"January's revamped US export rules could create a windfall for Apache if Covalent lives up to its expectations. One of the first companies to offer comprehensive support and services for Apache Web servers, Covalent announced this week that it will ship its 128-bit encryption technology abroad for the first time. The company believes that the international release of Raven SSL, encryption software used to safely transfer data, could pump up the product's sales by 25 to 50 percent -- and possibly pave Apache's ascent into international enterprises."
"One of the biggest factors facing companies choosing their infrastructure technology is security, and Covalent has played a large role in bringing that added layer to Apache both through its commercial products and its contributions. Chairman Randy Terbush is one of the eight original contributors to the Apache Web server, and his company continues to be heavily involved in the efforts of the Apache Software Foundation."
