New Corero Intrusion Prevention System Provides Elite Threat Protection

Integrated 3D Protection Performs Thousands of Inspections to Filter out Malicious Network Traffic and Advanced DDoS Defense Thwarts Application-Layer Attacks, Among Other High-Performance Features

Hudson, MA, August 30, 2011 — Corero Network Security (CNS:LN), a leading global provider of Network Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) and Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Defense Systems, has introduced the newest edition to its award-winning family of IPS products. Leveraging Corero's fourth-generation IPS platform architecture, the new, top-of-the-line IPS 5500-2400ES system enables enterprises, government entities, educational institutions and hosting providers to detect and pre-emptively block advanced cyber threats, both existing and emerging ones, in an easy to deploy, use, and manage, standalone unit.

Network security staff and management at Corero customer organizations – namely those who build their networks on 10GbE technology – benefit from the system's unrivaled detection and protection capabilities at 10GbE speeds.

Corero's Three Dimensional Protection (3DP) Platform includes a powerful stateful protocol analysis engine, providing the latest protection against vulnerabilities, worms, remote exploits, and application-level attacks; differentiated transparent firewall filtering that protects infrastructures against undesired access; and a three-stage DDoS defense engine, which protects against the effects of network layer and application layer DDoS attacks.

Flexibility, another key system feature, comes in the form of flexible reporting and deployment options. The scalable 10GbE IPS solution supports ProtectionClusterTM configurations which allow companies to easily scale the IPS solution resulting in unparalleled processing power and reliability. This enables customers to get the protection they need today while allowing easy expansion and performance as their network security needs grow.

"As more and more enterprises build their networks on 10GbE technology, the need for high-performance security solutions grows. Corero answers this need with our newest and highest performing IPS unit, the IPS 5500-2400ES," said Marty Meyer, CEO at Corero Network Security. "Corero's IPS provides unmatched levels of broad protection, high-reliability and high-performance, with 10GbE connectivity, 10GbE network throughput and the lowest IPS latency, that enterprises, governments, hosting providers and ecommerce businesses demand. The new system consumes significantly less power than competing 10GbE IPS solutions, reducing data center operating costs."

Customers deploy Corero's IPS 5500-2400ES unit in their 10GbE network as an in-line network device with hardware and software components. A few quick configuration steps later, their clients and servers are protected against the remote exploits, malware, and other network-borne cyber-attacks that might occur. This prevents downtime and revenue losses.
