iVEA Technologies Introduces CryptoSwift 400 eCommerce Accelerator; New Standard for Entry-level SSL Acceleration

Apr 03, 2001, 01:00 ET from Rainbow Technologies, Inc.

    IRVINE, Calif., April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- iVEA Technologies, a Rainbow
 Technologies (Nasdaq: RNBO) company and a leading provider of Internet and
 eCommerce security solutions, today debuted the CryptoSwift 400, a new
 400 transaction-per-second (TPS) PCI-based eCommerce accelerator that sets a
 new standard for entry-level cryptographic acceleration for fast, secure
 online transactions and Web-server performance enhancement.
     The CryptoSwift 400 optimizes Web-server performance without sacrificing
 the rapid acceleration of complex and robust encryption processes for today's
 high-capacity eCommerce Web servers.  The new entry-level CryptoSwift 400
 allows eCommerce Web sites to handle substantially more traffic, securely,
 with virtually no end-user waiting.
     Like other products in the CryptoSwift family of eCommerce acceleration
 solutions, the CryptoSwift 400 is ideal for online retail, electronic
 stock trading, financial services, payment gateways, medical records
 processing, and other online services for business-to-business (B2B) and
 business-to-consumer (B2C) eCommerce.  Using patent-pending technology,
 CryptoSwift contains a public-key processor that offloads and speeds up the
 operations that would otherwise saturate the Web server's main processor.  The
 CryptoSwift 400 provides a 1024-bit RSA transaction processing time of less
 than 4.9 milliseconds.
     "eCommerce transactional volume continues to accelerate and security
 technologies must keep up.  iVEA's CryptoSwift 400 does just that by
 increasing the number of SSL sessions per server," said IDC's Internet
 Security Research Analyst Charles Kolodgy.  "As an established SSL
 acceleration market leader, iVEA is continuing to enable eCommerce
 transactional security through their acceleration products."
     "As the number of Internet users continues to grow substantially, the
 performance and security burdens on Web servers also grows," said Shawn
 Abbott, president, iVEA Technologies.  "The CryptoSwift 400 raises the bar on
 entry-level SSL acceleration, delivering superior price/performance to
 competitive SSL acceleration solutions on the market.  For end-users, online
 transactions are both fast and secure.  For eCommerce and B2B sites,
 Web-server performance is optimized with minimal IT investment to accommodate
 even heavy user traffic."
 
     Fast, Faster, Fastest eCommerce Transactions
     All members of the CryptoSwift family of eCommerce accelerators improve
 Web-server response dramatically.  Improved response time frees the server to
 perform other tasks while accelerating SSL to make sure a secure transaction
 is a rapid one.  The CryptoSwift 400 easily plugs into an open PCI slot of
 virtually any Web-server platform and is easily integrated with all standard
 secure Web-server software packages including Netscape, iPlanet, Apache, and
 Microsoft.  The CryptoSwift 400 accelerates popular security protocols such as
 SSL, IPSec, SET, SSH, TLS, and others.
 
     Pricing and Availability
     The CryptoSwift 400 is available immediately.  Call for pricing at
