RSA Conference 2020

for Cybersecurity Applications

At RSA 2020, we are thrilled to be demonstrating how our FPGA SmartNIC software and hardware can accelerate cybersecurity applications for a variety of use cases.

Leading passive, inline, and virtualized cybersecurity applications can achieve tremendous performance improvements through FPGA-based acceleration. Not only does this help you to strengthen your security posture by ensuring complete network visibility, it also allows you to minimize your TCO by reducing the number of servers required for security application hosting.

Our intelligent, flow-aware capabilities provide stateful awareness offering the ability for the SmartNIC to provide lossless per-flow action processing on behalf of the application to drop, forward, or redirect flows, thus reducing the data load on the application and massively boosting performance.

For virtualized security solutions, the Napatech SmartNIC dramatically increases server throughput while freeing up CPU cycles for more VMs and applications by offloading the virtual switching data plane. Because it is FPGA-driven, the software offers unique reconfigurability to add more capabilities on the fly beyond virtual switching, e.g. encryption and decryption.

Drop by Booth 3301 for a demo and see the stunning benchmarks achieved for a series of third-party, commercial and open source security applications.

Application Acceleration

By offloading heavy workloads to the Napatech SmartNIC, passive, inline, and virtualized applications such as firewalls, antivirus solutions, DLPs, and IDS/IPS can be greatly accelerated.

Examples include:

  • IDS/IPS, e.g. Suricata and Snort
  • Firewalls & next gen firewalls
  • Recording applications such as n2disk
  • Network monitoring apps like Zeek
