NETWORK SECURITY INFRASTRUCTURE
Corsa scales network security so you get 100% visibility into all your traffic. Even if it’s all SSL/TLS encrypted, we can scale your decryption and security functions so you never ever have to worry about letting traffic into your network uninspected.
We begin with basic in‑line (L2 transparent) horizontal scaling for offload. With this approach, there is no need to decommission or repurpose your existing firewalls or other security platforms when they reach the limit of their processing capacity. Instead of spending money, time and energy tuning firewall rules and buying bigger firewalls, you can economically adjust capacity with horizontal scaling. From there, we expand this foundation of load balancing into a software-defined network security architecture that scales what and how much network security is needed in dynamic, virtual service chains augmented with IDS, IPS and DPI. The Corsa solution enables 100% traffic inspection and is key to preventing illegitimate traffic from entering or leaving a network all the while maintaining network performance.
Our architecture, a combination of best-in-breed merchant silicon and Corsa FPGA development, assures our platforms move traffic without hitting limitations. This internet-scale offering of advanced features with high precision flow forwarding is what sets us apart.
Corsa is a key part of large scale networks. There are 3 key attributes required for these high-capacity networks. Corsa delivers all three with performance Network Security, SDN Switching, and Routing equipment:
Internet scale line-rate flow-based forwarding
Automatic, real-time control for full programmability
Per-flow statistics and monitoring for advanced analytics, network diagnostics and dynamic network security
Corsa to Secure your Network
Leveraging the Corsa DNA of extremely performant flow forwarding, Corsa network security equipment is security services load balancing taken to the next level. It is a line-rate load balancer with unmatched raw performance. Corsa network security appliances are transparent, in-line L3/L4 devices that control traffic via operator-defined, programmable rules with a wide choice of commands: accept, drop, rate-limit, copy, redirect, GigaFilterTM ACL and more.
To create network security with dynamic service chains in the cloud, Corsa is the platform that scales network security with any combination of physical and virtual security services. This means dynamic and elastic network protection against cyber threats, any number of sources, all at line-rate. Visit our products page for more information.
Corsa to Connect your Network
Corsa has built performance networking equipment that is ideally suited for areas of provider networks with large amounts of fat pipe connectivity such as in the WAN or the metro edge.
This is a very different networking challenge from SDN ToR switching. Outside the data center, in the access, metro and WAN, the need is for open programmatic access with the big three: performance, flexibility and scale. And sitting on top of this raw equipment capability are features to enable the most advanced network services: network hardware virtualization, programmable networking traffic engineering, such as per subscriber class-of-service, and real-time per flow statistics.
