Corrent Unveils New Line of Purpose-Built Security Appliances Based on Microsoft ISA Server 2004

New Firewall, VPN and Caching Security Appliances Deliver High-Performance Network Security at an Affordable Price

FOSE, Washington, DC, April 6, 2005 – Today Corrent® Corporation announced a new series of purpose-built security appliances based on Microsoft Internet Security and Acceleration (ISA) Server 2004. Corrent, a leading innovator in network security, has helped secure some of the nation’s largest government and private networks. With this new line of appliances, Corrent delivers advanced network protection that is affordable and powerful, yet easy to deploy and to manage.

Corrent’s two new Microsoft ISA Server 2004 based appliances, the SR125 and the SR225, are ideal for government agencies and organizations already utilizing Microsoft applications. Delivering ISA Server 2004’s advanced application firewall, VPN and Web caching capabilities, these appliances offer unbeatable protection when securing Microsoft applications and networking environments—such as Exchange Server and Outlook Web Access.

“Effectively securing the network can be a matter of business survival or of national defense,” said Richard Takahashi, CEO of Corrent Corporation. “Our goal is to make high performance network security more accessible and affordable. Corrent’s new appliances are easy to deploy and easy to manage, making secure networks an achievable goal for a wide spectrum of agencies and organizations.”

Both new Corrent appliances are 1U rack-mountable units with multiple Gigabit interfaces, swappable hard drives, and built-in LCD panels for local status and control. The SR125 uses an Intel Pentium 4 processor for firewall processing, while the SR225 uses an Intel Xeon processor. For maximum throughput, the SR225 also includes Corrent’s ASIC-based VPN acceleration technology. According to the company’s internal tests, Corrent’s new series of appliances offers firewall and VPN throughput that is substantially greater than other ISA Server 2004-based appliances currently on the market.

“We’re absolutely committed to helping government agencies and organizations build a more secure computing infrastructure,” said Steve Brown, Director of Product Management, Security Business and Technology Unit, Microsoft Corp. “Working with companies like Corrent benefits our customers giving them more options and flexibility in how they address their security challenges.” New Firewall, VPN and Caching Security Appliances Deliver High-Performance Network Security at an Affordable Price
