PARIS, France and HSINCHU, Taiwan (PRWEB) February 24, 2012
6WIND, the gold standard for software-defined networks and BroadWeb, a market leader in network content security technology, today announced a partnership to provide pre-integrated software solutions for Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), accelerating OEMs’ time-to-market while delivering industry-leading performance. 6WIND and BroadWeb will feature these solutions at the RSA Conference in San Francisco from February 27th through March 2nd (6WIND: booth 242, BroadWeb: booth 2133).
The proliferation of network applications such as gaming and peer-to-peer file sharing has created business-critical challenges for network administrators and service providers. Networks must be constantly monitored for intellectual property leakage and other types of abuse. Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology provides network administrators with better visibility and control, but the DPI subsystem must perform at line rate while incorporating signatures that precisely describe the behavior of attack and applications.
“6WIND and BroadWeb have worked together to integrate the 6WINDGate™ packet processing software with BroadWeb’s DPI engine, providing a best-in-class solution for network security appliances,” said Eric Carmès, CEO of 6WIND. “Performing single-pass scanning, the combined solution delivers a throughput of 20Gbps per core on a dual Intel® Xeon® processor platform with a clock speed of 2.67GHz. The overall system-level performance of our combined solution scales linearly with the number of processor cores configured to run 6WINDGate, enabling OEMs to deliver network security products that simultaneously perform both IPS and Application Identification functions at line rate.”
“DPI technology is integrated into network appliances more widely than before,” said Dr. Terence Liu, the CEO of BroadWeb. “The partnership between BroadWeb and 6WIND overcomes the performance bottleneck of DPI technology and offers OEMs improved time-to-market along with high efficiency. The combined solution can easily be integrated into a variety of network devices targeted at both telecommunication and enterprise markets.”
6WIND, the gold standard for software-defined networks, transforms mobile and cloud infrastructure by providing scalable, high-performance, low-latency networking software optimized for cost-effective hardware based on multicore processors, while enabling Network-as-a-Service capabilities that monetize network services such as bandwidth, QoS and security. The company’s 6WINDGate™ software delivers sustainable competitive advantages to network operators, service providers, system integrators and network equipment providers. 6WIND is a privately owned company based near Paris, France with offices in Mountain View, California, Seoul, South Korea and Beijing, China.
