Real-Time DDoS Protection Appliance

SmartWall® Threat Defense System

SmartWall TDS DDoS Protection

Service providers, hosting providers, and the online enterprise are all impacted by DDoS attacks, which have continued to grow in size, frequency and sophistication in recent years. Not surprisingly, customer expectations for advanced security have also grown. Enterprises are increasingly calling on their service providers to assist them in the detection, analysis and protection against Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks before the attacks impact their business. 

SmartWall DDoS Protection Appliance

The Corero SmartWall Threat Defense System (TDS) is a family of DDoS protection appliances that eliminate DDoS attacks in real-time.

These appliances deliver comprehensive DDoS protection in rapidly scalable deployments for higher performance, greater connectivity and broader functionality than ever before.

Organizations can deploy a combination of SmartWall TDS DDoS protection appliances to deliver the performance, connectivity and security required for advanced threat protection. In addition, with the SmartWall, customers benefit from progressive inspection, threat detection and protection. The DDoS protection appliance also allows for 24/7 visibility into DDoS attacks at layers 3 thru 7 for both IPv4 and IPv6 traffic.


  • The SmartWall is a slim line DDoS protection appliance that delivers 10Gbps full-duplex or 20Gbps unidirectional performance in a ¼ wide, 1 RU form factor.
  • 1 RU delivers up to 80Gbps, and 4 RU delivers up to 320Gbps.

SmartWall Network Threat Defense Appliance

The SmartWall is capable of mitigating a wide range of DDoS attacks all while maintaining full connectivity to avoid disrupting the delivery of legitimate traffic. It is designed to handle large network-based DDoS attacks or floods, reflective amplified spoof attacks, as well as application layer attacks that are typically too low to be detected by out of band solutions.

SmartWall Network Bypass Appliance

Network availability is the key to maintaining a constant Internet presence.  The SmartWall has network bypass functionality and with it organizations can ensure 100% network connectivity and eliminate downtime in case of power or equipment failures and during maintenance.

The Corero Management Server (CMS) 

Corero offers multiple management options for configuring, controlling, and monitoring the appliances including a flexible Browser-based GUI, a full SSH CLI and powerful REST API that supports open integration with existing management frameworks. 

Centralized management of the SmartWall Appliances is performed via secure connection to the Corero Management Server (CMS). The CMS includes a dashboard for monitoring threat activity and viewing key security events. The CMS is delivered as a virtual appliance to run on customer-provided hardware.

SmartWall & SecureWatch Analytics

The SmartWall TDS Appliances seamlessly integrate with a variety of Security Information
and Event Management (SIEM) and Operational Intelligence solutions, such as Splunk.

Corero leverages Splunk software for big data analytics and visualization capabilities that together transform security event data into sophisticated dashboards. The advanced security data and dashboards are accessible via Corero SecureWatch® Analytics portal. Organizations can utilize this portal as a window into DDoS attacks and cyber threats targeting their Internet-facing services.

Corero SecureWatch Analytics is included with the purchase of the Corero First Line of Defense products, as part of your DDoS threat protection investment.
