Huawei Symantec Leverages Multicore Power for Security Gateways

Huawei Symantec introduced a set of high-performance, multicore-based, unified gateway security solutions aimed at enterprise and data center customers in North America. These new security offerings deliver scalable, high-performance routing and switching capabilities as well as ultra-fast firewall, VPN, and content security capabilities.

Huawei Symantec's Secospace USG5500 series, which leverages multi-core architecture and FPGA-acceleration technology, can maximally support a premium density of 64-port Gigabit Ethernet and 14-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces -- enough to achieve 30 Gbps firewall throughput -- while offering powerful anti-virus, anti-spam, IPS and URL filtering capabilities. The new solutions ensure a secure network environment for cloud based service delivery, offering the protection, reliability and availability that meet demands while reducing overall costs for today's growing organizations.

Huawei Symantec, a joint venture between Huawei and Symantec, was established in 2008.
