HERNDON, Va., Feb. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Centripetal Networks, the leading provider of real-time network defense solutions, announced today the release of its next-generation RuleGATE® network filter, which can now be deployed entirely in software.
RuleGATE was originally developed to operate in the most extreme high-performance datacenters and carrier networks, and required dense, multi-core architectures. But today, after several years in development, Centripetal's R&D team has achieved another remarkable breakthrough in filter performance.
Thanks to its patented algorithms and purpose-built hardware, RuleGATE can now filter traffic against threat intelligence at unprecedented rates, including on commodity processors, virtual machines, and public cloud infrastructure — and without affecting user experience. Instead of multi-core processors, the RuleGATE system is now fully supported in software and on standard processors. Enforcement points can be deployed either on-premise or in the cloud. Perhaps most important, businesses of all sizes can now take advantage of RuleGATE's unparalleled threat intelligence capabilities.
"We transformed the networking and security industry when we first released our datacenter RuleGATE products," said Dr. Sean Moore, Centripetal's CTO. "Even today, RuleGATE's cyber-decision rates are unmatched. Now we can do entirely in software what our competitors still cannot do using inflexible hardware ASICs and FPGAs."
Today's cyber threats increasingly drive security teams to augment their security posture with expert-managed security services such as Centripetal's CleanINTERNET® service.
"This is a breakthrough for customers," said Steven Rogers, Centripetal's CEO. "Now our CleanINTERNET clients can realize the benefits of an intelligence defense anywhere, on any virtual or physical link, and at a very reasonable cost."
Centripetal's filter systems proactively defend enterprise networks against cyber attackers by leveraging an intelligence-led defense. Centripetal's systems and services are tailored to every type of enterprise environment in order to protect Internet connections from 100Mb to 100Gb speeds — at a range and level of performance that no other system can achieve.
