IRVINE, Calif., - Rainbow Technologies, Inc., (Nasdaq: RNBO), a leading provider of digital content and transaction security for SSL VPNs, secure remote access and software anti-piracy today announced that it is working with Microsoft Corp. on a hardware appliance for Microsoft’s new Windows Rights Management Servicesä (RMS), an information protection technology for Windows Server 2003 that helps enterprises and organisations safeguard their sensitive digital information from unauthorised use.

To provide flexibility to meet customers’ deployment requirements, Microsoft is developing a hardware appliance that will enable customers to manage RMS operational services without connectivity to the Internet. Rainbow is working with Microsoft to complete the design and development of this deployment solution component. This appliance will provide the ability to enable client machines to be activated as part of the RMS trusted environment from within the network perimeter, providing a flexible deployment technology to fit how an organisation works.

“Our experience in developing high-assurance security for the U.S. government and large commercial organisations that need to secure business-critical information made us the ideal candidate for co-designing this new security appliance with Microsoft,” said Shawn Abbott, president, Rainbow eSecurity. “This new security appliance leverages our proven success in building security solutions, authentication and authorisation technologies, and content protection. We look forward to working closely with Microsoft on the best solutions for RMS security.”

Windows Rights Management Services allows information workers to distribute information within their organisations and define exactly how and under what circumstances it can be used, such as when it expires and who can open, modify, print or forward it. The ability to express and enforce document-level protection will allow organisations to internally share information more broadly, with less risk of inadvertent or intentional misuse.

“Some customers have told us they need to manage Rights Management Services operational services without Internet connectivity,” said John Manferdelli, general manager of Windows Security, Microsoft. “We’re pleased to work with Rainbow Technologies to deliver a hardware appliance to meet their deployment requirements.”
