Myricom SIA

Server Offload for Processor-Taxing Applications

Accelerate encryption, compression, packet capture and classification

The Myricom Secure Intelligent Adapter, in 10Gb or 25Gb, is more than just a NIC card, it can improve server and application performance by offloading a variety of server-intensive functions, such as encryption or microsegmentation. Alternatively, it can run native applications, including third-party x86-developed applications, ported to run on its ARM cores. The Myricom SIA powerful processing power can easily handle and of the ARIA cybersecurity applications that enhance network security, perform key management, provide packet capture and classification, and offload encryption functions.
