Agranat Systems Releases EmWeb 5.1; New Embedded Web Server Provides Secure Access to Devices Via the Internet.

MAYNARD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 19, 1999--

Agranat Systems, Inc., providers of embedded Web technology for access and management of home, business and networking appliances, today introduced EmWeb 5.1, the most recent addition to the EmWeb family of products. EmWeb 5.1 is the first embedded Web server to be outfitted with Digest Authentication, the latest security standard for the World Wide Web. With EmWeb 5.1, OEMs, embedded engineers and end users can monitor their devices via the Internet in a protected environment.

EmWeb 5.1 runs efficiently in non-preemptive, run-to-completion environments, such as with routers and printers. EmWeb 5.1 works with any standard browser and TCP/IP stack and does not require an operating system. EmWeb 5.1 also has a remarkably small footprint, typically 25K bytes, and full support for HTTP 1.1, XML, HTML, TCN, and other rapidly changing Web standards. EmWeb 5.1 employs a unique HTML-to-C interface that integrates forms and dynamic content with embedded firmware without requiring CGI-based applications.

With EmWeb 5.1, users can be fully confident that the communication between their Web browsers and servers is secure. Digest Authentication enhances EmWeb 5.1 device management capabilities by providing a barricade of protection against outside hackers from copying a password and masquerading as a legitimate user. Digest Authentication improves upon HTTP's Basic Authentication, the previous standard for Web login, by ensuring a dual verification process; a user is identified to the Web server and the Web server to the user.

"EmWeb 5.1 is our answer to security when discussing embedded Web technology and the Internet," said Ian Agranat, president and CEO of Agranat Systems, Inc. " With EmWeb 5.1, our customers have the full benefits of embedded Web technology, with the added assurance of being in a secure Web environment. We are confident that with the question of embedded Web security answered, we will see a broader spectrum of consumers and OEMs embracing this technology."

EmWeb 5.1 is currently available.
