CloudShield Delivers Content Control and Security for 10 GigE Networks

CloudShield Technologies introduced a platform designed to help large network operators control and secure their move to 10GbE architectures. Specifically, CloudShield will provide a scalable, multi-use, multi-function content processing solution for operator-specific control policy and application requirements. CloudShield's compact CS-2000 platform will inspect, analyze and control network content - including voice, video and data - at faster 10GbE rates.

CloudShield's new Deep Packet Processing Module, the DPPM-800, supports a range of network applications for 10GbE in the CS-2000 chassis. While the DPPM-800 is specifically for the CS-2000, CloudShield's extended architecture is 'chassis neutral,' enabling deployments of CloudShield's high-speed network processing and content control applications within open blade server chassis as well.

  • In October 2005, CloudShield Technologies, a start-up based in Sunnyvale, California, raised $$10 Million in additional funding for its multigigabit, open network services platform for security, VoIP, and traffic management applications. The additional funding came from current investors TPG Ventures, ComVentures, Foundation Capital, and Paladin Capital all participating.

  • CloudShield's CS-2000 platform is designed to help service providers develop custom packet processing applications for emerging content-based services. The company also sees an opportunity with federal government agencies that need to harden their network security.
