Nallatech and LeWiz Communications to Showcase Packet Pattern Search for 10GbE at RSA Conference 2014
FPGA-Accelerators with Pattern Search Technology Ideal for a Wide Range of Network Security Applications
Camarillo and San Jose, CA (February 20, 2014) –
Nallatech, a leading supplier of high-performance FPGA solutions, and LeWiz Communications (tm), a pioneer
of hardware-based stateful TCP/IP offload engine (TOE) technology, today announced that LeWiz Communications'
pattern search security core technology is now offered on Nallatech's high-performance FPGA-accelerator platforms.
Visitors to the RSA Conference, February 24-28, in San Francisco, Calif., can see a demonstration at booth #2339
showcasing pattern search at full 10GbE for packets as small as 64 bytes running on Nallatech's 385/395 accelerator
The integrated solution is ideal for pattern searching used in a wide range of network security applications
such as deep packet inspection, filtering and intrusion detection/prevention. Searching many different patterns
of binary or character strings dynamically is difficult, especially at line rates of 10Gbps or multiple
10Gbps ports. Utilizing LeWiz's technology ported to Nallatech's FPGA accelerators, 1024 patterns can be
simultaneously searched over each 10GbE port. Only matched pattern results are directed to different user
applications (or algorithms) for processing, which alleviates the user application from unnecessary overhead.
"We are thrilled with the results of our work with Nallatech that shows our pattern search technology
running on their FPGA accelerators," said Chinh Le, CEO of LeWiz Communications. "Pattern searching with
software requires a tremendous amount of computing power and still can drop packets, especially small ones.
Our hardware-based technology is a game-changer, providing superior pattern searching for security
applications over multiple 10 GbE ports."
"FPGAs are the ideal processors for handling the data flow processing that cyber security applications
demand," said Allan Cantle, president and founder of Nallatech. "Nallatech's FPGA accelerators allow
real-time processing without packet loss. Our combined solution with LeWiz's packet search technology
can quickly detect and fully respond to cyber attacks more efficiently."
Nallatech's 385 and 395 FPGA accelerators allow customers to combine the OpenCL programming model with
massively parallel FPGA architectures. This combination enables dramatic acceleration of compute-intensive
applications while reducing power consumption and total cost of ownership. Nallatech's accelerator cards
are also qualified by leading vendors' high density server and blade platforms and are ready for deployment
with pre-integrated software and IP.
