Sensory Networks Unveils New High-Performance, Low-Cost Content Security PCI Accelerator Card

The New NodalCore C-2000 SX Will Deliver up to 500 Mbps Throughput and Price-Positioned as the Ideal Solution for the SME Market

PALO ALTO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 28, 2006 -- Sensory Networks, the leader in acceleration technology for network security applications, today announced the latest product in the C-Series content security accelerator product line built on Sensory Networks' patented NodalCore® security processor technology. Capable of up to 500 Mbps throughput per card, the NodalCore C-2000 SX extends Sensory's hardware acceleration line right down to the SME market.

The C-Series PCI cards are built using reconfigurable technology that can be reprogrammed even after units have been deployed in the field, meaning performance enhancements and security updates can be delivered throughout the product lifecycle. Recent advances by Sensory Networks have increased performance in their existing NodalCore C-2000 MX and Ultra products to such an extent that they now compete in higher-end markets. The NodalCore C-2000 SX delivers Sensory's leading security technology to the SME market at a competitive price point.

"SME appliance vendors must deliver many security features, performance guarantees and an affordable solution," said Jeff Wilson, Principle Analyst for Infonetics Research. "This latest solution from Sensory Networks really targets that sweet spot."

The NodalCore C-2000 SX gives complete access to the industry's largest suite of security applications, the Sensory Networks Application Ecosystem. "We are proud to announce the latest addition to our C-Series product line," said Sab Gosal, VP of Marketing for Sensory Networks. "The new NodalCore C-2000 SX card takes advantage of our increases in performance to provide the ideal SME appliance security solution."

The NodalCore C-2000 SX is available from $399 in volume when bundled with applications, from mid-September.
