New addition to the FlowThrough security processor family

Hifn announced the full availability and production of the 8450, the newest member to the company’s FlowThrough security processor family. Hifn’s FlowThrough Architecture is the cornerstone of a family of applied service processor solutions that fundamentally change the way security is built into the network as well as provide a platform for continuous data protection.

Designed for Gigabit Ethernet Networking applications, the 8450 ensures data security, integrity and simultaneous support for multiple security protocols as well as the latest encryption and authentication algorithms. It offers the simplicity of a “bump-in-the-wire” architecture and provides a complete security solution on a single chip. The 8450 is optimized for integration into session border controllers, VPNs, security gateway appliances, server motherboards and secure Network Interface Cards.

The 8450 supports two full-duplex Gigabit Ethernet ports and delivers 4 Gb/s simultaneous IPsec and IP Compression protocol processing for typical packet flows. Up to 1,000,000 Security Associations (SAs) are supported with external DDR2 SDRAM.
