Netronome Systems Named a Winner of Info Security Products Guide 2008 Tomorrow's Technology Today Award

Netronome SSL Inspector™ Recognized as a Top Product in the Large Enterprise Security Solution Category

PITTSBURGH, PA--(Marketwire - May 19, 2008) - Netronome Systems, Inc., a leading developer of high-performance intelligent network processing solutions that provide content flow analysis, deep packet inspection and application acceleration for network and security appliances, today announced that Info Security Products Guide has named the Netronome SSL Inspector a winner of the 2008 Tomorrow's Technology Today award. This prestigious award recognizes information security vendors with advanced, groundbreaking network security solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of information security. The Netronome SSL Inspector was selected by the editorial group of Info Security Products Guide who focused on technologies that are making the most positive impact on security in today's highly sophisticated and blended attacks environment.

SSL-encrypted traffic has grown to constitute a significant percentage of data transmitted to and from the enterprise. At the same time, network-based threats, such as spam, viruses, malware, phishing, identity theft, data theft and other forms of cyber crime, have become commonplace. The Netronome SSL Inspector enables the identification of these threats by providing decrypted plaintext of encrypted communications to network and security appliances. The Netronome SSL Inspector is the industry's highest-performance SSL proxy, providing visibility into the contents of SSL-encrypted flows at gigabit rates for the largest number of flows and highest connection rate. The Netronome SSL Inspector is the first transparent SSL Proxy that increases network security while significantly minimizing deployment and operational costs by removing costly user and network configuration.

"Increased security awareness is helping organizations take a proactive approach to securing their digital resources," says Rake Narang, editor-in-chief, Info Security Products Guide. "To strategically plan their networks and proactively address security concerns, organizations need to consider the attacks and vulnerabilities they are dealing with today as well as how they should prepare their networks for tomorrow and the years to come. Nothing differentiates any product or solution more than being able to address these needs, and the companies receiving this year's Tomorrow's Technology Today award all offer superior technologies today that can help organizations plan for the security challenges ahead."

"Enterprises are under a constant barrage of inbound threats from increasingly clever assailants. Hiding these attacks within SSL-encrypted connections is a popular and growing tactic. Enterprises must be able to keep pace with these threats in order to improve security and comply with a variety of privacy regulations, and do so without compromising their network performance," said Jarrod Siket, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Netronome Systems. "Info Security Products Guide's recognition of the Netronome SSL Inspector highlights how our solution is addressing these critical concerns today, as well as expanding the possibilities for tomorrow's security and network appliances.
