A10's Thunder Convergent Firewall Delivers 150 Gbps

A10 Networks introduced its Thunder Convergent Firewall (CFW), a standalone security product that leverages its ACOS Harmony platform for converging security and application delivery in a single appliance for service providers, cloud providers, and large enterprises. Firewall performance is rated at over 150 Gbps throughput and 5 million CPS in a one rack-unit appliance. A10's ACOS Harmony platform uses standards-based RESTful APIs to providing access to telemetry data and all aspects of configuration.

Some highlights:


  • High-performance Secure Web Gateway with integrated explicit proxy, URL filtering and SSL Insight. It enables security policy enforcement for client outbound HTTP/HTTPS traffic.
  • High-performance data centre firewall (DCFW) with integrated network denial-of-service (DoS) protection and Server Load Balancing (SLB). It provides Layer 4 stateful firewall and Layer 7 application-level gateway.
  • High-performance Gi/SGi firewall with integrated network DoS and Carrier Grade NAT (CGN). The Gi/SGi firewall protects the mobility infrastructure with advanced policy enforcement.
  • High-performance IPSec site-to-site VPN. It helps enterprises to secure application traffic between sites and it enables global enterprises to use public networks to transport application traffic securely.
  • aGalaxy Centralised Management System support for Thunder CFW. aGalaxy provides device management, configuration, reporting and troubleshooting for Thunder CFW.

"I'm thrilled to announce the industry's first solution that consolidates multiple converged security solutions in one package," said Lee Chen, CEO of A10 Networks. "Thunder Convergent Firewall provides a highly effective, highly scalable all-inclusive converged secured application network platform to protect organisations' assets. Thunder CFW is a testament to the power and versatility of the ACOS Harmony platform and we've worked with our customers in implementing some of the key security modules."

Juniper's New SRX5800 Firewall Hits 2 Tbps Throughput

Juniper Networks unveiled new hardware for its new SRX5800 Services Gateway firewall boasting throughput up to 2 Terabits per second (2 Tbps), empowering service providers and large enterprises will more capacity to minimize the potential for security bottlenecks as they manage increased and unpredictable demands for bandwidth placed on their networks.

The new hardware for the SRX5800 includes third-generation input/output cards (IOC3), an enhanced midplane chassis and third-generation system control boards (SCB3). Each IOC3 line card supports two packet forwarding engines (PFE), a high density configuration of 2x100GbE and 4x10GbE high speed interfaces. Additionally, it delivers 240Gbps bandwidth and 2X bandwidth increase over the prior hardware card.

The new product enhancements will be available during the first half of 2015.

Vyatta Launches Empowering SDN Initiative

Vyatta introduced its "Empowering SDN initiative" to help enterprises and service providers build an enduring software-defined networking (SDN) strategy.

Vyatta said the significance of its Empowering SDN program is the ability to take steps now, using established protocols like OSPF and BGP, to create agile, capacity-on-demand networks for the future.

In data centers, SDN could allow users to allocate groups of servers on-the-fly . Vyatta's software based routers, firewalls and VPNs enables enterprises to connect and securing these groups. Vyatta's code can be operated as virtual machines (VMs). This approach removes the constraints of a fixed device with a finite, predetermined amount of physical ports and other resources. The Vyatta VM can be replicated and positioned where needed, avoiding network congestion due to unneeded trips out to a central router. Additionally, software-based networks can provide significant savings over a large, proprietary router – leveraging the economies of the x86 architecture.

Vyatta also noted that its software-based networks are built on open source projects, resulting in code that has been downloaded more than a million times and tested extensively in production networks worldwide. Its code has demonstrated interoperability with a wide range of network gear and continues to extend its capabilities, adding to the management and API with a roadmap to include OpenStack, CloudStack and other emerging cloud provisioning tools.
