Let Suricata Excel

For Intrusion Detection implementations, missing any significant fraction of network traffic is unacceptable, as even a single packet not inspected by the Intrusion Detection System represents a blind spot for the security team.

Suricata is extremely skilled at detecting known threats, policy violations and malicious behaviors. However, as capable as Suricata is in reactively protecting a network, it will only be as effective as its implementation. If the CPU resources are overburdened and packets are dropped, Suricata will only have partial visibility. And this is often the limiting factor for Suricata performance: the packet processing on the CPU.

In addressing this challenge, Napatech has created a hardware acceleration solution that alleviates the load on the CPU and thereby greatly increases lossless Suricata performance. Highlights include:

  • 100G lossless throughput
  • 2x decode rate
  • IDS/IPS Support
  • Stateful Flow Awareness

Product Overview


Feature Overview



Reconfigurable Computing

The shift towards cloud networking, 5G and IoT is disrupting the way applications and services are created and deployed. With this disruption, the gap between growing data processing needs and available capacity is widening.

Reconfigurable computing is an evolution driven by hyperscale cloud companies to address this gap by combining the flexibility of software with the high performance of hardware. By using vastly flexible high-speed computing fabrics like Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) as a complementary processing alternative, compute intensive tasks can be offloaded, assuring maximum server performance and CPU utilization.

Napatech pioneered the use of reconfigurable FPGA-powered acceleration hardware and software for networking and security applications. Our Reconfigurable Computing Platform runs on our family of high- performance SmartNICs and helps IT organizations to support the growing number of demanding software applications required to do business today. By enhancing open and standard servers, we improve services, boost applications and bring hyperscale benefits to networks of every size.
