Corsa Will Once Again Participate in SCinet to Bring This High-Capacity Network to Life
OTTAWA, ON (Canada) – November 07, 2017 – Corsa Technology, the leader in performance SDN switching and network security enforcement, today announced that Carolyn Raab, VP of Product Management will present >Protecting Against Hyper Scale Network Attacks With In-Line 100G Filtering at SuperComputing 2017.
Additionally, Corsa engineers will be onsite demonstrating real-time detection of network performance issues using Corsa Red Armor NSE7000 and Bro IDS at booth #1490. Detecting network performance issues in real-time has always been a challenge for network operators. By adding NSE7000 transparently into the network, operators gain an extremely powerful network traffic acquisition point that can help not only with security visibility, but with network visibility overall. This control point is also deployed in this year’s SCinet network.
Presentation: Protecting Against Hyper Scale Network Attacks With In-Line 100G Filtering: Attendees will see how difficult it is to protect high capacity network links (100G) against increasing frequency and size of cyberattacks. The status quo of using gateway routers or firewalls can only manage to a point, especially in HPC environments where large data transfers are so prevalent. Raab will introduce a new concept of using an in-line programmable filter that can be added to networks transparently without needing to change any of the network’s architecture. This will be an interactive session where participants are invited to bring their network security challenges to the session for discussion. Corsa’s lead architect and CTO will also be participating in the session.
Who: Carolyn Raab, VP of Product Management
When: 2:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 15, 2017
Where: Room 503-504, Colorado Convention Center
Additional Information on SCinet:
As a regular contributor to the SCinet, Corsa is proud to play a role in operating, “The Fastest Network Connecting the Fastest Computers.” SCinet will link the convention center to research and commercial networks around the world. Corsa equipment and application engineering are involved in the WAN transport portion and network security elements of SCinet.
The WAN Transport provides network researchers programmatic control over their own isolated virtual forwarding contexts (VFC). This is accomplished using a SCinet infrastructure built on the Corsa DP2000 product family and its virtualization features.
On the security front, Corsa Red Armor NSE7200 control point is deployed in SCinet in-line with 10G booth connections to copy traffic for BRO analysis in order to show real-time detection of network performance issues.
