STOCKHOLM, Sweden, February 19, 2014 – Enea® (NASDAQ OMX Nordic:ENEA) a world
leading operating system solution vendor for 3G and 4G infrastructure equipment,
is today announcing version 8.8 of the In-Memory Database Management System
Polyhedra®, adding a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) module to the product. The SSL
module is designed for protecting the communications between the database server
and client applications and also between the master and the standby, when
Polyhedra is being used in fault-tolerant configurations. The SSL module
improves the overall integrity of the Polyhedra-based system, and ensures the
confidentiality of data in transit.
Security is becoming an ever-more important issue, especially considering the
vulnerability of industrial control systems and Communications infrastructure. A
layered defense is necessary, where Polyhedra has the ability to use SSL
complementing other controls such as virtual private networks and dynamic
intrusion detection systems.

The Polyhedra SSL module allows cryptographic protection against a variety of
attacks, by offering data confidentiality and endpoint identification. It also
allows protection against replay attacks and man-in-the middle attacks.

The solution is best suited for systems that require data confidentiality or
protection against malicious attacks. Examples include the control systems for
factories, distribution networks (water, gas, electricity, etc) and
Communications networks.

Client-server architectures offers greater protection against accidental data
corruption than architectures where the database software shares the same memory
address space as the applications that want to access the data, but at the cost
of potential vulnerability against malicious attacks. The Polyhedra DBMS joins
other class-leading database systems such as MySQL in blocking this
vulnerability via the use of SSL, while maintaining the performance advantages
if a fully in-memory system.

The Polyhedra SSL Module is an add-on that can be purchased separately for use
with Polyhedra32 IMDB and Polyhedra64 IMDB.
