Interphase and TeamF1 Optimize Network Security for Embedded Market

9/24/2004 - Interphase Corporation (NASDAQ: INPH), an international supplier of next-generation networking technologies, and TeamF1, Inc., a leading provider of technologically-advanced, high-quality embedded software products and services, announced a partnership to provide comprehensive hardware and software security acceleration solutions targeted at optimizing the performance of the burgeoning embedded security market.

According to International Data Corporation (IDC) research, the market for network security hardware, software, and services is forecasted to reach $45 billion by 2006. “As network traffic volumes continue to rise, many of our customers are under market pressures to offer quick and effective solutions to the network bottleneck issues created by today’s VPNs, gateways, secure routers and firewalls,” said Randall McComas, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Interphase Corporation. “The combination of Interphase security acceleration hardware and TeamF1 software provides them with a plug and play hardware and software solution that increases their network efficiency and response times by offloading bandwidth intensive security protocol processing from their host CPU.”

This partnership brings to market complete end-to-end network security solutions by combining Interphase security acceleration cards including the 45NS and 55NS, and TeamF1 software products for embedded networking and security, enabling optimized network security solutions to be easily integrated into a variety of network environments. Both hardware and software are highly configurable and capable of addressing a variety of system functions resulting in improved network efficiency and response times, faster development times, and reduced time to market. These solutions are designed to add value to the Internet, telecommunications and data communications, networking, industrial automation and control, and aerospace and defense markets.

“TeamF1 is focused on providing highly-configurable, lean, and reliable drop-in security components that shorten time-to-revenue cycles of complex embedded applications,” said Mukesh Lulla, President, TeamF1, Inc. “Interphase hardware accelerators complement our V-IPSecure and SSLimSecure products, and the TeamF1 and Interphase combined solutions enable us to continue delivering flexible, cost-effective security solutions to our customers.”
