Hifn offers a broad set of products that protect information at risk while it is in-transit across the network or at-rest, stored on back-up arrays or tape devices. We are committed to developing new products and technologies that meet changing customer requirements and emerging industry standards.
Hifn transforms advanced technologies into value for our worldwide customers. The leading Networking, Storage and Security OEMs use Hifn solutions to accelerate, secure, classify, and compress information for their customers.
Hifn was founded in 1996 and is headquartered in Los Gatos, California. We make security acceleration and compression boards, silicon security solutions and software for manufacturers of networking, storage and security products. The advent of the Internet brought many opportunities for business and personal use. Unfortunately with those opportunities have also come vulnerabilities. Hifn has devoted the last 10 years to developing and building solutions that would minimize the security vulnerabilities without causing performance degradations. It is through some of Hifn’s pioneering efforts that secure deployment of technologies such as VoIP and enhanced application security with flow classification and search technologies can take place. Hifn holds a number of patents, as well as, patent pending technology.
Hifn is traded on the NASDAQ Stock Exchange under the HIFN symbol.
