Netronome Unleashes Suite of Software Application Kits for Flow Processing in Cyber Security Designs

Netronome, the leading developer of flow processors, today announced the availability of a major upgrade to its Network Flow Management (NFM) software framework including new application kits for next-generation firewalls (NGFW), IPsec, intrusion prevention systems (IPS) and SSL inspection. Netronome’s NFM provides a comprehensive suite of production-ready reference software for the NFP-3240 network flow processors (NFP) that accelerates a wide variety of cyber security applications to industry leading throughputs.

“Netronome’s new software application kits provide an extensive set of building blocks for security applications,” said Joe Byrne, senior analyst at The Linley Group. “That enables OEMs to focus on development of their applications, while significantly increasing performance with Netronome’s flow processors.”

Netronome’s IDS/IPS application kit accelerates x86-based IDS/IPS applications through hardware-based packet classification, stateful management of flows, and an integrated, dynamic load balancer. The NGFW application kit augments the IDS/IPS use case with capabilities which allow policy enforcement and packet forwarding between multiple network segments using integrated L2 and L3 forwarding with network address and port translation (NAPT), IPsec VPN support and SSL inspection. Netronome is also making the IPsec and SSL inspection application kits available as standalone application kits for integration within other applications and use cases.

“Networking OEMs are designing 100 Gbps applications that require full visibility into all layers of network traffic, including encrypted communications,” said Jarrod Siket, senior vice president of marketing at Netronome. “With Netronome’s innovative, workload-specific processing architecture vendors can combine Netronome’s flow processors and software application kits with standard x86 processors to bring high-performance security products to market quickly.”

Netronome will be demonstrating these cyber security application kits during RSA 2012 at booth 2333.

Product Availability

The NGFW, IPsec, IDS/IPS and SSL application kits, and NFP flow processors are available now. Netronome production-ready hardware reference platforms are available directly and through its ecosystem. Pricing and configuration options are available, please email info@netronome.com.
