About CryptoSwift

Rainbow’s eCommerce performance and security acceleration technology is the industry’s leading solution for cryptographic acceleration, providing fast and secure transactions over the Internet while dramatically reducing Web server and network appliance response time. The CryptoSwift family of eCommerce acceleration solutions accelerates the public-key cryptographic functions of popular security protocols such as SSL/TLS, WAP/WTLS, S/MIME, and IKE/IPSec, and others. SSL acceleration technology was first developed by Rainbow and improves server response time for secure connections by freeing the Web servers and network appliances to perform other tasks, especially during peak load and heavy traffic periods. Since 1997, Rainbow’s CryptoSwift is the SSL acceleration solution of choice for fast, secure online transactions for B2B and B2C environments of all types and sizes.

CryptoSwift has won more major industry awards for excellence than any other SSL acceleration solution, including a prestigious “Well-Connected Award” for best SSL accelerator and “Editor’s Choice Award” for best internal SSL accelerator from Network Computing, a “Blue Ribbon Award” from Network World as the industry’s top cryptographic accelerator and two American Electronics Association (AEA) High Tech Awards for “Innovative Product/Technology” in 2000 and 2001. In addition, Rainbow’s NetSwift2012 appliance for SSL/WTLS (wired/wireless) security acceleration was a 2001 Editor’s Choice from Communications News.
