NetOctave, a division of CyberGuard Corp. of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, has integrated F/X Communications’ IPsec Toolkit with its accelerator cards.

Based in RTP, NetOctave manufactures security processors and accelerator boards for the SSL (secure sockets layer) and IPsec (Internet protocol security) markets. The company was acquired by CyberGuard for $1.5 million in cash and stock last January.

F/X Communications, a supplier of software security products based in Denmark, manufactures an IPsec “toolkit” that engineers use when they are in the process of developing VPN products. The toolkit integrates with NetOctave’s accelerator cards.

“The relationship with F/X Communications is proving extremely beneficial to our joint customers,” said Jim Kristof, general manager of NetOctave. “Their product is fully interoperable, easy to integrate, and support is excellent. It’s much easier for IPsec VPN vendors to roll product out quickly using the F/X IPsec toolkit and our acceleration products.”
