Sun polishes network computer security
Sun Microsystems has beefed up the security of its network computers with two improved Sun Crypto Accelerator (SCA) boards that provide hardware-based cryptography.
By implementing the cryptography directly in silicon rather than through software algorithms, the SCA 500 and SCA 4000 components can improve data throughput rates.
"IT managers need fast, secure cryptography solutions in two key areas," said Andy Ingram, Sun's vice president of processors and networking products, in a statement.
