Situational awareness in real time, or the ability to know what is going on in the network and what type of information is being transferred, is important to service providers. The need to secure the network and predict threats in real time, and as they develop, is paramount. Service providers are under greater scrutiny by their customers and regulatory agencies to be proactive in combating cybercrimes, especially those originating from their networks. The service provider that is able to detect and remedy these threats as they develop will gain a significant advantage in retaining and attracting customers as well as lower CAPEX.
Service providers face a continuously evolving security threat profile with ever more sophisticated modes of attacks. They require a solution that can detect threats in real time and adapt dynamically to a changing threat profile. This is a tremendously complex endeavor when dealing with massive volumes of data and in real time. The challenge they face is that current programmable solutions are incapable of the high performance levels required at the network bandwidths being employed. So, they must turn to specialized solutions which require specialized skills and much more time to develop. This translates into long development cycles, less flexible products and rapid obsolescence.
AdvancedIO enables the replacement of fixed-function network equipment with high performance programmable solutions that are able to evolve with changing business requirements. Our technology is used to create highly targeted solutions that combat some of the most challenging network security threats known. This technology brings programmable line-rate packet inspection capability at 10Gbps to bear against Botnets, and other high potency threats. This is in contrast to solutions that rely on a statistical sample of traffic instead of inspecting every packet.
Our technology has been deployed in appliances at the core network of Tier 1 carriers where they analyze every DNS packet (running Fast Flux DNS detection algorithms) for Botnet threats. For enterprises and service providers, the V8100 standalone appliance is ideal for cloud monitoring and analysis in real time. Its intelligent technology continuously monitors Domain Name Service (DNS) network traffic and helps suppress various botnet cyber attacks, such as denial of service or spam, by performing early detecting and reporting of suspicious network behavior. This scalable solution supports multiple 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports, has built-in storage, and is securely managed remotely without any additional client software.
AdvancedIO provides best of class programmable 10 Gigabit Ethernet FPGA cards and systems enabled with an easy to use application development framework for network security . Our team’s expertise is honed from years of providing solutions for the Defense, Telecom, and Financial markets. Customers rely on our expertise to deliver superior products on time and on budget.
