Rainbow eSecurity and i-SSL Integrate Security Solutions for USB Keys and SSL Acceleration Devices

Technology Partnership Integrates iKey Authentication Keys and CryptoSwift eCommerce Accelerators with i-SSL’s Security Solutions; Enhances Ease-of-Use and Improves Security

IRVINE, Calif., and Hong Kong, July 10, 2002 – Rainbow eSecurity, a Rainbow Technologies?¤ (Nasdaq: RNBO) company and a leading provider of digital content and transaction security solutions, and i-Security Solutions Limited (i-SSL), an emerging security solution provider, today announced a technology partnership to integrate Rainbow’s iKey and CryptoSwift products with i-SSL’s i-Secur products. The partnership will provide one-stop, seamlessly integrated security services and solutions to customers in the rapidly growing Asia Pacific IT security market.
i-SSL is a Hong Kong-based eSecurity company specializing in the development and delivery of a suite of PKI-based end-to-end applications for electronic document creation and management, secure data sharing and transmission, and database encryption and archiving. i-SSL provides front-end e-submission solutions as well as backend database security products, such as i-SecurDB, which encrypts critical and sensitive data at the column level. i-SSL also enables user-friendly, secure email messaging and e-document management with its i-SecurNotes, i-SecurFile and iSecurFolder products.

Rainbow’s iKey series provides a reliable and robust hardware security solution that is easy to use and administer. The iKey 2000 series is specifically designed for use in public key infrastructure (PKI) environments where on-board cryptographic capabilities and an uncompromised need for securing private signing keys is critical. The iKey 2032 is FIPS 140-1 Level 2 certified for high assurance security environments. Removing certificate storage and signing from vulnerable desktop systems and placing these functions in a key significantly reduces the risk of internal or external security attacks.

“As enterprises are beginning to integrate strong authentication and PKI solutions with existing legacy applications, it becomes critical for enterprises to look for a one-stop solution that is proven in the market,” said Jenner Lin, regional manager, Asia Pacific, Rainbow eSecurity. “i-SSL has bi-lingual technical development and professional services teams based in Hong Kong, the heart of Asia. i-SSL is an excellent partner and its rapid integration of our iKey products and CryptoSwift devices within its i-Secur products provide enterprises with a highly effective security solution for a variety of applications and databases.”

“Our partnership with Rainbow further enhances our ability to create, deliver and support world-class security solutions tailored to the specific needs of Asian and international customers,” said Frederick Chang, CEO of i-SSL. “Rainbow’s security solutions complement our i-Secur suite of products to provide user-friendly e-applications embedded with strong security measures. We are glad to have this partnership as i-SSL is committed to helping our customers find cost-effective applications to address the complex and ongoing process of maintaining the appropriate levels of e-Security in their organization.”
