PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Sensory Networks, a leader in content security acceleration technology, today unveiled the network security industrys largest ecosystem of applications designed to run on Sensorys NodalCore® acceleration platform. Applications such as Antivirus, Antispam, Antispyware and IPS/IDS from leading commercial vendors, as well as popular open source projects, have leveraged Sensorys NodalCore acceleration technology to offer multi-gigabit throughput performance while simultaneously scanning network traffic for millions of security threats.
The first commercial vendors offering accelerated applications in Sensory Networks Application Ecosystem include: AhnLab, Endeavor Security, Eneo Tecnologia, Exinda Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Intoto, Mail-Filters, Mailshell, McAfee, Message Labs, PC Tools, Sunbelt Software and ThreatMETRIX. Additionally, open source applications available include: Snort®, Clam AV, DSPAM and Apache Spam Assassin. These application partners join Sensory Networks core Technology and Appliance partners including Xilinx, Intel, NEXCOM International, Lanner Electronics, and Advantech.
In the new generation security appliance market, it no longer makes sense for appliance designers to develop and integrate all these applications in-house - general purpose architectures simply cannot provide the necessary processing power and meet the price vs. performance benchmarks sought by the market. By providing the performance engine for deep-content scanning of network traffic, Sensorys NodalCore acceleration technology off-loads application vendors from speed constraints and allows them to focus on their core competencies and features.
At Sensory we quickly recognized the critical importance of high-performance security applications for the emerging security threat management market, said Matt Barrie, CEO for Sensory Networks. As a result, our Application Ecosystem initiative provides appliance manufacturers with an extensive library of pre-accelerated applications built by tier-1 vendors, from which they can choose, integrate and quickly roll out.
