Rainbow-iVEA Introduces Next-Generation CryptoSwift 1000 eCommerce Accelerator With Secure Key Storage for OEM Customers at the 2001 RSA Security Conference

New CryptoSwift 1000 Leverages New Design, New FastMAP 2 ASIC;

First SSL Accelerator With On-Board Secure Key Storage



Apr 10, 2001, 01:00 ET from Rainbow Technologies, Inc.

    IRVINE, Calif. and SAN FRANCISCO, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Rainbow-iVEA, a
 Rainbow Technologies (Nasdaq: RNBO) company and a leading provider of Internet
 and eCommerce security solutions, today introduced the CryptoSwift 1000, the
 first member of the CryptoSwift family of eCommerce accelerators using the new
 FastMAP 2 ASIC chip.  The CryptoSwift 1000, developed for the OEM marketplace,
 is the industry's first eCommerce accelerator with on-board secure key
 storage.  This security feature, combined with 1,000 transactions-per-second
 (TPS) performance, makes the CryptoSwift 1000 the new standard providing fast
 and secure online transactions for eCommerce and business-to-business (B2B)
 Web-server performance.  Rainbow-iVEA debuted the CryptoSwift 1000 at the 2001
 RSA Security Conference.
     The CryptoSwift 1000 uses the new FastMAP 2 cryptographic processor.  The
 new FastMAP 2 supports RSA 384-to-4096-bit encryption and is capable of
 performing 1024-bit RSA operation as fast as 2,000 TPS.  The CryptoSwift 1000
 is the first eCommerce accelerator to use the FastMAP 2 chip.  Future
 CryptoSwift eCommerce acceleration products will leverage the performance of
 the new chip with varying TPS ranges and price/performance benchmarks to give
 customers the broadest range of eCommerce acceleration solutions in the
 industry.
     "The development of the CryptoSwift 1000 is a milestone in iVEA's
 continued development of next-generation technologies for Internet security
 and Web-server performance enhancement," said Shawn Abbott, president,
 Rainbow-iVEA.  "The CryptoSwift 1000 absolutely raises the bar on PCI-based
 SSL acceleration, network scalability, and on-board secure key storage.  All
 other competitive accelerator boards store keys on the server's hard drive,
 leaving the keys exposed to theft by malicious software or viruses.  To date,
 this feature has only been available in expensive hardware security modules.
 These features, built into new CryptoSwift products in development, will
 further extend on our lead in this increasingly important and competitive
 market."
 
     The CryptoSwift 1000
     Like other members of the CryptoSwift product family, the CryptoSwift 1000
 optimizes Web-server performance while providing rapid transaction-per-second
 acceleration of the most popular and robust encryption processes.  The
 CryptoSwift 1000 allows today's high-capacity eCommerce Web-server sites to
 handle substantially more traffic, securely, with virtually no end-user
 waiting.
     The CryptoSwift 1000 easily plugs into an open PCI slot of virtually any
 Web-server platform and the initial release supports Web-server software
 packages from iPlanet and Apache.  The CryptoSwift 1000 accelerates popular
 security protocols such as SSL/TLS, WAP/WTLS, S/MIME, IKE/IPSec and others.
 Cryptographic keys can be stored on-board and the CryptoSwift 1000 gives users
 the ability to automatically clone keys across multiple cards in a server.
 Backup and restore operations have been simplified, and the CryptoSwift 1000
 supports on-board storage for up to 50 RSA keys.
     The CryptoSwift 1000 is the ideal card for environments that
 require a high degree of performance and security.  Target markets
 include: online retail applications, electronic stock trading, financial
 services, payment gateways, medical records processing, and other online
 services for business-to-business (B2B), business-to-consumer (B2C), and
 business-to-government (B2G) eCommerce.
