DPI (Deep Packet Inspection), IDS (intrusion detection system) and IPS (intrusion prevention system) are a few of the critical infrastructures used in cyber security technology. They are frequently used in addition to other deployed hardware firewalls. Given the pace at which new applications are emerging and the data is growing, there is an increased demand for securing oneself from cyber threats. Hence, to achieve success without compromising on application serviceability and QoS (quality of service), a highly flexible system architecture based on software is required to build performant platforms for DPI, IDS and IPS.
Software pattern matching, compute intensive module, multi-core implementation, and hyper-threaded x86 architectures are an optimal and cost-efficient combination to boost network security performance. At RSA 2019, Lanner work with Intel® to showcase how Lanner’s all-new high performance 1U network appliance NCA-5710, powered by dual Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors, designed to improve its DPI performance by 600% with integrated accelerators like DPDK and Hyperscan technology.
