-- SafeNet's SafeEnterprise(TM) SONET/SDH Encryptors were shown to deliver better performance for high-speed, low-latency applications such as disaster recovery, storage area networks, and metro and campus applications than one of the industry's highest performing IPSec routers. The testing, conducted by Rochester Institute of Technology's Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences, confirms that SafeNet's network security devices provide high speed encryption without compromising fiber optic speed or performance. Dr. Luther Troell from RIT's Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences said of the results, "The SafeNet SONET Encryptor outperformed in all areas we tested."
-- SafeNet launched Sentinel(R) RMS, a comprehensive rights management solution that streamlines the license management process. Sentinel RMS dramatically reduces or eliminates many of the costs normally associated with license management by automating this process and integrating it with back-office systems. Sentinel RMS includes components for design, automated fulfillment, and ongoing management. This product is also the only software licensing solution that provides secure role-based management, allowing software vendors to easily separate the functions of license creation, generation, and delivery. It has been selected by some well-known companies including certain appliance manufacturers that are using RMS to improve their customer service and cost structures by leveraging the efficiencies of the Internet to more quickly and effectively deliver added capabilities to deployed products.
-- SafeNet launched Sentinel Hardware Keys, a software rights management token that protects software vendors from unauthorized use or distribution of their products. Sentinel Hardware Keys are the first and only hardware tokens to incorporate public key cryptography, AES encryption and internal authentication. The result is an ultra-secure hardware token that still offers the highly flexible licensing for which the SafeNet Sentinel product line is known.
