iVEA Technologies Introduces CryptoSwift EN-2000 eCommerce Accelerator; Industry's Fastest Stand-alone SSL Acceleration Termination Appliance

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 introduced the CryptoSwift EN-2000, the
 industry's fastest stand-alone SSL acceleration appliance designed for large
 business-to-business Web-server farms or high-end data centers when SSL
 acceleration is shared across multiple servers.  The EN-2000 provides up to
 2,000 transactions per second (TPS) performance, making it the fastest
 available SSL acceleration appliance on the market today.
     The CryptoSwift EN-2000's 100BaseT Ethernet rack-mountable appliance form
 factor permits high-performance security acceleration to scale to a network of
 servers without consuming additional PCI slots.  The EN-2000 offers twice the
 processing power of the first-generation EN-1000 accelerator and can easily be
 integrated into all popular server platforms including iPlanet Web Server,
 Apache, and Microsoft IIS.  The large capacity provided by this processing
 power allows the EN-2000 to scale with the needs of today's ever-growing IT
 infrastructures.  Like other members of iVEA's CryptoSwift family, the EN-2000
 works with existing secure Web-server resources and makes an organization's
 Web server infrastructure investment last longer.
     "iVEA continues to raise the bar on secure network performance in order to
 match the real demand created by increasing Internet usage, broadband
 connectivity and high-performance servers," said Shawn Abbott, president, iVEA
 Technologies.  "The Ethernet appliance form factor has been successful for
 data center customers wanting high-end, scalable security, and complements our
 PCI add-on cards and embedded ASIC and component products to provide the
 industry's only complete range of solutions."
     "We have been seeing incredible interest in security appliances over the
 past year," said IDC's Internet Security Analyst Charles Kolodgy.  "iVEA, as a
 major provider of cryptographic acceleration solutions, has recognized this
 trend and responded with the EN-2000 appliance."
     The EN-2000 accelerates popular security protocols used for eCommerce
 (SSL/TLS), payments (SET) and virtual private networking (IPSec/IKE).  The
 EN-2000 delivers enhanced Web-server performance while accelerating the most
 popular security protocols used by the industry's most popular eCommerce Web
 servers.  Competitive eCommerce appliances typically accelerate SSL at a rate
 of 200 to 600 transactions per second, while handling other tasks such as load
 balancing.  By focusing strictly on SSL acceleration, the EN-2000 is ideal for
 server environments that use other technologies for Internet operation and
 optimization.  The EN-2000 can accommodate more transactions with virtually no
 customer waiting.  The EN-2000's rack-mountable design makes it an ideal
 addition to high-end data centers.
     Like other products in the CryptoSwift family of eCommerce acceleration
 solutions, the EN-2000 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.
 
     Pricing and Availability
     The CryptoSwift EN-2000 is available immediately.  Call for pricing at
 1-877-274-4832.  International pricing is available by calling 1-949-206-7000.
