Borland licenses Centicom's Security Builder toolkit.

Certicom Corp. (TSX: CIC), Mississauga, Ont., an authority for strong, efficient cryptography, has licensed Security Builder(R) SSL(TM) developer toolkit to Borland Software Corporation. An existing customer, Borland continues to choose Certicom products to ensure it has the most up-to-date and efficient security in its VisiBroker(R) CORBA(R) infrastructure solution, including the latest features, certifications and support for new versions of operating systems and platforms. With Certicom toolkits, Borland can offer its VisiBroker customers strong, standardized security.

"By leveraging the expertise at Certicom, we can implement robust security components that meet all of the necessary industry standards and certifications - ensuring our VisiBroker customers have the latest encryption and authentication requirements covered," said Raj Sehgal, senior director of product marketing, Borland. "Certicom's Security Builder SSL technology provides the security protocol and mechanisms for our secure middleware products, helping enable us to focus on our core business of delivering industry-leading software that drives maximum business value for our customers."

In a survey conducted at the Certicom ECC conference last November, developers cited the need to address security holes and stay current with requirements as two of their most pressing security issues. They also said they see security as a way to enhance their products. Borland and other enterprise software providers realize the value of promoting strong security in their products - and the benefits of working with an expert like Certicom to ensure they use the most efficient and effective security implementations.

"Enterprises and government organizations know they need strong security but are willing to leave the implementation details up to their solution providers. Increasingly, those providers are turning to the experts like Certicom," said Ian McKinnon, president and CEO of Certicom. "We help companies like Borland build the latest security requirements into their products so they can get on with their business."

Security Builder SSL is part of the comprehensive Certicom Security Architecture, which provides a bridge between legacy crypto systems and new standards such as elliptic curve cryptography. It gives developers the flexibility to standardize code among different security environments and platforms - maximizing code re-use and portability. This flexibility also means developers will not need to redesign their solutions to meet future government crypto requirements.
