Sensory Networks Unveils New Line of Multi-Gigabit Content Security Acceleration Cards for Unified Threat Management Security Appliances

C-2000 Line Increases Performance and Memory Size of Previous Version; Able to Handle Multiple Security Applications Including A

PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Sensory Networks, the leader in acceleration technology for network security applications, today announced the first two products in its family of next-generation C-series security acceleration cards built on Sensory Networks' unique NodalCore(R) security processor technology. Capable of up to 2 Gbps throughput per PCI card, the C-2000 Ultra is the first in a range of high-performance content security accelerator cards. Rated up to 500 Mbps, the C-2000 MX is a low-cost acceleration card targeted at SMB and mid-range appliances. The company plans to introduce additional C-series cards with throughputs up to 10 Gbps through 2006.

The C-2000 product family supports massive databases of up to 10 million signatures, making it suitable for accelerating multiple applications at once. Using Sensory Networks' patent-pending CorePAKT(TM) Massive Memory Architecture (MMA) technology, full commercial Antivirus, Antispam, Antispyware, Intrusion Detection/Prevention and Content Filtering databases can exist simultaneously at wire speed. An industry first, CorePAKT enables the C-2000 family to power Unified Threat Management security appliances to run at true multigigabit line rates.

According to leading IT market research and advisory firm IDC, the UTM market reached $1.8 billion in 2004 and is projected to reach $3.4 billion in 2008, overtaking the Firewall/VPN sector. As a result, security appliance vendors are looking for ways to gain a competitive edge and increase market share by incorporating a suite of applications, which has in the past created challenges for these products to achieve high performance.

"Increasingly, network security products are struggling to keep up with faster network throughputs and the explosive growth in the number and complexity of network threats," said Matt Barrie, chief executive officer of Sensory Networks. "By using Sensory Networks' C-2000 security accelerators, our customers can build robust, adaptive security products using an off the shelf solution that can scan traffic all the way up to layer 7 at wire-speed without sacrificing accuracy."

Network security platform vendor Astaro based its powerful unified threat management product on the C-2000 product family, enabling the Astaro Security Gateway 425 to achieve wire speed virus scanning performance. Astaro's line of unified threat management appliances integrate nine forms of security to protect computer networks from a variety of threats including viruses, hackers, spam, spyware, phishing and unauthorized content.

"By building the Astaro Security Gateway on the C-2000 platform, our customers experience wire-speed throughput and the complete virus protection they need at a price unmatched in the industry today," said Jan Hichert, Chief Executive Officer of Astaro. "Sensory's ability to meet our stringent requirements around speed, memory and cost gave us the building blocks to deliver a ground-breaking product to market."

Sensory's C-2000 product line is available now and pricing starts at $499 for the C-2000 MX card in 10k quantities.
