Ingrian's New Hardware Platforms for Its DataSecure Appliances

Ingrian Networks announces a new family of hardware platforms for the company's flagship DataSecure Appliances, offering the highest level of security available today in a commercial encryption solution. The new DataSecure Appliances, the 100 Series and 400 Series, have achieved FIPS 140-2 compliance and Common Criteria EAL2 validation, and perform transaction rates of 100,000 encryptions per second increasing performance by more than 266%. The new platforms offer users the ability to use one encryption solution for FIPS and non-FIPS environments, and centralize all cryptographic processing to deliver performance robust enough for even the most demanding batch processing and high-volume online transaction processing environments.

DataSecure 100 Series and 400 Series appliances handle 50,000 and 100,000 encryptions per second, respectively. Through load balancing capabilities, Ingrian makes it easy to add additional appliances and boost scalability as performance needs dictate. By offering CPU-intensive cryptographic processing from disparate servers and databases, DataSecure can also restore server and database performance to optimal levels resulting in less waiting for information and higher resource utilization. Designed specifically for business-critical processing, DataSecure features replication, health checking, and disaster recovery capabilities.

Ingrian DataSecure provides an intelligent way to protect critical data from both internal and external threats. Featuring dedicated hardware appliances and patent-pending cryptography software, Ingrian's solutions deliver capabilities for granular encryption, seamless integration, and centralized key management including:
- Retailers, financial institutions, and payment processors in adhering to card issuer security policies like the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.
- Organizations around the world seeking to comply with privacy legislation, such as California SB1386, the Europe Union Data Protection Directive, and many others.
- Financial institutions seeking to comply with Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.
- Government agencies striving to adhere to the Federal Information Security Management Act.
