iVEA Technologies Introduces CryptoSwift 400 eCommerce Accelerator

New Standard for Entry-level SSL Acceleration

IRVINE, CA, April 3, 2001 – 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.
