Napatech To Demonstrate How To Build 10g Ips

(PresseBox) (ANDOVER, Massachusetts, ) Napatech today released a new whitepaper on how a Universal Network Appliance approach can be used to develop highperformance Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS). At the upcoming Interop Las Vegas and Infosecurity events, Napatech will show a 10 Gbps IPS demonstration based on this approach.

"Napatech does not develop network appliances, but with this demonstration, we can show OEM network appliance manufacturers what can be achieved using the latest "Nehalem" class of industry standard servers combined with Intelligent Real time Analysis adapters" said Erik Norup, President of Napatech Inc. "We already have several IPS customers who have more than tripled their performance using this approach for both 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps IPS applications".

The development of network appliances based on standard PC servers and Intelligent Realtime Network Analysis adapters is gaining momentum as it promises to reduce cost, risk and timetomarket for OEM network appliance manufacturers, while at the same time providing a high performance platform.

"This approach takes advantage of the latest generation of standard PC servers, which provide unprecedented processing power and efficient memory architectures. When combined with Intelligent Realtime Network Analysis adapters it provides a hardware platform ideal for any network performance monitoring, test & measurement, network security and network optimization applications" added Norup.

"Building IPS solutions that can operate at 10 Gbps is not an easy task", said Rob Ayoub, CISSP, Global Program Director - Network Security, Frost & Sullivan. "The traditional approach has been to develop proprietary hardware, which is costly and timeconsuming. By basing network appliance development on a standard PC server with Intelligent Realtime Analysis network adapters, IPS manufacturers can take advantage of a highperformance hardware platform to reduce cost, risk and timetomarket."

The Napatech demonstration is based on a standard PC server using Napatech NT20E 2x10 Gbps Inline adapters for reception, preprocessing and retransmission of Ethernet frames. A separate Napatech NT20E will be used for full wirespeed 10 Gbps traffic generation.

Napatech will also be exhibiting at Interop Las Vegas (stand 2335) and Infosecurity in London (stand L70) from April 27 to 29

Napatech is the leading OEM supplier of multiport 10 GbE and 1 GbE intelligent adapters for realtime network analysis with over 60,000 Ethernet ports deployed. Napatech network adapters provide realtime packet capture and transmission with full linerate throughput and zero packet loss no matter the packet size. Intelligent features enable offload of data traffic processing and packet analysis normally performed in the CPU. This results in more processing power for the network monitoring, analysis, management, test, measurement, security or optimization application being supported. Napatech has sales, marketing and R&D offices in Mountain View, California, Andover, Massachusetts, and Copenhagen, Denmark.
