IRE LAUNCHES ENHANCED VERSION OF SCALABLE VPN GATEWAY FAMILY.
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 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 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 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.
