Sensory Networks and Intoto Partner to Deliver Industry Leading Intrusion Prevention Solution for OEM Vendors

Sensory's NodalCore®-Accelerated Intoto IntruPro™ IPS Provides Unprecedented Signature Capacity and Multi-Gigabit Performance

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2006 -- INTEROP CONFERENCE -- Sensory Networks, the leader in acceleration technology for network security applications, today announced that it has partnered with Intoto, the leading provider of integrated security, wireless and voice software platforms to networking equipment manufacturers, to deliver high-performance intrusion prevention systems (IPS) for enterprise applications. The new NodalCore-accelerated Intoto IntruPro IPS enables OEM vendors of networking and security products, such as Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliances, to deliver high-speed, multi-function platforms supporting enterprise-class IPS functionality, with significantly reduced development cycles and lower costs.

As security threats rise in enterprise environments, OEMs require advanced content management and security solutions for security appliances. Intoto's unique patent-pending, application-aware Inline IPS technology, accelerated with the NodalCore hardware content co-processor, provides wire speed performance together with greater accuracy of reduced false alarms.

"Intoto's IntruPro IPS software represents the next generation in intrusion prevention systems, and enables complete proactive intrusion prevention," said Sab Gosal, VP of Marketing at Sensory Networks. "Combining this technology with our NodalCore acceleration engine provides OEM vendors a multi-gigabit performance Intrusion Prevention solution that is not only easy to integrate but also raises the bar in price versus performance benchmarking."

Sensory's patent-pending NodalCore acceleration platform has been optimized to accelerate network intrusion detection and prevention. It provides exact matches for up to 10,000,000 expressions and arbitrary length search context for greater flexibility and accuracy. Both speed and performance are independent of pattern volume or complexity, with silicon logic custom designed for regular expression processing.

"Enterprises are demanding increasingly sophisticated intrusion prevention solutions, yet are frequently unwilling to sacrifice overall network performance for enhanced security," said Doug Makishima, VP of marketing at Intoto. "Sensory's NodalCore security acceleration platform in combination with our IntruPro software enables network equipment OEMs to rapidly and cost-effectively deliver a full-featured, next generation IPS solution with leading enterprise-class performance."

Intoto's NSS-approved IntruPro includes a sophisticated management platform, signature updates and system certification. Based on a unique application-aware architecture, IntruPro employs stateful application engines and a combination of advanced detection techniques to deliver highly accurate intrusion detection and prevention with a minimum of false alarms. In addition to its signature-based detection and protocol and traffic anomaly monitoring, IntruPro also provides a learning mode feature that creates a profile for all traffic connections for enhanced security.
