FREESCALE TECHNOLOGY FORUM, ORLANDO, FL — June 16, 2008 — Green Hills Software, Inc., the technology leader in device software optimization (DSO) and real-time operating systems (RTOS), today announced the availability of a secure, multicore-optimized networking and routing solution for the Freescale QorIQ™ processor portfolio. Based on the security and safety certified INTEGRITY® operating system, this solution defends against security threats by eliminating vulnerabilities commonly found in the core software of deployed telecom systems. Green Hills Software’s Platform for Secure Networking offers commercial-grade, field-proven, dual IPv4/IPv6 routing stack, cryptographic communications suite, and Layer 3 routing protocols including OSPF, BGP, and RIP. This high-performance integrated solution is optimized for both symmetric and asymmetric multiprocessing on Freescale’s QorIQ platform.

“Our customers are increasingly interested in the security of their networking equipment and other connected devices,” said Lynelle McKay, senior vice president and general manager of Freescale’s Networking and Multimedia Group. “By applying Green Hills Software’s extensive security and networking experience to Freescale’s QorIQ platforms, customers are empowered to create high-performance, highly available, secure networked systems.”

“Adding perimeter-based security onto general purpose operating environments that form the core of many existing networking topologies and infrastructures is like putting a padlock on a screen door,” said David Kleidermacher, chief technology officer, Green Hills Software. “Telecommunications manufacturers are increasingly turning to the combination of Green Hills Software and Freescale for a high-performance networking solution that helps protect against the growing threat posed by malicious hackers and pervasive security vulnerabilities.”
