Austin, TX — June 15, 2005 — Britestream Networks, the leading provider of 100 percent SSL offload network security solutions, announced today its SSL offload network interface card (NIC) won a Best of Show award last week at the Networld + Interop conference held in Tokyo. With more than 300 companies competing to win awards in one of 16 award categories, Britestream’s SSL NIC won a Special Prize in the PCs, Servers, Storage, Peripherals (Hardware) division. Britestream demonstrated its SSL solution with Universe Electron Corporation (UEC), its recently announced Japanese distribution partner.
Part of MediaLive International, NetWorld+Interop is the leading destination for networking technology buyers and sellers. The Best of Show Product Award is given to the most significant and promising products demonstrated at the show. Award selections were made by a panel of expert judges, as well as by a vote of show attendees. Winners were announced at an awards ceremony on June 8.
“This award is especially meaningful because the judges were end-users, who see the need for a solution like ours,” said Nadia Mansour, vice president of worldwide sales at Britestream Networks. “Additionally, Japan is one of our primary markets and with great partners like UEC, we look forward to our continued growth in Asia.”
Britestream’s solution is the first SSL/TLS security NIC that is completely self-contained and manages all facets of SSL/TLS processing on a single PCI card. It is a groundbreaking new concept that is resetting the bar for Internet security. By processing data in real time directly in the network stream, Britestream technology handles secure data – completely, autonomously and transparently – freeing up systems to handle the tasks they were designed for. The Britestream solution offers plug-and-play simplicity and uncompromised performance with fortified protection.
