Leading MSSP Network Box Corporation Achieves IPv6 Ready Certification

HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 06/07/12 -- Leading Managed Security Services Provider, Network Box Corp., has achieved IPv6 Ready certification for its cutting-edge NBRS Ver5.0 OS Platform. Based on the latest Phase-2 4.0.6 test specification, the MSSP is the first, and so far, only provider of Managed Security Services to have had its proprietary managed security service delivery platform attain such a certification (IPv6 Ready ID number is 02-C-000779).

"The IPv6 support and innovation we've implemented are foundational aspects of the NBRS Ver5.0 OS," Pierluigi Stella, CTO of Network Box USA, "and while we do not foresee an immediate need to panic over IPv4, enterprises do have to prepare for the reality that IPv4 addresses will be gone for good, sooner rather than later, and that IPv6 will be the order of the day."

One of the new modules built into the NBRS Ver5.0 OS is an Input Translation module which undertakes the Internet's migration from IPv4 to IPv6 by providing cutting-edge IPv4-to-IPv6 bridging. As with some other UTM solutions, the NBRS Ver5.0 implements a dual-stack solution to address the migration, providing network stacks and support for IPv4 and IPv6, but that's where the similarity ends.

Mark Webb-Johnson, CTO of Network Box Corporation added, "The NBRS Ver5.0 enlists router-level technologies as well as high-level proxies and services to perform bi-directional translations between all combinations of IPv4 and IPv6. This enables IPv4 clients to seamlessly connect to IPv6 servers and IPv6 clients to IPv4 servers. The result is a network architecture suited for the present and future."

IPv6 Ready is an internationally recognized certification awarded to vendor products after they undergo a comprehensive set of tests that measure the compliance of the products' IPv6 networking stack against constructs; features; and behaviors defined within the official IPv6 internet standards.
