Ingrian updates encryption appliance line

High-end DataSecure 400 Series can encrypt 100,000 credit cards per second

Ingrian Networks announced it has updated its DataSecure encryption appliance line most commonly used for credit-card encryption, adding the high-end 400 Series and discontinuing the 300 Series, while keeping the low-end 100 Series with enhancements.

The high-end DataSecure 400 Series can encrypt 100,000 credit cards per second, about twice the range of the 300 Series being discontinued, according to Ingrian's vice president of product development, Derek Tumulak. The 1ow-end DataSecure 100 Series, which in the past encrypted at about 11,000 credit cards per second, can now attain closer to 50,000 on a new generation of hardware.

In addition, Ingrian has submitted both the 100 and 400 Series of encryption appliances for lab-testing review under the U.S. government's Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 cryptographic compliance program and the internationally accepted Common Criteria product-evaluation program.

"You have to have FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria for government contracts now," Tumulak says.

Ingrian is seeking FIPS 140-2 cryptographic Level II for "tamper-evident certification" and the Common Criteria EAL 2, a test-review level that indicates the product works exactly according to submitted documentation.

The Ingrian encryption products have been in FIPS and Common Criteria test review at an accredited lab for close to a year and the company expects to be able to release the official results soon.

Tumulak said the Ingrian encryption devices are typically deployed close to the credit-card data sources, including file servers and mainframe. The DataSecure appliance line supports both public- and private-key encryption, and a range of algorithms, including the Advanced Encryption Standard.

The DataSecure 100 Series starts at US$15,000 and the 400 Series ranges between US$27,000 to US$35,000.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
