San Francisco, CA and Hudson, MA – March 1, 2016 – Corero Network Security (LSE: CNS), a leading provider of First Line of Defense® security solutions against DDoS attacks, will unveil its new Corero SmartWall Network Threat Defense - Virtual Edition (vNTD Monitor) at this week’s 2016 RSA Conference. The company will showcase the advanced capabilities of the Corero vNTD Monitor, a first-of-its-kind virtual DDoS monitoring appliance, at Corero’s booth #2526, located in the South Expo Hall of the Moscone Center in San Francisco. 

As part of the week-long agenda at the 2016 RSA Conference, Corero Chief Operating Officer Dave Larson will speak on the business opportunities and security challenges associated with software-defined networking (SDN), particularly in relation to DDoS attacks.

Corero Show Highlights

Larson will discuss the benefits that SDN offers to companies so they can better manage their networks, including IP, elasticity, and automation.
