Emulex et Myricom annoncent la compatibilité des adaptateurs Emulex 10 GbE avec Surcata de l'OISF
Au Black Hat, Emulex et Myricom ont annoncé que les adaptateurs Emulex 10 GbE accompagnés du logiciel d'accélération des applications FastStack Sniffer10G de Myricom sont entièrement compatibles avec le moteur open source Surcata de l'OISF. Cette offre va améliorer les performances de traitement des règles, diminuer le taux d'abandon de paquets et améliorer l'utilisation des serveurs dans les déploiements IDS/IPS. Emulex et Myricom sont également membres de l'OISF.
Emulex OneConnect Network Xceleration Solution Provides Increased Performance with New Release of Suricata
Companies Join OISF and Demonstrate Increased System Security for Suricata Applications Using FastStack Sniffer10G at Black Hat USA 2012
Black Hat USA 2012 - LAS VEGAS, July 23, 2012 - Emulex Corporation (NYSE:ELX) and Myricom today announced that Emulex's new OneConnect® 10Gb Ethernet (10GbE) Network Xceleration™ solution with FastStack Sniffer10G™ application acceleration software powered by Myricom is fully compatible with the latest release of the Open Information Security Foundation (OISF) open source Suricata engine (Suricata 1.3). This technology combination delivers higher rules processing performance, decreases packet drop rates and greatly improves server utilization for Intrusion Detection (IDS)/Intrusion Prevention (IPS) deployments based on the Suricata engine.
"Intrusion detection and prevention at 10GbE rates is becoming increasingly important to large enterprises today because the risk of malicious attacks by industry predators is on the upswing and protecting the availability of data continues to be a business critical requirement," said Shaun Walsh, senior vice president of marketing and business development, Emulex. "Emulex's OneConnect Network Xceleration solution with FastStack Sniffer10G is the only standard 10GbE Network Interface Card (NIC) that can offer multiple buffer support for Suricata. This leads to a gain of up to two times the rules processing performance over standard NICs,1 resulting in increased system security."
In addition to improved rules processing, FastStack Sniffer 10G provides greater vulnerability protection with lower packet drop rates and improved server utilization with the ability to aggregate more 10GbE capture feeds per system.
"The integration of FastStack Sniffer10G packet capture/injection technology with Suricata enables customers to achieve higher performance, cost-effective IDS/IPS solutions for their security applications," said Dr. Nan Boden, chief executive officer, Myricom. "FastStack Sniffer10G is a clear example of Myricom's expertise in vertical market applications and our ability to deliver networking solutions that meet critical market requirements."
The Emulex family of OneConnect (OC)e12000 10GbE Network Xceleration solutions combined with FastStack Sniffer10G software provides a powerful, cost-effective solution for network traffic capture, injection and analysis for performance-sensitive and mission-critical markets, such as network surveillance, monitoring and analysis, deep packet inspection (DPI), and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) defense appliances.
FastStack Sniffer10G includes the following features:
· 100 Percent Lossless Packet Capture: FastStack Sniffer10G provides 100 percent lossless packet capture and packet injection for all Ethernet packet sizes within a 10GbE data stream. This line-rate performance enables more thorough inspection and better detection of threats for cyber security environments.
· Improved Multi-Core Utilization: FastStack Sniffer10G can distribute incoming packets over multiple CPU cores to not only improve CPU utilization, but also improve application performance through partitioning, parallelism, and process sharing.
· Increased Bandwidth: Port aggregation allows network traffic from two or more ports from the same or different OCe12000 adapters.
Emulex and Myricom are also now OISF Consortium members. The OISF is a non-profit foundation that has formed a multi-national group of the leading software developers in the security industry and a consortium consisting of many leading cyber security companies that engages the open-source security community to identify current and future IDS/IPS customer needs.
"As OISF Consortium members, Emulex and Myricom help us meet customer system integration needs and position us to provide cost-effective full life-cycle support for OISF open source solutions," said Matt Jonkman, President of the OISF. "The integration of FastStack Sniffer10G and Suricata demonstrates that strong partnerships between government, industry, and the open source community are drivers for the best overall network security solutions."
Emulex and Myricom will be demonstrating the rules processing performance benefits of FastStack Sniffer10G's multiple buffer support for Suricata applications using OISF-provided data and test rule sets to mimic a realistic IDS/IPS deployment this week at Black Hat USA 2012 in Las Vegas, Nev. at booth #141.
