Intel to Acquire Sensory Networks for DPI Pattern Matching

Intel agreed to acquire Sensory Networks, a start-up which specializes in pattern matching and acceleration software technology, for approximately US$20 million.

Sensory Networks developed "HyperScan" high-speed, L4-L7 pattern matching software that accelerates deep packet inspection applications running on Intel processors.  The company was founded in Sydney Australia and is headed by Sab Gosal.

In 2012, Sensory reported that its HyperScan library delivers DPI throughput of 160Gbps with linear scalability, based on an intensive benchmark of HyperScan on a dual-socket platform (8-core, 16 threads per socket) using the new Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 family and Intel C604 chipset, scanning against a tier-1 commercial IPS signature set. HyperScan fully scales across Intel architecture, extending from the Intel Atom processor to the highest performing Intel Xeon processor.
