SafeNet Announces Carrier Grade QuickSec 5.0

SafeNet, a global player in the information security space and now affiliated under common management with Aladdin Knowledge Systems‚ has announced the general availability of QuickSec 5.0, a carrier grade IPsec toolkit that offers multi-core support, integrated with Cavium Networks OCTEON Multi-core MIPS64 processors.

QuickSec 5.0 is a complete IPsec and IKEv1/ IKEv2 software toolkit that enables developers to integrate industrial-strength and standards-based security into high-bandwidth networking applications. QuickSec 5.0 is offered as a server toolkit for telecommunications and networking applications and as a client toolkit for mobile and remote networking devices.

Carriers are extremely demanding customers as a result of large established customer bases, the quality of service requirements imposed by corporate customers, experience dealing with the pain of service disruption and customer service issues, and market dynamics demanding a combination of rapid introduction of new services and careful cost management.

To meet the needs of carriers, QuickSec 5.0 offers optimised software supporting the latest hardware, including Cavium OCTEON chips and multi-core processors. It is interoperable having been exhaustively tested through industry certifications such as ICSA, TAHI, and VPNC. The toolkit uses well-tested source code that has passed numerous test cases before release, as well as extensive documentation including one-thousand five hundred pages of reference manuals as per company claims.

QuickSec 5.0 is complemented by an experienced support team to enable rapid time-to-market for customer problems, effectively diagnosing and resolving issues in the field. Going further, QuickSec 5.0 allows developers with multi-core platforms to easily scale down on different cores optimised to fully utilise the available hardware—combined with effective customer support to ensure smooth product development.

Rana Gupta, business head, India & SAARC, SafeNet, said, "Developers, who need to develop high-bandwidth applications, can use QuickSec 5.0, with features like linear multi-core scaling combined with an IPsec control plane based on the IKEv1/ IKEv2 protocols, including features such as multiple authentication."
