Caymas introduces company and products

Gateways designed for enterprise security

Caymas Systems made its formal debut Monday, releasing three identity-driven access gateways designed for control of internal and external access to enterprise data and applications.

Caymas was founded in 2002 by senior officials from Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, and Internal Security Systems (ISS) with a plan to give enterprises the power to control access to data by leveraging the identity of internal and external uses, devices, and applications.

Caymas’ three products – the Caymas 220, Caymas 318, and the Caymas 525 – are gateways designed to control access to information and applications across the enterprise. The Caymas 220 is designed for small to midsize businesses and supports as many as 100 concurrent users and 100Mbps of encrypted traffic. The Caymas 318 is designed for midsize to large enterprises and supports as many as 500 concurrent users and 300Mbps of encrypted traffic. The enterprise-class Caymas 525 supports as many as 2,500 concurrent users and 1Gbps of encrypted traffic. The gateways can be clustered together for even larger deployments.

The 220 will be available in the fourth quarter, while the other two systems are available currently. Despite formally announcing its products Monday, the company already has more than 30 customers ranging from financial services to retail. “We wanted to develop solutions that spoke to the real access pain points of medium and large enterprises,” said Terence Brown, president and CEO of Caymas. “Our Caymas 220, 318, and 525 gateways fill the gap that exists between the single purpose, limited VPN access products at the low end and the expensive overkill of access control software products at the high end,” he said.
