TeamF1, Inc., the leader in embedded security, has launched a line of production-ready software solutions geared specifically to OEMs/ODMs serving the small-to-medium business (SMB) segment. The SMBware(TM) family of innovative prepackaged solutions gives OEMs the ability to bring to market differentiated, leading-edge devices for their SMB customers – and do so with much less risk and at lower cost than was previously possible.
The first member of the SMBware family, the Secure Gateway Solution (SGS), addresses the needs of OEMs/ODMs who build VPN/firewall/router devices. SGS offers ironclad, advanced networking security, easy-to-use device management features, and multiple gateway options in a preintegrated, production-ready form.
OEMs/ODMs can select SMBware modules from TeamF1′s currently deployed, standalone software products, other field-tested TeamF1 software modules designed exclusively for turnkey solutions, and modules from third parties. TeamF1 integrates these into validated customer-specific solutions to meet OEMs’ specific requirements.
“The customizable options available with our Secure Gateway Solution stand in direct contrast to the monolithic software packages previously available,” said Mukesh Lulla, CEO of TeamF1. “With SGS, ODMs/OEMs no longer have to use valuable in-house resources to engineer device software to their specific requirements. OEMs can now specify customized target applications – from drivers for custom hardware, networking and security features, all the way up to branded end-user management interfaces, and have them delivered in a very short time.”
TeamF1 worked closely with key hardware partners such as AMCC, Cavium Networks, and others to achieve tight integration with advanced processor architectures and native use of specialized hardware resources for higher performance and lower hardware/software integration risks for OEMs.
TeamF1′s Secure Gateway Solution is available immediately under flexible licensing terms including a source code license and a variety of production license (royalty) options. SGS is currently supported on AMCC and Freescale PowerPC(R), Cavium OCTEON(R), Intel IXP4xx, and other MIPS(R) and ARM(R) families of processors running Linux(R) or VxWorks(R).
TeamF1, Inc. a privately held corporation headquartered in Fremont, CA, is a leader in high-performance embedded networking and security software. TeamF1′s products enable secure networking of telecom/datacom and industrial equipment, and provide the infrastructure components needed for switching and wireless products in various market segments.
