Network Appliance

With the development and popularization of cloud computing technologies, traditional network security providers are repositioning and moving their development efforts from network security solutions that can only handle single point security issues to a new generation of network security solution that are effective in big data and cloud computing environments. ICT equipment providers in the network security industry need network security servers that have massive DPI parsing power, full support for NFV and SDN, and a powerful big data processing engine. This equipment must also support dynamic capacity expansion and scalable IO extension in order to adapt to a more complicated cloud environment.

The network security requirements
ADLINK meets the network security requirements of e-businesses, enterprises, and service providers with Network Appliances that allow security solution providers to integrate next generation firewall (NGFW), virtual private network (VPN), intrusion detection system (IDS), traffic shaping, content filter, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI), Unified Threat Management (UTM) and anti-virus applications with industry leading performance, scalability, serviceability and manageability, all in one comprehensive security solution.

Application Ready Intelligent Platform
ADLINK Network Appliances are accompanied by the ADLINK PacketManager, a software package which includes Control Plane configuration tools and Data Plane processing acceleration capabilities. ADLINK Network Appliances provide increased packet processing speed and are ideal for Software Define Networking (SDN) switch and NGFW applications that require DPI and network virtualization functionality.

ADLINK Network Security Solutions
ADLINK’s CSA series of products are designed specifically for network packet processing capability and IO density, and are well suited for building next generation network security appliances for high-performance firewalls, DDoS attack prevention, web service firewalls, multiple service getaways, APT security protection and BYOD security protection.

Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture-Based Network Security Appliances
The Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture from ADLINK is intended to provide a new hardware architecture for the next generation of network security appliances. The three key characteristics of Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture are implied in its name: modular design, industrial features, and NFV and SDN support for building cloud computing infrastructures. At its core, Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture has assimilated the latest technologies from Internet data centers, particularly the latest advancements in NFV and SDN. At the same time, Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture has also integrated the aspects of traditional industrial computing equipment, such as modular architectures, hardware-assisted acceleration and carrier-grade design standards.

As a result, Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture can bring high performance to the cloud while meeting the network security computing requirements for rich IOs, hardware acceleration, and high availability. ADLINK’s Modular Industrial Cloud Architecture-based products are designed to meet the needs of big data and cloud computing applications.
