Tarari and Marvell® Demonstrate Industry's First Hardware-Accelerated Anti-Virus Protection for Consumer Network Storage at CES 2007

Automatic Scanning of Data in Consumer Network Attached Storage Simplifies Protection

LAS VEGAS, NV -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 8, 2007 -- CES -- Tarari, Inc., the leader in deep content inspection silicon, today announced that it is demonstrating the industry's first hardware-accelerated anti-virus protection for consumer network storage at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2007. Tarari will show an ultra high-speed solution that inspects all data at line rates that is optimized for Marvell's® Orion Media Vault. The Marvell Orion Media Vault platform together with Tarari's award-winning Content Inspection Processor ASIC is designed to scan all data for viruses prior to being stored onto or retrieved from Network Attached Storage (NAS) systems.

Together the joint reference solution will enable consumers to take advantage of groundbreaking media vault platforms that allow users to instantly access rich multimedia and data content throughout the home without worrying about viruses spreading unchecked. Powering digital life in the home with the industry's first home-wide Quality of Service (QoS), the Marvell Orion Media Vault family offers true, uninterrupted multi-streaming performance that adds an additional layer of protection from emerging security threats.

Tarari is demonstrating the advanced anti-virus protection for Network Storage at Marvell's booth at CES. The Marvell booth is located in South Hall 3, Upper Level of the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth 30813.

"The Marvell vision of the digital lifestyle drove the development of our original Orion product family. In 2007 consumer storage devices will be even better protected by Tarari and Marvell's new advanced anti-virus solution as valuable digital assets are processed at line rates," said Dr. Simon Milner, Vice President and General Manager, Enterprise Business Unit in the Communications and Consumer Business Group at Marvell. "The combination of Tarari technology with our Orion family of Media Vault platforms further builds on our innovation in storage and connectivity to go far beyond traditional NAS technology, and we believe will deliver a protected media vault platform that brings new levels of user experience and security to the digital home."

"Tarari is excited to be partnering with Marvell to bring this anti-virus solution to the consumer marketplace," said Randy Smerik, President/CEO and co-Founder of Tarari, Inc. "Consumers are finding that they are being bombarded by increasingly malicious security threats including attempts to steal personal information and using it to perpetrate identity fraud. Now with this joint Tarari-Marvell solution consumers will be able to sleep happier in their beds at night."

The joint Tarari-Marvell reference solution is capable of powering a range of Orion Media Vault platforms, each capable of delivering simultaneous streams of rich, multimedia content seamlessly across wired and wireless networks.
