IRE LAUNCHES ENHANCED VERSION OF SCALABLE VPN GATEWAY FAMILY.

Information Resource Engineering, Inc. (IRE) (Nasdaq:IREG), a provider of Virtual Private Network technology and solutions for secure business communications, has launced version 4.0 of the SafeNet/Speed family of VPN gateways. This latest version features improved performance and greater ease of use, including a simplified configuration process to ensure interoperability in multi-vendor environments. The product is shipping to corporate, government, and financial industry clients.

The SafeNet/Speed family offers gateways at three performance levels, satisfying the market need for a low-end, cost-effective dedicated gateway, while providing an easy and inexpensive upgrade path to higher end VPN solutions. SafeNet/Speed's affordable cost, scalable platform, and flexible design make it an effective solution for organizations of all sizes and with a broad range of network requirements.

As their performance requirements increase, users can upgrade their SafeNet/Speed gateway with a SafeNet DSP-enabled "Power Board" and a simple firmware enhancement. Version 4.0 adds new capabilities to SafeNet/Speed that further simplify installation and modifications. Pre-configured pre-shared key capability simplifies installation for end users who want to drop the gateway into their existing network infrastructure and ensure interoperability with IPSec devices from major networking vendors. SafeNet/Speed v. 4.0 also makes it easier for users to change modes, such as gateway to host, and secret key to public key.

"IRE's broad customer base includes organizations with a wide range of network configurations, including dynamic environments where applications change and grow quickly," said Sherry Quinn, marketing director for IRE. "SafeNet/Speed offers industry-leading security and high performance to satisfy the most demanding network requirements, while its ease-of-use and scalability provide organizations with a VPN solution that is deployable and extendable."

The SafeNet/Speed family features three VPN gateways to suit a wide range of applications and performance requirements:

Speed-FE

Speed-FE provides an entry level, upgradeable VPN server solution for small to large companies with T-1 or lower bandwidth access for remote office connectivity and small remote access communication needs (up to 100 sessions).

Speed-RFE

Speed-RFE is an upgradeable VPN gateway designed for small to large companies with 10Mbps bandwidth requirements for server or host security, site-to-site, and remote access applications (up to 1,000 sessions).

Speed-SFE

Speed-SFE is a high-end VPN gateway designed for companies with T-3 high-throughput networks and large volume traffic environments (up to 4,000 sessions).

Users can upgrade from Speed-FE to Speed-RFE by adding a Power Board featuring the SafeNet DSP chip co-developed by IRE and Analog Devices, Inc., which offers hardware-based acceleration of cryptographic functions. Additional upgrades can be performed by easy firmware downloads.

Available for Plug & Play or as Part of Turnkey Solution

SafeNet/Speed may be purchased as a standalone "plug and play" unit for organizations who simply require a high-performance VPN gateway, or as part of IRE's SafeNet Enterprise family of products, for those who need a turnkey VPN solution that includes clients and management.

Pricing and Availability

Pricing for the SafeNet/Speed family begins at $1295 for SafeNet/Speed-FE. SafeNet/Speed-RFE and SafeNet/Speed-SFE are priced at $4995 and $9995, respectively. Performance level upgrades start at $1295.
