Intoto Provides Security Support for IDT's Communications Processor

4/8/2003 - IDTTM (Integrated Device Technology, Inc.; Nasdaq: IDTI), a leading communications IC company, and Intoto, Inc., the leader in embedded security software solutions, announced a partnership to provide the Intoto iGatewayTM firewall and VPN security software solution for the IDT RC32365 integrated communications processor, the first IDT processor with an on-chip security engine designed to accelerate Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) performance. This latest project extends the relationship between IDT and Intoto, who have previously worked together to support the iGateway solutions for the existing IDT InterpriseTM family of integrated processors to enable VPN- and security-enabled gateway/router designs.

“Intoto is a leading supplier of VPN/firewall software solutions with a proven track record in embedded security implementations,” said Alex Soohoo, strategic marketing manager for the IDT Internetworking Products Division. “Our InterpriseTM family of integrated communications processors coupled with Intoto’s leading software platforms provide a breadth of best-in-class solutions that reduce time to market and lower overall system cost for our customers addressing the small and medium Enterprise (SME)/small office home office (SOHO) gateway markets with VPN/firewall functionality.”

“We are excited to partner with IDT as they are fast becoming a leader in the security-enabled VPN market,” said Muthukumar Thalanayar, director, product marketing of Intoto, Inc. “The broad offering of integrated communications processors from IDT are complemented by the Intoto iGateway software package and provide our mutual customers with a strong platform for developing security solutions.”

The iGateway firewall software is a comprehensive software solution that includes the implementation of stateful inspection, access policies, application content filtering, network address translation (NAT), protection from Web traffic redirection and administrative support. It allows for the integration of key security features such as dynamic routing, QoS and load balancing for the development of comprehensive security gateways. The iGateway VPN software is an embedded IPSec implementation providing a private encapsulated network service that runs over public networks. This software package is comprised of an IPSec engine, policy manager, IKE engine and cryptographic library and has been seamlessly integrated with the Firewall and NAT modules. The iGateway Firewall and VPN security software solutions for the IDT RC32365 integrated communications processor will be available in Q2CY03.
