Netronome Showcases Flow Processing Reference Designs for Cyber Security In Live Demonstrations at RSA 2013

Netronome, the leading developer of flow processors, today announced that the company will demonstrate hardware and software reference designs that enable market-leading performance and features for cyber security applications. The demonstrations are powered by Netronome’s flow processors and flow management software and open to registered attendees of RSA 2013, held February 25 - March 1, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California in booth No. 2339.

The live demonstrations showcase how flow processing is used in leading cyber security applications including intrusion detection (IDS), intrusion prevention (IPS), next-generation firewall (NGFW), SSL inspection, flow simulation testing, software defined networking (SDN), and deep packet inspection (DPI).

The demo will feature standard servers and market-leading applications accelerated by Netronome flow processors, including:

  • An OpenFlow™ 1.3 reference design for cyber security in software-defined networks.
  • Qosmos IxEngine™ for high-performance deep packet inspection with low CPU utilization.
  • Argon Design’s Blaster™ for ultra-low cost flow simulations and testing.
  • SSL Inspector™ for line-rate visibility of threats embedded within encrypted communications.

“The unyielding requirement for higher throughput combined with unrelenting changes in threats have caused flow processing to become pervasive in cyber security designs,” said Jarrod Siket, senior vice president of marketing at Netronome. “The demonstrations at RSA will show how global, tier-1 manufacturers of network and security equipment are using Netronome flow processors and software to shatter industry benchmarks in performance and security effectiveness.”

The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully been able to harness the excess capacity of privately owned vehicles and turned into a meaningful business. This concept can be step-functioned to harnessing the spare compute capacity of smartphones that can be orchestrated by MEC to provide cloud service at the edge.
All zSystem customers have a significant new business opportunity to extend their reach to new customers and markets with new applications and services, and to improve the experience of existing customers. This can be achieved by exposing existing z assets (which have been developed over time) as APIs for accessing Systems of Record, while leveraging mobile and cloud capabilities with new Systems of Engagement applications. In this session, we will explore business drivers with new Node.js apps for delivering enhanced customer experience (with mobile and cloud adoption), how to accelerate development and management of SoE app APIs with API management.
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.
The technologies behind big data and cloud computing are converging quickly, offering businesses new capabilities for fast, easy, wide-ranging access to data. However, to capitalize on the cost-efficiencies and time-to-value opportunities of analytics in the cloud, big data and cloud technologies must be integrated and managed properly. Pythian's Director of Big Data and Data Science, Danil Zburivsky will explore: The main technology components and best practices being deployed to take advantage of data and analytics in the cloud, Architecture, integration, governance and security scenarios and Key challenges and success factors of moving data and analytics to the cloud
For years the world's most security-focused and distributed organizations - banks, military/defense agencies, global enterprises - have sought to adopt cloud technologies that can reduce costs, future-proof against data growth, and improve user productivity. The challenges of cloud transformation for these kinds of secure organizations have centered around data security, migration from legacy systems, and performance. In our presentation, we will discuss the notion that cloud computing, properly managed, is poised to bring about a digital transformation to enterprise IT. We will discuss the trend, the technology and the timeline for adoption.
