BOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Crossbeam Systems, Inc., the leading provider of next-generation security platforms for high-performance networks, today announced version 9.0 of its open, secure X-Series Operating System (XOS)—laying the foundation to support fast and secure delivery of data over 3G and next-generation 4G networks. Crossbeam will be providing demonstrations of XOS 9.0 at RSA Conference 2010, March 1-5 in San Francisco, at booth #545.

Mobile operators are under enormous pressure to meet growing network demands, while simultaneously ensuring "clean pipes" delivery of data services. With XOS 9.0, the X-Series security platform provides the adaptability, manageability and performance that service providers require to secure traffic while scaling to meet the demands of 3G and impending 4G networks.

"As mobile commerce comes online, security will be a major chokepoint," said Jon Crotty, research analyst for Security Products & Services, IDC. "Users are increasingly turning to smartphones and other devices to conduct business online and browse the Web. The traditional approach to security is facing difficulty meeting these demands and carriers are looking at more consolidated, virtualized security models to eliminate security appliance sprawl while supporting growing data requests. Crossbeam has always been strong in this area, and the latest XOS enhancements deliver an enormous boost to carriers as they build out their networks."
