Sensory Accelerates IPS

Sensory Networks intros new software acceleration product line, providing 6 Gbit/s IPS performance

PALO ALTO, Calif. –– Sensory Networks, the leader in acceleration technology for network security applications, today announced the release of their patent-pending FastChannel™ and HyperScan™ software acceleration product lines. These products represent the industry’s first software-only acceleration technology that enables resource-intensive applications such as Intrusion Prevention (IPS), Antivirus (AV) and Content Filtering to operate at multi-gigabit throughput speeds on standard low cost platforms without the need for any specialized hardware. Setting a new performance standard, FastChannel can now run Snort® IPS version 2.7 at over 6 Gbps, with full coverage, operating using standard Intel® Quad- Core Xeon® processors.

“The throughput performance and scalability achieved by using Sensory’s new software on our Quad-Core processors was very impressive,” said Marwan Khoury, Director of Platform & Technology Enabling, Embedded Communications Group, Intel Corporation. “This proves the suitability of using Intel silicon for even the most advanced networking and security equipment.”
