Tarari Gets Secure

Tarari announced the fifth generation of its Regular Expression Content Processor (RegEx 5)

LAS VEGAS -- Tarari, Inc., the award-winning acceleration company, today announced the fifth generation of its Regular Expression Content Processor (RegEx 5). Tarari's "Content Processor" products are ASICs, production boards, and embedded software components that are designed to snap in to networking, appliance, blades, and server systems.

Internet attacks continue to increase in number and sophistication, wreaking more havoc than ever before. According to IDC, "Today, more sophisticated attackers, often organized crime, are increasingly using worms and viruses to obtain credit card numbers, bank account information, and other personal information to perpetrate identity theft. IDC believes this profit-driven motivation will cause the number of attacks to increase in sophistication, frequency, and severity."

Recognizing the need to stop every threat from reaching networks, vendors strive to offer more powerful solutions throughout the infrastructure. IDC sees revenue for XML and Network Security products exceeding $21 billion by 2008, with the unified threat management (UTM) appliance market alone topping $5 billion by 2009. To ensure their solutions can keep up with the ever-growing and evolving threats, OEMs turn to solutions from Tarari.

In a separate release:

LAS VEGAS -- Tarari, the award-winning acceleration company, and Reconnex, the expert in discovering both known and unknown electronic risks, today announced a partnership to incorporate Tarari Content Processors into Reconnex iGuard, the first information security appliance to offer real-time content analysis at network speeds. Tarari's "Content Processor" products are ASICs, production boards, and embedded software components that are designed to snap in to networking, appliance, blades, and server systems. Reconnex will be demonstrating its Tarari-accelerated iGuard solution in the Tarari booth, #575 at this year's Interop, May 2-4.

Eliminating the "insider threat," or as research firm IDC calls it, "outbound content compliance," will become a $1.9 billion market in 2009. Reconnex enables enterprises to know with certainty what content enters and leaves their networks and to quickly capture, identify, and remediate both known and unknown threats to compliance, competitive advantage, corporate governance, and critical infrastructure. With the addition of Tarari's acceleration technology, Reconnex will be able to offer its customers improved accuracy and performance, and greater flexibility in how vital information is tagged in real-time for later retrieval.

"With the greater performance offered by Tarari's acceleration technology, we can provide our customers with a variety of value-added capabilities beyond identifying threats," said Dr. Ratinder Ahuja, COO and CTO of Reconnex. "More intelligent tagging capabilities and the ability to tag unique patterns in real-time enable accurate retrieval of critical information for ad hoc risk discovery. Tarari's technical leadership and proven track record were matched by a tremendous responsiveness to our needs."

"According to IDC, large enterprises see the biggest source of threats coming from inside their organizations," said Randy Smerik, CEO of Tarari, Inc. "Vendors such as Reconnex have recognized that meeting these threats requires horsepower that general-purpose processors simply can't deliver. Tarari Content Processors deliver the plug-in horsepower these vendors need to stay ahead of the threat curve."
