RAINBOW DEBUTS THE NEXT GENERATION OF SSL VPN APPLIANCE.

Rainbow Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:RNBO), a provider of digital content security, transaction security for the Internet and secure remote access solutions, has debuted the NetSwift iGate Pro and NetSwift iGate Team, the next generation of Rainbow's SSL VPN appliance family of secure remote access products. The NetSwift iGate Pro, developed for mid-size enterprise deployments, and the NetSwift iGate Team, designed for small businesses, deliver full SSL VPN security for client/server applications in addition to secure access to Web-enabled applications via the NetSwift iGate's SSL encryption.

The next generation NetSwift iGate is the industry's only SSL VPN appliance for secure remote access that ships with fully integrated, optional support for client-based security hardware -- Rainbow's iKey USB authentication token. Competitive SSL VPN solutions carry a premium price for customers and require significant additional installation and configuration time in order to include third party hardware authentication solutions.

The NetSwift iGate Pro and Team SSL VPN appliances include new VPX technology, developed by Rainbow, that allows companies to access, manage and secure both Web and client/server applications through a single SSL VPN appliance. The NetSwift iGate Pro and Team SSL VPN appliances also provide remote management and scalable configuration, allowing customers to purchase additional capacity and iKey tokens as their needs change.

"In today's market, SSL VPNs feature expansion is occurring at a rapid pace, with each platform vendor attempting to gain a competitive edge. For enterprises making an SSL VPN purchase decision, this task can be quite bewildering," said Michael Suby, senior research analyst, Stratecast Partners, a division of Frost & Sullivan. "In our view, making a purchase decision primarily on feature set is inadequate. The vendor's experience in successfully delivering security products and its financial stability must also be on the top of the decision checklist."

"This next generation of our NetSwift iGate product family extends the powerful secure remote access features we developed for Web-based applications to securing access to popular client/server applications that many organizations continue to use," said Shawn Abbott, president, Rainbow eSecurity. "This new functionality makes the NetSwift iGate an ideal solution for secure remote access regardless of the type of application. Organizations gain centralized access control over users and the NetSwift iGate features integrated SSO, SSL and application layer security."

The Keys to Remote Access Security

The NetSwift iGate Pro is ideal for mid-size organizations and branch offices of large enterprises seeking to reduce costs associated with using a managed VPN service or running an in-house IPSec VPN. NetSwift iGate Pro comes bundled with 70 concurrent user licenses and 70 iKeys, and can scale to support a maximum of 1,000 concurrent users. This appliance uses Rainbow's SSL acceleration technology and supports HTTP compression. Organizations can use the NetSwift iGate Pro to protect internal Web pages and provide fine-grained access control by authorized users.

The NetSwift iGate Team is designed for use in small-business environments, start-ups or even in departments within larger organizations. This is Rainbow's entry-level SSL VPN solution and includes 40 concurrent licenses and 40 iKeys, and can support up to 100 concurrent users.

The NetSwift iGate Pro and Team are available immediately. Both appliance versions come with an optional VPX upgrade option to enable access to both Web and client/server applications. All versions also support high availability through a back-up unit. Contact Rainbow at sales@rainbow.com for pricing details.

The NetSwift iGate was the "2002 Security Product of the Year" as selected by the readers of Access Control and Security Systems Magazine. The NetSwift iGate is also a "Codie Award" finalist for "Best Security Solution" from the Software Information & Industry Association (SIIA).
