COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Feb. 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Napatech™ (OSLO: NAPA.OL), the leading provider of reconfigurable computing platforms, today announced that it will be demonstrating stunning benchmarks achieved with its FPGA SmartNIC hardware and software for a series of third-party, commercial and open source security applications.
The company will be hosting live demonstrations at RSA Conference 2019, South Expo Booth 2257, from March 4 to 8 in San Francisco, California.
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 both inline and passive applications.
For virtualized security solutions, the Napatech SmartNIC dramatically increases server throughput while freeing up CPU cycles for more VMs and applications. Because it is FPGA-driven rather than ASIC-based, the software offers unique reconfigurability to add more capabilities on the fly beyond virtual switching, e.g. encryption and decryption.
Jarrod J.S. Siket, CMO of Napatech, said: "By offloading heavy workloads to the Napatech SmartNIC, passive, inline and virtualized applications such as firewalls, antivirus solutions, DLP and IDS/IPS can be greatly accelerated. Not only does this help customers to strengthen their security posture by ensuring complete network visibility, but it also allows them to minimize their TCO by reducing the number of servers required for security and network monitoring applications."
