RSA Conference 2008 San Francisco CA, and San Jose, California, April 7, 2008 – Interface Masters Technologies, an industry leader and innovator in networking solutions, today introduced the new PCI Express Internal Gigabit Secure Bypass product line of high-performance encryption cards designed to improve the throughput of inline Internet Security appliances, WAN Acceleration Systems, Gateways and network servers. The products improve networking appliances’ performance by independently executing encryption tasks. The onboard Cavium CN1010/CN1120 VPN Accelerator increases total system throughput by processing high-level IPsec and IKE, IPv6, SSL security protocol macro commands to reduce host I/O traffic and dramatically offload the system processor.

“We are excited to launch this new PCI express product line and support our existing customers with these unique capabilities mainly for suitable for VPN appliances, Secure WEB Servers, and Secure Access devices where encryption and Bypass is required.” said Ben Askarinam, Senior VP at Interface Masters Technologies. “The Niagara 2352 Cavium based encryption product line leverages the Interface Masters smart Bypass technology and delivers gigabit data rate throughput. The Niagara 2352 product family was selected by top tier customers and is already shipping in production.”

The Niagara 2352 product line provides the following features and capabilities:

  • On board Cavium CN1010-XP & CN1120 hardware encryption acceleration - DES/3DES, AES, SHA and MD5
  • Based on Intel’s 82546 controller
  • Host offloading – TCP/IP/UDP checksum, TCP segmentation and advanced packet filtering
  • Programmable “Close” or “Open” while in the power off state
  • Programmable independent mode to function as dual Giga bit copper card
  • Two integrated PHYs for 10/100/1000 Mb/s full- and half-duplex operation
  • PCI-e x4
  • IEEE 802.3ab, 802.3u, 802.3x compliant

Availability

The Niagara 2352 Internal Gigabit Secure Bypass NIC is available now and is targeted at Internet Service Providers (ISP), Telcos, and OEMs at the critical IT sector requiring Security, UTM market, Storage Area Networks (SAN), Intrusion Detection & Prevention and WAN Acceleration.
Interface Masters Technologies is showcasing the Niagara 2352 and its complete product lines at the RSA show in San Francisco April 7-11 Booth: 446.

CeBIT 2008 Hanover, Germany and San Jose, California, March 5, 2008 – Interface Masters Technologies, an industry leader and innovator in networking solutions, today introduced at the CeBIT show its advanced Modular Intelligent External Network Bypass system for the In-line Network Appliance market. This innovative Modular Intelligent Network Bypass has extensive management capabilities and allows flexibility by supporting four independent interface segments in various combinations. Each segment, copper, single mode fiber and multi-mode fiber offers full Bypass functionality, without interrupting the communication session. This includes re-routing the networking traffic automatically upon the need to take an in-line network appliance off the network for maintenance, or perform failover in case of malfunction due to software crash or power failure. The unique design and its Telco Grade quality, Carrier Class elevate the network reliability to the next level and enable avoiding interruption in internet communications session.

“Following the recent introduction of our first Intelligent External Network Bypass, Niagara 2297, Interface Masters is committed to continuously develop high performance and innovative failover devices to answer the market needs,” said Ben Askarinam, Senior VP at Interface Masters Technologies. “We are pleased to introduce the advanced Niagara 2298, powerful Modular Intelligent Network Bypass product, which enables graceful failover of in-line networking appliances. This modular Bypass features extreme flexibility and supports a mix of interfaces including copper to fiber conversion, which provides significant savings to the customers whenever fiber support is required.”

The Niagara 2298 Modular Intelligent Network Bypass guarantees uninterrupted network on each of its four segments, in spite of power failures or system crash. This solution increases dramatically the internet service reliability and reduces the network down time. The Niagara 2298 system is currently being evaluated by customers such as Telcos and by major security in-line networking appliances OEM vendors. The Network Bypass system offers IT managers and Service Providers the ability to proactively disconnect Networking Appliances and put them offline. This function is needed in order to update the hardware/ firmware or upload new rules and signatures, for example Intrusion Detection & Prevention, Unified Threat Management, WAN acceleration, Firewall, e-mail server, Load balancer, and VPN gateway.
The Niagara 2298 Modular Intelligent Network Bypass is feature-rich and provides the following capabilities:

  • Supports up to four modules in any combination of Copper, MM Fiber and SM fiber
  • Cost-effective flexibility – allows copper to fiber conversion capability which reduces cost of fiber optics support
  • Supports 10/100/1000 base, 1 Giga bit, TX (Copper), SX (Multi mode) & LX (Single mode)
  • Supports Test Access Port (TAP), which is primarily used for optimizing the IT managers’ ability to easily and passively monitor network links. The TAP port can be programmed per the segment that it monitors
  • Plug and play system installation - due to its self generating heartbeat no drivers or additional software installation are required
  • Active bypass capabilities that provide maximum flexibility and guarantees an uninterrupted communications session while its passive bypass capabilities provide maximum reliability
  • Two redundant external power supplies for maximum up-time
  • Very low power consumption due to efficient power design
  • Fan-less system design, which guarantees greater reliability
  • Extensive management capabilities including support for WEB GUI, HTTPS, SNMP, e-mail notifications, and Command Line Interface (CLI)

Availability

The Niagara 2298 system is available now and is targeted at Internet Service Providers (ISP), Telcos, and OEMs at the critical IT sector requiring Security, UTM market, Storage Area Networks (SAN), Intrusion Detection & Prevention and WAN Acceleration.

Interface Masters Technologies is showcasing the Modular Intelligent Bypass system and its complete product lines at CeBIT 2008, Hanover, Germany March 4-8, Hall 13 Stand D34 Booth #A4.
