SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Intoto, the leading provider of security software for network infrastructure equipment, today announced that its iGatewayT Firewall has set a new industry performance standard as the first firewall to deliver up to 16 Gigabits per second (Gbps) throughput using Quad-Core IntelR XeonR processor 5300 series.

iGatewayT Firewall is a comprehensive security solution that provides stateful packet inspection, content filtering, protection from internal and external attacks, traffic redirection, and easy-to-use configuration management. With multi-gigabit networks fast becoming a standard requirement for corporate and service provider networks, there is a need for security that won't slow down networks with a large number of connections. With this new performance breakthrough, iGateway Firewall delivers the highest level of security and performance on standard general-purpose processors, enabling OEMs to offer high-value price-to-performance products.

"Security and performance go hand-in-hand and increased bandwidth requirements demand significantly improved security performance," said Sathyan Iyengar, president and CEO, Intoto. "We have leveraged general purpose multi-core processors very effectively to deliver the performance often found only in higher cost ASIC-based solutions. With this offering, OEMs can meet customers' stringent performance demands on their infrastructure equipment while reducing their development costs."
