Corero Network Security has announced the expansion of its award-winning, real-time, DDoS mitigation solutions, with the SmartWall Network Threat Defense 1100 (NTD1100).
The SmartWall family of appliances now extends its real-time, line-rate, DDoS detection and automatic mitigation, to 100 Gigabit Ethernet connections. Protection is delivered in a compact 1 RU form-factor – an industry first – scaling to 4Tbps of protection in a single rack.
The expansion of the SmartWall product line is a direct response to leading Internet service providers, hosting providers and online enterprises evolving their businesses to realise the maximum value from their Internet connectivity and ultimately, their investment in DDoS mitigation.
"The evolution of our product reinforces our leadership role in delivering the robust, real-time, DDoS protection Corero customers are used to, while maintaining industry disrupting economies of scale. Corero continues to re-write the book on DDoS defense, with high security efficacy, matched with superior performance and overall value to the customer," said Ashley Stephenson, CEO, Corero.
The SmartWall NTD1100 is capable of supporting large-scale transit and peering point deployments with in-line protection or scrubbing-centre topologies, with benefits including:
- New extensible architecture, positioned for future scaling and support of virtual, cloud and SDN/NFV deployment models.
- Automatic surgical mitigation of volumetric DDoS attacks, in seconds, not minutes
- Comprehensive traffic visibility and DDoS attack analytics
- Centralised Management and analysis; offered as either physical or virtual appliances
The SmartWall NTD family of solutions is also available as a component of the Corero SmartProtect program, designed to enable Internet service and hosting provider operators to deliver high-value, premium DDoS Protection as-a-Service (DDPaaS) to their customers, with a disruptive pricing model which eases adoption.
