IRVINE, Calif. and SADDLE RIVER, N.J., Dec. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Rainbow
eSecurity, a Rainbow Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq: RNBO) company and a leading
solutions provider of digital content and transaction security, and Guardian
Digital, the open source security company, today announced a strategic and
technology partnership aimed at securing Linux-based transactions. This
integrated solution consists of Rainbow's CryptoSwift eCommerce accelerator
and Guardian Digital's EnGarde Secure Linux software suite.
The combined Rainbow-Guardian Digital solution adds powerful security
capabilities to Linux-based systems that reduce the time and resources needed
to develop a stable, versatile and scalable Linux-based online solution.
Users can take advantage of CryptoSwift's speed and performance for secure
online transactions of software updates, tech support access and security
information alerts provided through EnGarde Secure Linux.
"As increasing numbers of B2B enterprise organizations turn to Linux-based
systems, the ability of users to secure transactions quickly and effectively
without requiring a Linux administrator on staff is business critical," said
Shawn Abbott, president, Rainbow eSecurity. "The combination of EnGarde
Secure Linux and CryptoSwift provides a powerful and robust solution for fast
and secure online transactions. Adding to that, the ability to build a
complete corporate Internet presence provides a cost-effective and high-secure
solution for these security-minded organizations."
"Rainbow's CryptoSwift is the market's leading SSL acceleration solution,
which not only provides high levels of security for each transaction, but
optimizes performance of Web servers to prevent transactional bottlenecks and
poor server performance," said Dave Wreski, president, Guardian Digital.
"CryptoSwift complements the versatility and security of EnGarde Secure Linux
and offers users robust enterprise features and support to deliver a powerful
multipurpose Internet communication platform."
EnGarde Secure Professional is a comprehensive software solution that
provides all the tools necessary to build a complete corporate online
presence, including e-mail, eCommerce and Web services. The security features
integrated into its design provide a level of assurance that an organization's
online assets are only available to authorized users. Protection from the
most common Internet worms, unauthorized access and modifications, as well as
an advanced intrusion alert system, marks EnGarde as the most secure Linux
environment available. The built-in CSR generation and SSL certificate
management function turn a once complicated and error-prone process into an
easily manageable administrative process that can be repeated consistently for
hundreds of Web sites.
The Guardian Digital Linux Lockbox is the first open source network server
appliance designed to serve as a complete eBusiness solution. Using a mouse
and the Web-based management system, administrators can effortlessly create
their corporate online storefront or thousands of virtual Web sites. Suitable
for ISPs, ASPs and larger enterprises seeking to promote its products online,
the Lockbox can connect and serve hundreds of users with millions of Web
items, and can deliver and process e-mail services.
Rainbow's CryptoSwift eCommerce accelerators, combined with Guardian
Digital's hardware and software, provides customers a system for fast and
secure online transactions and enhanced Web server performance.
Rainbow's eCommerce performance and security acceleration technology is
the industry's leading solution for cryptographic acceleration, providing fast
and secure transactions over the Internet while dramatically reducing Web
server and network appliance response time. The CryptoSwift family of
eCommerce acceleration solutions accelerates the public-key cryptographic
functions of popular security protocols such as SSL/TLS, WAP/WTLS, S/MIME,
IKE/IPSec and others. SSL acceleration technology was first developed by
Rainbow and improves server response time for secure connections by freeing
the Web servers and network appliances to perform other tasks, especially
during peak load and heavy traffic periods. Since 1997, Rainbow's CryptoSwift
is the SSL acceleration solution of choice for fast, secure online
transactions for B2B and B2C environments of all types and sizes.
CryptoSwift has won more major industry awards for excellence than any
other SSL acceleration solution, including a prestigious "Well-Connected
Award" for best SSL accelerator and "Editor's Choice Award" for best internal
SSL accelerator from Network Computing, a "Blue Ribbon Award" from Network
World as the industry's top cryptographic accelerator and two American
Electronics Association (AEA) High Tech Awards for "Innovative
Product/Technology" in 2000 and 2001. In addition, Rainbow's NetSwift2012
appliance for SSL/WTLS (wired/wireless) security acceleration was a 2001
Editor's Choice selection from Communications News.
