Crossbeam Launches Security Switch

Crossbeam launches next generation X-Series security switch

BOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Crossbeam Systems®, Inc., the leader in enterprise and carrier-class Unified Threat Management (UTM) solutions for the world’s largest networks, today announced the availability of its next-generation X-Series™ line of security service switches. The new X-Series – featuring an architectural refresh of core network and security service processing capabilities – is the only solution to provide an open and extensible platform, purpose built for security, upon which best-in-class, certified interoperable applications can be integrated and exchanged as needed to respond to new and evolving threats.

As companies begin to deploy their 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GE) enabled, next-generation security services layer – one that takes into account the high volume of voice, video, data and wireless content traveling over converging networks – they need a solid security architecture that can support critical requirements for performance, availability and security that go far beyond what is available today.

Additionally, security functions are increasingly becoming outsourced through new “in-the-cloud” services, helping enterprises to offload management of basic security functions and focus more on protecting core assets. The ability of service providers to take advantage of this market opportunity and ensure “clean” delivery of new triple and quad play service bundles to millions of subscribers is driving the demand for a more rigorous and flexible security infrastructure that can scale.

“The next generation of the X-Series builds on Crossbeam's market-leading UTM platform with radical improvements in performance, intelligence and programmability that are simply unrivaled in the marketplace. It is a major leap ahead in terms of how we will be able to balance security measures with the demanding needs of our dynamic business,” said Wayne Sowery, enterprise security architect at Centrica plc, a global energy company.
