New Web Application Delivery Platform Automatically Secures Access to Web Versions of PeopleSoft, SAP, Siebel and Custom Portals

Redline Networks ( today announced E|X 3670, the first Web-enabled application delivery platform to deliver more than 10,000 new SSL (secure sockets layer) connections per second, supporting even the largest transaction-oriented Web sites, enterprise portals and web applications. The E|X 3670 doubles the SSL throughput rate of previous Redline units by accelerating and offloading bulk encryption and compression, which is necessary for maintaining high throughput and secure remote access connections.

The E|X 3670 is the newest member of Redline's E|X family of enterprise application processors to address the emerging need of enterprises to secure web traffic without compromising user performance, and to secure applications without the large development effort required to rewrite HTTP applications as secure HTTPS applications. The E|X 3670 appliance also has the unique ability to intelligently determine whether ‘legitimate’ HTTP requests form part of a denial-of-service attack by assigning a legitimacy weighting to each different request based on its network behaviour.

Establishing a secure (SSL) connection and encrypting data transfers is processor-intensive, making it unfeasible to SSL-secure all site traffic, and the added latency often frustrates users to the point of abandoning SSL-secured applications. Redline addresses this problem with its E|X 3670, as it accelerates and offloads key management and bulk encryption.

Redline's 'Auto SSL' capability, a function of Redline’s OverDrive control environment, transparently rewrites user requests and responses on the fly so that browsers automatically ask for secure content without modification of the backend application. With all traffic encrypted, corporate networks can seamlessly and easily SSL-secure all traffic without having to modify their application, resulting in greater protection of their business, employee and customer data.

"Redline's SSL offload and acceleration make secured page downloads faster than previously unsecured page downloads, so users won't abandon Web applications due to slow response,” said Craig Stouffer, Vice President of Marketing at Redline Networks. “With all traffic encrypted, corporate networks will have far greater protection of their business, employee and customer data. And Redline’s Auto-SSL enables instant security for non-SSL applications.”

The E|X 3670 provides a complete server offload and security solution for business-critical Web applications and large-scale Web sites. Like other Redline platforms, the E|X 3670 secures the enterprise "Web tier" while consolidating on a single platform a broad array of Web tier functions, including data compression, load balancing, connection management, SSL processing, security, authentication and user-defined adaptive content processing. Unlike the collection of previous generation Server Load Balancers, SSL devices and other point products, the E|X 3670 does not suffer from performance degradation when performing all functions.
