Cisco expands SAFE Blueprint

Wednesday, 20 November 2002, 4:32 PM EST

Cisco Systems Inc said yesterday it has added a dozen upgrades to its products with the aim of enhancing its SAFE Blueprint security strategy. Security was one of five areas identified as sexy, with much-sought short-term growth potential, by Cisco boss John Chambers in the company's last quarterly earnings call.

The company said it has upgraded its IOS software, which underpins many of its products, to support new convergence-related protocols such as SIP, as well as improving the performance of the built-in stateful inspection firewall and intrusion detection system (IDS) features.

The 2961, 3660 and 3700 series branch office routers all get new virtual private network acceleration modules that Cisco said can cut CPU time in half and increase VPN traffic speeds by up to 10 times when used in IP voice and video deployments. The performance increases are achieved with AES (advanced encryption standard) accelerator cards.
