Ingrian Networks Releases New Hardware Platform Delivering Industry's Fastest Encryption Rates
New FIPS-compliant DataSecure Appliances capable of transaction speeds up to 100,000 encryptions per second
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - October 31, 2007 - Ingrian® Networks, Inc., the leading provider of data privacy solutions, today announced a new family of hardware platforms for the company's flagship DataSecure® Appliances, offering the highest level of security available today in a commercial encryption solution. The new DataSecure Appliances, the 100 Series and 400 Series, have achieved FIPS 140-2 compliance and Common Criteria EAL2 validation, and perform transaction rates of 100,000 encryptions per second - increasing performance by more than 266%. The new platforms offer users the ability to use one encryption solution for FIPS and non-FIPS environments, and centralise all cryptographic processing to deliver performance robust enough for even the most demanding batch processing and high-volume online transaction processing environments.

"As enterprises continue to store large amounts of information in their networks, encrypting the data can become quite cumbersome and slow - taking large amounts of time or resources," said Jon Oltsik, senior analyst, information security for Enterprise Strategy Group. "Because of this, the ability to quickly encrypt data and ensure an organisation is in compliance with current legislation, it is becoming more important than ever."
DataSecure 100 Series and 400 Series appliances handle 50,000 and 100,000 encryptions per second, respectively. Through load balancing capabilities, Ingrian makes it easy to add additional appliances and boost scalability as performance needs dictate. By offering CPU-intensive cryptographic processing from disparate servers and databases, DataSecure can also restore server and database performance to optimal levels-resulting in less waiting for information and higher resource utilisation. Designed specifically for business-critical processing, DataSecure features replication, health checking, and disaster recovery capabilities.
"Ingrian consistently strives to make compliance with legislative and industry mandates as simple as possible for its customers," said Michael Howard, CEO of Ingrian. "Offering the fastest encryption speeds available and recently achieving FIPS 140-2 compliance and Common Criteria EAL2 validation, demonstrates Ingrian's commitment to providing the most efficient encryption platforms in accordance to cryptographic standards. We have received tremendous interest from the government sector for our enhanced performance features and current FIPS solutions, and expect a significant increase in demand now that we can offer our full-line of encryption products and have achieved market-leading performance numbers."
