corp. “Significantly increasing the size of our communities while maintaining our stringent requirement for performance, availability and security creates tremendous value for our customers.”

“ANX has always made it easy to securely connect to other trading partners,” said Jamal Farhat, Vice President and Chief Information Officer of Borg Warner.  “ANX is allowing us to establish connections to European based partners faster than previously possible.”

ANX and ENX Managed Security Services support mission-critical business data exchange and real-time processes in sectors such as finance, product research & development and supply chain logistics. Using state-of-the-art encryption technology and network management, both private networks deliver dependable performance, complete accountability and highly secure communications. Guaranteed service levels and strict user identification protect companies from common public Internet security threats, vulnerabilities, performance problems and reliability issues.

“When we began our cooperation with ANX it was imperative that we provide a secure, unified communications network that would allow our customers to connect with the highest level of ease and at no additional cost,” said Lennart Oly, Managing Director of ENX Association. “All project goals as well as the tight schedule were met in full and our joint customers now have a strategic edge when it comes to securely sharing information.”

Setting the benchmark for industry networks over the last 10 years, ANX and ENX have already been selected by other North American and European industries such as Defense, Aerospace and Medical Equipment manufacturing. Physical interconnection, global connectivity and a common technology standard make Secure Private Cloud solutions even more attractive to other industrial and government communities.
