This is a copy of the C2Net Press Release from 22 Jun 1998


Oakland, CA (June 22, 1998)--C2Net Software, Inc. today announced it has become an Artisan Plus member of the Silicon Graphics Developer Program. "We endeavor to provide our customers with top-quality support, and working closely with SGI will enable us to better respond to the needs of our customers using the SGI platforms." said C2Net's Vice President of Development, Doug Barnes. "Thanks to the excellent assistance we've already received from SGI, we completed a recent port of our Stronghold secure web server to SGI's newest UNIX operating system, IRIX 6.5, in record time," he added.

C2Net's Stronghold web server is a secure implementation of Apache, the most popular web server on the Internet. Stronghold combines the power and flexibility of Apache with a proven, robust, 128-bit implementation of the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol used to protect sensitive communications over the Web. According to C2Net president Sameer Parekh, "Stronghold is fully compatible with Apache, which runs over half the domains on the Internet, making it by far the most popular web server in the world. That makes Stronghold the secure server of choice for serious commercial sites like ISP's and ICP's," he said."

"We are very pleased to welcome C2Net as a Development Partner," said Dave Boardman, Internet Market Development and Product Development Manager at SGI. "Many ISP's and other high-demand customers use C2Net's Stronghold web server for secure Web transactions. Our WebFORCE family of scalable, high-performance equipment is designed to meet the needs of those supersite customers, and C2Net's participation in our Developer Program is another way for SGI to provide those customers with the best possible solutions."
