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

  • New Product: vNTD Monitor shifts traditional, appliance-based DDoS event visibility to Virtual Machine (VM) instances for more diverse deployment capabilities, and gives service providers more visibility to detect DDoS threats like the localized quick strike multi-vector attacks that are proliferating worldwide.

  •  Industry Perspective: Later in the week, Corero COO Dave Larson will present The DDoS Consideration for SDN Deployments at a special session at the 2016 RSA Conference. Larson will discuss the benefits that SDN offers to companies so they can better manage their networks, including IP, elasticity, and automation.
