GREENWOOD VILLAGE, CO – March 19, 2007 – Secure64 Software Corporation, a software developer with the only Genuinely Secure™ software technology and server applications, today announced the general availability of Secure64 DNS™ – DNS server software with the only built-in denial-of-service protection to help ensure Internet-dependent businesses are always accessible. Secure64 DNS is completely immune to compromise from rootkits and malware, and provides the highest authoritative DNS performance in the world at over 100,000 queries per second.
“DNS is one of the weakest links in IT infrastructures,” stated Steve Goodbarn, President, CEO and Director, Secure64. “Denial-of-service attacks and remotely exploitable security vulnerabilities threaten both the availability and integrity of existing Domain Name Systems. If DNS servers go down, the Web goes down, email goes down and entire e-businesses go down. Customers get frustrated, companies lose revenue and their brands suffer. Secure64 DNS is the only DNS server software that can withstand denial-of-service attacks and still respond to legitimate queries, up to the saturation point of a Gigabit line.”
For services providers, e-businesses and other companies whose viability depends on continuous operations and high availability, Secure64 DNS offers many unique and business-critical benefits, including:
- Improved Performance – Responds to more than 100,000 queries per second, over 10 times the capacity of a typical BIND server running on an x86 platform
- Increased Security – Cannot be compromised by rootkits or malware, which can carry out “pharming” attacks that compromise DNS zone data and result in identity theft and credit card fraud
- Increased Availability and “Up Time” – Offers high-speed packet processing and the unique capability to protect and mitigate high volume denial-of-service attacks (including UDP reflected floods)
- Reduced Operating Expenses – Reduces power consumption, eliminates operating system hardening and emergency vulnerability patching, and greatly simplifies configuration
- Reduced Capital Expenditures – Delivers higher capacity and the ability to block denial-of-service attacks resulting in fewer servers and a reduced need to over-provision
- Compatibility – Interoperates with existing DNS infrastructures, leveraging existing investments
“Secure64 has optimized its solution for the HP Integrity rx2660 Server so that it can provide ISPs, managed service providers and e-businesses a complete DNS solution that delivers impressive levels of security, performance and reliability, ” said Michelle Weiss, Vice President of Marketing, Business Critical Systems, HP. “The rx2660 was designed to bring the power, reliability and availability of mission-critical computing to a broader range of enterprise customers and the Secure64 DNS server application advances these benefits.”
Secure64 DNS is the first software application released by Secure64 based on SourceT®, a micro OS designed from the ground up with a secure architecture to make any application running on top of it immune to compromise from rootkits and malware and resistant to network attacks. Unlike other companies that secure products by hardening the underlying OS, Secure64’s Genuinely Secure approach locks down application code and data in hardware-protected memory that malicious code cannot penetrate.
“Secure64’s innovative new product is one of the first in the market to take full advantage of Intel’s hardware architected security protections that are unique to the Itanium® 2 processor,” said Kirk Skaugen, Vice President, Digital Enterprise Group and General Manager, Server Platforms Group, Intel Corporation. “The integration of Itanium’s security capabilities through Secure64 DNS on HP Integrity® servers helps to simplify and secure data center technologies that are connected to the Internet. Intel looks forward to continued collaboration with Secure64 to enable genuinely secure computing.”
“Our patent-pending technology capitalizes on the protection key-based memory compartmentalization, fine-grained memory access controls, large register sets and high instruction-level parallelism of Intel’s Itanium microprocessors,” stated Dr. Bill Worley, Chief Technology Officer and Director, Secure64, and the principal architect of both the PA-RISC and PA-Wide Word (the basis for Itanium) processor architectures. “This allows Secure64 DNS uniquely to address both the performance and security concerns that characterize today’s DNS environment.”
Secure64 DNS is available now and competitively priced at $9,995. Secure64 DNS can be purchased directly through Secure64 by calling 303-242-5890, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Secure64 DNS is currently supported on the HP rx2660 Integrity server, which can be purchased directly from HP or an authorized HP reseller.
Headquartered in Greenwood Village, Colorado, Secure64 is a software developer providing secure, self-protecting, high performance server applications. Secure64 has developed SourceT®, a Genuinely Secure™ micro OS. Designed by a world-class team of software engineers, SourceT makes applications immune to compromise from rootkits and malware, and resistant to network attacks, while also significantly boosting performance and reliability. Unlike other “hardened” software technologies that have been manipulated to minimize exposure to vulnerabilities, SourceT was built from the ground up to help organizations ensure the security, integrity and availability of their mission-critical applications. Secure64 has core patents pending covering its software technology.
