Tarari Awarded Product of the Year for Its Advanced Security Device

T9000 Selected by Premier Design Resource analogZONE

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 29, 2007 -- Tarari, Inc., the leader in deep content inspection silicon, today announced that its T9000 Multi-Core Content Processor has been awarded the 2006 Product of the Year for Best Security Product by analogZONE, the fast-growing webzine for electronic design engineers that reviews hundreds of products each year.

"Tarari's combination of RegEx and security processing on a single, 5-Watt chip represents both a significant technical achievement and a great value for designers needing this kind of functionality in their box, blade, or subsystem," said Lee Goldberg, senior technical editor of networkZONE. "Tarari has also done a swell job of working with leading software vendors to create a very large ecosystem of commercially available turnkey software packages for anti-spam, anti-virus and intrusion protection that are greatly accelerated by Tarari's technology. Besides greatly easing the workload of system developers, it opens up options not available with some other security products."

"analogZONE provides one of the most in-depth analyses found anywhere in the industry, and to win this prestigious award is a tremendous honor that reflects the outstanding efforts of the entire team at Tarari," said Gary Smerdon, chief marketing officer at Tarari.

Shipping since May 2006, the T9000 Content Processor family features optimized versions of nine of the most CPU-intensive algorithms found in the enterprise and include both gigabit and multi-gigabit solutions. Tarari's products, which includes boards, software and now ASICs has already been selected by major OEMs, ODMs and ISVs in the XML switch and appliance markets as well as in network security markets such as: UTM (Unified Threat Management), intrusion detection and prevention (IDS/IPS) and Anti-Spam.

Any application that needs to scan, parse or filter data can also benefit from T9000 Content Processors, which are ideally suited for applications such as content-based routing (CBR) and switching, application firewalls and security gateways, web acceleration, content filtering, anti-virus, regulatory compliance, database interfaces, and secure archiving.
