LAS VEAGS -- Network- and storage-security market leader Hifn™ (Nasdaq: HIFN), announced today a new FlowThrough security processor designed for Gigabit Ethernet Networking applications. The HIPP III 8450 ensures data security, integrity and simultaneous support for multiple security protocols as well as the latest encryption and authentication algorithms. The HIPP III 8450 offers the simplicity of a “bump-in-the-wire” architecture and provides a complete security solution on a single chip. The 8450 is optimized for integration into security gateway appliances, server motherboards and secure NIC’s.

Hifn’s unique FlowThrough architecture enables the 8450 security processor to sit directly in the data path and accelerate the entire security protocol for high-performance, low-latency capabilities in Ethernet networking equipment.
